Fancy an excursion to enjoy the golden colours of Autumn in Switzerland? One of the most stunning places to experience Autumn Glory has got to be in Graubünden. Carmen recently took a journey by train to the beautiful lake not far from Preda called “Lai da Palpuogna” in Romansch or Palpuognasee in German.

Easily Reachable By Train or Car

You can drive directly there (and there is some parking close by) or alternatively take the train like Carmen did, from Zurich main station to Chur. At Chur you need to change to the Rhätische Bahn (RhB) as far as Preda, where you alight. From Preda it’s a lovely scenic walk along the signposted Wanderweg for about half an hour to get to the lake. The hike is suitable for children (but not pushchairs) and do take care to wear good footwear.

A few days beforehand there had been a showering of snow which added an extra dimension to the beautiful Autumn colours and looked stunning reflected in the lake.

Palpuogna Voted Most Beautiful Place in Switzerland

Well known for its beauty, in 2007 Lai da Palpuogna was voted the most beautiful place in Switzerland by a Swiss television program. You can walk around the lake in about 20 mins or so and if you bring a picnic with you are there are lots of places en route where you could stop to enjoy it.
