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!
Festa da Maruns
Castagnata - Festa
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
