Bathing lakes


In addition to the large, well-known lakes such as the Lake Silvaplana, the Upper Engadine lake landscape also offers great, small mountain lakes for swimming and bathing. Lej Marsch, Lej Nair and Lej Zuppo are hidden in a small forest above Surlej on the way to St. Moritz. They are easily accessible - whether on foot during a gentle walk, by bike or e-bike. Here you can find our route suggestion to the three bathing lakes.

Lej Marsch 

Lej Marsch is probably the most famous of the three lakes. On site there are fireplaces, picnic areas, sunbathing areas and restrooms. The small sandy beach even brings a beach feeling to the mountain lake. And a pier lets daredevils jump into the cool water.   

Lej Nair 

If you are looking for some peace and quiet, Lej Nair is the right place for you. The mystical Black Lake is only a ten-minute walk above Lej Marsch and is easily accessible from Surlej on foot or by bike. At the lake there is a fireplace with firewood.

Lej Zuppo 

"Lej Zuppo" is Romansh for "hidden lake" and this name comes from its location in the middle of the forest. However, some say that the small lake is named so because it often dries up in the summer. Swimming is therefore very rarely possible. But the fireplace and the lawn invites you to relax.

Experience Silvaplana

Silvaplana is located in the heart of the Upper Engadine lake landscape, surrounded by impressive three-thousand-meter peaks such as the local mountain Corvatsch with the highest panorama restaurant at 3303 m above sea level.

Family excursions

In Silvaplana and its surroundings you will find many children's playgrounds and barbecue areas for a leisurely family excursion. The pirate ship at the restaurant and café PappaLoù is a real highlight for the little visitors: Here they can discover the adventures of Captain Lou and his crew. There is also a painting and craft corner and a great children's program.
