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.
f you are looking for a variety of summer days, make a stop in Samedan, of course. Engadine hotspots such as our local mountain, the 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 in the village itself there is all sorts of variety: from the wellness oasis of the Mineralbad & Spa, a real architectural jewel, to the Upper Engadin cultural center in the historic Chesa Planta, to the numerous entry points into the extensive bike trail and hiking trail network.
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.
