The primordial resort
In Zuoz, all is well with the world –in fact, this village is regarded as the most beautiful in all of the Upper Engadin. And the modern times are also adding vibrant dabs of colour.
Even in this tradition-conscious village with its 1,200 inhabitants, time has not stood still; thanks to the beautifully appointed 18-hole golf course, an attractive inline skating route (including an inline school and equipment hire), and an abundance of hiking and biking possibilities, this picturesque resort is perfectly equipped to also cater to the needs of tourists in the future. Vibrant, modern dabs of colour are provided by the Hotel Castell, with its sensuous hamam and original Dorta restaurant.
Culture vultures will be enchanted by the historic village centre and the proud patrician buildings, such as the Chesa Planta, which are particularly well preserved. Lovers of seductive aromas are in heaven at the highest-lying coffee-roasting plant in Europe – and can also learn more about the history of coffee at the Caferama Badilatti. Families feel at home simply because here children find the most important thing of all in unlimited abundance – an intact nature that is invariably filled with surprises.
