Pontresina is located in the highest-altitude valley that branches off from the Upper Engadine. It's a sunny place, protected from the winds, that lies on a slope opening towards the southwest. It is embedded in dense woods of larch and stone pine trees. While Pontresina is a trendy and open-minded place, it continues to maintain its tradition and cultural roots. This glacier village at the foot of Piz Bernina and Piz Palü mountains stands for a unique and multi-faceted experience of nature and the mountain environment in both summer and winter. The hotel is situated at the southern end of the village, close to the bus-stop, the post office and the shops. It takes 10 minutes by car to St. Moritz. Hiking and cross-country trails start in front of the hotel, as well as the ski pists for children. The closest large ski areas you reach within 10 minutes by car or bus.
