Water has characterised the Engadin since time immemorial. Wild mountain streams furrow their way through a landscape of unspoilt natural beauty, while mountain lakes with drinking-quality water reflect the azure-blue sky. Mighty glaciers drape themselves languorously around the highest peaks in the eastern Alps. And bubbling out of the ground are natural springs whose healing qualities were known and enjoyed as long ago as in Roman times.
The Upper Engadin owes much of its unique appeal to the harmonious interplay between its imposing Alpine scenery, its idyllic lakes and its wild mountain streams.
It is so beautiful that it is almost too good to be true: the lake plateau between Maloja and St. Moritz characterises the landscape of the Engadin’s watery realm.
Number one among the rivers and streams of the Upper Engadin is and always will be the Inn.
