Suvretta House St. Moritz

«Allegra» in St. Moritz

St. Moritz is the birthplace of Alpine winter holidays (1864) and the venue of two Olympic Winter Games. But St. Moritz owes its original significance to the mineral springs discovered 3000 years ago, establishing it as a summer spa very early on.

The Engadine St. Moritz holiday region has much to offer, both in the winter and in the summer: succulent Alpine meadows, idyllic mountain lakes and fascinating glaciers that beckon visitors who enjoy hiking, mountainbiking, climbing, golfing, tennis or equestrian sports. Diverse water sports activities are available as well. In the exceptionally multifaceted skiing regions of Corviglia/Piz Nair, Corvatsch, Diavolezza/Lagalb and Zuoz, winter sports enthusiasts can discover a total of 350 km of dazzling ski runs. Thanks to the elevation and modern snowmaking equipment, the region is known for being reliable as regards snow cover. Additionally, 220 km of cross-country skiing trails, several skating rinks, impressive snowshoe tours and pleasant sleigh rides contribute to an unforgettable winter holiday experience.

Further attractions such as the horse races and polo tournaments on the frozen St. Moritz Lake, the Cresta Run and the Olympic Toboggan Track, various music, gourmet and opera festivals as well as the iconic Bernina and Glacier Express trains complement a uniquely eclectic lineup of leisure activities.

To this very day, Engadiners have their own language – Rhaeto-Romanic. It has its roots in an original Rhaetian tongue which blended into and fused with the Latin that the ancient Romans had brought to the region.

Schlitteda Engiadinaisa

In the snow-clad Engadine winter, should you encounter an artistically decorated horse-drawn sleigh occupied by festively dressed young couples, then love is in the air. The Schlitteda Engiadinaisa is an ancient wedding custom that begins with a boisterous sleigh ride and generally extends far into the wee hours with music, dance, and song.

Chalandamarz

Early in the morning on every first day of March (chalanda = first), singing Engadine youngsters carrying cowbells and wielding whips embark on a procession around the fountains and from house to house. Their ambition is to drive the winter away and celebrate the arrival of spring.

Confectioners and nut cakes

In the 16th century, they emigrated to Italy and later on also to France, Spain, England, Poland, and Russia where they opened pastry and patisserie shops: the confectioners from the Engadine had an excellent reputation throughout Europe. Their sweet legacy, the legendary “Tuorta di Nusch”, made with shortcrust pastry, lots of butter, and a chopped walnut filling, does not quite comply with modern nutrition trends, but it’s always worth the occasional sin. Incidentally, you can conveniently order the delectable temptation at Suvretta House.
