Full description

Many places on our planet are simply unlike anywhere else. St. Moritz is one of them and is listed among the rarest places to visit in Switzerland.

The winter wonderland of St. Moritz has been attracting visitors, celebrities and royal families since 1864.

The reason behind this is that the ski resort of St. Moritz is one of the sunniest places in the Swiss Alps. It is the birthplace of winter Alpine tourism and the first geographical location that has been trademarked.

It is also considered as the first destination in the Swiss Alps, and in the whole of Europe, where a Golf tournament took place. It is already more than a century since this destination became a world-class resort prided for its elegance and exclusivity.

The magnificent Alpine scenery that is offered at an elevation of 1856m with 25 crystal-clear mountain lakes, glaciers and forests, defies all the expectations.

The area boasts a number of sunny days (about 322 sunny days in a year) proved to be aesthetically pleasing to anyone’s eyes. The emblem of St. Moritz is the “Sun,” which describes this region perfectly.

St. Moritz is also well-known for its luxurious hotels with high-quality services, considered among the best ones in the Swiss Alps, especially the hotels, that are situated on the Lake St. Moritz.

St. Moritz is a stunning region both during the summer as well as winter months. The magnificent healing features of the hot springs and the first-class service, as well as numerous tennis courts, golf fields, hang-gliding, horse riding, recreational centres based on hot springs, and healing mud baths, attract more than 1.5 million tourists each year.

The summer activities also include the pure pleasure of mountain biking, hiking trails between the Corviglia and Muottas Muragl Mountains, or sailing and windsurfing on Lake St. Moritz.

As for winter sports activities, it is enough to say that St. Moritz was the starting point for winter Alpine tourism, and it has managed to host the Winter Olympics twice (in 1928 and 1948).

This region has four areas for skiing and snowboarding and even artificial ice-skating rinks for summer.

Below you can find some places of interest, which deserve a try in St. Moritz:

  • White Turf Racing Association – The unique event of horse racing takes place during the wintertime in St. Moritz.
