biosfera val müstair – arrive, take a deep breath, feel at home…
val müstair is one of switzerland’s most beautiful mountain valleys. enjoy unique natural landscapes and harmonic villages that have preserved their character over decades. let yourself be enchanted by places that promise highest holiday quality.
the UNESCO biosfera engiadina val müstair is located in the southeastern part of graubünden and covers an area of more than 18 kilometers from the ofenpass to the vinschgau. the journey over the ofenpass is an unforgettable experience! starting in zernez, the road takes you through the swiss national park with an amazing view over val müstair and the südtiroler ortlergruppe.
val müstair has its own climate, as the weather is noticeably mild due to its south-oriented location and wind and rain are stopped by the mountain ranges. our guests will love the above-average number of sunny days.
sta. maria, 1375 m a.s.l., is the main village of the valley. it serves as the starting point of the umbrailpass-road that during summer time takes visitors to veltlin and the summer skiing area stilfserjoch.
val müstair attracts visitors with its range of activities… you also find the last big hand-weaving mill (tessanda) of switzerland here, where natural fibres are used to manufacture cloth with traditional patterns.
