St. Moritz Upper-Engadin Switzerland


I thought about postponing the vacation we planned in St. Moritz as it coincided with the Alpine World Ski Championships. We knew it would not be the usual crowd and restaurants reservations would be difficult to get. We went along and spent most of the time on the outskirts of St. Moritz. A horse-drawn carriage ride was perfect – which allowed us to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Sils in Engadin. This was one of the filming locations of the film, Clouds of Sils Maria. Here you will find Nietzche house museum. Friedrich Nietzche was a German philosopher who lived during the summers 1881-1883 in Sils Maria. A few cappuccinos in Hotel Pensiun Crasta to warm us up before making the journey back. We went for lunch in Hotel Bellavista which is in the middle of the Engadin, Silvaplana-Surlej. The mountain views are magnificent. If you are vegan or vegetarian, skip this bit. I wasn’t so keen on the look of the sausage either – but I was told it was delicious. Here you can eat traditional Swiss food at its best. This restaurant specializes in game meat and serves great wine. Housemade Engadinerwurst, sausage Kalbsbratwurst, veal sausage with rösti. There is a cozy atmosphere and the decor is lovely. Mackage coat no longer available – similar here and here
