St. Moritz is one of the most famous holiday destinations in the world. It name is protected as a quality brand which stands globally for style, sport and class.
There are some places in the world which are simply different from all the others. Merely the mention of their names awaken longing and conjure up vivid images. One may like them, or then again not – but they leave no one indifferent. St. Moritz is just such a place. A genuine holiday classic. For it was here at 1,856 metres above sea level, amidst the magical lake region of the Upper Engadine, that winter holidays were invented and the Olympic Winter Games were held on two occasions. Switzerland’s first electric light, its first ski school and its first electrically-powered trams also figure among the many pioneering deeds in the long list of St. Moritz accomplishments. But lest it be overlooked – the origins of the importance of St. Moritz lie in the healing quality of its mineral springs, known for nigh on 3,000 years.
