AN ENDURING LEGACY Engadin St. Moritz

The FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2017 in St. Moritz were a major event for the region, one that will live long in our memory. The impact of this celebration of alpine ski sports extends well beyond the occasion itself. The championships offered social, economic and environmental opportunities to the Engadin and to Switzerland that enable an enduring legacy. You can find the report on this legacy at www.engadin.stmoritz.ch/legacy from summer 2017. The Engadin Ski Marathon is another wonderful legacy. This winter, it celebrates its 50th anniversary, having become one of the most eagerly awaited events of the calendar. The initiator and “spiritual father” of the event was the St. Moritz sports dealer and former ski racer Albert Scheuing. It is thanks to him and the various organising committees over the course of half a century that some 13,000 cross-country skiers now tackle the impressive and challenging route of the Engadin Ski Marathon each year in March. Another legacy, already thousands of years old, has endured to this day: the mineral springs of St. Moritz. These are the highest in Switzerland and have embodied life-giving energy for 3,000 years. No wonder it was these springs that founded St. Moritz’s legendary reputation. Ever since the Bronze Age, people have come to bathe in St. Moritz’s mineral water, and the tradition continues to be cherished. The Engadin St. Moritz holiday region also encompasses an exceptional wealth of contrasts. Here, you are sure to find all you need for an unforgettable holiday, whatever your budget. Yours, The Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation

Snow-covered slopes sparkling in the sunshine frame a wide, high valley of bewitching beauty. The Engadin has repeatedly won the coveted ADAC ski guide award for the Alpine ski region with the greatest variety, alongside other honours including the prestigious British Travel Award. At the four large ski areas of Corviglia/Piz Nair, Corvatsch, Diavolezza/Lagalb and Zuoz, as well as at five smaller but charming areas, skiers and snowboarders find a total of 88 superb pistes waiting to be explored. Beginners, intermediates and experts alike discover slopes perfectly suited to their ability. Thanks to the high altitude and the modern artificial snowmaking facilities, Engadin St. Moritz is famously snowsure, while the dry climate guarantees superb powder. Throughout the area, 74 mountain and excursion restaurants promise mouth-watering gastronomic variety. Another special attraction of the region is the early start to the season: up on the Diavolezza, snow sports enthusiasts can indulge their passion as early as 21 October 2017.

Ski and snowboard activities with a difference A wide choice of activities on the pistes guarantees endless holiday variety. For example, Corvatsch Snow Night on Friday evenings promises a party atmosphere and the chance to tackle the longest floodlit slope in Switzerland – great fun for skiers and snowboarders alike. On all other evenings, enthusiasts can book a private Snow Night – the ultimate exclusive ski experience. You can even ski or snowboard all day long without repeating a single run: the Snow Safari offers a panoramic tour of several different ski areas. “Glüna Plaina”, which means “full moon” in Romansh, is a thrilling evening event that starts with a delicious meal at the summit restaurant on the Diavolezza and ends with you gliding down deserted slopes to the valley in the silvery moonlight. White Carpet Corviglia At 7.45am, the cableways swing into action, and as the sun peeps above the snow-capped ridge, you are already gliding up to the heights. Soon after eight, you are standing at the top of freshly prepared pistes, with barely a soul in sight – and all the space in the world to carve the very first tracks down to the valley floor.

“Hotel and Ski Pass” offer Enjoy superb skiing and snowboarding with the unbeatable “Hotel and Ski Pass” offer. Stay more than one night at any participating hotel and you can purchase a ski pass for CHF 38.– per person/day for the duration of your stay.

Winter walking A map showing all the winter walking trails is available from local tourist information offices or online : www.engadin.stmoritz. ch /winter-hiking-map

Experience the fairy-tale charm of our delightful winter walking trails. The Engadin St. Moritz region has 150 km (93 miles) of winter walking paths and trails waiting to be explored. Cosy cafes and restaurants along the way offer the chance to stop for a welcome rest. On a stroll across the frozen Engadin lakes, you appreciate the vast expanse of the high-lying valley and, especially at sunset, the magical quality of the light in the Engadin. The flat winter walking paths from Maloja to Silvaplana and on to St. Moritz are perfect for families – depending on snow conditions, with pushchairs, too. For a particularly picturesque winter walk, follow the path from Sils into the romantic Val Fex, or from Maloja through the snow-blanketed forest to the frozen Lake Cavloccio. Those setting their sights higher can follow the Philosophers’ Trail up on Muottas Muragl. Along this idyllic winter walking trail, seats furnished with woollen blankets invite walkers to reflect on the breathtaking beauty of the landscape all around.

Snowshoe treks With snowshoes on your feet, you are free to explore the pristine forests and snow-blanketed plateaus at your own pace – a magical adventure for anyone seeking tranquillity and adventure off the beaten track. In recent years, Maloja has made a name for itself among enthusiasts as a paradise for snowshoeing, while Madulain offers an idyllic evening snowshoe trek followed by a fondue dinner in a cosy alpine hut.

Snowkiting Snowkiting is like kitesurfing, only on skis or a snowboard. A favourite venue is the frozen Lake Silvaplana, where you glide over the snow pulled by a kite powered by the Maloja wind.

Ice sports

Madulain Ice Path Ice skating enthusiasts will love this beautiful open-air trail through the meadows along the left bank of the Inn. The light effects on the frozen river, views of the historic village heart and the sense of peace in the valley f loor are enchanting. The path is 1,000 metres (1,100 yards) long and begins at the works yard, where parking is available. Further details: www.engadin. stmoritz.ch /ice-path-madulain

Every village in the Engadin has an ice rink, where locals and visitors can skate, play ice hockey or hold a curling match. Some are also floodlit and open in the evening.

Ice climbing The ice climbing gorge in Pontresina and the various frozen waterfalls attract experts and novices to the Engadin from far and wide. The Pontresina Mountaineering School offers a variety of courses at all levels.

UNESCO World Heritage The “Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina landscapes” is one of the world’s most spectacular narrow-gauge railway lines and features on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites. The Albula and Bernina lines are fine examples of the ingenuity and innovation of the railway pioneers who opened up the high-alpine landscape. Bernina Express From St. Moritz, the train winds in tight bends along walls of snow and past the Bernina massif as it climbs to the Bernina Pass at 2,253 metres above sea level (7,392 ft). From here, the panoramic carriages glide down through the Valposchiavo, a valley full of southerly charm, on their way to the palms of Tirano in Italy.


Mountain adventure

Bernina Glaciers The Bernina Glaciers project offers a chance to experience the full variety of the spectacular glacial landscape of the Bernina region be­ tween the Engadin and the Valposchiavo. Three connecting elements – glaciers, energy and time – are the focus of a range of attractions and exciting adventures in nature. Glacier Express Treat yourself to one of the most spectacular of all journeys through the Swiss Alps, from St. Moritz to Zermatt. Along the way, enjoy a freshly prepared lunch served at your seat as you watch the breathtaking mountain scenery glide past the panoramic windows. Alp Grüm full-moon trip The evening begins with a ride in a panoramic carriage of a special train from St. Moritz to Alp Grüm, where drinks and a glacier fondue are served. The trip back through the snowy mountains sparkling in the light of the full moon is bewitchingly beautiful. Excursions by PostBus The picturesque village of Soglio in the Val Bregaglia is one of many charming destinations you can visit in comfort by PostBus. Other scenic options include a trip to the Italian market town of Chiavenna or a ride on the Palm Express along the shores of Lake Como to Lugano. A bird’s-eye view of the Engadin The highest pinnacles of the Eastern Alps seem close enough to touch on a thrilling helicopter ride over the Bernina massif. If you like to feel the wind in your face as you fly, you may prefer a tandem descent by hang-glider or paraglider with a qualified pilot: a gentler experience, but just as memorable. Top tobogganing: Preda/Darlux–Bergün The Rhaetian Railway’s special toboggan excursion combines a ride on the world-famous Albula line with some of the best tobogganing in the Alps. The train journey through twisting tunnels and over giddy viaducts is one of the most dramatic in Switzerland. From Preda, at 1,800 metres above sea level (5,900 ft), you toboggan 6 bracing kilometres (4 miles) all the way down to Bergün.

Fair y-tale winter landscape by the River Inn, near Celerina

The wonderful climate of the Engadin Ice stupas in Pontresina Local glaciologists and architects, in collaboration with the Indian engineer Sonam Wangchuk, have managed to create Europe’s first ice stupa. These cones of ice, which serve as water storage, are up to 20 metres high and aim to draw attention to the melting of the glaciers.

The Engadin’s elevated location, high in the Alps, creates unique weather patterns. Experts refer matter-of-factly to a dry, continental climate. As variations in temperature between day and night are as great as those between summer and winter, conditions for winter sports are superb. The dry cold preserves the freshly fallen snow so that the landscape keeps its white, fairy-tale appear­ ance throughout the winter, and sports enthusiasts enjoy powder conditions rivalled only by those in the Rocky Mountains. All the same, this southerly mountain valley enjoys exceptionally high levels of sunshine.


Pristine nature

Page 27

The Engadin lakes In winter, the Engadin lakes freeze over and are covered by a thick blanket of snow, creating a vast white expanse that adds to the sense of boundless freedom of this inspiring, high-lying valley. These wide-open spaces offer visitors a beautiful setting for walking, cross-country skiing and snowkiting, and provide a dramatic venue for exclusive events such as the spectacular Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz, the legendary White Turf horse races and the traditional Engadin Ski Marathon.

Sparkling snow crystals The combination of low temperatures, dry air and snow makes everything in the Engadin sparkle. On particularly cold, sunny days, the air appears to be full of millions of tiny diamonds, glittering in the sunlight. Unusual phenomena take place on the ground, too – for example, in the Val Trupchun. As the sun rarely reaches the valley floor in winter, snow crystals grow up to 4 centimetres (2 inches) across and glisten magically in the light.

National Park Centre, Zernez Explore, discover and learn in a thrilling and creative setting: at the four interactive exhibition areas of the Swiss National Park’s visitor centre in Zernez, guests experience the endless and enchanting variety of nature in a completely new way. Further information: www.engadin.stmoritz.ch / national-park-centre

White giants: the glaciers of the Engadin Horse-drawn sleigh rides Among the highlights of the magnificent Engadin landscape are the 173 glaciers. Draped majestically around the highest peaks of the Eastern Alps, they extend for more than 40 square km (15 square miles), making up four per cent of the region’s surface area. Crowning them all is the Morteratsch Glacier – at around 7 km (4.5 miles), the longest in the Engadin. Other glaciers, too – with evocative names such as Roseg, Tschierva, Sella and Pers – bear witness to the power of nature. Hidden under a winter blanket of snow, however, the ice giants are barely discernible. At most, you can make out the odd crevasse, offering a glimpse of the eerie blue interior. Just as intriguing are the ice caves, created in summer when the relatively warm meltwater makes its way out of the glacier. Exploring the ice giants independently, however, is dangerous; anyone seeking to discover the glaciers’ secrets is well advised to book an expert guide.

One of the most relaxing and enjoyable experiences on offer in the Engadin is a romantic ride in a horse-drawn sleigh into one of the idyllic side valleys or along the snow-covered frozen lakes. You can arrange rides directly with the sleigh drivers; local tourist information offices provide full details of the various services on offer.

The elegant resort of St. Moritz was the birthplace of winter tourism in 1864. Since then, two Olympic Winter Games (in 1928 and 1948) and numerous ski and bobsleigh world championships have sealed its unique global reputa­ tion. During the winter months, the glamorous atmosphere in St. Moritz and on the beautiful mountain on its doorstep, the Corviglia/Piz Nair, promise a ski experience of a very special kind. Champagne climate St. Moritz is also famous worldwide for its “champagne climate” – not a reference to its champagne-drinking guests, but to the sparkling and invigorating climate of the Engadin, which in winter is character­ ised by exceptionally dry, clear air. Olympia Bob Run, St. Moritz–Celerina The Olympia Bob Run from St. Moritz to Celerina is the oldest bob run in the world – as well as the only naturalice track that still hosts international races annually. Over a history lasting

more than 110 years, it has staged two Olympic Winter Games as well as 20 world championships. You can find out what it feels like to hurtle down the 1,722-metre (1,883-yard) natural-ice bob run by booking a guest ride with a professional pilot and brakeman, experiencing speeds of up to 135 km/h (84 mph). Cresta Run The legendary Cresta Run in St. Moritz is the birthplace of the sport of skeleton racing. With a length of 1,200 metres (1,300 yards) and 10 corners, the Cresta – like the bob run – is built anew every winter using snow and water. Riders hurtle down it at an average top speed of around 130 km/h (80 mph) – travelling head-first, chin a mere 10 cm (4 in) above the ice. Magical St. Moritz St. Moritz’s elegant and renowned 5-star deluxe hotels delight guests with their glamorous atmosphere and world-class restaur­ ants, but hotels in other categories also enjoy great popularity thanks to their consistently high quality. In addition, numerous fine restaurants crowned with Michelin stars (6 in all) and GaultMillau points (426 in all) serve a wealth of gastronomic treats to please every palate. Stroll around St. Moritz’s shops and you are guaranteed some happy surprises. Elegant designer boutiques, traditional sports suppliers, tempting souvenir and gift shops, and mouth-watering delicatessens all add to the wide variety of shopping on offer in this chic Alpine town. Turn into one of the small side alleys and you will find quaint shops where you can pick up genuine Engadin products – and perhaps make the odd lucky find to round off your shopping adventure. The resort’s glittering array of nightspots extends from the historic bars of the grand hotels to fashionable lounge bars, legendary clubs and a wealth of other venues – including the Casino St. Moritz at the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains.

St. Moritz – since 1864 Winter tourism was born in St. Moritz in 1864, when the first British tourists spent the winter in the Engadin. The var­ iety of activities and attractive lifestyle form the basis of a successful tourism sector through­ out the region – in particular, superb skiing and a wealth of high-class international events. Over 150 years, the range of tourist facilities and services has expanded steadily and will continue to grow, ref lecting the region’s youthful energy and pioneering spirit of innovation.

REBIRTH OF A CL ASSIC

Opening ceremony of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2017 in the Kulm Park St. Moritz with Edy

As the World Ski Championships 2017 launched in St. Moritz, an iconic building reopened, more splendid than ever: the Kulm Country Club. This architectural gem in the grounds of the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz, built more than 110 years ago, served as the venue for the international event’s medal ceremonies. The ice pavilion stands as a memorial to the Winter Olympic Games of 1928 and 1948 in St. Moritz, and is a protected monument. Built in 1905 during the Belle Époque, this popular meeting place is now enchanting a new generation of guests following a renovation and extension project for which the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz managed to engage the leading British architect Lord Foster. Inter­ nationally renowned for his spectacular schemes in London, Berlin, California and elsewhere, he had already made a mark on St. Moritz with his futuristic Chesa Futura. For the Kulm Country Club project, Lord Foster worked with the local architect Arnd Küchel.


St. Moritz

Renovation with a focus on original features The first floor of the building now houses a restaurant with terrace, which will also host a variety of temporary exhibitions on themes from the Olympic Games and sports to nature and culture. Wood plays a major role both externally and internally, and historical wooden features continue to dominate the overall effect following renovation. The local architect, Arnd Küchel, placed great importance on retaining original Art Nouveau elements and wooden décor. Where necessary, windows and doors were rebuilt in the original style, and even the historical wooden windows were painstakingly restored. The grandstand of the ice pavilion, with its elegant wooden superstructure, is another eye-catching feature and, according to Arnd Küchel, a masterpiece of structural design. A smaller counterpart, the “sun pavilion”, is attached to the Restaurant Chesa al Parc: a stylish setting in which to soak up the sun. Throughout, great attention was paid to preserving historical detail, as shown by an­ other example: the entrance door, painted red. This is no eccentricity of the architect, but a reconstruction, true to the original.

The living spirit of the Winter Olympics Following renovation, the old heart of the complex – the entrance area, with its impressive staircase – once again radiates the same dynamic aura that delighted guests at the first Winter Olympics nearly 90 years ago. During the games of 1928 and also 1948, the Kulm Country Club served as headquarters for the figure skaters. For visitors to St. Moritz and locals, too, the ice rink soon became a popular meeting place. The careful renovation of the ice pavilion has preserved beautifully the unique combination of Art Nouveau and traditional local style, and today the restored building is as full of charm as ever.

At typical Engadin restaurants, with their elegant rustic charm, menus feature delicious local specialities such as capuns (chard-wrapped dumplings), pizokels (buckwheat pasta), plain in pigna (baked potato hash browns with bacon), maluns (slow-fried potatoes with herb butter) and Zuozer Krautsuppe (Zuoz cabbage soup). For worldclass international or classical cuisine, head to one of the many exclusive restaurants crowned with GaultMillau points or Michelin stars, which are particularly abundant in the valley. The restaurants of the top hotels also serve gourmet delights to the very highest standards.

Lunch on the terrace of the Berghaus Diavolezza and specialities from Engadin cuisine

St. Moritz Tourist Information

St. Moritz is the most glamorous winter sports resort in the world. Its name is protected

CH-7500 St. Moritz

as a trademark and stands worldwide for elegance and high class. It was here that winter

T +41 81 837 33 33

tourism was invented in 1864, and to this day, no other resort celebrates it in such style.

F +41 81 837 33 77

Guests from all over the world enjoy the chic, cosmopolitan ambiance and a unique com-

bination of top-quality restaurants in the resort and on the slopes, hotels that set new

www.engadin.stmoritz.ch /en /stmoritz

standards in luxury in every way, and a packed calendar of top-level international events – from World Cup ski races and the Gourmet Festival to the international horse races and the polo tournament on frozen Lake St. Moritz. The shopping is famously seductive, notably along glamorous Via Serlas, while close by, guests find all kinds of local specialities such as the delicious Engadin walnut cake. Of course, the quality of winter sports on offer in St. Moritz is also superb – from the local mountain, Corviglia/Piz Nair, with its 100 km (62 miles) of pistes, to the legendary Cresta Run and the world’s only natural-ice bob run that hosts World Cup races annually. No wonder St. Moritz has been entrusted with staging no fewer than five FIS Alpine World Ski Championships – most recently in February 2017 – as well as two Olympic Winter Games (in 1928 and 1948).

pontresina

Pontresina has also been awarded the “Families Welcome” seal of quality, which commends resorts that have tailored their offer specifically to the needs and wishes of children and their accompanying adults. For successful family holidays from start to finish. Located high up in the Alps, this is certainly a delightful experience with luxury that’s truly unmatched anywhere else; ice climbing up icicles that are metres long, snowkiting on the frozen Lago Bianco, as well as ice-skating, curling and hockey on natural ice rinks. Afterwards, why not treat yourself to some time at the Bellavita Pool and Spa, or dine at a GaultMillau-rated restaurant in the local starred hotels replete with their Swiss pine rooms, and your evening is complete.

SILVAPL ANA

Silvaplana Tourist Information

Silvaplana is a lively, trend-setting holiday resort set amongst the lakes of the Engadin. On its doorstep,

CH-7513 Silvaplana

the towering Corvatsch offers unlimited winter sports options. But this is only one reason why Silvaplana

T +41 81 838 60 00

has become a magnet for outdoor activity fans: it is also a paradise for snowkiting. Since this spectacular

F +41 81 838 60 09

sport was invented on frozen Lake Silvaplana, enthusiasts from all over the world have flocked here to

silvaplana @ estm.ch

take advantage of the Maloja wind that builds up almost every day around noon until it has the kites

www.engadin.stmoritz.ch /en /

dancing across the blue Engadin sky and skimming at speed across the plateau. The resort also has a

silvaplana

wonderfully tranquil side. Set amidst sublimely beautiful and unspoilt scenery with expansive frozen lakes, forests dusted with snow, and peaceful footpaths and scenic cross-country ski trails leading through the enchanting Engadin mountain landscape, Silvaplana also offers an abundance of treats to those who prefer natural highs to adrenalin-fuelled thrills.

SILS

Sils Tourist Information

Sils is said to abound in natural earth energy, or life force – and that you can even measure it. But why

CH-7514 Sils

bother, when you are bewitched anyway by the magic of the landscape at first sight? Writers such as

T +41 81 838 50 50

Nietzsche, artists like Beuys and musicians including David Bowie all drew inspiration from the wide-open

F +41 81 838 50 59

spaces here and the magical light. Idyllically located between two frozen lakes, the village also stands at

sils @ estm.ch

the entrance to the romantic Val Fex. The most beautiful way to explore this is in a horse-drawn sleigh or

www.engadin.stmoritz.ch /en /sils

carriage – but Sils also makes a perfect base for hikes and winter walks, too, through the expansive, sun-blessed landscape that stretches out at the foot of the local mountain, the Furtschellas. From here, it’s a short ride higher still up to the Corvatsch and the highest cable car station in the canton Graubünden (3,303 m/10,837 ft). And from here in turn, 120 kilometres (75 miles) of glorious piste lead back down to the valley.

Maloja Tourist Information

Here at the border with Italian-speaking Switzerland, locals and visitors cherish the relaxed atmosphere,

the spirit of great painters – and traditionally made sausages. As starting point of the Engadin Ski Mara-

thon, Maloja is also a paradise for cross-country skiers. The little village at the top of the eponymous pass

F +41 81 824 36 37

leading to the unspoilt Val Bregaglia is heaven for children – and their parents, too. At the tourist infor-

wonderfully family-friendly. But not only families feel at home in this glorious natural setting. The

maloja

fascinating play of light and shadow has long attracted artists. Giovanni Segantini chose the landscape around Maloja as the subject for many of his paintings and made the village his final home. Another artist who worked here was Giovanni Giacometti, the father of Alberto. Their spirit continues to inspire visitors to this day, through exhibitions, readings and concerts.

HOTEL SCH W EIZERH AUS Cheerful and friendly hotel in Maloja. Original and traditional, hip and happening: full of contrasts, but a place of harmony.

SAMEDAN

Samedan Tourist Information

The vibrant capital of the Upper Engadin is not only the region’s political centre, but also the focus for the

CH-7503 Samedan

traditional Engadin way of life. Samedan owes its importance to its location at the heart of the Upper En-

T +41 81 851 00 60

gadin: the town serves as a hub for the Rhaetian Railway, as well as being home to a small international

F +41 81 851 00 66

airport – a prized launch site for glider pilots. The Badrutt family, which went on to write hotel history

samedan@ estm.ch

in St. Moritz, originated here; among many historic features is the magnificent 16th-century Chesa Planta,

www.engadin.stmoritz.ch /en /

while new additions include the “vertical” mineral baths. A village that is as vibrant as it is picturesque

samedan

with its stately traditional Engadin houses may appear idyllic, but the charm is genuine: local people (and two museums) ensure that traditional Engadin culture is very much alive here. Furthermore, all parts of the Engadin are easily reached from here, including the summit of the local mountain, Muottas Muragl, with its stunning panorama and where the impressive first plus-energy hotel in the Alps, the Romantik Hotel Muottas Muragl, is located. The Survih ski area, the cross-country ski centre and the fast toboggan run also make for enticing winter sports experiences.

Here, the path really is the goal.

S-CHANF

S-chanf Tourist Information

Long ago, S-chanf was known as a stop for mule drivers; today, this pretty village is famous as the goal of

CH-7525 S-chanf

cross-country skiers competing in the Engadin Ski Marathon. For holidaymakers, S-chanf makes an ideal

T +41 81 854 22 55

base for exploring an exceptional variety of cross-country ski trails, such as the enchanting forest route

s-chanf@ estm.ch

to Zernez. Families, especially, enjoy a wonderfully peaceful experience of winter here. The intact historic

www.engadin.stmoritz.ch /en /

heart of the village radiates an irresistible, genuine charm; residents cherish their Romansh roots and

s-chanf

authentic local culture. The natural landscape on the village’s doorstep is unrivalled, protected in grand style as the Swiss National Park. But while S-chanf, located just outside the park, has grown in importance as a tourist destination in recent years, the village has maintained its sense of tradition in cheerful, relaxed style.

HOTEL V EDUTA

Our hotel lies in the heart of the Engadin, close to the Zuoz ski area and surrounded by peace and quiet. The Marathon cross-country ski trail leads you straight to the hotel. Welcome to Cinuos-chel! Sur il Chaunt 240, 7526 Cinuos-chel, T +41 81 854 12 53 info @ veduta.ch, www.veduta.ch

ZERNEZ

Zernez Tourist Information

The gateway to the Swiss National Park also makes an ideal base for exploring the whole of the delightful

CH-7530 Zernez

region where Switzerland, Italy and Austria come together. Undisputed number-one attraction, however, is

T +41 81 856 13 00

the Swiss National Park, at 170.3 square kilometres (66 square miles) the country’s largest nature reserve.

F +41 81 856 11 55

In winter, it lies under a thick blanket of snow and is closed to the public, but the visitor centre in Zernez

zernez @ estm.ch

with its fascinating multi-media exhibition remains open all season. The attractive Engadin village also

www.engadin.stmoritz.ch /en /

makes a peaceful base for exploring the region’s various large ski areas, while from the doorstep a network

zernez

of cross-country ski trails leads into the expansive valley of the Upper Engadin, down into the wild and romantic Lower Engadin, and around Zernez itself. Anyone seeking a very special experience of nature can book a guided snowshoe tour – for example up at the Ofen Pass. Livelier thrills, meanwhile, are on offer on the Munt Baselgia toboggan run, the artificial ice rink and the wonderful natural ice rink.

Terms of contract and conditions of travel Page 81

Terms of contract and conditions of travel This catalogue was compiled by the Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation on behalf of the service providers – hotels, airlines, etc. – listed therein.

07

01 Scope of these terms of contract and conditions of travel These terms of contract and conditions of travel govern the legal relationship between you and the service provider insofar as your contractual partner does not present terms and conditions at the time of booking. Unless expressly specified otherwise at the time of booking, your contract will be with the companies providing services, even if you place your booking through the Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation. In such cases, the Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation acts merely as an agent between you and the service provider; your contract is direct with the provider of the service booked.

02 Conclusion of contract and services provided Your contract with the service provider becomes legally binding when the booking office unconditionally confirms your booking. If the same booking office arranges other services and packages for you that are not booked from a publication of the Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation, these terms of contract and conditions of travel shall not apply. The services provided will be as specified in the booking confirmation and in the details provided of the service on offer. Unless stated otherwise in the product description, your activity will begin at the location specified in the contract.

03 Prices and terms of payment All prices are quoted in Swiss francs and are to be paid in Swiss francs. Unless otherwise agreed in your booking or in the booking confirmation, the price of your trip shall be payable in full upon booking. If the price is not paid in full by the date due, your contractual partner shall be entitled to withhold services, to withdraw from the contract and to demand the cancellation costs listed in paragraph 05. Note that if you book your trip through a different booking office such as a travel agent, this booking office may make additional charges for advice, reservations, etc.

04 Price and programme changes The service providers and the Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation are entitled to change the details of services and prices before a contract is signed. You will be informed of this at the time of booking. After the contract has been signed, prices can be increased up to three weeks prior to the beginning of your trip if the transport or accommodation costs, the charges for certain services or the exchange rate have increased.

Changes to the programme and scope of services may also arise owing to unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances. Should any of the essential features of your trip change considerably and if you cannot be offered an appropriate alternative, you have the right to cancel your booking. In these circumstances, price increases of more than 10% count as a considerable change. Unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances may necessitate a change of programme even after your trip has commenced. Your service provider will endeavour to provide appropriate alternatives in such cases. The Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation will not refund any services not delivered and accepts no liability for programme changes.

05 Changes or cancellations requested by you If you wish to change your booking or to cancel your trip, you must notify the booking office directly. Any travel documents you have already received must be returned to the booking office at the same time. A service charge of CHF 60.– per person, max. CHF 120.– per order, will be levied for cancellations and changes (affecting names of travellers, dates, accommodation or additional services, etc.). If you cancel your trip or change your booking (name, date, accommodation, additional services, etc.) less than 31 days prior to departure, you will also be charged, in addition to any processing fee, for the following costs as a percentage of the total cost of your trip: • 30 to 15 days before departure 30% of the package price • 14 to 8 days before departure 50% of the package price • 7 to 1 days before departure 80% of the package price • on the day of departure and in the event of no-show 100% of the package price The critical date is that on which the booking office receives notice of your intentions; if that is a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, the next working day shall apply.

06 Late arrival or early departure of your own accord You are responsible for arriving on time. Should you arrive late, you cannot claim a refund for any services you have missed owing to your late arrival. Should you depart early, your expenses will not be refunded.

Early departure or exclusion occasioned by the service provider The service provider is entitled to end the service/trip prematurely in the event of unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances that would render fulfilment of contract impossible, considerably more difficult or dangerous for those taking part. If no alternative is p ­ ossible, the service provider shall be exempted from its obligation to fulfil the contract. Your claim to a refund in such cases shall be limited to unjust enrichment. The service provider can exclude participants from the trip if their actions or omissions justify such a step. In such a case, the cost of the package shall still be due in full and there shall be no refund for services not received. Any claims for compensation are excluded.

08 Liability The Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation and the service providers accept no liability, to the extent provided for by law, for slight negligence on their own part or that of their agents. No liability is accepted for loss or damage to valuables, cameras/camcorders etc., fur coats or other expensive items of clothing, mobile phones, credit cards, cash and other valuable objects or for unlawful use of the same. For packages, liability for anything other than personal injury shall be limited to twice the cost of the package. The limitations to liability specified in paragraphs 04 to 07 also apply.

09 Travel insurance Participants are strongly advised to take out travel insurance to provide cover for cancellation or early departure, incl. accident or sickness.

10 Applicable law and jurisdiction The contract between you and the service providers or the Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation is governed exclusively by Swiss law. Exclusive place of jurisdiction for any disputes arising will be St. Moritz, Switzerland.
