St. Moritz remains an irresistible destination for the well travelled, ever since this world-class resort pioneered winter tourism over 150 years ago. Thanks to hotelier Johannes Badrutt, St. Moritz and its first hotel, the Kulm Hotel, gained recognition throughout the 19th century for their avant-garde spirit and Swiss hospitality. In 1879, the Kulm Hotel installed Switzerland's first electric light in its Grand Restaurant, further enhancing the city's avant-garde reputation.

Today, St. Moritz is still where you would go for the latest trends. St. Moritz offers the visitors to immerse in world-class art, shopping, sport and now also gourmet events. Internationally renowned brands from Cartier to Louis Vuitton align on Via Serlas, the highest luxury retail street in the world. Gem and watch enthusiasts will discover an astonishing offer of high-profile names like Swiss Gübelin Jewellery that offers sustainable fine jewellery. Art's new mecca is the World-leading contemporary and modern art gallery Hauser & Wirth, which occupies three floors in Palace Galerie, a building owned by Badrutt’s Palace Hotel-another legendary hotel.

St. Moritz has long been an enclave of creativity. The skiing, shopping or even playing snow polo at 1,856m above sea level has a new dimension with the resort's culinary highlight since 1994, the St. Moritz Gourmet Festival, which has equally developed into an international event over the years bringing together some of the best Chefs from all corners of the world. The 29th edition of the St. Moritz Gourmet Festival was launched on January 20 2023 with the Porsche Grand Opening at the "Grand Hotel des Bains Kempinski" in St. Moritz.
