St. Moritz Travel: Kangaroos and Champagne


Kangaroo and Champagne? Get Yours in St. Moritz

Welcome to the most glamorous, posh, exclusive and expensive winter resort town in the world.


If you belong to the jet-set millionaire clique then you’ve probably already been to St. Moritz–or at least heard a lot about it from your jet-set friends. If not, I can tell you that, in a nutshell, St. Moritz is the most glamorous, posh, exclusive, and expensive winter resort town in the world. The history of winter tourism and deluxe hotels in St. Moritz can be traced to the opening of the Kulm Hotel in 1856. It was Johannes Badrutt, the proprietor of the Kulm –the first luxury hotel in St. Moritz– who started convincing his wealthy friends and guests, who loved St. Moritz in the summer, to make the journey in the winter too.

St. Moritz is gorgeous any time of year

No matter what sport you’re into, you can partake in St. Moritz

As the summer season wound to a close in 1864, Badrutt was singing the praises of the sunny and dry winter weather in St. Moritz to his remaining guests. He invited them back to his hotel that winter, so they could experience it for themselves, promising that if they still weren’t convinced, he’d cover their travel expenses. His independently wealthy patrons loved the Alps in the winter so much so that they stayed all season — and brought winter sports from around the world with them. As the first ever Alpine winter tourists, they helped to define a whole new experience: the white winter holiday. From then on, St. Moritz has cemented its position on the private jet set’s winter holiday circuit.

The Kulm Hotel is at the center of St. Moritz, both physically and historically

St. Moritz is founded on pure luxury

We left our PJ at home (jk) and drove to St. Moritz, nestled on the sunny side of the Swiss Alps, from Lugano, in southern Switzerland. It was a stunningly beautiful drive, along narrow and windy roads that took us through villages that look like they haven’t changed in a century, and up the sides of mountains. If you fly into Zurich, the easiest way to get here is via train (it takes three and a half hours), since once you’re here everything is walking distance. If you do decide to drive, make sure that the weather is mild, since arriving into St. Moritz in snowy weather can be challenging–to say the least.

My first trip to St. Moritz was over a decade ago and we arrived on a typical snowy winter night, saddled with a fog of snow so thick that it prevented us from seeing further than a meter in front of the car (just to make the trip a bit more interesting). The mountain road you take to St. Moritz is unusually windy and terrifying narrow–not a single mile of it is straight (or easy to drive on, for that matter). If you manage to climb up safely with the right car and tires, the reward is well worth it the next morning.

If you can manage to get there, expect to pay four times as much as you would anywhere else – and that’s if you don’t go shopping!

Pretty, spoiled women abound

Imagine waking up in Switzerland surrounded by a splendid circus of purely white mountains and three frozen lakes… The sensation of being at the top of the world starts reaching you, and it won’t stop throughout your stay. St. Moritz is not the average ski resort town, as you will quickly understand. The rules here are the same as the ones on Rodeo Drive, 5th Avenue or Via Montenapoleone in Milan. Most of the buildings are fairly modern and the streets look more like the top shopping streets found in the fashion capitals of the world than a typically charming Swiss village.

Furs and champagne are the staples

A major difference between St. Moritz and any other town in the world is that there are no middle-class people on the streets here. Every person you pass is wearing only the very most expensive designer clothing and jewelry — and showing it all off to the best of their ability. Not one person in St. Moritz looks like they have any less than an eight-digit yearly income (or yearly inheritance!); they’ll need it to be able to afford the incredibly steep prices they’ll be paying in the hotels and restaurants. Think $50 for a personal-sized pizza and $45 veggie burgers. Yeah. It’s like that. The most common events in St. Moritz are ski competitions (and there are plenty of those) and jet-set champagne parties with celebrities for the opening of the latest Prada shop (where prices are at least 20% higher than in New York)!

In fact, it’s always been like that. Ever since its inception as a luxury ski resort town, it’s been a must-visit year-round destination for the wealthy. Even way back in 1878, despite its remote location, the wealthy owner of the Kulm Hotel made sure that his Grand Restaurant became the first place in Switzerland to have electric lights. Not long after, St. Moritz became home to the first ski school and the first electric tram in Switzerland.

Beautiful vistas are par for the course in St. Moritz

Despite being innovative at the time, the town, and especially the Kulm, prides itself on being traditional. Some say it’s stuck in the past, while others love that they can come back year after year knowing precisely what to expect. In fact, many of the Kulm’s most faithful patrons have been loyal guests every winter for the past 50 years. A perfect example is the method in which the Kulm makes up their beds. At first, I thought our bed hadn’t been made up at all, but after speaking with management I learned that the traditional way to make a bed is to have two separate small beds (with separate sheets and separate duvets) pushed together, so that the couple could separate them at will. If you like cuddling, make sure to ask them, in advance, to make the bed up American-style.

Our suite at The Kulm Hotel was super comfortable, and had stunning mountain views

Calie had lots of places to hang out in our large suite at The Kulm Hotel

With one large blanket, and everything else divided down the middle, the beds at the Kulm are made up the traditional way — for non-cuddlers.

The rooms at the Kulm vary greatly in style. Where I found the some of the rooms to have a dated feel, many of their guests would disagree. I absolutely loved the feel of our newly-renovated suite. The soft plaid and herringbone textiles and unfinished wood felt cosy and luxurious, and I’d gladly make that my new Swiss home if it wouldn’t drain my bank account at an alarming rate.

The fur coat competitions are rampant

Walking around for the first time in the village is great if you are an international jet-set shopper; a competition is on 24 hours a day–but it’s not a sports one. It’s only open for women actually. It is the fur coat competition. Try to imagine a place where people only wear the most beautiful and rare fur coats and hats… and nobody really cares about animal rights. This is the unfortunate reality of St Moritz.

The selection in the shops is only the best of the best (or, rather, the most expensive). Only the most expensive items are for sale here… No average watches or necklaces in the windows, no wool sweaters — only cashmere, of course, Darhhhing… No average anything!

A postcard I bought while in St. Moritz

The official symbol of St. Moritz is a pink pig with a penny in it’s mouth… Pretty fitting if you ask me!

Even the restaurant menus are stunning. There’s not much for an animal-loving vegan like myself, but for the truly hedonistic there’s a plethora of exotic options, including a wide array of flesh from animals such as kangaroo, crocodile, ostrich, deer and even horse meat (prepared in a variety of ways).

Enjoying a vegan meal at once of The Kulm’s several restaurants. Make sure to let them know ahead of time if you have any dietary restrictions.

An afternoon of stuffing yourself with kangaroo meat and champagne not your flavor? Try skiing or golfing. While the slopes are something of a fashion show, and most runs may be on the easy side for experienced skiers (ie. “bunny slopes”), the scenery is spectacular and the lifts, food and grooming won’t disappoint. In the summer, golfing is a popular sport and the views from the courses, especially the Kulm’s golf course, are stunning.

The view from each hole of the Kulm’s golf course can’t be beat

If you don’t ski, there are plenty of other things to do. You can socialize at the non-stop outdoor party by the heated outdoor bar in front of the Hauser restaurant. You can pay through the nose for a new wardrobe, or just browse alongside men with their wives (or mistresses!) in their fur coats and long leather gloves. Or, if you have relaxation in mind, St. Moritz is home to over 25 beauty institutes and day spas – plus, each hotel has their own spa. However, there’s only one small bookstore in St. Moritz (and half of it is an overpriced souvenir shop). So don’t forget your copy of The Beautiful and the Damned–because you can’t buy it here!

Enjoying the spa –and the view– at The Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz

At the spa at the Kulm Hotel

The pool and spa at Kulm Hotel is absolutely to die for. With a wall of windows, and a large heated outdoor pool area, you can swim with mountains as a backdrop. It is truly extraordinary! When you’re done lounging in your Missoni or Chanel swimsuit whilst sipping champagne, grab a cocktail in the lobby bar and gaze through the large lobby windows, where you can watch people playing polo on the frozen lake.

At one of many lobby bar areas in the Kulm Hotel. Each has a different decor style and vibe.

At night, the only place to go is the appropriately named ‘The Kings’ night club at Badrutt’s Palace. This is where all the jet-setter’s go to party it up until the wee hours in the morning (no, not 2 am–try 6 am). It is quite possibly the chicest (or at least the most expensive) nightclub in the world!

Polo on the ice, a common pastime

Skiing, in designer duds, of course

While St. Moritz started out as a summer playground for the welathy set in London, nowadays the biggest population of ‘visitors’ here would have to be the Italians. Italians here seem to really enjoy life; eating, drinking, partying and girl-chasing are among their favorite hobbies. They invite each other to their mountain chateaus for huge buffet dinners. Amazing pasta, wine and cigars, elegant men and surprisingly overdressed women (in platform heels that make you wonder how they manage to get around in the snow without falling twenty times) abound. Everybody is smiling and pleasant, especially when you are from abroad, as Italians love ‘international people’. It is a known rule here that if you want to throw a successful party you can’t only have Italian friends attend – you need as many ‘international people’ as possible. So chic!

St. Moritz is beautiful in the summer, too

With this much luxury in one place, you really don’t have to worry about things to do and ways to be pampered. That is, after all, what St. Moritz was built on.

    Interesting destination… 😍🚡

  13. Jeni Morgan

    I think St. Moritz has a dynamic culture and beautiful heritage!

  14. Frederica Pellman

    A lot of people hate the rich because…well, they are rich. But I think it’s fun to read about how the other half lives, and at this stage of the game it does not inspire any envy. They’re having a good time, and that’s not hard to do in a place like St. Moritz. I’m having a good time right here in Southampton, which is not exactly third-world country either. It’s all good, as long as we all remember to care about and do something for others who don’t have it so good. Good to know that you could put your personal feelings about animals – not so easy with all those fur coats and crocodile burgers – and be in the moment to enjoy the spectacular surroundings. What makes St. Moritz so attractive to the richest folk in the world is its natural beauty, and that is all around all of us if we open our eyes. Hard to beat Central Park in spring and it’s free!!!!

  15. Norisna

    Wow!!! Probably people who frequently visit this place want to be eternal! It is paradise. Without any doubt everybody wants to visit there. I will try. Thank you Hilary for the beautiful article and beautiful photos.

  16. Eloisa Clay

    Entertaining read! I’m curious about this, when you travel, do you concentrate on what to post on blog? Or the thoughts just come naturally when you start writing?

  18. George Sumanta

    Thank you so much for sharing your St. Moritz experience. It may not have told me everything but indeed gave me a lot of insights that I can use to convince my boyfriend to book a vacation!

  19. Britni Baynes

    I’m learning from your travel articles!!! Traveling is one of the best learning experiences in life. We not only discover the world but also discover ourselves.

  20. Jeweli Prater

    I stayed at the Kulm earlier this year. The Kulm hotel is one of the finest traditional hotels in the world. The rooms and their views are exceptional. The staff are the same year after year, whose attention to detail and memory of previous years of guests preferences, speaks of the extraordinary attention to detail and guest experience is 2nd to none. The Sunny Bar is our favourite…

  21. Lela House

    I want to experience this-a picturesque ride through spectacular mountains, lakes, glaciers and bridges.

  22. Grace Stirling

    The beauty of St. Moritz is indescribable. Walking in the Swiss Alps is a dream, This is going on my must see places list. The mountains make a perfect spot for a picnic in summer. Someday I’ll get there.

  23. Helen Dark

    There is a bunch majestic places in your site that I am intrigued to visit, including this. Thanks for recommending them. Switzerland is beautiful, gorgeous and stunning. Switzerland is a wonderful place to live. This makes me want to drop everything and go to St. Moritz. 😀


  24. Louise Stone

    What gorgeous things mountains are – so beautiful. St. Moritz is a must visit in a good weather. Amazing scenery with snow covered mountains, skiers of all ages gliding down powdery slopes. I want to see all of its glory. Clear and sunny day will surely make a great trip. Nice post. 🙂

  25. Kimberly Vigil

    Gorgeous pictures. St. Moritz was simply breathtaking where you can also see ranges of snowy mountains. What could be more relaxing than being on top with amazing view and drinking cappuccino in a cafe. It is indeed enjoyable seeing blue sky and fresh snow. Thanks for this excellent post!

  26. Sasha Rosswell

    Never visited myself, but I know that Badrutt’s Palace is one of the leading hotels of the world, and I can see why. All these photos are fascinating. Thank you for the fun read. 🙂

  27. Kim Hartford

    I said OMG out loud few times while reading this article. I’m not even a fan of winter, but I’m absolutely 100% fascinated by St Moritz, from the way you described it. Thanks so much for this beautiful post! xo

  28. Amelia Beckons

    Loving the pics and the post! Heard so much about St.Moritz, but never got to visit. I have a feeling I would totally fall in love with it there, once I visited. 🙂

  29. Evelyn Sandler

    Hello, Hilary. 🙂 Such lovely pictures and a great article. Having lived my whole life near several ski stations, winter sports is something that I would’ve loved doing if I had been able to. What a surreal place! It sounds heavenly and so much fun!

  30. Molly Twain

    Thanks for the tips, beautiful pictures and helpful information. I am headed there this May, I can’t wait. I just hope the weather will be merciful to me. 🙂

  31. Susanna Milton

    It sounds and looks amazing, Hilary. It’s going on my list of places to visit. Not quite as long as the list of books to be read but it’s growing, thanks to your travel guides. 🙂

  32. Matilda Parker

    What an entertaining and informative read. Love this article. Would really like to visit St Moritz although it looks like it’s a little out of the way. 🙂

  33. Very nicely written. I always think of movie stars, glamour and sky high prices when I think of St.Moritz. Off season does sound appealing. Beautiful. Soooo lovely. I want to go there right now!!

  34. Lena Dzeko

    Incredible scenery, beautiful pictures, and amazing article, Hilary! Too bad the buildings are a little overdone for my taste, but glad you still recommend it as an amazing place to visit. I hope to visit someday in the future!

  35. Sonja Fallow

    ’ve always thought of St. Moritz as a ski resort. Nice to see that it’s available for out of season visits too. Somehow Badrutt’s Palace hotel in the photo looks very Chinese to me. I think it is because of the colors (green roof, red and white house body) Somehow gaudy 19th century is more appealing than gaudy 20th century. That is just so romantic!

    • Jae Medina

      Yes, very Belle Epoque – such a romantic location! Certainly looks stunning! It’s got to be a nice place to spend a night waiting for the Glacier Express, though. 🙂

  36. Lin Del Rey

    The Badrutt’s Palace… Extremely gorgeous and posh hotel! Seems to fit the St Moritz area so well. It’s quite a unique architecture. It’s got a bit of a “wow” factor for me. I really really admire historical buildings like this. I hope to visit one day!

  37. Elin Hanks

    I’ve been to Switzerland a few times but haven’t been to St.Moritz yet. But it’s on my to-visit list. And seeing about it on Urbanette makes me want to visit sooner that I planned.

  38. The Lake of San Murezzano is fantastic. You see around it very high mountains that reflect themself over the lake, or so it appears in the pictures… And in the background there is the town of Saint Moritz?? Wow! Just beautiful! Imagine walking all around that beautiful lake. You can fishing and relax under the sun if you visited during off season!! And in the winter you can ski, snowboard and so many other winter activities! I REALLY want to book a flight NOW!

  39. Sibel Jenkinson

    Everyone has heard of St Moritz – playground of the rich and famous and site of the Winter Olympics. St Moritz is a small town in the Engledine area of southeast Switzerland on the banks of a lake. I was there in the summer of 2011 with my family. But it was off season, and our budget wasn’t big enough back then to afford a stay at the Badrutt’s Palace. I would love to visit again!

  40. Pamela Sanabria

    Beautiful ski resort town, but I hear from my Swiss friends that it’s still so beautiful in every season, especially spring! The Badrutt’s Palace seem to be the eye candy of the town. And Lake St Morits is really a beautiful lake. People must enjoy cross-country skiing there. 🙂

  41. Delilah Peyton

    I’m not a fan of snow and winter. So I’d like to visit in summer. A walk along the lake would definitly t be he best experience you can have in St. Moritz for me. The panorama is amazing and I’d also like to swim in the lake if it’s allowed. 🙂

  42. Kaitlyn Barrett

    Proper dream winter vacation! I love that hotel. It looks absolutely stunning. Sure, it’s rather pricey compared to other hotels in the area, but I believe the service and the facilities they provide is worth it. Or so I’ve heard. 🙂

  43. Helena Stevens

    I’m absolutely stunned by how beautiful the whole resort town is! I’m not passionate about skiing, but this place is so ideal for a winter get away.

    • Camila Hilhorst

      Yep! I don’t know the first thing about skiing but seeing these pics and reading the article made me want to pay a visit and learn how to ski. Not kidding!

  44. Shannon Bradley

    Stunning hotel! I know I can’t afford to stay at the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, but that will not keep me from visiting St Moritz. And just because I can’t afford to stay there it doesn’t mean I can’t have a fancy lunch or dinner at their prestigious restaurant, a few cheeky cocktails at the bar, or a me day at that incredible spa! Just becauseI can’t afford the full package, it doesn’t mean I will not get whatever I can afford. 🙂

  45. Esther Earl Harris

    This place sounds amazing! It was fun reading your experiences in St. Moritz. It made me sit and think what were the trips that changed me. I must say I have had some wonderful experiences along the way. One thing that stands out for me is where I met so many groups of people from different parts of the world. I enjoyed hearing everyone speaking their own language and about their country. We also can learn and try something new.

  46. Kimberley Foulkes

    Mere words can not explain how utterly gorgeous that hotel is! What a magnificient experience it should be for those who visit. The location is simply stunning. The building looks like a fairy tale castle. Beautiful mountain view perfectly framed within the large windows. Very striking and gives such a great ambience. I would absolutely LOVE to go there oneday!

  47. Melissa Princeton

    Thanks for this wonderful article. Those photos and the way you described the pace really amazed me. The view over the lake is magnificent. It must be incredible when the full snows are in. 🙂

  48. Synonymous with glitz and glamour. Badrutt’s seem to be an extremely well run property in the center of St Moritz! I would expect nothing less than first class service and limitless indulgence in this place that manages so well to preserve it’s historical inheritance. 🙂

  49. Olivia Peterson

    Although expensive I am really thinking of booking a 3 day weekend there for the Valentine’s day. The palace looks very comfortable. It seems like a heart warming hotel with an amazing indoor and outdoor pool! Why shouldn’t I spend some extra on such luxury?! After all we won’t live a second life! Make every day count 🙂

  50. Sydney Nowak

    I am sure that the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel is a 5 star hotel! I would have given this place an excellent rating just for it’s breathtaking view even though I have never been there! History, beauty, luxury and class at their best. 🙂

  51. Celine Carter

    It’s hard to believe a place like this actually exists in real life! I’ve never seen such a luxrious place in my life. Who wouldn’t want to go there? I know I do, and I hope I will. Too expensive for my income, but one can dream, right? 😉 🙂

  52. Monica CONOVER

    St. Moritz is my idea of heaven! From what I see and read in this article I can tell that it’s beyond first class, but it’s royalty! Even just for two nights, I WILL stay there sometine in the future! Even if it costs me not to go on a vacation for two years, I’ll save up enough money to afford a few days of royalty at the Badrutt’s Palace! 🙂

  53. Danielle Wilson

    My goodness… What a fabulous place! I can’t imagine a human being who wouldn’t LOVE to spend time there!

    Seeing things like this makes me question the choices I made in life. Such as; what did I do so wrong that I can’t afford this? lol

    • I can relate to that! But in my case, seeing posts like this one, helps me motivate to work harder and do better. There’s no use in beating yourself up about it. It’s not going to help you live a better life. But if you work hard enough, there’s a good chance you can make it too 🙂

  54. It looks like a very charming hotel! That jacuzzi alone is just to die for! Some people are EXTREMELY LUCKY that they can afford such a lifestyle. I so envy them.

  55. Christina Norelli

    How refreshing to see an article about such a fancy place! I had a work event in St Moritz, while my parents were visiting from Trinidad. So we stayed the weekend and explored town and did fun activities at the hotel facilities. It was a weekend I’ll never forget. 🙂

  56. Debbie Jones

    A total champagne climate, and sophisticated clientele. I would really love to visit one day. Definitely on my bucket list. 🙂 Thanks for the helpful information!

  57. Lucretia Asher

    If it’s good enough for Alfred Hitchcock, Brigitte Bardot and Gunter Sachs, Charlie Chaplin, Henry Ford, Greta Garbo, the Royal Family, the Kennedy family and the Shah of Persia, it has got to be good enough for everybody else! So much elegance, luxury and class this place has got to offer! It is an embodiment of style, tradition and quality. 🙂

  58. Dana Rosatti

    Fabulous photos and great information. Looks like it’s impossible not to have a great time there.

    My parents did some honeymooning in Switzerland decades ago and got lost on a mountain road and were scolded by a local snow plow driver for being in on the road out of season.

    It has always been on my list of places to see.

  59. I just love the pictures in this post, Hilary!
    This article is making me dream about going back to Switzerland in the future. When I went to Switzerland in 2007, I spent three days in Zurich and everything that I saw was gray and rainy!

  60. Heather Strobel

    A want to ride that single cable car that will surely take me to one of the most amazing views on earth! 🙂

  61. Hazel Collins

    Gorgeous pictures! And such a diversity. I’ve seen mountains before, but nothing like any of these. This mountain has one of the prettiest views i have ever seen. I would love to witness its nice view of the glaciers and surrounding peaks with my own eyes. Interesting post, thanks.

  62. Merry Robinson

    Wow brilliant pictures. Some of these places look incredible! 🙂

  63. Jenny Garett

    You’ve added another intriguing place for me to visit. thanks for recommending this. The view is breathtaking and you can really enjoy it if the weather is nice as well. St. Moritz sounds spectacularly awe-inspiring. I hope to visit St. Moritz , but it would be a goal to reach this destination.

  64. Rosemary Robles

    So many fascinating places. Gosh, I haven’t been to this place. If given a chance to visit St. Moritz, I will surely enjoy and take lots of pictures. Agree! This place should be on everyone’s bucket lists. Thanks for this excellent post! 😀

  65. Elsie Spurlock

    Majestic. That’s the word I could describe St. Moritz. Thousand hearings are not worth one seeing. I love those places where you feel you are nothing, St. Moritz is one of those. Time to update my bucket list, perhaps! 🙂

  66. Melissa Smith

    Magnificent views! I’d visit during the summer! I really appreciate the way you described the St. Moritz experience— very detailed, very helpful for first time visitor like me 🙂 However, I wonder, does St. Moritz offer cheaper accommodations like those of Airbnb?! Just a thought…

  67. Cornelia Green

    Incredible! I want to see St. Moritz so bad. They said that they have one of the most spectacular cable car rides in the world. One will surely enjoy amazing scenery when they arrive at the top. I want to take a gondola and enjoy St. Moritz beautiful views. Anyway, thanks for sharing your travels!

  68. Francis Woods

    Kangaroos and champagne??!!! I’m sooo excited! How do you manage to always get those perfect shots?!

  69. This travel article is perfectly written that I have this feeling of being in the place and personally experiencing its beauty! Heard so much about St. Moritz! Hoping to visit soon!

    Loving the pics!!!

  70. Sarah Evanston

    WOW, Urbanette! You never fail to give us, your readers something new or something to think about or something to look forward to! Perfect photos! I particularly liked the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, feels like that pool will provide an unforgettable experience!

  71. Ashley Moore

    Wonderful scenery! You’ve taken really great shots. I’m sure you enjoyed your trip there and the breathtaking scenery. It would be a relaxing and refreshing experience to be on top with a glass of wine and some food while enjoying the view. I want to enjoy a less crowded time in this place. Would love to visit St Moritz and its surroundings someday. 🙂

  72. Mmmmmm… If I would have the opportunity to visit St. Moritz, I’d definitely try the day spa, visit and experience some beauty institute services 😉

    Relax… Relax… Relax…

  73. I guess the thing that excites me much about St. Moritz is seeing and mingling with people that wear only the “best designer clothing and jewelry.” It’s not really the usual type of people I get to deal with regularly!

  74. Love this article soooo much! I’m excited to be part of the “fur coat competition.” Well, don’t get me wrong, I respect animal rights and I care about it, but would really want to be part of this competition and see what others have.

  75. Courtney Watson

    Nice article! It really invited me to visit St. Moritz (though I need to prepare financial budget a bit… LOL) I can already imagine the white mountains and frozen lakes being seen through my hotel window… Hmmm… Couldn’t wait!

  76. Wow! My bad! Honestly haven’t heard of St. Moritz! But well, I learned something new today! Thanks for introducing the place 🙂 Hoping to have a vacation there… soon…

  77. St. Moritz is a beautiful ski-resort getaway! It's interesting to see how people travel in different countries and spend their leisure time at the most luxurious travel destinations in the world.
