Apartments in Engadin

A holiday apartment in the high Inn valley

The Engadine is a high valley in the Swiss Alps that is a good 80 kilometres long and, in addition to the world-famous ski resort of St. Moritz, is home to numerous other holiday resorts and accordingly has a comparatively high density of holiday apartments and holiday homes. If you are looking for a vacation rental in the Engadine, you will find it primarily on the banks of the Inn, which cuts through the entire length of the valley.

Holidays on the lake shore

Places like Volsot, Scuol, Celerina, Sils, Pontresina and of course St. Moritz itself have the highest density of holiday accommodations. Accommodation is usually in the form of rustic houses, typical of the region, which offer space for several parties. In Silvaplana as well as in St. Moritz you have the additional possibility to set up your camp directly at the Silvaplanersee or at the St-Moritz-See.

A vacation rental on the roof of Europe

If you want to enjoy the absolute tranquillity of the alpine mountains surrounded by coniferous forests and steep cliffs where only a few ibexes can be seen, you will definitely find what you are looking for in Engadin. Both in the west of the Inn and in the east, as for example at Lago Blanco, you will find lonely vacation rentals and log cabins, where you can relax far away from the stress of civilization, but thanks to modern facilities and free WLAN you do not have to do without the usual amenities.

Vacation in Engadin

Location and orientation

Location of the Engadine

Located in south-eastern Switzerland near the Italian border, the Engadine high valley lies in the canton of Graubünden and forms the highest valley level of the Inn. Geographically, the highest and most permanently inhabited high valley in Europe is divided into the Lower Engadine and the Upper Engadine. While the Upper Engadine has a valley floor height of up to 1,800 metres and thus a highly montane climate, the Lower Engadine reaches down to an altitude of almost 1,000 metres, which also has an influence on the forest cover and the climatic conditions.

Arrival and transportation on site

To get to your vacation rental or apartment in the spacious Engadine, you will need a car in any case, as this is the only way to ensure that you have the maximum freedom and flexibility on site. If you do not arrive with your own vehicle but, for example, by coach, you can also rent vehicles in St. Moritz. Especially during a skiing holiday you should take care to carry snow chains with you, because on the sometimes snow-covered roads these are not only helpful, but also prescribed by law.

Things to know

Climatic conditions

The Engadine is known above all for its many sunny days, which, however, cannot prevent it from getting quite fresh in summer due to the altitude. Especially if you are out in nature until late in the evening, you should not leave your sweater in the holiday home. In winter, thick clothing is obligatory when skiing. The low temperatures of up to 20 degrees Celsius below zero are nevertheless perceived as pleasant by the winter sun.

Best travel time

Climatic differences also exist between the Upper and Lower Engadines. While in the Lower Engadine the 30 degree mark often falls in summer, this is rarely the case in the Upper Engadine. Due to the diversity of the region and its activities, the Engadine is worth a trip all year round. In the absolute high season between December and March, you should book your vacation rental as early as possible.

According to historians, the name Engadin derives from the tribal name Celtic "Eniates", which means as much as residents of the Inn.

Top 3 travel tips

1. A visit to the national park

The Swiss National Park extends in the southeast of the Engadine and covers an area of 170 square kilometres where nature has been completely left to its own devices since 1914. On more than 80 kilometres of hiking trails you can take guided tours through the park, follow nature trails or simply spontaneously set out to explore the biodiversity of the Engadine. With a little luck you may also see some rare species such as ibex and chamois.

2nd sky observation in the Alpine Astro Village

Since 2009, a state-of-the-art observatory has been enthroned on the Lü terrace at an altitude of a good 2,000 metres. It is open all year round and offers both large and small astronomers the opportunity to enter the fascinating world of astronomy. During a three-hour guided tour you will learn how to orientate yourself in the night sky, operate a telescope or take great photos of galaxies and planets.

3. Culinary delicacies from the Engadine cuisine

The Engadine cuisine is famous for its diversity and, in addition to Bündner Früchtebrot and Engadiner Nussorte, which serves as a popular souvenir, also includes hearty fare such as Bündner Fleisch and traditional mountain cheese. On your expeditions through the villages of the Engadine you should not miss potato dishes such as Plain in Pigna.
