Sandwich place of stay between 2 scenic train rides.

by rukja

Hello all.
I would like to have your opinion, where [Which town and ?Hostel] to stay for a night / day, when we visit The Engandine V. in May? We would be catching Bernina Exp coming from Lugano.We would be catching Glacier Exp after a days halt in Engandine Valley.
Whether it should be Pontresina or St. Moritz? [or Chur?]

We will be on low budget.

Thanks in advance.

There are youth hostels in both places. St. Moritz is more famous and has a lake. Check or or similar for low cost accomodation prices and availabilities.

Thanks Yumyum, I saw your page on St. Moritz and Bernina. Excellent.
I will probably be staying at YH in St. Moritz. Pontresina YH closed in May. But will try to visit Pontresina by leaving the Bernina exp at this beautiful place and leave luggage at luggage room, then visit Muottas Muragl and catch last direct train to SM at 07:56 pm.Museums at SM will be closed in May. So, may stroll around in SM for a while before going to bed. Catch Glacier exp the next day.

One more thing I would like to ask you all is:

How to best utilize evening in St. Moritz / Pontresina in May?

I'd suggest you get some sleep and allow the beauty of what you have seen that day, and the expectation of what you will see the next day, sink in. But I guess since it is now middle of June, you have already completed your trip and done whatever you did.

Thanks a lot.
We have arrived home after our vacation in Switzerland.
It was terrific.
Regarding the original question, we stayed at St. Moritz YH. It was really good. Food really good and service good, too. We stayed at St. Moritz. I understood the futility of my question. The journey thro' the quiet scenic route was exhiliarating. My planning was bit faulty. It requires a few days stay at a place for a better enjoyment.
We enjoyed both glacier express and Bernina exp. Bernina better out of the two.
William Tell OK. Lake Lucerne is wonderful, but one can satisfy with the Lucerne Vitznau part while doing the Mount Rigi.
Thanks to all of you for guidance.

Travel Tips for Saint Moritz

Valle di Campo

by german_eagle

A remote beautiful valley with marvellous lakes, nice hamlets. Go by car or bus (from Poschiavo) to Sfazu (some km south of the Bernina Pass, 1600 m). Hike via Rifugio Saoseo (hut, 1985 m) to Lake Saoseo (2028 m) or further up to the larger Lake da Val Viola (2159 m, incredible blue colours).

Go to the Bernina-pass

by globetrott

Bernina is a passroad in the south-east of St.Moritz
and the mountains behind this passroad will also be partly covered by snow in summertime, like my main photo here that Imade in August 2009. The road to Bernina-pass starts in Pontresina and takes you up gently to Passo del Bernina with a hight of 2330 meters above the sealevel. The track of the Rhaetische Bahn goes partly the same way, partly it crosses the passroad, causing long waitingtimes especially in summertime. But these places are also great to take photos of this very special train that was built in 1910 and became recently a UNESCO-worldheritage.

The very expensive but popular ski-resort

by ChristaV

"St Moritz"

the Upper Engadine Valley with its major place St. Moritz. You will find a lot of information about the surrounding areas, but only few about St. Moritz itself. The reason therefore is that St. Moritz is quite an overbuilt resort with the usual problems: crowded, noisy, expensive. That does not mean that you cannot spend great holidays there: the quality of service, accommodation, food ... is top. So, if you ever find a bargain for a four or five star hotel in St. Moritz, don't hesitate to book!
The beauty of the Engadine is not to beat. The combination of large lakes, embedded in a wide open valley with huge snow capped mountains is breathtaking. Lush, green glens, white glaciers and the blue sky offer a fascinating contrast. The Engadine takes benefit of its Romansch culture/language as well as of the neighbouring Italian speaking valleys. So don't miss side trips to the more remote Poschiavo and Breagaglia valleys!
