Scuol, Livigno and Sent

Monday September 24th I left Küblis and arrived close to half past eleven in Scuol in Hotel Altana, which has recently changed its name into Typically Swiss Hotel Altana. There the atmosphere was as cosy and charming as always, with the marvellous flowers and the good food. Continue reading

Through the fog and over the “Energie-Spürweg” (“Feel the energy trail”)

Early this morning I looked out of my window to check on the weather and then I saw an historical locomotive in the railway station: it was the “Krokodil” (the “crocodile”) dating from 1929, a locomotive with “cult status”! This is the showpiece of the Rhaetian Railways. Continue reading

A day to relax, but with a lot of activities

Today I opted for a day of leisure with in the morning a visit to the “Thermal bath” in Brigerbad. My Hotel Europe had an interesting offer for a “Badecombi”: a bus trip to and from the thermal bath and an entrance for three hours. So I got on the Postal car into the direction of Saas-Fee.

Sculptures and relaxation

After my arrival last Monday I have indeed been able to enjoy the quietness and the hospitality at Hotel Altana. I still was rather active ‘though. On Wednesday, July 4th, I made again one of the walks which are my favourites when I do not want to make so much effort: from Scuol to Sur En, about a one-and-a-half hour on foot alongside the river Inn.

The Dala Ravine and the Walliser Alpentherme

The river the Dala is all present in and around Leukerbad: it runs from the glacier areas to the northeast of Leukerbad, near the Majinghorn (3.054m) and the Torrenthorn (2.997m) through a deep cleft to Leukerbad  where it flows through the valley towards the Rhône in a slightly calmer way. That part of the Dala I have been able to discover yesterday during my walk on the Natur- und Kulturweg. Continue reading
