New Destination To See Autumn Leaves, Right Here In Europe

Lifestyle News

North America and Asia may be famous for their fall leaves, but there is somewhere much closer to home where the trees are equally striking in the autumn and that is Switzerland. Nothing – not the need to pull on a cashmere jumper, nor the smell of the first log fire – announces the arrival of the new season quite as dramatically as the striking red, glimmering gold and burnt orange leaves of the Engadine trees.

Grand Hotel Kronenhof ( in Pontresina, which is located in the heavily wooded Upper Engadine Valley, has put together a special package, valid from 9 September and 20 October, to make it possible to witness this phenomenon. The package includes dinner, bed and breakfast, complimentary use of the hotel’s stunning spa facilities, a 10% discount on spa treatments and unlimited use of all the mountain railways in the Engadine/St Moritz area, so that guests can easily get out into wooded areas. Prices start from CHF 415 (approx £275) per night for two people sharing a beautiful double room; guests must stay a minimum of two nights.
The Engadine, protected by high Alpine mountains on all sides, is famous for its sunny climate and beautiful landscapes (Engadine in local Romantsch dialect means The Garden of the Inn River, as the valley is a veritable treasure trove of greenery), making it the perfect European destination to witness autumn colours set against clear blue skies.

Visits to the Engadine at this time of year are particularly popular among hikers and artists; the light in the valley is so magical it led the 19th century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche to believe that he had found “the cradle of all silver tones”.
