Destination Info

St Moritz is located in the southern part of the Swiss Alps, near the Italian border, in the heart of the Engadine valley. It is the only town of Switzerland to have hosted the Winter Olympics and it is recognized as the birthplace of winter tourism and modern Alpine sports. The overall ski area is divided into three separate sectors, Corviglia at 3057m, Corvatsch at 3300m and Diavolezza-Lagalb at 2978m. All three areas are connected between themselves by bus and train, but not by lift or pistes, and each has their own charm and offers a completely different ski experience.

In comparison to other winter destinations, St Moritz has a more prestige vibe to it and it is no wonder why some say it is ‘the winter playground of the wealthy’. In the town center, you will find the picturesque lanes boasting with a diverse array of fashion stores and boutiques, showcasing some of the world’s best brands of clothes, jewelry etc.

Many don’t know that before St Moritz rose up to be an exclusive ski resort, it was primarily known for its healing mineral springs. The towns spa traditions have been practiced for centuries and your winter experience would not be complete without a day of pampering and relaxation at one of the many wellness establishments.

The après ski scene is definitely prominent in St Moritz and mainly revolves around socializing and extravagant indulgence. There are venues that will satisfy all needs, from homely mountain huts to sophisticated bars, and even exclusive nightclubs.

Apres Ski

One of the most genuine après ski locations in St Moritz would be the RooBar at the Hauser hotel. Located in the heart of St Moritz, the hotel boasts the largest and sunniest terrace where young and old gather to sip on mulled wine and aperitifs.

In hotel Schweizerhof you will discover the indoor bar street, with three different locations depending on your mood. At QN you can enjoy classic cocktail, selected champagne, wine as well as a selection of cigars that can be enjoyed in a cozy atmosphere that transforms into a party as the time progresses. The Muli, is a more sophisticated, chill out lounge where you can end your evening in a relaxed manner. The Stubli bar has a fun atmosphere to it and there is almost always something going on.

Arguably one of the most famous nightclubs in town, Kings Club gives you the opportunity to dance the night away, listening to world class DJ sets and socializing with international jet setters.
