1'817 - 2'200 m a.s.l. >>`The 310-inhabitant village Maloja is situated between the Upper Engadine lakeland region and the Bergell Valley at 1817m altitude. Maloja is known for its inspiring and relaxing nature and its proximity to St. Moritz. The earliest finds indicate that the area around Maloja was already populated around 2000 years BC. Testimonies are mainly the Druid stone of Maloja, coin finds, tomb graves and ornament stones. Due to its location on the pass road, Maloja has held an important function in Roman times. During the Napoleonic wars it was occupied by French and Austrian troops. Approximately 100 years later, in 1880, the Belgian count Camille de Renesse discovered the breathtaking landscape and transformed Maloja into a glamorous meeting place for the international aristocracy by building the Kursaal Maloja (now Maloja Palace). Maloja also has a lot to offer to art lovers: the studio Segantini (the former studio of the famous Italian painter Giovanni Segantini) and the so-called "Sentiero Segantini", a walk connecting important stages of Segantini's work in Maloja and documenting them with charts, are all definitely worth seeing. The magnificent "Belvedere" castle, a remnant of the residence of the count, offers an excellent view over the Bergelltal and can be reached from the center by foot in 20 minutes. In the summer exhibitions are often held here. Snowshoe adventure tours, moonlight skiing, torch-sledging, full moon hikes, etc. Postbus connection to all ski resorts in the Engadine available.
