Bever and its surrounding area
The mountain village of Bever in the heart of Upper Engadine is only a few minutes by car from St. Moritz. The black crags of the local mountain, Crasta Mora, are the emblem of this community, and Bever has received prizes for preserving the character and appearance of the village. It is a quiet place with around 700 residents and is surrounded by magnificent scenery. This makes it an ideal holiday resort for anyone who enjoys being close to nature and who likes getting away from it all.
