On the border with Italian-speaking Switzerland, people appreciate the easygoing atmosphere, the spirit of famous painters, and the nature and culture of a pass landscape. Maloja forms the political, geographical, and linguistic border between the Engadin and the Bergell. Thus, in Maloja, Italian and Bregagliot are spoken.
In one direction you look at Lake Sils, while in the other direction, from 1815 meters, you go steeply downhill into the picturesque Val Bregaglia. The perfect place, then, for those seeking both - the expanse of the Engadin on one side, and the majestic granite rocks of the Bergell on the other. On the footpath from Maloja to Cavril you can still find Roman vestiges. Nevertheless, one does not feel transported to another time here. Perhaps it is more accurate to say that one feels transported into another world. Those who spend their holidays in Maloja take a step outside the front door and end up in the midst of untouched nature, which has fascinated famous artists for many years. Today the mountain lakes Bitabergh and Cavloc attract water lovers in summer, while in winter, cross-country skiers and powder skiers find their personal winter fairy tale here.
Feast, stroll, stay, be - Maloja is a great place to spend time after returning from a hike or a day of skiing. Relax in one of the hotels, indulge in culinary delights, see the sights, and pay a visit to the small stores - even if it's just to buy an ice cream or a chestnut cake.
