Golden autumn in St Moritz
Autumn in the Swiss alpine resort town of St Moritz means golden-coloured larch forests, dark blue sparkling lakes and crystal clear mountain air. During daytime it can still become comfortably warm, during the nights you can sleep with open windows due to the lower temperatures. Centrally located in the inspiring Engadin valley, the holiday resort celebrates the picture-book beauty of autumn in high style – with its inimitable cosmopolitan charm.
MOUNTAIN RAILWAYSMake the most of your holiday with the Mountain railways included offer. Nowhere else can you go so high for such low prices: stay for at least two nights at any of up to 100 hotels, and travel is included on up to 13 cable cars, funiculars and chairlifts in Engadin St Moritz. This offer is valid until October 31 (without use of pistes during ski periods), and is not valid with any other offers or discounts.
CARRIAGE RIDES A romantic horse-drawn carriage ride around the lake, through the Staz forest or through glamorous St Moritz is one of the highlights of an autumn stay. A leisurely trot along the course of a river, past fragrant alpine roses and deep into a mountainous side valley, offers a wonderfully contemplative experience.
SHOPPING Via Serlas is not only Europe’s highest shopping avenue, it also boasts the highest density of top brands. The diverse shopping offer available at the fashionable alpine resort includes traditional sports outlets, souvenir and gift shops, and exclusive delicatessens. Guests from abroad also have the opportunity to reclaim in cash the Value Added Tax (VAT) on any purchases of CHF 300 or more they make on site in St Moritz. These VAT refunds can be conveniently obtained at the offices of Travel Tours AG on the Via Serlas shopping avenue.
ARTSThe galleries and museums of St Moritz are too well-stocked to be missed. Combine a tour of the galleries in St Moritz Bad and the village centre with a stroll along the lake – where you are likely to come across many of the motifs that you will later encounter in one of the galleries. Famous artists have found inspiration, while lesser-known names have excelled themselves in their particular field.
