Intro

Wonderfully pine forests surround Engadine’s mountain resort and spa town, which is defined by stylish hotels from the Belle Epoque. Its village seems to have risen out of a fairy tale. Skirted by the imposing Bernina Massif, the historic mountain village (1,800 meters) casts its spell on visitors as soon as they arrive.

Pontresina enjoys a sunny, sheltered location at the entrance to the Val Bernina (Berninatal) on a south-west facing terrace just 7 km from St. Moritz. The first hotels for guests were built as early as the 19th century. The charm of this medium-sized resort lies in the architectural blend of fine old Engadine houses with their typical “sgraffito” (decorated walls) from the 17/18th centuries and the elegant hotels in Belle Epoque style. A modern conference centre completes the village’s infrastructure.

The mountain pass and, since the early 20th century, the Bernina railway line lead over the 2330 m high Bernina Pass towards Italy. At sightseeing speed, the Bernina Express passes the massive Morteratsch Glacier. From the Ospizio Bernina station there is a lovely view over the mountain lakes of Lago Nero and Lago Bianco. From the Alp Grüm stop, you can see a wide view as far as the Puschlav valley in southern Grisons.

Winter

Pontresina, the best of high alpine pleasures: Imposing peaks and glaciers surround this idyllic resort with its picturesque alleyways, making it a favourite base for ice-climbing, ski touring and snowshoeing. Cross-country skiers also like to stop by, as the famous marathon route virtually runs through the village. In addition, Pontresina is considered a stronghold of curling in Switzerland.

For families, the ski area of San Spiert offers varied slopes and a toboggan run, while Diavolezza presents a spectacular series of challenges. Switzerland’s longest glacier descent is found in the Diavolezza/Lagalb ski area. It runs on the moraines of the Pers and Morteratsch glaciers. With a gradient of 86%, Lagalb also has the steepest descent in Graubünden. Visitors looking for a romantic ambiance enjoy horse-drawn sleighrides through the snow-covered pine forests and in the Roseg Valley.

Summer

580 kilometers of hiking trails open the impressive mountain world up to the highest peaks in the eastern Alps, the Piz Palü and the Piz Bernina. They lead to attractive destinations such as the romantic wilderness of Val Roseg and the panoramic mountain Muottas Muragl, which offers a breathtaking view over the entire lake district. 400 kilometers of bike paths, a fixed rope park, two exciting Via Ferrata routes, a modern congress and cultural center and a lively new adventure pool complement the variety of scenic impressions.

Family

Magnificent glaciers and impressive Art Nouveau architecture create a unique backdrop for family holidays to remember in Pon- tresina. With 580 km of walking trails, 400 km of bike routes, an idyllic Alpine show dairy and the largest ibex colony in the Alps, there’s never a dull moment in this resort set against a spectacu- lar high Alpine backdrop.
