Arrival & Accommodation

Pontresina

The refined pleasure of the high alpine area in Upper Engadin: Pontresina

Nestled in the Bernina massif, wild and romantic, sunny and sheltered from wind, Pontresina is said to be a place for relaxation and sports. With the destination Engadin St. Moritz, Pontresina shares thee of Switzerland’s most legendary alpine areas: Diavolezza, Corviglia and Corvatsch.

The wellness offerings of the local hotels as well as the Bellavita adventure pool and spa turn afternoons into feel-good moments. The close proximity to Italy ensures the top restaurants and long hours of sunshine. A perfect combination of excitement and relaxation. Pontresina: you’ll feel at home the moment you arrive.

The permanent presence of Piz Bernina (4.049 m), the highest peak in the eastern Alps, is a wonderful sight to behold, standing as it does alongside Palü, Roseg and Bellavista, so that climbers, mountaineers, hikers, mountain bikers, golfers and swimmers cannot help but look up in admiration from time to time. Relaxing and unwinding just doesn’t get any more impressive than this. The proximity to Italy and a favourable climate guarantee plenty of sunshine and mild, dry weather. As a health resort known for the quality of its air, Pontresina encourages visitors to take a deep breath and relax. Nature and purity are its true luxuries – luxuries that mountain enthusiasts in particular cherish.

 

Dolcefarniente: Haute cuisine, tranquillity and a taste of the high life

Gault Millau restaurants ensure plenty of tasty treats for gourmets, with numerous award-winning restaurants offering typical regional and Mediterranean specialities to be enjoyed in cosy, Swiss surroundings. Evenings of music and theatre evenings with notable artists at the Rondo Convention and Event Centre are well known, including far beyond the Engadine valley. Ideal for conferences and seminars in the off-peak season, the Rondo inspires people in the peak season with the very finest arts and culture events. A journey on the Bernina Express through the spectacular mountain arena of a UNESCO World Heritage Site is equally inspirational.

Whether you love nature, enjoy good food, climbing the highest peaks, mountain biking or relaxing in a spa – you’re certain to be able to experience the very finest pleasures in life in Pontresina.
