We decided to walk round the lake in the evening and after a long day on the train it didn't disappoint. The views back across to St Moritz are great and it wasn't half as far as we thought.

We took the Bernina Express train from Tirano to St. Moritz, Switzerland. It is a very upmarket town with interesting building, superb shops and, of course, the wonderful lake.
On disembarking from the train we walked to the town square and enjoyed window shopping in the designer shops. We passed the Palace Hotel with its long black Rolls Royce cars lined up as runabouts for the guests at the hotel! After looking around the square we enjoyed delicious ice creams in a nearby restaurant; they have to be seen to be believed!

Making our way downhill past the luxury shops we arrived at the lake edge and enjoyed a picnic lunch overlooking the water, wooded hills and steep mountains. The walk along the lakeside is very appealing. At first we thought that we would be able to walk around the lake but discovered that it narrowed at one end and then opened out for many miles. It is so beautiful there.

Our return journey was by coach and we descended slowly along numerous hair pin bends. Looking out of the window the view was not always for the faint hearted!!

A wonderful experience to visit St. Moritz and I would love to return there to explore it further.

NB. When you leave the station it is possible to reach the upper level of the town by going through the car park and taking a series of escalators. It is possible to take a short cut to the lake without visiting the upper town.

I got to run through the woods on an August afternoon from the Youth Hostel and I found this lake unexpectedly. I took off my shirt and sneakers, and began to swim.
The natural setting is wonderful, very green and peaceful. Between the lodge and the lake there is a track that can be reached by bicycle, but it is better to go for a small path inside the forest and coming out just in front of the hostel. They are exceptional forests

The lake was still frozen when we visited but there was nothing to indicate that it is a lake. Anyone could have stepped on the lake unknowingly thinking it to be ice/snow on a ground and since the ice in some parts had become thin because of the rising temperature in middle of April, it could have proved fatal as there is no boundary wall or railing and there was not a soul to be seen around, let alone a lifegaurd on a Sunday evening
