Striking glaciers, romantic mountain lakes and fragrant meadows in full bloom. The first paragraphs of book Heidi become a reality here in Pontresina. No surprise: surrounded by the impressive Bernina Range, this historical mountain village enchants guests as soon as they arrive. The alpine location offers hikers, trail runners, and mountain bikers paradisiacal scenery. Climbers and high alpine hikers rave about climbing the 4,049-metre-high Piz Bernina. In short: summer holidays in the mountains are better than any picture book and without Alpine kitsch. Guaranteed.
