Celerina – the village in the heart of the Engadin

A leisurely holiday atmosphere
Celerina – the village in the heart of the Engadin

A leisurely holiday atmosphere, sporting energy and high-society buzz come closer together at this charming resort than anywhere else. Whatever activities and attractions guests in Celerina may wish for, they will find them on the doorstep.

Three great valleys meet at the heart of the Upper Engadin, and it is here, in the middle of the spacious valley floor, that Celerina basks in the sunshine. The village forms the centrepiece of our region, and offers guests who wish to experience the multi-faceted beauty of the Engadin three paths of exploration. In one direction, a string of villages leads from Samedan and Bever to the Swiss National Park, with its wild mountains shimmering in the distance; another route climbs to Pontresina, past the mighty Morteratsch Glacier and up to the Lago Bianco by the Bernina Pass; and the third way leads to St. Moritz and past the famous Engadin lakes to Maloja.

“And I find that’s the great advantage of Celerina. Being able to quickly join the colourful international bustle and quickly leave again, depending on your mood! Don’t you think so, too?”

from “Winterbrief aus Celerina” (“Winter letter from Celerina”) by Jakob Christian Heer, around 1910

Thanks to its exposed location, Celerina enjoys more hours of sunshine than any other town or village in the high valley of the Engadin – a region that is already known as one of Switzerland’s top suntraps, with an average of 320 sunny days a year. Its two railway stations – on the Albula line towards the northern edge of the village, and on the Bernina line towards the south – make Celerina not only easy and convenient to reach, but also offer countless opportunities for all kinds of excursions.

How about a day trip to the palm trees of the lush Valtellina? Or to the Swiss National Park for some wildlife-spotting? Perhaps you prefer just to stay in the village, to stroll through its historical core scattered with traditional Engadin houses and to experience living local traditions – such as the colourful descent of the cattle from the high pastures in autumn.

You will be amazed at the variety of worlds you can discover from Celerina!

Ideal base for hiking and mountain biking

During summer, the mountain railways and cableways provide easy access to the 580-kilometre network of hiking trails. Glorious panoramic paths, fascinating theme trails, pushchair-friendly walks, summit ascents: the biggest challenge is deciding which route to tackle. Mountain biking enthusiasts can choose between a range of classic Engadin rides with plenty of flow fun, from leisurely to demanding.

Families enjoy the trip up to the Marguns gondola summit station for the large playground with giant swing and trampoline, the choice of short, child-friendly walks and – for children from the age of 12 – the thrilling descent back down to Celerina on big, robust freewheel scooters. For a refreshing dip, head to the idyllic Lake Staz, halfway between Celerina and St. Moritz, with its grassy lakeshores perfect for sunbathing and its barbecue grill sites; the sun terrace of the restaurant is also a delightful spot to eat and relax.
