Winter Bucket List

10 Tips for the perfect Samedner winter

Samedan
Winter Bucket List

We don't want to go into a long preface about all the thousands of possibilities to enjoy the Samedner winter. After all, it is important to make the most of every minute of your Engadin winter days. According to the motto "class instead of mass" we serve you our 10 winter highlights:

1. Mineral bath & Spa

A bathing jewel in the Engadin - bathing between heaven and earth, church and mountains. Let yourself be carried away into another world by the uniquely mystical atmosphere. Situated in the middle of the historic village center and attached to the listed church, Switzerland's first vertical mineral bath impresses with its unique architecture by Miller & Maranta alone. Due to the vertical arrangement of the various baths on three floors, the bathing experience truly "grows" beyond itself - until you can finally admire the alpine panorama high above from the outdoor pool directly under the church tower. Bathing is done in mineral water from our own spring, which is taken directly from under the building at a depth of 35 meters.

2. Cross-Country Skills Park

In the beautiful area of the golf lakes lies the Cross-Country Cross Skills Park for young and old. Here children, teenagers and adults can playfully develop their physical and technical skills while completing 16 stations. The various exercises and elements such as pedal organ, wave troughs or pole forest are explained on boards along the course. The Cross-Country Skills Park is groomed daily from mid-December to March.

3. Samedner «CulTour» in three stations

Station 1: The historic watchtower La Tuor is already 800 years old and yet has remained enviably young: True to its motto "Future has origins", it is a cultural antenna for the then, the now and the future. In its museum, you can learn more about cultural creativity in the Engadin, from art, music, architecture, crafts to design.

Station 2: Chesa Planta is more than "just" the former ancestral home of the von Planta and von Salis families. What was once the largest private house in the Engadin is now the Upper Engadin cultural center and a haven of Rhaeto-Romanic culture. The museum-like cultural archive is home to an important library with Engadin collections and bequests, as well as the Museum of Home Culture. Our tip: Don't forget to pay a visit to the historic garden with its pretty pavilion from 1855.

Station 3: For over thirty years, art has been exhibited in the rooms of the old village bakery from the 17th century. Performance artists also find a distinctive stage in the "Kunstraum Riss".

5. Icy pleasures

At Promulins Arena, not only skaters glide across the ice, but also curling stones and ice sticks - although the latter rarely attempt pirouettes, they are still a lot of fun. Beginners and amateurs can not only rent the equipment, but also take lessons and thus be initiated into the fascination of these ice sports. In addition to an artificial ice rink, you can also venture out on a limb on a natural ice field.

8. Winter Trailrunning : Samedan Sunny Slope

With the Engadin Ultra Trail in July and the trail run project "La Traverseda", Samedan is at the centre of the trail run world in summer. But Samedan is not only a mecca for trail runners in summer. The numerous winter hiking trails also invite you to run in winter. The tour on Samedan's sunny slope deserves special mention.

9. Excursion with the steam locomotive

It hisses, steams and chugs: with the power of fire and water, the RhB steam locomotive pulls the red nostalgic cars through the railroad country of Graubünden. What began in 1889 with the opening of the train line from Landquart to Klosters is today a 384-kilometer-long rail network in the middle of the Swiss high mountains. Immerse yourself in the historic world of the steam age and experience a piece of railroad history up close in the Graubünden mountains - naturally in true style with sound and smoke.

10. Snowshoe tour under a full moon

The full moon has a magic of its own when it shrouds mountain peaks and snowy landscapes in its pale light. On the guided snowshoe tour on Muottas Muragl you will dive into the nocturnal mysticism of the mountains and let our bright earth satellite - and of course an experienced guide - show you the way. The evening ends with a glass of wine and Grisons specialties before the "red Bähnli" takes you back to the valley.
