Since having hosted the Olympic Winter Games in 1928 and in 1948, St Moriz became one of the most prestigious ski resorts in the world. Presently the name 'St. Moritz' stands for "elegant, vibrant and chic town" with healing mineral springs, which have received worldwide appreciation for over 3000 years. Due to its favourable weather conditions (the so called "champagne climate"), St Moriz offers its visitors wide range of winter sports opportunities, as well as perfect conditions for a long season. You are free to choose among the huge diversity of incredible summer and winter activities: from horse racing on the frozen lake to golf and curling tournaments; from cricket, polo and mountain-biking to tennis and ice scatting. Gourmet and music festivals, art, culture and the Swiss National Park - all of these irresistible attractions are available in a radius of just a few minutes. This is why the name of St Moriz has been registered as an international symbol of quality and protected trademark.
