Mountaintop Magic at the Kulm Hotel In St. Moritz


Voted Switzerland’s No. 1 Luxury Resort Hotel for 2020, the legendary Kulm Hotel St. Moritz in Switzerland is where winter tourism first began. With its prime location 1,856 m above sea level, the Kulm Hotel offers the very best views of Lake St. Moritz.  The historic hotel is situated in the heart of the village and indulges guests with the tradition of Swiss hospitality that goes back over 160 years, while enjoying modern comforts at a 5-star superior level.

The Kulm Hotel St. Moritz is located in the heart of St. Moritz Dorf (upper village). You can reach it via the excellent road network, by Rhaetian Railway or by air. A winter holiday at the Kulm Hotel is a whirlwind experience of luxury, comfort, spoils, culinary delights, and an insider’s view into the incomparable lifestyle of St. Moritz in high season.

Every view from the hotel offers the most stunning scenery. Twenty-nine peaks over 13,000 feet ring the property, including the infamous Matterhorn. All of the divinely renovated Engadine style rooms have mountain names and numbers which coincide with the altitude of their namesake mountains.

Little luxuries like sinking in to freshly pressed pure linen sheets after an afternoon at the spa and fresh flowers in your room are what make your stay here so special.

The famous White Turf Horse Races which take place on the frozen lake at the base of the Kulm Hotel is the most glamorous social event of the winter season. A unique, exclusive, top-class event with exciting horse-racing, gourmet dining, live music, and art exhibitions, all taking place in winter sunshine on the frozen lake. This spectacular event is not only just for the jet set, it’s also an annual event where race-horse owners, trainers and jockeys from all over the world come to compete.

“Visitors come to the Engadine following the call of the mountains; they are attracted by the natural beauty and unique light that are characteristic of this region. In St. Moritz you can really leave everything behind and enjoy discovering this beautiful Alpine region,”  shares hotel director Heinz E. Hunkeler.

The Kulm Spa offers a three-pillar wellness concept that unites relaxation, detoxification and regeneration. Deceleration for body and mind is achieved while finding your inner balance.
