Tradition and Luxury in Switzerland’s Famed Resort

Steffani Hotel St Moritz VillageSt. Moritz has been one of the most famous of luxury holiday resorts of the world since 1864. So recognized as a winter playground for the rich and famous, known for its style and class, the name St. Moritz as a destination is actually a trademark. Elegant and chic and nearly a mile above sea level in the high peaks of the southern Alps near the Italian border, St. Moritz is situated in the midst of a lake bespeckled landscape in the region of the Upper Engadine. For a mountain destination mostly known for its winters, the sun of St. Moritz actually shines an average of 322 days every year, creating a crisp dry climate. St. Moritz first became known for its mineral springs, later as a picture perfect winter location where the climate made the skiing snow last well into spring. The lake views and valley of the Engadine provide a perfect environment for alpine and Nordic cross-country skiing, Cresta Runs, Bob Sleds, ice skating, horse and greyhound races on the ice covered lake, and in summer, polo and golf, mountain biking, inline skating, hiking, wind surfing, tennis and sailing.
