THEME

‘ENGADIN VALLEY’

 

Wednesday 1st September

Full day tour: 9h00 - 18h00 (lunch included)

We meet at the conference centre. From there we walk to the railway station to take the train to Zernez.

 

The National Park Centre, designed by the world-famous Grisons architect Valerio Olgiati, impresses with its clear lines and its unusual spatial concept. Inside, the nature of the park and its phenomena make a prominent appearance. The interactive, experience-oriented permanent exhibition invites you on an inspiring journey of discovery. Our exhibition guides give you special access to the national park and its nature. Let yourself be surprised!

 

In the afternoon, we will visit St. Moritz. The history of this holiday resort begins as a popular summer destination in the early 19th century, but St. Moritz owes its reputation as a sparkling winter paradise for the beautiful and rich to hotelier Johannes Badrutt. This resourceful Engadin made a legendary bet with English guests in 1864: he promised them that the St. Moritz winter would be every bit as beautiful as the summer. You should come and see for yourself! If his promise is not fulfilled, he will bear all travel expenses. But, of course, it didn't come to that. The enthusiastic English stayed all winter until Easter - and winter tourism was born.

 

After a break for coffee/tea, we take the train for a stunning journey back to Davos.
