Grand Hotel Kronenhof Pontresina

The Grande Dame of the Engadin
Welcoming guests since 1848

Historic architecture that dates from 1848, elegant light-filled rooms and suites, one of the finest spa facilities in the world and a superb location in the heart of the Swiss Alps – this unique mix of the magic of times long past, modern comfort, and the beautiful natural world all around is what makes the Grand Hotel Kronenhof so special and unique. After a comprehensive renovation in 2007, this landmark neo-baroque building that is an alpine architectural treasure is now also one of the world’s top luxury and wellness hotels.

Your host

In the daytime, when the sunlight caresses the stucco, and brings a glow to the original ceiling frescoes and the pine panelling of our house, we see the splendours of the past coming to life once again. When soft piano music fills the air in the evening, and we hear lively conversations interrupted by the crackling of an open fire, time often seems to stand still.

You only have to reach out: happiness is within your grasp, for here, the main actress is and shall remain – nature herself. She has all the space she needs to thrive and grants her visitors endless possibilities to enjoy her beauty. In the meantime, we take good care of your well-being with commitment and warmth.

We are happy to welcome you as our guests.

The mountaineering village of Pontresina

Pontresina is situated in a wind-sheltered side valley at 1,805 metres above sea level and a mere 10 minutes away from glamorous St. Moritz. The village is very close to the Bernina Massif with the two most famous peaks of the Engadin: Piz Palü and Piz Bernina. Standing at 4,049 m, the Bernina is the highest peak in the Eastern Alps. The region offers visitors action and variety as it also offers peace and quiet. Guests first arriving at the historic mountaineering village are immediately captivated with the village itself. The charm of the traditional Engadin houses and the elegance of the Belle Époque hotels quickly transport you to a more tranquil former age.
