WINDSURFING AND SAILING AT LATE SILVAPLANA

The mountains, the clean air and above all the excellent side-onshore wind make this location particularly ideal for windsurfing. The ideal weather conditions on Lake Silvaplana are sunny skies with flat pressure distribution or a south to south-westerly current. One can hire a sail boat and go sailing on the lake too which is quite thrilling by itself.  www.windsurfing-silvaplana.ch

DINE AT ONE OF THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN RESTAURANT- LA MARMITE

La Marmite is renowned for being one of the highest gastronomic restaurants in the world. It is part of the Mathis Food Affairs establishment, a grand, modern building that stands out against the white landscape and boasts six restaurants that provide a classy change from standard ski fare. La Marmite is the most sophisticated and elegant of the restaurants available, serving exceptionally high quality dishes ranging from venison to lobster to caviar, all while patrons enjoy truly spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Located on one of St. Moritz’s highest peaks, celebrity chef Reto Mathis offers a multi-venue food destination for chic skiers and highbrow foodies in the mood for truffle and caviar.

INDULGE IN SOME OF THE LOCAL SPECIALTIES

The delicious Nusstorte has its origins in the Fuatscha grassa, a round, buttery cake that most Engadin families used to enjoy on a Sunday. Engadin walnut cakes of all sizes are available from the confectioneries of Hanselmann and Hauser in St. Moritz.

You must try the traditional dish called the Pizzoccheri, often mixed with vegetables (especially savoy cabbage, spinach and Swiss chard), topped with grated cheese, and sprinkled with melted butter. Certainly no dish for anyone on a diet – but a wonderful treat for the taste buds!

The Barley Soup is a must try as well. Anyone who degrades this wholesome soup to a starter will have learned their lesson after just a few spoonfuls. For the barley, kidney beans, pieces of “Bündnerfleisch” cured meat and large quantity of vegetables that go into making it will curb their hunger for quite some time.

TAKE A REJUVENATING BATH AT OVARERA

St. Moritz originally rose to prominence because of its mineral springs, which have been attracting visitors for around 3500 years. Today the town’s bathing traditions are proudly continued at the OVAVERVA pool, spa & sports centre, St. Moritz. In 1907 Europe’s oldest mineral springs with timber channelling were discovered here in St. Moritz Bad. The original timber channel is on show next to the OVAVERVA in the Paracelsus Forum. Here the history of the St. Moritz healing springs is brought to life with listening points and touch-screens, and visitors can taste the true flavour of St. Moritz medicinal water at a drinking fountain. The family-friendly public pool in has an extensive offering of a swimming and diving pool with alpine panorama, the children and fun zone with water slides and also a spa with full massage, sauna and cosmetic treatments bearing international comparison.

TAKE A DIP IN ENGADIN’S MOUNTAIN LAKES:
