Autumn came with wind and gold

The East of North America is known for an incredibly photogenic natural spectacle - the Indian Summer. This refers to the fall coloring of the deciduous forests, which spreads like a red-golden fire. But you do not have to travel that far. Vacationers can also experience an autumnal rush of colors in Pontresina. For many locals, the most beautiful season in the Engadin begins in mid-September and lasts until the first snowfall. And to make sure there are no autumn blues, here are some tips for a trip into the golden fall in Pontresina.

where the golden carpet is layed out

Camping Morteratsch open all year

The Engadine can be enjoyed throughout the year. Camping Morteratsch will remain open in November and May. This includes the camping store at the reception, which offers guests everything they need for living in a caravan or tent. In addition to food and hygiene products, camping articles are also available, which make life cozy and warm on colder days. The camping team is looking forward to welcoming their guests all year round in Pontresina. 

Season opening Diavolezza

The ski season 2019/20 ended abruptly in Switzerland Corona. The longing for snow and fun on the slopes is therefore all the stronger among winter sports fans. The Diavolzza in the Upper Engadine is the only non-glacier ski area that allows the 2020/21 winter season to open as early as October. From 17 October - 27 November 2020, the ski slopes will be open to the public on Wednesday, all Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy the perfectly groomed autumn slopes on the Diavolezza. 

New visitor center at the Diavolezza valley station

In cooperation with the Graubündner Kantonalbank (150 year anniversary), Diavolezza Lagalb AG has realized the worldwide unique "VR Glacier Experience". What did the Morteratsch Glacier look like in 1875? What will happen to the largest glacier area in Graubünden by the new year 2100? The latest highlight in the Bernina Glaciers experience area will be devoted to such questions from this autumn. The visitor center is open daily and free of charge to the public (8.30 to 16.00 hrs).  

Bellavita outside pool and spa

The Bellavita adventure bath presents itself also in November as a varied water temple of the alpine kind. Children experience their exuberant adventures on the 75-meter slide, in the paddling pool or on the diving board. Adults relax with a few lanes in the pool, in the spacious outdoor pools with an impressive view of the mountains or in the spa area. 

Discover the Bernina Line with the Rhaetian Railway

The famous panoramic line connects St. Moritz, Valposchiavo and Tirano and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage RhB. The Bernina line leads high up to the glacier glitter of the mountains, past picturesque lakes and deep down into the palm paradise of Italy. Perfect for a relaxed day trip.


Waterfall path Cascada da Bernina

In Morteratsch, the mountain stream "Ova da Bernina" gradually plunges towards the bottom of the valley. The new waterfall path is ideal for walks and leads along several viewing platforms. In addition to the rushing spectacle, visitors can expect a breathtaking view of the Bernina massif and its glacier world. The entrance is located in Morteratsch between the railroad station and the parking lot and remains easily accessible until snowfall.
