Hiking Wonderland: Discover Summer in St Moritz

St Moritz will charm you with its hiking, picnicking options, and natural beauty.

Description

St Moritz has a lot more going for it than its renowned ski resort. It has hosted the Winter Olympics twice and is part of the Rhaetian Railway of Albula/Bernina UNESCO World Heritage Site. Each year, St Moritz spoils visitors with exquisite sunny days of hiking and bike riding and gives tourists the chance to experiment with sailing, rowing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, tennis, mini-golf, or horse riding.

If you’re looking for a hike with a bit of everything, the Muottas Muragl Panorama Trail may be the one for you. Start off with a trip up the mountain in the funicular, soak in views the Engadine plateau, and wander along trails through pine forests against the backdrop of the Bernina Range.

If you’re looking for an easy 3- to 4-hour hike with views and a gourmet meal, take the Corvatsch gondola to the Murtèl middle station. Follow the route from there and you’ll end up back at the Restaurant Hahnensee, idyllically located beside the Lej dals Chöds peat lake. There are also spots to stop and freshen up your feet in cool lakes or stop at a BBQ site for a well-deserved picnic.
