Meal with a view

Imagine yourself here: Pizzoccheri steaming on your plate, and from your seat on the sun-drenched terrace you cast your eyes over the Alps. Go for a hike and have a rest in a traditional mountain hut which combines local cuisine with heart-felt, warm hospitality.

One hut is nice but simply not enough? No problem! The culinary trails lead you from one course of the meal to the next, from one mountain restaurant to another. Panoramic views included.

Culinary short break in Bregaglia

You can enjoy the culinary side of Graubünden year-round but autumn is a special feast! In this time of the year, you can for example experience the festivities around the chestnut in Val Bregaglia.

The valley, located close to Italy, is pampered by a mild climate. And that's where the largest chestnut forest in Europe is located. In autumn it is chestnut harvest time and you can enjoy delicious dishes made of fresh chestnut like Vermicelli or chestnut gnocchi. When you are in the valley, you definitely have to visit the mountain village Soglio.

It is not surprising that it has been voted Switzerland's most beautiful village in 2015 and the famous painter Giovanni Segantini named Soglio „the gate to paradise". Perched high up on one side of the valley, it offers an amazing view over the mountains. Or meander through the winding streets of the village and you will feel like you have stepped back in time.
