The picturesque, sunny village Zuoz is one of the most beautiful destinations of Engadin St. Moritz. It is also the best preserved village in the Upper Engadine. The old houses decorated with ornate frescoes and the many traditional chalets immediately catch your eye when you arrive in Zuoz. Zuoz is above all a charming family ski resort, which is connected to the network of Engadin St. Moritz. Together, this results in 350 km of alpine pistes and 220 km of cross-country routes (classic and skating). Access to the Engadine ski area is possible through the shared lift pass for Upper Engadin.

Zuoz is the perfect destination for winter holidaymakers who long for rest and relaxation. Unlike the cosmopolitan ski resort of St. Moritz, 6 km away, Zuoz is characterized by its village and family atmosphere. In Zuoz you are far away from the bustle of the big winter sports resorts. Pretty craft shops along the cobbled streets, the small fountain in the village square and the large palatial, medieval houses take visitors on a journey through time. An unbeatable cure for stress and an irresistible invitation to break the routine of everyday life.
