The property is within easy reach of public transport (around 100 meters from the St. Moritz Bad bus stop), meaning that once you’re there you don’t need to rely on a car for daily shopping or to take advantage of the many local leisure activities available.
The large living room looks out on to a balcony, which enjoys panoramic views of Lake St. Moritz and the fascinating nearby mountain landscape.
An individual cellar storage area is provided in the basement. There is also a communal laundry room, as well as a shared bicycle and ski storage room for the use of all building residents
A lift connects all residential floors and the basement, ensuring unhindered wheelchair access throughout the apartment, as well as to all entrances and basement areas.
The residents’ association is planning the construction of a garage building on a slope adjacent to the site. Parking spaces and areas in the garage will be available and can be applied for separately.
The scenic views of Lake St. Moritz from the apartment and its balcony are especially noteworthy.
St. Moritz is one of the lowest taxed communities in Canton Grisons. The current community tax rate for legal residents is 60% of the basic cantonal tax.
St Moritz is not simply a tourist destination. The village in the Upper Engadin is the birthplace of Alpine winter tourism (1864) and the venue for two Winter Olympics. However, it owes its original significance to its mineral springs. These have been famous for more than 3,000 years and led to St. Moritz becoming one of the earliest summer spa destinations.
Thanks to its 1,856-meter elevation in the Upper Engadin, St.Moritz enjoys significantly more days of sunshine than average. This was why the sun was adopted as the official symbol for the village in 1930. It was the first official symbol to be protected by law. St. Moritz has often taken a pioneering role: in 1878, at Christmas, it lit the first electric light; it hosted the very first golf tournament in the Alps in 1889, and in 1935 it opened Switzerland’s first ski lift.
Visitors from around the world appreciate the modern Alpine lifestyle, which is defined by its top-class cuisine – even near the pistes, gourmet dreams can be fulfilled. Then there are the hotels that set the standard in every category and world-renowned events. Via Serlas guarantees a shoppers’ paradise on a compact scale, yet just around the corner, you can still find local specialities such as the famous Engadiner Nusstorte, a sweet pie made with walnuts.
Places of interest, such as the leaning tower – a remnant of the Mauritius church from 1500 – or the Segantini Museum offer a gentle diversion from all the luxury and jet-set.
One hundred and fifty-four years ago, the hotelier Johannes Badrutt made a bold wager with his English summer-guests: he bet them that there would be warm Engadin sunshine in the middle of winter. He won and St. Moritz grew to become one of the brightest winter sport destinations in the world.
Today, winter sports enthusiasts visiting the area can enjoy 350 kilometres of pistes, all equipped with the very latest infrastructure. The local mountain Corviglia is home to the steepest starting slope in Switzerland, a dizzying 100 percent incline on the Piz Nair escarpment. On the Cresta Run, tobogganists can race down the icy track. The bobsleigh run is the oldest natural ice facility in the world. Winter walkers can enjoy hundred and fifty kilometres of footpaths, while cross-country skiers can explore a 200-kilometer network of routes. The snowboarders’ fun park, curling and climbing are just some of the other winter sports on offer.
Alongside the traditional pursuits of walking and mountain-biking, visitors can try their hand at sailing, rowing, windsurfing, kiting, tennis, mini-golf or horse riding. The Ludains ice rink is open to skaters throughout the summer, while golfers will find an alpine golfing paradise, with four courses to choose from. A romantic coach ride around the lake, through the Stazer forest or glittering St. Moritz is among the highlights of any visit to St. Moritz. Upper Engadin also has plenty to offer climbers and alpinists, with 17 climbing parks of varying difficulty levels rounding off the local attractions.
The extravagant alpine metropolis of St. Moritz is one of the world’s best-known holiday destinations. However, the sparkling Engadin village has more to offer than pistes and grand hotels. There are also mineral springs, turquoise mountain lakes and luxury spas. In other words, the ultimate in wellness is a sensory feast you can enjoy here all year round.
How about bathing holidays in St. Moritz? Whether you are a family, jetsetter or someone in search of relaxation, the classic Engadin holiday experience is as diverse as it is good for you. “Living water” is known as Ovaerva in the local Rheto-romance language, and the St. Moritz indoor pool, spa and sports centre of the same name is an architectural landmark in the village. It offers swimming and diving pools, an outdoor pool with mountain views, 190 metres of slides, as well as the famous “Gut Training”.
If you are looking for medically supervised recuperation, the St Moritz medicinal spa next door to Ovaerva is the ideal destination. Here the healing waters of the St. Moritz springs have been bubbling up from the deep for more than 3,000 years. You can drink the healing mineral water for free in the newly renovated Paracelsus Forum. Audio-guided commentary stations allow you to hear the fascinating history of the St. Moritz healing springs.
Relaxation for the body and soul is not only found in Ovaerva, but it is also luxuriously celebrated in the numerous 5-star hotels – where salt-water baths, treatments and massages are all on offer. Off-grid swimming and diving can also, naturally, be enjoyed at the countless swimming lakes surrounding St. Moritz. The famous Lej da Staz (Lake of Staz), set in a forest glade between St. Moritz and Pontresina, is reminiscent of summer holidays in years gone by.
