#Switzerland Winter Travel Documentary (Exploring the Engadin)

Follow us on our winter adventure through Switzerland!
Known for its never-ending sunshine and its magnificent mountain scenery – the Engadin is a high alpine valley in Switzerland’s southeastern canton of Graubünden. Staying at Giardino Mountain for 10 nights, we experienced numerous of the exciting winter sports activities that make a visit to the Engadin an unforgettable experience.

Thank you:
A big THANK YOU goes to the sponsors of this trip: Giardino Mountain, St. Moritz Engadin and Pontresina Bergsteigerschule. We are also very grateful to Claudia Dressler and Sieglinde Sülzenfuhs from Global Communications Experts who came up with the idea of an Engadin Winter Documentary and were responsible for the organization of the trip. Another thank you goes to Maïté Werder from St. Moritz Engadin Tourism who helped us with the correct pronunciation of all Swiss names. We’d also like to thank all our guides and interview partners – Susi Wiprächtiger, Fabio Zanini, Christian Furger, Florian Schwarz, Gregor Stähli, Claudio Cesar & Gian Reto Clalüna. Last but not least, we would like to thank everyone who made our stay in Switzerland special including all our wonderful guides and the entire team of Giardino!
