St. Moritz

St. Moritz is a holiday resort located in the Upper Engadine region of Switzerland, known for its sunny days and elevation of 1,856 meters. The town is recognized for being the birthplace of Alpine winter tourism in 1864 and has hosted the Winter Olympics twice.

The mineral springs that were discovered in St. Moritz more than 3,000 years ago established the town as a summer spa resort. The town has a reputation for being ahead of its time, as it was the first to have electric light at Christmastime in 1878, the first golf tournament in the Alps in 1889 and one of the first ski lifts in Switzerland in 1935.
