  1. Engadin St, Moritz

Engadin St. Moritz

The resort of Engadin St. Moritz is located on the southern side of the Swiss Alps, at 1800 meters above sea level. The incomparable lake landscape has made the Engadin worldwide known as the “Festival Hall of the Alps“. The valley enjoys many sunny days, shelters mineral springs and guarantees a very pleasant climate. The Piz Bernina is the only four-thousander in the Eastern Alps (4049 m above sea level).

St. Moritz

St. Moritz is the birthplace of alpine winter tourism (1864) and has twice hosted the Winter Olympics. St. Moritz became famous due to its mineral springs, which were discovered 3000 years ago and transformed the town into a summer health resort early on. St. Moritz is located in the Upper Engadine, at an altitude of 1856 m above sea level. 

Guests from all over the world appreciate the modern alpine lifestyle, characterized by top restaurants, gorgeous slopes, hotels that set standards in every category, and international events.
