Trip Report Scuol & Tarasp: Insider tip

Jump to last reply

I've just come back from a brief stay in Unterengadin.

Highlights during my stay:

- The walk along the parallel street above Scuol's shopping mile.

Scuol's main road is loaded with cars, tourists and shops. If you can find a way to get to the street right above, you'll be rewarded with beautiful typical Engadin houses on a cobblestone road and, at the end near the post office and bus station, you'll find Hotel Guarda Val and its beautiful terrace. The terrace offers better views than the restaurants below. Prices aren't cheap but the views are even better than the terraces restaurants along the main street.

- Tarasp Castle: The no 2 most interesting castle in Switzerland (with no. 1 being Schloss Chillon)

This castle can only be seen during a guided tour, which are offered a few times a day. The cost is 12 Francs and its worth it. The castle has been renovated and the antiques and history are ever-present. Even if you don't understand German, take the tour anyway because its the only way you'll be able to see the jewel of Unterengadin.
