Thanks to the many hiking trails and mountain bike routes, the fairytale landscape in Madulain can be discovered in many ways. The mountain scenery also presents itself from its most beautiful side when walking over the green of the golf course Zuoz-Madulain or when riding the horses of the Engadin River Ranch. If you are on the Inn Cycle Path, you will pass through Madulain. Be sure to take the path through the village - it's worth it.
In Madulain you can hike on the Via Engiadina, the Via Valtellina, and the Bernina Trek. Three long-distance hikes that start in Madulain or lead past it. If you do the Bernina Trek, a night in the Chammana d'Es-cha awaits you. Also all others who are looking for something out of the ordinary can book a night in this SAC hut at 2594 m above sea level in front of the impressive Piz Kesch. With a front row seat, hikers can let their gaze wander over the beautiful Engadin panorama while they recover from the ascent with delicious home-style cooking. Tip: Be sure to try the Grisons barley soup!
The happiness of the earth lies on the backs of horses, they say. The Engadin River Ranch provides you with these feelings of happiness. It offers rides in western style for beginners as well as for advanced riders. In summer, autumn, and winter, short rides, day tours, or multi-day tours lead you high on horseback through the Engadin mountains. For those who prefer to travel by carriage - the ranch also offers this. The horseback riding and yoga retreats are also particularly popular. These are worth booking early.
At the Zuoz-Madulain Golf Course, things are playful - regardless of who is teeing off. Because golf has long since ceased to be an elitist sport. The 18-hole course of Zuoz-Madulain, which opened in 2003, offers a variety of holes for every level. In autumn, families can also enjoy fun and action here, and dogs are also allowed, subject to a few rules. Special times are available for family golf fun and golfing with dogs.
The Engadin has always known how to score in terms of golf because the sport has a long tradition here. This is based on the opening of the oldest golf course in Switzerland in 1893 in Samedan. Its neighbor in Zuoz-Madulain, however, is in no way inferior. In the Engadin you also have the chance to play your longest ball ever. Thanks to the thin air, nowhere do balls fly as far as they do here. Try it out for yourself!

On this nature trail small and big discoverers get their money's worth. There are 34 different trees, shrubs, and many plant species to explore, each marked with wooden posts and small green name tags. The animal world of the Engadin can also be discovered on the nature trail. For this purpose, artists have carved 11 large wooden figures from native tree trunks and placed them along the nature trail. Of these, 9 represent native wild animal species.
The nature trail runs for 2.3 kilometers along forest paths, trails, and meadow sections. It is mostly flat, but not suitable for strollers. On the way you will find a picnic area with a fire pit and a fountain in a charming forest clearing.
The nature trail is open in spring, summer, and autumn.
In 2014 contemporary art moved into Madulain with the opening of the art gallery Stalla Madulain. It stands in the middle of the village, the old barn from 1488, which was discovered by two cousins Gian Tumasch Appenzeller and Chasper Schmidlin. Chasper, who is an architect, has restored it somewhat, but keeping the original structure. Art by local artists or those who were inspired in the rooms or during a stay in the Engadin is displayed and sold.
The Stalla includes the Stalletta - a small stable 50 steps away from the Stalla Madulain. It functions as an additional exhibition space.
