Pictorial art admirers should necessarily visit the Mili Weber Museum. The cultural establishment is devoted to life and creative work of an outstanding painter and writer. The collection of the museum counts hundreds of pictures, genuine sketch works and original drawing by the famous artist. The same interesting and engaging is the Giovanni Segantini museum, which collection commemorates a prominent Italian painter. Giovanni Segantini spent the last years of his life in St. Moritz leaving his priceless art masterpieces as a keepsake to the old town.
Among historical landmarks and sights of the resort tourists will discover the Nietzsche summer house which is set in a scenic location named Sils Maria. This was exactly the place where Nitzsche worked on his creation “Thus Spoke Zarathustra”. Tourists giving preference to on foot exploration of historical sites and landmarks should necessarily visit an age-old farmhouse named Chesa Veglia. The house was constructed in the 17th century. Today the building hosts a popular restaurant. One of the oldest buildings located on the territory of the town is the Slanting Tower monument aged more than eight hundred years. The ancient tower is a remaining part of the St. Mauritius Church which was established in the middle of the 12th century. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

The resort town also offers some weird locations and landmarks. The Druid Stone is considered to be one of those weird sites of the town. It is located not far from one of the bobsleigh tracks, and looks like nothing else but a Celtic culture artifact. Many centuries ago various religious ceremonies of first folks of the area took place there. Railway tours are of extreme popularity among foreign guests of the resort. The trains run though the most beautiful and scenic nature areas of the destination and through the most remarkable historical objects of tourist attraction. Tourists who will lack local sites and landmarks will like to visit neighboring cities as they are as well feature a vast choice of cultural sites and objects of tourist attraction.
St Moritz One of the most significant natural attractions of St. Moritz is the Devil’s Mountain (Diavolezza). This place appeals to lovers of alpine skiing and those who wish to get aesthetic pleasure. The peak is visible from almost anywhere in the city. Many tourists visit St. Moritz just for the sake of these magnificent views. Another attraction is the mountain Muottas Muragl, which is an excellent viewing point. Another beautiful peak — Piz Nair — is also worth mentioning.

The trail named Heidi’s Flower is perfect for hiking. Usually, it is called by the Italian version of the name – Sentiero dei Fiori di Heidi, or by the German one – Heidi’s Blumenweg. On the territory of the valley, there are more than two hundred different alpine plants, and each of them is incredibly fragrant and beautiful. Therefore, it is a place of particular interest for botany fans. The scenic path ends at Heidi’s hut, which is surrounded by a pastoral atmosphere. Stunning wooden sculptural compositions can be found along the way. The Schellen Ursli Path is another famous trail that leads to the hut. It is no less remarkable for those who want to enjoy the picturesque open spaces of the city.
St. Moritz St. Moritz can boast of the fact that on its territory there is an elegant sample of modern architecture. We are referring to the Chesa Futura, a structure in the biotech style. The peculiarity of this building is that it combines ancient canons with modern technologies of construction. Wood – the most ancient building material – was used to create its bizarre contemporary form. This is a sort of union of modernity and antiquity, technology and nature. It is noteworthy, that the wooden blocks of the building are changing their color under the influence of weather conditions and time. It gives an impression that the construction “grows old” together with tree and foliage but does not have an effect on its functionality.
1. The skiing season on the resort starts in November. Some of the slopes and runs get well preserved till the beginning of May. Tourists may use a convenient system of elevators cruising … Open
In the resort city and its surroundings there are several excellent religious sites. Among them, the Burial Church of Santa Maria is one worthy of being highlighted. It is located in the town named Pontresina. Despite its small size, the shrine is attractive for its vastness and its equally gorgeous interior decoration. Nearby there is one more historic monument which is a worthy place to visit. It is the Burgturm Spaniola tower. The wonderful Alpin Museum is also situated here in Pontresina. It offers an exhibition which covers the traditional way of life of the local people over the centuries and shows their crafts. Among other cultural attractions, galleries Hauser & Wirth and Berry Museum should be mentioned. Both of them are amazing places for art lovers.
