The first winter-sport resort in the world at over 150 years old, St. Moritz looks like something plucked straight out of a fairytale. Perched 1.8km up in the Engadin Valley in southern Switzerland, just across from Italy, St. Moritz is blessed with a heavenly climate, boasting 300 days of sunshine a year. Mighty mountain peaks tower over the glassy Moritz Lake: when frozen in winter it is perfect for ice-skating, curling and snow polo; while in summer outdoor enthusiasts take to the water for swimming, sailing and stand-up paddle boarding.
St Moritz’ reputation as a world-class winter-sport destination is unshakeable. Adrenalin junkies flock here for the world famous Cresta Toboggan Run, while a host of winter-sport events are held here, too, including snow polo championships and white turf - horse-racing on the frozen Lake Moritz. But that's not to say that it's all about adventure: St Moritz town, Dorf, is awash with luxury boutiques and sumptuous hotels, first-class restaurants and an exciting nightlife scene that keeps its well-heeled visitors coming back every year. The likes of Greta Garbo, Liz Taylor and Brigitte Bardot all fell for its charms - and we're sure you will too.
