At the highest point of the Engadin Valley, overlooking lakes and mountains, the Kulm Hotel has been welcoming guests since 1856, among them royalty, captains of industry and Hollywood stars. A year-round resort, it is a charming blend of traditional elegance and modern comfort. All of its lovely rooms and suites offer mountain or lake views, and all provide round-the-clock pampering.

The Kulm has been called the “cradle of winter sports.” The first to promote St. Moritz as a winter destination, back in the late 19th century, the hotel played host to the winter Olympic games of 1928 and 1948, and continues to be the region’s center of sports and social activities.

Warm-weather options abound as well, from luxury golf packages at the Kulm’s own nine-hole executive course (with free green fees for guests) to tennis and hiking. Its quiet yet central location is ideally suited for business gatherings.

Spa-goers are drawn to the completely redesigned Kulm Spa St. Moritz. Set against imposing Alpine scenery, this oasis of wellness has at its core a holistic philosophy of relaxation, detoxification and regeneration of all the senses. Skiers and other sports enthusiasts will find it ideal for soothing sore muscles, and business travelers will appreciate the opportunity to unwind after a day of meetings.


Le Grand Restaurant: The Kulm Hotel’s main dining room serves formal French cuisine with a modern flair in an elegant setting.

The Pizzeria: Swiss and Italian selections are served in the cozy setting of this casual restaurant.

Chesa al Parc: On the protected sun terrace of this parkside restaurant, guests can enjoy excellent regional fare. Chesa al Parc is convenient to the hotel’s ice skating rink, curling rink and tennis courts.

Miles Davis Lounge: A place for connoisseurs and music lovers. Enjoy the finest drinks and cigars, as well as special jazz concerts throughout the year, with a magnificent view over St. Moritz.

the K: This cozy and intimate gourmet restaurant’s menu was immediately awarded 15 points GaultMillau. As a special highlight of the K, paintings from famous contemporary artists are continuously on display.

Sunny Bar and Restaurant NITO: After a day of winter racing, victory honors are celebrated at the Sunny Bar. The sun terrace is open in fair weather – just the place to partake of a leisurely lunch. A lively history stands in fascinating contrast to the venue’s modernistic interior. Closed Summer / Winter open daily from noon to 2 pm.

Dracula Club:The Dracula Club is a social institution in St. Moritz. Founded by original Dracula Gunter Sachs, the club is the hot spot in St. Moritz since its opening in 1974. Located on the premises of the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz, today the club is led by Rolf Sachs, son of Gunter Sachs.  A great opportunity to get inside the private club is during the public Festival da Jazz in the summer. An intimate atmosphere is guaranteed because of its modest capacity of 150.

Bob Restaurant: At a 10 minute walking distance from the hotel, the Bob Restaurant is situated right in the starting gate building for the St. Moritz-Celerina Olympic bobsleigh run – on the grounds of the Kulm Hotel. You can enjoy light or classic lunches in the sports-inspired ambience of the terrace with a direct view of the start line.
