>> Would you recommend another town between Bremgarten and St Moritz to spend a few days ... Perhaps somewhere that would offer light hiking ... Perhaps the picture perfect small town on a hillside with not much more to offer than quiet beauty and a few mountain goats
The beautiful mountainside village of Guarda in the Lower Engadin might fit the bill.
I have written trip reports (with photos) about Guarda, and a lovely, but larger nearby town called Scuol. If you are interested, here are the links:
From Bremgarten to Guarda, the route is:
The last stretch "Guarda" to "Guarda cumün" is in a small PostBus which meets the train in the valley and takes you up the mountain to the village.
Between Landquart and Guarda you travel through the following stations (without changing trains): Malans, Schiers, Jenaz, Küblis, Saas im Prättigau, Klosters Platz, Vereina Tunnel, Saglians, Lavin. Most of that is very scenic.
My description of this train route (in the opposite direction, including photos) is in my post of Feb 28, 2017 - 4:36 AM on the following page:
From Guarda to St Moritz is less than an hour-and-a-half through the pretty valley of the River Inn (called En in the local Romansch language).
