St. Moritz – the diamond among the resorts

Published on : Monday, July 27, 2015

st. moritzIn St. Moritz, happiness is invariably within easy reach – you just need to stretch out your hand and grasp it. Beneath the deep-blue sky, the lake plateau glistens in the afternoon sunlight and the fragrant aroma of the Swiss stone pine forests hangs in the air. Just like the passers-by who gaze admiringly at the exquisitely decorated shop windows in the pedestrian zone, time does not seem to be in any particular hurry in this legendary sunny summer weather that lights up St. Moritz like some huge, spot-lit stage.

 
Down below on the lake, the boats set their sails into the Maloja wind, which – as precisely as a Swiss watch – blows up around midday. Up above on the Corviglia and Corvatsch mountains, hikers are lured by spectacular trails ascending to dizzying heights of up to 3,000m (10,000ft) above sea level. Meanwhile, mountain bikers go their own ways: the bike trails around St. Moritz are among the best in the world and take you on delightful tours of varying degrees of difficulty on and around the highest peak in the Eastern Alps. Those trails can also be explored by e-bike. With an environmentally-friendly electric motor to power-assist your pedalling and with the mountain bike transport service on our mountain railways, these vehicles take you further than you might think – far into the Engadin nature, which is so stunningly beautiful that it could have been sculpted by an artist’s hand. The true mountains start up on the Diavolezza. Vis-� -vis the Diavolezza – where you can almost touch the snow – the Bernina massif towers above the scenery with eight peaks ranging up to about the four thousand metre mark: a veritable feast for the eyes and an El Dorado for climbers and alpine mountaineers. And on Muottas Muragl you have the most spectacular and famous view on the mountains and the lakes.

 

 

Europe’s highest-lying shopping street, Via Serlas, offers a unique shopping experience. Prestigious fashion labels can be found in elegant boutiques within the smallest of areas. But ordinary sports outlets, delightful souvenir and gift shops, and exclusive delicatessens also belong to the wide range of shopping facilities in this chic Alpine destination. And the resort also shows its good taste with a range of delicious local specialities.

 

 

Over 300 GaultMillau points make the entire Engadin St. Moritz region an absolute paradise for food connoisseurs. However, more simple establishments show that they, too, have great taste – and serve up specialities that are a treat for the eye as well as the palate. At the restaurant up on the mountain Diavolezza you can even enjoy Indian menus.

 

 

Mountain railways included: Make the most of your holiday with the “Mountain railways included” offer. Nowhere else can you go so high for such low prices: stay for at least two nights at any of up to 100 hotels, and travel is included on up to 13 cable cars, funiculars and chairlifts in Engadin St. Moritz.
