St Moritz and the Engadine celebrate 150 years winter tourism

This winter, St Moritz and Engadine celebrate 150 years of winter tourism. It began in 1864 when Johannes Badrutt made a bet with four English guests that even in winter they would be able to enjoy the mild Engadine sunshine short-sleeved on a terrace; if not, he would reimburse their travel costs from London to St Moritz and back again. So, they came for Christmas ad stayed until Easter.

What better venue to celebrate 150 years of St Moritz than the Carlton Hotel St Moritz, which celebrated its centenary in 2013. The all-suite hotel was exclusively remodeled and refurbished by interior designer Carlo Rampazzi to provide the highest standard of comfort and a superlative use of light and space. All 60 suites look out onto the frozen lake of St. Moritz and the alpine panorama beyond. The 2014 Winter Specials at Carlton Hotel St Moritz can be accessed here.
