Samedan

Samedan lies in the middle of one of Switzerland’s key tourism regions. Thanks to the central position, all regional touristic attractions are quickly reached, e.g. St. Moritz, Pontresina, the Upper Engadine mountain and lake world and the national park.
Its position on the «roof of Europe” gives the Upper Engadine around 322 days of sunshine every year, a very pleasant climate and a guarantee of snow in winter. The houses in typical Engadine style make Samedan particularly appealing. The Planta-Haus with its rich Sgraffiti (wall decorations in plaster) is now an excellent museum of patrician domestic culture.

Samedan is also one of the Rhaetian Railway’s key crossing points: lines lead to nearby St. Moritz, Chur, into the Lower Engadine, and especially - spectacular - over the Berninapass into Puschlav.

Summer

with a total 580km of hiking paths, the Upper Engadine offers vast choice. An educational nature trail with over 30 points leads around Samedan village. Samedan is also a stage stop for the Via Engiadina, the 10-day high-level hike through the entire Engadine. In addition, Samedan is perfect for almost all types of popular sporting pastimes, e.g. as a bikers’ paradise and mountain-climbing base, for Nordic walking fans, and also for skaters thanks to a skating piste around the airfield and the Innline Engiadina, an inline stretch along the waters of the jungen Inn.

Winter

Nearby ski regions at St. Moritz, Celerina and Pontresina offer superb winter sport: less demanding is Muottas Muragl with 3 facilities and 8km of pistes. Nearby Diavolezza (2973m) is popular for medium-difficulty pistes and splendid views The other ski areas in the Engadine are all easy to reach by car, skibus, railway and cableway, offering over 50 facilities and some 350km of pistes.

Highlights

  • Muottas Muragl (2453m) - the mountain on the Samedan doorstep, with views over the Upper Engadine lake landscape. Global warming theme trail in direction of Alp Languard.
  • Airfield - the flat plain gives Samedan plenty of space, even enough for an airfield with a flying school (gliders) and good thermals.
  • Rosegtal - traffic-free valley belonging to Samedan, easy hiking, biking or cross-country-ski tours, horse-drawn carriage and sledge rides through larch woods to the Hotel Roseggletscher.
