Switzerland is one of the 22 countries (or I would say 23 over-all including my second home Germany)  I visited last 2013. It was so far the most traveled year I had during my existence on planet earth. I am wondering if it will happen again? As of now, I had visited 6 countries and many cities especially in Asia and Europe.

St. Moritz is one of the places I experienced in Switzerland last summer 2013. During that time, we took the Bernina Express from Tirano, Italy to Pontresina, a municipality in the district of Maloja in the canton of Graubünden in Switzerland. From there, we took the bus going to St. Moritz.

If you haven’t been to St. Moritz, it a resort town in the Engadine valley in Switzerland. It is a popular destination of the upper class and international Jet Set, as well as one of the most expensive ski resorts in the world. How lucky I am to visit this place.  Sad to hear that this old lady who were with us during that group trip,  was  very disappointed  for some reasons when we were there.  I guess, it was due to a lot of walking and if you are already in the age when health is not that good anymore, you will not surely enjoy traveling.

We had a limited time during that visit in St. Moritz.  I left my friend who was with me together with her husband and 5 year old son. I decided to go around the town alone so I can maximize my time for sightseeing.  We were only given around 2 hours to explore the area.  It is not really enough to see the place but I was happy and contented that I was able to step on this town.

Here are some of the famous attractions in St. Moritz, Switzerland;

  • The Leaning Tower, a 12th century landmark, once part of St. Mauritius Church demolished in 1890.
  • Chesa Futura, a building housing ten exclusive private apartments and built in amazing taste.
  • The Sengantini Museum is a sensational historical wonderland, built in 1908 and still ready to inspire.
  • The “Trambänkli” (tram shelter for waiting passengers) has become a veritable monument, still functioning as once a tram service stop and now a bus route.
  • St. Moritz Design Gallery is a feast for the senses, with over 35 large glass illuminated showcases and valuable posters being displayed each year.

If given the chance in the future, I still would love to visit St. Moritz especially during winter season. Cheers and happy travels  to us all!
