The resort is the playground of the rich, and the resort boasts plenty of luxury hotels, boutique shops and spas. Located in the Upper Engadine, the scenery that surrounds St Moritz means the town itself pales into insignificance, for it’s some of the most beautiful in Switzerland.

There’s also the Fun Park especially for snowboarders plus 150 kilometres of winter hiking trails. Had enough skiing for the day? Then toboggan down the natural ice run, which is said to be the oldest in the world.
The après ski in St Moritz varies as much as the tourists who visit the resort, from expensive gourmet restaurants, to chilled out and affordable taverns. If you want exceptional gourmet food try the two Michelin starred Jöhri’s Talvo, a restaurant housed in what used to be an Engadine farmhouse. For something completely different Chesa Veglia dates back to 1658 and is pleasingly rustic with breathtaking terrace views. Tuck into fondue with the locals at Engiadina and rub shoulders with the glamorous clientele in Roo Bar.
