Describe Samedan in one word? Difficult. Too many characteristics come to mind even during a quick brainstorming session: sunny, located at the highest airfield in Europe, historical, sporty ... and of course: "centrel"! This Romansh word alone encompasses numerous advantages of Samedan: because thanks to its central location, Samedan is the hub of public transport par excellence and thus the optimal starting point for activities throughout the valley.
Samedan summer delightsIf you're looking for varied summer days, you'll stop off in Samedan, that's for sure. Engadin hotspots like our local mountain Muottas Muragl with its legendary view over the wide valley and its lakes or the oldest golf course in Switzerland are only a stone's throw away. And the village itself attracts all sorts of variety: from the wellness oasis of the Mineralbad & Spa, a real architectural gem, to the Upper Engadin Cultural Center in the historic Chesa Planta, to the numerous entry points to the extensive network of bike trails and hiking paths.
The smart capital of the Upper Engadin is not just the political centre, but also the guardian of Engadin lifestyle.
Samedan owes its importance to its central location in the heart of the Engadin: it serves as a hub for the Rhaetian Railway and is the ideal departure point for sporting activities and excursions into the beautiful Upper Engadin landscape.
