In the astonishing Upper Engadin: Bever
You are at the right place in Bever if you are looking for authenticity. Bever represents the Engadin in ist purest form. The village is the most primval in the valley, and nature appears as almost untouched and wild.
Bever is characterised by its combination of straightforward Engadin charm, tranquillity and closeness to nature. Standing at 1,700 metres above sea level, in the centre of Upper Engadin, Bever is reputedly the region’s oldest village of all. The centre of the village consists of various historic buildings, and contains beautiful gardens that bear witness both to earlier times and to the taste and cultural awareness of the area’s wealthier, well-travelled families. Magnificent buildings with beautiful interiors and vaulted ceilings contrast with the solidity of the Engadin’s farmhouses.
This small mountain community lives in harmony with the original landscape surrounding it, which is waiting to be discovered. The neighbouring valley known as Val Bever offers the attractions of largely untouched nature and tranquillity. The valley through which the Beverin flows is barely populated, and has been classed as an Alpine rest area since 1971. It is used only for low-impact tourism. Summer attractions include discovery tours on foot or mountain bike, while winter visitors can trek through the snowy solitude of the valley on snowshoes or tour it on cross-country skis.
