A lovely present you're giving eachother for your 50th Wedding Anniversary! Our congratulations with your Anniversary!
ad 2. From Maloja you can make a quite short and easy walk to the Tower Belvedere. From there you'll have beautiful views to the Maloja Pass, into Bergell to the South-West and to the Upper Engadine lakes to the Nort-East.
ad 3. I agree.
ad 4. Arosa and Weisshorn: hope to visit these impressive places in the future. No comment.
I think the walk through Val Bever will be perfect. Start from the train station in Bever, and walk, mainly on the left side of the railway track, towards Gasthaus Spinas, a very nice place to eat or drink something. On you way back consider taking the other, North-Eastern, side of the valley, through forests and meadows. At some places you have to climb a bit. My guess is, you'll manage. It's about 1 1/2 hours each way.
Another suggestion is: take the funicular from Punt Muragl to Muottas Muragl and walk from there to Alp Languard. At some parts you'll have to climb, but I think it is not too long and not too steep. (But check maps for yourself to be sure). There's a chairlift from Alp Languard to Pontresina.
Some years ago we made (for the second time) the walk from Murtel (intermediate station from Surlej to Corvatsch) via Fuorcla Surlej, into Val Roseg. From there the easy part of the walk to Pontresina starts. A very beautiful day trip. But again, check maps.
We are fond of quite an easy walk in the Eastern part of Switzerland. You'll have to go to Scuol, from there to Ramosch and Vnà (the timetable will help of course). From Vnà the very nice walk starts along the North-Eastern slope of Val Sinestra towards Zuort. There's a Restaurant, Hof Zuort, and nearby is the house of the conductor Mengelberg. It will be a long day but not a strenuous walk.
An easy walk is from Pontresina to St Moritz (v.v). It's going up and down a bit, through meadows and woodland and along the lake Lej da Staz.
Go by train to Morteratsch station and from there walk to the glacier and back. Very beautiful but shocking how much the glacier has shrunken over the past and many years.
Maybe there's something of your taste here?
Enjoy your preparations,
