St Moritz Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan

  Excursions from St Moritz, Switzerland
Using St Moritz as your base you can easily visit the nearby Engadin Valley towns of Silvaplana, Pontresina, Diavolezza, the Swiss National Park, and more.


Engadin Valley

St Moritz is located in the broad, long Engadin Valley (map) extending from Bever and Samedan to St Moritz, then through Champfèr, Suvretta, Silvaplana and Sils to the Maloja Pass (1786 m/5955 ft); and from Punt Muragl through Pontresina to Morteratsch and the Bernina Pass (2286 m/7621 ft). Every town in the valley has a special beauty or attraction.


An unspoiled Swiss mountain village on the shores of Lake Silvaplana, near Lake Champfèr, just 6 km/4 mi southwest of St Moritz.


Noted as a ski center, it is also the place to board the Muottas Muragl funicular that takes you from the valley floor to an altitude of 2414 m/8048 ft) for spectacular views.


Perhaps the most dramatic views in the region from a 2978-m/9770-ft alpine peak reachable by road or cablecar.
