Wild and romantic, sunny, and sheltered from the wind. Pontresina is situated at 1,805 metres above sea level in a side valley, very close to the Bernina Range that includes the two most famous peaks of the Engadine: Piz Palü and Piz Bernina. Here, you will find peace and tranquillity as well as action and variety. This mountain village, steeped in history, excites from the moment you set foot in it, with the beauty of the traditional Engadine houses and the elegance of large hotels of the Belle Époque immediately transporting you back to a time in which time and everyday life play a secondary role.
Thanks to the lake landscape, the mountains and the wind, a wide variety of sports on land, water and in the air invite you to try them out. Paragliding, biking, kiting and golfing. Almost nothing is impossible in the Engadine.
In summer, the calls of the marmots and countless hiking and biking routes lure you outside.
In winter you can't resist the quiet, white landscape and the wide range of sports on offer.
