These mountains, this vast expanse, this light! The Engadin St. Moritz region works its magic as a landscape and as a myth, harmoniously combining nature, tradition and lifestyle. The sun-drenched high valley seems to have been crafted by the hands of an artist: majestic mountains form a guard of honour – but far enough apart for visitors to enjoy air and light. As the mountains are only just over 4000 m, the sun can penetrate the valley all day long.
With four main summits and 350 km of pistes with guaranteed snow, 150 km of hiking trails and 190 km of cross-country ski trails, Engadin St. Moritz is one of the largest winter sports areas in Switzerland – and one of the most beautiful. The location’s range of 13 totally different holiday resorts also make an important contribution to its reputation.
While sophisticated St. Moritz is world-famous for its glamorous nightlife, the villages maintain rural traditions and boast lovingly restored houses, intact village centres, and welcoming bars and restaurants. But nature is and remains the leading lady in Engadin St. Moritz. It has all the space that it needs to unfold – and reciprocates by offering visitors unlimited opportunities to enjoy it.
