Expressing Engadin in a few words is almost inconceivable, for the diversity and beauty of the region will impress everyone in its own special way – the blossom of spring and the clemency of summer, the kaleidoscope of colours in autumn and the magic of winter invite you to embark upon your very own voyage of discovery through Engadin’s four seasons.
The old patrician village of Zuoz with its historic centre is considered the most beautiful place in Engadin – by fans of culture and sportsmen alike.
Nestled in lush green meadows, the idyllic village is very much off the beaten track with little traffic. Zuoz is largely dominated by magnificent, palace-like patrician houses from the 16th and 17th centuries adorned with flowers and is also the best-kept village in Upper Engadin. Another extremely vibrant cultural relic is the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz, which was founded more than 100 years ago, where 200 boarders from all over the world study for their “Abitur” (equivalent to ‘A’ levels).
Zuoz is a holiday village, farming village and education centre all in one. The locals know visitors here and vice versa. In Zuoz people say:
«CORDIEL BAINVGNIEU!» or «WELCOME!»
