Culture in Lower Engadin

Engadin architecture & sgraffito

Sgraffito is an artisanal craft that contributes greatly to the unmistakable charm of the Engadin’s villages. Since the height of sgraffito’s popularity between the 17th and mid 18th centuries, many of these decorative paintings have disappeared, worn away by the weather or destroyed when houses are demolished or renovated. However if you’re still keen to explore the origins of the sgraffiti art form, Lower Engadin’s southern slopes are a great place to start. The journey begins in the Schellen-Ursli village and concludes at a Graubünden outdoor museum.

The most beautiful sgraffito villages of Lower Engadin

  • Guarda

    In the almost completely preserved village center time stands still. In the winding streets and on the historic footpaths, there is much to discover. Home of the Schellen-Ursli.

  • Ardez

    The open-air museum and model village of the Lower Engadin. Take your time and lose yourself - in a positive way.

  • Tschlin

    High above the inn. A wonderful world of its own.

  • Sent

    The proud Engadin mountain village with its streets and the village square invites you to linger.

  • Susch

    Like a house wall, Susch stands firmly and immovably like a dam on the Flüelapass. Its façade gives an idea of the rich culture that awaits us when entering.

  • Ftan

    Located on a sunny plateau. Divided into Ftan Grond and Ftan Pitschen ("small"). A visit, whether in winter or summer, is always worthwhile.

  • Scuol

    Who would have thought that? Away from the main street «Stradun», the capital of the Lower Engadin with its two original village parts Sot and Sura offers an intact villagescape.
