The sky over the Castell is full of happy moments – you just have to pick them. It starts with the simple things: with the peace of this retreat on the other mountain; time to enjoy by yourself or share with family and friends; the unique environment, nature, the mountains, the fresh air; enjoyable moments at the table with a fine glass of wine; relaxation at our hamam; the inspiring atmosphere, the art at the Castell, the exciting encounters.
This is our "good times" list for the Castell.
Carpe Diem! We wish you a pleasant stay.
… TO DO BEFORE YOU LEAVE
CAPPUCCINO AND NEWSPAPER
Start your day slowly at the Castell Lounge with coffee, cappuccino, and your favourite read.
ENJOY THE SUN
Enjoy the sun and the breath-taking views from the Kawamata terrace. Think deck chairs, a light lunch or aperitifs at sunset.
DISCOVER CONTEMPORARY ART
The Castell is full of it. Explore and be inspired. Participate in a guided tour. Visit the Castell Art Shop.
Helmut Leitner’s Castell cuisine is fresh, authentic and simply wonderful. Also, be sure to take a look at the wine list.
LOOK TO THE SKY
The open tower by James Turrell lets you look at a section of the sky above and invites you to dream.
DANCE IN THE MOONLIGHT
Next to the reflecting pool by Tadashi Kawamata, there is a small sauna, which can be booked exclusively.
CLIMB A MOUNTAIN
… and let yourself be inspired by the panoramic view. Many summits are easily accessible by cable car. Free from the second night.
In the Swiss National Park, there is so much to discover. Belling deer, whistling marmots or just the fascination of an intact natural landscape.
VISIT AN ART GALLERY
The Upper Engadine is a secret art, Mecca. The numerous galleries and museums are hosting amazing world-class exhibitions.
EAT A PIECE OF ENGADINE CAKE
Refined by local confectioners, combined with cream-caramel, topped off with honey and walnuts, it is a symbol of our tradition.
TAKE A RIDE ABOARD THE BERNINA EXPRESS
The exciting ride takes you from the Bernina glaciers down to the palms in the Italian Tirano. Since 2008, the Bernina line is a UNESCO World Heritage.
WRITE A POSTCARD
Yes exactly. No text message, no WhatsApp message and no facebook post. Traditionally handwritten - on an art postcard from the Castell Art Shop, for example.
Of course, this list is far from exhaustive. There is so much to do and to discover here! So if you want to send us an additional tip, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
