Things to Do in St Moritz

The glossiest ski resort in Switzerland – and possibly the world – St Moritz is a stronghold of European royalty, the wealthy and the famous, who migrate here with the snow every winter to see and be seen in the pages of upmarket gossip magazines. Perched at 1,856 meters (6,090 feet) in the Alps north of the Bernina Pass, this stylish town is surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery and bordered by the sparkling waters of Lake Moritz. 

Famous across the globe as the world’s glitziest ski resort, St Moritz is the home of downhill ski-ing as well as the notorious Cresta bobsleigh run and the annual Engadin Skimarathon through the surrounding Upper Engadin valley. In winter the lake freezes over and becomes a glamorous paradise for curling, ice skating, horse racing and polo, while the ski-ing is some of the best in the world; with around 60 lifts and 350 km (217 miles) of piste, the going is particularly good for intermediate skiers and boarders.

As well as being an Eden for winter-sports fanatics, the exclusive streets of St Moritz are packed with chalet-style, upmarket hotels and designer stores, from Gucci to Prada. Hugely expensive restaurants, bars and exclusive nightclubs add a late-night party ambiance to the town – and half the charm of a visit is bar hopping and star spotting.

Engadine Valley
1 Tour and Activity

A long winding valley cupped between the snow-capped mountains of the Swiss Alps and following the Inn River, the 80-km-long Engadine (or Engadin) Valley is one of the country's most desirable holiday destinations. With a sunny climate, beautiful lakes and a stunning alpine backdrop, this makes Engadine one of Europe’s most highly populated valleys, including star-studded destinations like St Moritz. The Rhaetian Railway and the Bernina Express both run into the Upper Engadine valley, where the highest mountains of the Bernina Range play host to ski and snowboarding resorts, mighty glaciers and a range of year-round outdoor activities. The valley also hosts a number of annual festivals and events – look out for skiing competitions, horse racing and polo on the frozen St Moritz lake, windsurfing marathons and the day parade of traditional horse-drawn sleigh rides that takes place each winter.
