A Dip in Lake Staz

The scent of pine needles and sun-warmed grass always reminds me of my best summers in the Engadin. The chorus of laughter that would echo through the valley as we, a gaggle of friends, raced towards the shores of Lej Staz. 

Unlike the glacial chill of the higher lakes, Staz was sun-kissed and embraced us with a gentle warmth, its surface shimmering like a giant jewel amongst the pines.


Those were days of carefree joy. Splashing, diving, and floating on those calm crystalline waves in the morning. Combined with lazy afternoons devouring picnics, baskets overflowing with local cheeses and fresh bread. Evenings were a kaleidoscope of flickering firelight, smoky sausages sizzling on the grill, and stories exchanged under a canopy of stars.


Here at the Grand Hotel Kronenhof, I'm thrilled to share this cherished tradition with our guests. Let's embark on a hike together, following hidden trails that weave through fragrant forests until we reach the idyllic shores of Lej Staz. This haven isn’t just a playground; it’s a place of healing. The cool water soothes sunbaked skin, invigorates tired limbs, and will leave you feeling utterly refreshed. Imagine yourself sinking into the warm embrace of the lake, the majestic peaks of the Engadin reflecting on its surface. Breathe in the pure mountain air, letting the worries of everyday life melt away. 


As the sun dips below the horizon, casting long shadows across the still water, we'll share stories and laughter. It's a chance to let the healing waters work their magic and reconnect with the simple joys of life, just like I did all those summers ago.
