"We have had the fortune of visiting St. Moritz many times and admit that if you arrive there for the first time, imagining to find a typical tranquil Alpine village, of wooden and stone chalets with Engadin façades, you may be in for a surprise / a little disappointed. St. Moritz is a world in itself, multi-million franc modern constructions, residential complexes of varying heights, bars, clubs, high end shops and luxury hotels.

 

But this is also part of the allure of St. Moritz : strolling in the center you perceive an exclusive air about this place, it has been a meeting place for the jet set for over 150 years."

SEGANTINI MUSEUM HOUSE IN ST. MORITZ

 

Visit the collection of the painter of Engadin landscape is an other good reason for a day in St. Moritz.

 

Giovanni Segantini (1858–1899) is regarded as an important artist of Realistic Symbolism and was a great reviver of Alpine painting at the end of the 19th century. In 1894, the stateless artist moved from Savognin to Maloja in the Engadin. Segantini died unexpectedly on the Schafberg, high above Pontresina, while working on the middle section of his Alpine Triptych,  Life – Nature – Death.

In 1908, the Segantini Museum was built in St. Moritz in honour of the artist; today it houses the most comprehensive collection of works by Segantini in the world
