Silvaplana is located in the heart of the Upper Engadin lake landscape, surrounded by impressive three-thousand-meter peaks such as Piz Julier, Piz Surlej, and the local mountain Corvatsch. Life is celebrated in Silvaplana - it is considered the lively, young village in the Engadin and offers a variety of sporting opportunities with the three districts of Silvaplana, Champfèr, and Surlej. Surrounded by a dreamlike pristine nature and embedded in the wide Upper Engadin lake landscape, this paradise on the water has become one of the international destinations for water sports enthusiasts in summer and freestylers in winter - Silvaplana is the scene of their lifestyle.
Midday in summer in Silvaplana. The Maloja wind is coming up. This is their moment - kiters and windsurfers grab their boards and head out onto the turquoise blue water. Soon the lake is a colorful scene, visible from afar. Just by looking at it, you get a feeling of freedom and know that this is the place for carefree moments.
In winter, the lake turns into a sea of ice and snow. If you are not aware of it, you will not be able to imagine the spectacle just described in summer. In winter, however, Silvaplana is no less popular - freestylers in particular are drawn to the resort. Amateur and top athletes appreciate the snow park on the freestyle mountain Corvatsch.
The village received a major upgrade with the redesigned village center. In 2018, the Plazza dal Güglia was opened. Since then, festivals, theater performances, markets, and concerts have been held here. It is a meeting place as you would imagine - beautifully designed, inviting, largely traffic-free. It is a place where locals and guests enjoy spending time, and it gives the village that certain something. But it's the kind of thing you have to see and experience for yourself - so we invite you to stop by!
Everything except boring – Silvaplana is a lively and trendy holiday resort surrounded by breathtaking nature. And an absolute paradise for windsurfers and kiters.
