Beautiful Engadin is suffering

Jump to last reply

Beautiful Engadin is suffering due to the lack of tourists as a result of the high Swiss Franc.

As tourists flock to the Berner Oberland because of its accessibility and beauty, the Engadin often gets forgotten. Its location, nestled high in the mountains somewhere between Italy and Austria, is a blessing and a curse. The quaint villages, the peaceful surroundings, its beauty and the lack of mass tourism makes it an ideal holiday destination. Unfortunately, its not one of those places you can "easily tack on" to your Swiss itinerary and often gets forgotten in the rush.

The Engadin is more than just St. Moritz. In fact, I'd say avoid St. Moritz and wallow in the gorgeous villages surrounding it and take advantage of the cultural delights, the Bernina Express, as well as the magnificent scenery that greets you everywhere you look. Both upper and lower Engadin are dotted with historic, untouched villages that take you back to a simpler place in time while still offering the amnetities of the present.

I have three favourite places in Switzerland: Central Switzerland, the Engadin and Tessin. Here's a shout out to those who are considering visiting Switzerland's iconic Engadin and need that extra motivation to say, "let's put it on our itinerary."
