Pontresina is a recognised climatic health resort (category 2) and is located in an exquisite and bracing high-mountain climate. The cool, extremely dry and pure air, practically cloud-free skies, fog-free atmosphere and frequent bright sunshine all have a bracing effect. Pontresina is located in the Bernina area, which is protected from the Maloja wind that often blows down the Engadin Valley. All these factors have a positive impact on a variety of illnesses.
The mountain panorama with the Bernina Massif is unique
The moderate to strong stimulating properties of the category 2 climate can have a positive impact on the nervous and respiratory systems and the metabolism, resulting in improved overall health. That is why many top athletes choose Pontresina and the Engadin as their own high-altitude training venue.
