Golden autumn in the Engadine

OllO World, Goldener Herbst im Engadin

Larches show the golden splendor

Golden autumn in the Engadine. Autumn is probably the most beautiful season in the Engadine. When the sun shines into the discolored trees, my breath almost stops. Every photo almost looks like a painting. No wonder many painters and writers have settled in the Engadine. To name just a few of them: Giovanni Segantini, Ferdinand Hodler, Hermann Hesse, Nietzsche or Proust. The area inspires in all seasons, but especially in autumn, I find. 

Feeding birds at Lake Staz

An experience is feeding the birds. In Pontresina and also at Lake Stazer, the birds are trusting and even eat from your hand. If you have bird food with you, you can take beautiful photos with a little patience. I did not miss the spectacle. 

Hike from Pontresina to St. Moritz

However, before setting off, I allowed myself a stop at the Kochendörfer pastry shop. There you can get the best Bündner nut cake. This is a great take home gift. Since I am unfortunately, due to time constraints, only allowed a picnic, I also took delicious sandwiches.

Val Roseg or to the Stazersee to St. Moritz

As starting point I have chosen Pontresina. On the way to the confectionery Kochendörfer I pass the horse-drawn carriages to Val Roseg. They are also on the road in summer and autumn. However, I save this excursion for deep winter. So I make my way to Lake Staz with Bündner nut cake and sandwiches in my backpack. Since autumn vacations are, I am not alone on the way. Doesn’t matter. It gives a good feeling to have made the right decision. Indeed, I am rewarded with beautiful pictures. The larch trees with deep yellow foliage in rank and file. Wonderful. 

Around the Lake Staz there are many places to sit. There is also a food truck. Hikers, joggers and cyclists are now out and about enjoying the sun and the beautiful landscape. 

The OllO World team agrees that it was a successful excursion. Soon, however, the area beckons with winter hiking trails and sports in the snow. 

Maybe you will like this trip to Val Roseg too.
