A Polo tournament was held on the frozen lake, it is held each year, provided the thickness of the ice is sufficient. Cross country skiing, dog sledding and snow golf is also played on the lake. Very interesting place to visit.

Lej da Staz is an extremely easy to reach little lake placed between St. Moritz and Celerina. its rather small size and relatively limited depth makes it the ideal place for a swim in this incredible surroundings.

Very much enjoyed the walk through the forest on a fine autumn morning up to and around the lake which is very scenic.

A, generally flat walk around the lake with lovely views which takes a couple of hours at an easy pace. We always do this walk when we stay in the town.

Had drinks and lunch a three times during our stay. It is si friendly. Food excellent..try their potato salad. Views of the lake early morning are fantastic and noticed a yoga class at the end of the little wooden pier. This lovely restaurant is on the wall from pontresina to St moritz.

It's a nice small lake, which gets warmer at the end of the summer, so if you wanna have a swim but you find the St. Moritzersee too cold, just take a 15min walk and enjoy this lake. You will find a restaurant by the lake too. Ideal with kids too!
