After the bridge at the campsite, the sunny trail on the Via Engiadina leads slightly uphill via Prazet along lush flower meadows to Brail. A sunny hike suitable for prams with views of the Inn or the National Park on the opposite side of the valley.

Brail – the small fraction of Zernez is home to the smallest 5-star superior hotel in Switzerland.
