Not only mountain hikers and sportsmen like to come to St. Moritz in summer. The tour around Lake St. Moritz is suitable for everyone.

The starting point is the St. Moritz train station, where you can get directly to the lake, or take the Engadin bus to the "Catholic Church" stop and start your walk from there. Whichever side you want to walk around the lake is the same. Either way, you won't miss the view of glamorous St. Moritz.

 

Note for wheelchair users:
Getting on the bus is no problem. But please note that there is only room for one or two wheelchair users per bus.
On the other side of the street from the Catholic Church bus stop there is a wheelchair-accessible WC (with Eurokey) and 2 wheelchair parking spaces for motorised travellers.
The route consists partly of tarred roads, partly of well rolled natural paths. The lake is not secured with a railing. You should therefore avoid risky turning manoeuvres.
The path around the lake is mostly flat, but short gradients of up to 11% are for going over bridges.

Author’s recommendation

Combine the walk with a visit to St. Moritz village. The escalator takes you directly to the world famous Via Serlas.

Diese Tour hat in Tirano begonnen! Wir sind mit der Rätischen Bahn nach St. Moritz gefahren, danach haben wir den Rundgang um den See gemacht und natürlich auch einen Abstecher nach St. Moritz selbst. Am späten Nachmittag ging es dann wieder zurück mit der Rätischen Bahn nach Tirano. Das war ein absolut genialer Tag! Nicht nur das Wetter war super, schon allein die Fahrt mit dem "Bernina Express" ist ein einmaliges Erlebnis. St. Moritz ist zu jeder Jahreszeit ein Erlebnis und eine Reise wert. Der Weg ist einfach und für die ganze Familie wärmstens zu empfehlen.
