Sports and Recreation in the natural paradise Sils – Engadin – St. Moritz – Switzerland
Strike ‘boredom’ out of your vocabulary!
I am taking a horse drawn sleigh through the snow. I can see my breath in the cold of the winter and I can feel my heartbeat, wrapped comfortably in a thick blanket. I look at the sun-flooded landscape and the magic of the village of power – Sils – lays itself onto me – like a warm winter coat.
This is how it can feel, when you use your time here to get to know the magnificent area in and around Sils.
A diverse range of different sportive activities are on offer in and around Sils. Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing or ice skating are only a few of the options available in the Engadin region. Those who prefer a lighter form of exercise can go for enjoyable winter walks. Organised sleigh trips are also on offer.
After a busy day filled with activities out in the wintry cold you will want to warm yourself up and enjoy a nice meal. Luckily the hotel Edelweiss across the road from your property offers all its excellent 4-star-hotel services to property owners from the “Edelweiss Conversion” also. (These services are charged separately) This means that you can enjoy a rich breakfast at the hotel or book an exclusive dinner in Hotel Edelweiss’ restaurant.
Various SPA treatments are available to you as well as the sauna- and wellness area. Proven to be good for health a visit to the sauna is also said to improve your mental state, along with enabling you to enjoy relaxation for your body and soul. Additionally a full fitness suite is available at the hotel gym.
Hiking is a major activity in the summer in Graubünden. You can set the pace and walk comfortably from pasture to pasture, or explore the mountain tops in the local area. With hiking the way is more important than the goal and especially in and around Sils the views do reward you for the time spent. Swimming is possible in both of Sils’ lakes and so is sailing. There is also a golf course, if you would like to pick up golfing. Having these activities available to you right at your front door is a rare luxury and another reason to buy in Sils.
Well-known artists, authors, and musicians like Nietzsche, Hesse, or Bowie fell in love with Sils when they came to visit, which is why the village has a history for arts and culture. Many artists come to visit and describe Sils as an inspirational and powerful place.
“This is a good place to live”, were the words of Friedrich Nietzsche and this statement still applies today. Concerts, workshops, book presentations, and public art displays take place in Sils on a regular basis. Museums and galleries are open for business all year and often host interesting events and exhibitions. This only confirms that Sils has earned its “village of culture” and “village of power” status.
