If you go on a family vacation in St. Moritz – Engadin, you should be enthusiastic about hiking. Because there is a wide range of well-maintained hiking trails, which also have some adventures in store for children. In addition, many of the trails are suitable for strollers, so that even the youngest can already come up the mountain. If you put in a little imagination, even 3 to 4 hour hiking trails will not be boring. Especially when you consider the goal. Because at altitude meters of 3,000 to 4,000 meters, it is common that snowmen can be built on the peaks even in the middle of summer. Once at the top, you will also be rewarded with breathtaking views into the far distance. But even on the way, many hill stations and playgrounds ensure that the motivation is not lost. An alternative to the hard hike up the mountains, is to take the funicular up to Muottas Muragl. From there you can hike to the Segantini hut, or the easier way to the Languard mountain station. This view of the valley and the lakes is unforgettable and is sure to make you a repeat offender.
