Summer in Celerina

Magical mornings and refreshing swims at Lake Staz

Celerina - the sunny room of the Engadine - holds many treasures. Here are our 10 experience tips for an unforgettable summer in Celerina!

1. Taste the locally produced mountain cheese on the Alp Laret

High above Celerina, surrounded by flowery meadows and a magnificent mountain panorama, lies Alp Laret.

In the Alpbeizli Laret these delicacies, made with heart and soul, are served to guests. Besides the ricotta, the homemade Kaiserschmarren is an insider tip!
