Long live the chestnut

Festa da Maruns

The Festa da Maruns offers entertainment and culinary delights for young and old. And of course chestnuts, lots of chestnuts! They are available at an all-you-can-eat-buffet. Even though the vitamin-rich chestnut is clearly the centre of attention, there is much more on offer at this traditional chestnut festival in autumn!

Castagnata - Festa
da Maruns

Small but nice

"Marroni" have long since found a firm place in the Engadine. Which is not surprising, because on the one hand the vitamin-rich chestnuts are simply delicious and on the other hand they grow in abundance in nearby Bergell. 

Traditionally, the Castagnata is always held in Pontresina in autumn - in German "Marronischmaus" and "Festa da maruns" in Romansh. During the cosy get-together at Alp Nouva Morteratsch, music, singing and many specialities are offered. And as already mentioned, an all-you-can-eat-chestnut-buffet.

The next Castagnata will take place on 2.10.2020
