Engadin's Bathing Lakes
With water temperatures reaching a pleasing 20°C even in the winter, and plenty of sunshine to go around, you will want to jump straight in to the Engadin's bathing lakes - and there are a number to choose from. Located 200m below Lake Hahnen, Lej Nair is in the most perfect of locations. Only reachable on foot, you can enjoy the pleasant waters and peaceful surroundings here. Lej Marsch is also close by, boasting a sunny but sheltered position near to the Olympic ski jump. Due to its convenient location, this bathing lake has great parking facilities.

This lake also features great amenities for families, meaning you can really make a day of a trip here. With picnic benches and barbeques, parents can unwind while the children are occupied on the playground.
Marguns–Celerina Fairytale Trail
Just above Marguns sit three rock pinnacles, the Trais Fluors - something all children in the Engadin are familiar with. Along here, families can take part in a Fairytale Trail, and see that the rocks are actually fossilised magic flowers. The whole trail takes approximately 90 minutes, and guests can discover the 11 illustrated panels that reveal these flowers. Families are sure to love the trek along here, as children of all ages can experience the magic. The path is also suitable for push chairs.
For a more thrilling way to explore the Engadin, visitors can venture their way through the trails and pathways on scooters, all the way from the top station at 2,273m down to Celerina. Ride through alpine meadows filled with flowers down the mountainside, and through fragrant forests on these mountain bike-wheeled scooters.
