5 Things to do in St. Moritz
Soak up the sunset from the summit of Muottas Muragl
Once you get up here, you’ll never want to leave. Muottas Muragl boasts the best view over the Upper Engadin lakes. In fact, it’s one of the most impressive panoramas in all of Switzerland. To get there, climb aboard the enchanting, vintage Muottas Muragl funicular railway. You can dine and spend the night at the mountain hotel.
Go dancing at the Dracula Club
The Dracula Club is a secret tip in St. Moritz. Gunter Sachs opened this world famous club in 1974, and founded its reputation for the most exclusive parties. Everyone talks about this club, but hardly anyone knows much about it. Then as now, the doors of this private club only open for members and their friends – and in summer for those attending the Festival da Jazz. So if you don’t have friends in high places, make sure you buy tickets to the Jazz Festival!
Enjoy a drop of whisky
Hotel Waldhaus am See boasts the world’s most extensive whisky bar. Called Devil’s Place, this in-house bar stocks 2,500 types of whisky. The impressive collection has made it into the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records on numerous occasions.
Explore the local architecture
The St. Moritz skyline is diverse, contradictory, unusual – and often underrated. Its architectural highlights include Norman Foster’s Chesa Futura, the leaning tower, and the stadium that was used during the 1928 and 1948 Winter Olympic Games.
Lake Staz in the early morning
The Engadin is blessed with sunny skies almost all year round, so that even the mountain lakes heat up to over 20 degrees in summer. «Lej da Staz» or Lake Staz is one of the Engadin’s best lakes for swimming. The fen meadows and reed banks give it a very special character. Take an early morning dip to invigorate body and soul, or take time for yoga to charge up with new energy and inspiration.
