There is so much to experience, discover, try - below we present our top 9 summer experiences in Zuoz.
The nature trail through the San Batrumieu floodplain on the left side of the Inn River from Zuoz in the direction of Madulain documents the renaturalization of the river. Five panels inform about the project "Aue San Batrumieu." This is based on the separation of the floodplain from the main river in the course of the great Inn correction at the beginning of the 20th century. Since the river basin was no longer flooded, numerous water-dependent animal and plant species were threatened with extinction.
In 1992, San Batrumieu was included in the "Federal Inventory of Floodplains of National Importance." In the course of the revitalization project, the floodplain was restored to its original formative power of the Inn River, so that the river could once again fulfill its ecological functions. Today, thanks to the coexistence of very dry and wet areas, a wide variety of flora & fauna once again find ideal living conditions. For example, one of Switzerland's largest populations of the rare laurel willow, the blue-green willow, and orchids such as the spotted orchid thrive here.
It is the counterpart to the Via Engiadina - the Inn Cycle Path. It leads over 520 kilometers 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 because the townscape is simply incomparable.
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.
The Engadin Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Switzerland. If you play golf in the Engadin, you will be doing so in the cradle of Swiss golf and in a unique landscape. Not to mention that the balls fly further here than anywhere else - give it a try!
The 18-hole course of Zuoz-Madulain was opened in 2003 and offers exciting and varied holes for every level. At Family Golf, children make their first attempts at golf ,and there are even times when your four-legged companion is also allowed on the course.
At this exercise park near the Sur En restaurant, parents can relax while the little ones let off steam on the bouncy castle and make their first attempts at riding over various obstacles on the bike skill course, thus improving their riding technique and balance. Drops, bends, and small jumps can be practiced here from an early age.
… families also have fun.

Both options impress with phenomenal scenery and offer fun for young and old. You pass smaller rapids, swim, and have fun on water slides. Back at the rafting base in Zuoz, you can enjoy a cold drink, a warm shower, or look at the photos of the tour.
