Switzerland. The original winter.

If this message is not displayed correctly please click here.

Dear youcef

1864: the St. Moritz hotelier Johannes Badrutt makes a bet with some summer guests from England, promising them heaven on earth – in the Swiss winter. He kept his promise – and thanks to our pioneering guests, our country is regarded as the birthplace of winter tourism, home of the original winter vacation.
The things that made the Swiss winter so special are still the same today: gorgeous mountain scenery, snow-blanketed valleys and romantic villages that took shape centuries ago. And of course you – visitors from all over the world!

Join us today on a journey of discovery into the magical world of the Swiss winter. Discover the best the season has to offer – from cosy hotels to snowy activities and sparkling cultural attractions.

Welcome to the Swiss winter – the original winter for the past 150 years!
