Need help: Sils vs. Pontresina as base for hiking?

Jump to last reply

We will have 4 days in the Engadine in mid June. Is Sils or Pontresina a better home base for day hikes? What wld be the main difference between the two?
i can't tell if Pontresina is a busy city.

We want a charming village/small town with someplace where we cld walk after dinner, maybe a few shops. Easy access/short times to get to hikes. Not much driving needed. We probably will have a car. We loved Wengen.

Is Sils or Pontresina a better base? I'd also love to get hotel recommendations for each place. We'd like half board and around $300/nite.

If Sils, which hotel? We'd like one with half board. Don't need a spa, etc. is there anything around the Hotel Chesa Randolina? It might be too isolated. is a hotel in Sils Maria better located?
