Hello franbemadd. The Engadine is wonderful indeed. The Upper Engadine has more high and snow-capped mountains than the Lower Engadine, but is also a bit more crowded - although this still isn't much compared to summer tourist hotspots such as the Interlaken and Zermatt regions, in my experience. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay you can consider Bever, La Punt or Zuoz. From these towns you can easily reach both the Upper and the Lower Engadine. If you find a hotel
near a railway station, you can make all your trips by public transportation and you won't have to walk that much. More information can be found in the Graubünden section
It's quite a long trip from Mürren to the Engadine; about 6 hours using the quickest route via Landquart and Sagliains. A slight detour over the breathtaking Albula train line can be made via Chur. The timetable
will display all options and details.
