St. Moritz

Switzerland
St. Moritz travel packages
The ever-sunny playground of snow-seeking jetsetters and Olympians
Named for St. Maurice, the legendary early Christian martyr thought to have died there, St. Moritz has long drawn visitors, both pilgrims and those seeking to be rejuvenated by its healing waters. St. Moritz is also the birthplace of Swiss winter tourism, and several sports, from the luge to the bobsled, so the place naturally hosted two Winter Olympics. St. Moritz remains a location beloved among athletes and the world's elites, drawn in part by its surprisingly sunny climate, despite the surrounding glaciers and high snowfall.

For a quite literal top experience, head to Diavolezza, the area's highest peak. This peak is accessible by cable car and has a panoramic restaurant, as well as advanced skiing (including moonlight skiing once a month, when the moon shines brightest). Far closer, Lake Silvaplana has the wonderfully photogenic Crap da Sass castle, and plenty of windsurfers. For views of St. Moritz, you can visit Muottas Muragls, which has a cable car, restaurant, and good hiking trails. Trade glitzy St. Moritz for a quaint, traditional alpine village by visiting Pontresina, or the nearby town of Sils, home to Nietzsche's summer home, and visited several times by Anne Frank.

Things to do in St. Moritz

The birthplace of several sports, and the host to pilgrims and those seeking aid from its healing waters for centuries, St. Moritz has always been a haven for travelers. The site of two Winter Olympics, this village is an athlete's dream, any time of year, but is also famous for its luxuries, available thanks to the VIPs who flock there. The lowlands nearby offer quaint villages and castles, but take the time in joining St. Moritz's elite visitors in looking down on the rest of the world by taking cable cars up to the towering peaks around, then perhaps hiking down, or lingering at a panoramic cafe. When we send you your customized itinerary, you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package, or consider adding later.
