The name Zuort possibly derives from the word sourd (Romantsch), sordus (Latin) standing for deaf.

Deafness, when visiting Zuort, might be evoked by the gentle murmur of the two meeting streams.
The only perceptible sound.

The almost millenarian toponym stands for a gentle clearing in the pine forest, at the top of Val Sinestra in the lower Engadine.

Zuort settles in the centre of an Alpine Triangle comprising Austria, Switzerland and Italy.

Zuort existed two centuries before the oldest of these three nations, Austria, then Dutchy of Austria, had been founded.

Zuort and the nearby Fimberpass hold archeological evidence of alpine rural life of the Neolithicum. Last hunter gatherers and first herders stalked the sunny meadows and took shelter in rock cavities at 8000 feet a.M.S.C., as early as 5000 years B.C.

Those were the times of the famous glacier mummy Oetzi, exhumed not so far from Zuort from his icy coffin, in the Similaun glacier, not too long ago.
