Wildly romantic, sunny and sheltered: Pontresina is nestled amongst mountains –
a place for leisure as well as recreation. Arguably the best vantage point is the
world-famous Montebello hairpin bend, at the point where the Bernina section of the
Rhaetian Railway crosses the road. You can see the tallest peaks of the Eastern Alps
behind the Morteratsch Glacier, including Piz Bernina (4,049 m), Piz Palü (3,901 m),
Piz Roseg (3,937 m) and Bellavista. Fancy cooling down a little? The glacier trail from
Morteratsch station takes you to where the ice is eternal.
