1. Puzzle over the Schiefer Turm
Not to be outdone by their Italian cousins, Switzerland’s own leaning bell tower tilts at an angle of 5.5 degrees, a greater pitch than that other one in Pisa. Does it bother the Swiss? Perhaps.
2. Ride the Cresta Run
Where St Moritz excels is its thrill-a-minute sports. Top dog is the Cresta Run, a mind-boggling toboggan track that challenges riders to speed down an icy slope at up to 140kmh. No experience? No worries; practice sessions are available for beginners.
3. Go for a shopping spree at Via Serlas
As Fifth Avenue is to New York, this cobbled boulevard is Alpine Switzerland’s see-and-be-seen goldmine. Browse in Gucci, Jimmy Choo and Ermenegildo Zegna, then spend, spend, spend at Harry Winston.
4. Sunbathe at Chesa Chantarella
The terrace at this restaurant perch, high above the Engadin Valley, is where the moneyed come to sip champagne against a backdrop of exquisite mountain and lake views. And with an average 322 days of sunshine a year, can you blame them?
