Tips for winter holidays in Pontresina
Wildly romantic, sunny and protected from the wind. Pontresina lies at 1'805 meters in an Upper Engadine side valley. Very close to the Bernina massif with the two most famous peaks of the Engadine: Piz Palü and Piz Bernina. The latter, at 4,049 m, is the highest peak in the Eastern Alps. Predestined peace and quiet can be found here as well as action and variety. The historic mountaineering village is already inspiring on arrival. The charm of traditional Engadine houses and the elegance of large Belle Epoque hotels immediately transport you back to a time when the world was still in order.
