      About this Engadin St. Moritz Tour

      St. Moritz is called "The Top of the World." Not only has the town trademarked the phrase, it's earned it. This stylish village is near the highest summit in the Eastern Alps and has hosted the Winter Olympics twice, in 1928 and 1948. Named for the early Christian martyr, Saint Maurice, this locale was a hot spot for pilgrims seeking out its healing waters. It's now the pinnacle of high living. Watch for A-listers popping out of the opulent hotels, luxury boutiques, and restaurants that line the village streets.

      Strolling this chic town surrounded by epic mountain panoramas, you share the thrilling sense of exclusivity in the air. Yet it was ahotelier's bet that made this swankyspot what it is today. The Kulm Hotel opened its regal doors in the heart of St. Moritz in 1856. Its founder, Johannes Badrutt, welcomed his guests, mostly from England, in the summertime. But wanting to expand his business, he made a daring wager. In 1864, he told his summer guests they could enjoy St. Moritz's sunny winter days in their shirtsleeves on his terrace. And if he was wrong, their stay would be on the house.

      Anxious to escape the cold, damp British winter,his guests returned, braving a crossing of the Julier Pass in horse-drawn sleighs. Just weeks later, the Brits sported suntans (St. Moritz enjoys over 300 days of sunshine annually), Badrutt was happy, and winter tourism was born. Our bet is you'll adore this sunny, scenic village, too.

      Move over Pisa

      The world's least-perpendicular tower may not be in Italy at all. St. Moritz's leaning tower (you'll see it opposite the Kulm Hotel) dates back to the 12th century. That makes it about the same age as Pisa's famous tower, but its tilt is greater. The St. Moritz tower, once part of an old church, leans at about 5.5 degrees. After restoration was completed in 2001, Pisa's tower leans only about 3.9 degrees. It can't angle for top spot now.
