The Engadin (or Engadine) is the uppermost part of the Inn in Switzerland, forming the southern part of the canton Graubunden. The valley is made up by two parts , Upper Engadin with the famous St. Moritz and Lower Engadin with the main town Scuol
Romansh is the main language. German is the lingua franca as it's taught in schools in both parts and widely spoken. English is also useful.
There is a small airport in Samedan (www.engadin-airport.ch), which is around 5 kilometres/20 minutes away from St. Moritz. It provides flights to the international airports of Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Milan, and Munich.
From Northern Switzerland take Julier Pass or Albula Pass for the Upper Engadin, of which only the first is open during winter, the Lower Engadin is served by Fluela Pass (only open in summer) and the car shuttle train through the Vereina Tunnel (CHF 31.00-42.00 depending on the season). From Austria follow the main road along the river Inn that splits off from the main motorway an Landeck. From Italy the Engadin can be reached via Bernina Pass or Maloja Pass from the province of Lombardia and via Fuorn Pass (Ofen Pass) and Reschen Pass from the Vinschgau valley (South Tyrol). All four passes are open in winter.
A train line of the RHB runs along most of the valley connecting St. Moritz to Scuol. It seves all larger towns and villages in the Engadin.
Even the smalles village of the valley can be reached with the yellow busses run by the swiss postal. The bus lines are usually well interconnected to each other and the timetable of the trains.
