Summer Experiences in Zuoz

There are numerous things to experience, explore and try out. Below we present our best recommendations for Zuoz.

1. Inn cycle path

It is the counterpart to the Via Engiadina - the Inn Cycle Path. It runs over 520 kilometres from Maloja to Passau in Germany. The section in the Engadin, along the Inn, is a dream and the ride through Zuoz is a highlight, as the townscape is simply unrivalled.

2. Off to the alp

Away from big crowds you will find these three popular destinations: the mountain hut Es-cha SAC, the alp Arpiglia and the alp Es-cha Dadour.

3. Golf

The Engadin Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Switzerland. If you play golf in the Engadin, you will be playing in the cradle of Swiss golf and in a unique landscape. Not to mention the fact that the balls fly further here than anywhere else - give it a try. The 18-hole course in Zuoz-Madulain was opened in 2003 and offers exciting and varied holes for all levels. Children can make their first attempts at family golf and there are even times when your four-legged companion can join you on the course.

Unlimited golf in the Engadin!

4. Movement Parc

Parents can relax in the activity park at the Sur En restaurant while the little ones let off steam on the bouncy castle and try their hand at riding over various obstacles on the bike skills course to improve their riding technique and balance. Drops, berms and small jumps are learnt here from an early age.

5. Where professionals train...

… is also great fun for families.

The inline skating route from La Punt Chamues-ch to S-chanf is 8.6 kilometres long, largely flat, is away from motorised traffic and is surrounded by magnificent scenery.

The sports shops along the route offer equipment hire and courses in inline skating and roller skiing under expert guidance.
