Valentine’s Day in St. Moritz – 7 ideas for your stay

Estimated reading time: 10 minutes

Valentine’s Day is not for you? Maybe not. But let’s be honest, a little romance never hurts a relationship. So why not make the day of love the real relationship highlight of 2023? We’ve put together our top 7 ideas for a successful Valentine’s Day 2023 in St. Moritz.

Hint 1 – Skiing and ice skating in St Moritz Sounds too unromantic? But it isn’t. Breathtaking views await you and promise togetherness in wonderful nature.

Hint 2 – Sledge run Preda Bergün A sledding fun should not be missing on this list, of course. We have heard that common adventures bond people together.

Hint 3 – Carriage ride through the snow The classic, couldn’t be more romantic. Too kitschy, you say? No way, we say. It is a dream!

Hint 4 – Fondue by the lake  Melt-in-your-mouth cheese fondue in a heated tent with a breathtaking view of the lake? Admittedly, cheese never sounded so romantic.

Hint 5 – Spa Suite A wellness oasis all to yourself? Sure, there is and that’s what we offer in the dipiù Spa at Giardino Mountain.

Hint 6 – Ecco Dinner Fancy a culinary journey at its best? Then the 2-star Ecco Restaurant in our Hotel Giardino Mountain is just right for you.

Hint 7 – Flowers in the room Doesn’t sound so exciting? Look into your wife’s eyes when she enters the room and say that again.

Ok ok, we have another Giardino secret tip: Cocktail «Jus d’Amour».

The juice of love is available in our bar lounge and with the fireplace flickering, we like to move closer together.

A happy couple in the winter landscape for Valentine's Day

A time out for two – Plan your Valentine’s Day at the Hotel Giardino Mountain in St. Moritz and let yourself be enchanted.

Hint 1 – Skiing and ice skating in St. Moritz – winter sports opportunities for two on Valentine’s Day 2023

Breathtaking views await you and promise togetherness in wonderful nature. Would you like to actively explore nature and the surrounding area with your sweetheart during your stay with us in St. Moritz? Nothing could be easier, there are numerous possibilities in the Engadine for this kind of Valentine’s Day date.

View from Hotel Giardino Mountain towards Lej da Champfèr

Breathtaking scenery for your date – This view from Giardino Mountain will make your heart beat faster.

In the four large ski areas Corviglia/Piz Nair, Corvatsch, Diavolezza/Lagalb, and Zuoz, as well as five smaller areas, skiers, and snowboarders can enjoy a total of 88 fantastic pistes covering around 350 kilometers. Enthusiastic winter sports enthusiasts will therefore get their money’s worth. A free ski shuttle will take you and your partner on request from Giardino Mountain to the ski lift Chasellas (Suvretta area) or to the mountain railroad Corvatsch. In addition, you also have the chance to cross-country ski through the Engadine winter wonderland on 230 kilometers of trails. Whether over frozen lakes or snow-covered forests is entirely up to you. The advantage of this is that you can start right at the gates of Giardino Mountain, without having to queue or take the lift.

Off to the slopes! – Enjoy your Valentine’s Day 2023 together doing winter sports.

The possibilities are not yet completely exhausted. You can explore the wintry landscape by sledding and tobogganing, on a snowshoe hike, or snowkiting. Another very popular and romantic idea is skating on the Engadine Ice Trail, a 3 km long circular trail that leads through the forests of the Lower Engadine. Or Ice Trail Madulain, probably the most beautiful ice trail in the Engadin. This one is also about 3 km long and leads you from Madulain through the wonderful alluvial landscape along the banks of the river Inn to Zuoz. Together hand in hand you can enjoy the light play of the river and the view of the historic village center. Other options are on the frozen lakes, such as Lake St. Moritz, or the Lej da Champfèr. This is particularly romantic as in the evening, weather permitting, the surroundings are bathed in an orange, pink evening light. In addition, the full moon rises in a few days after Valentine’s Day, so the moon will already create a thoroughly romantic atmosphere.

Hint 2 – Sledge run Preda Bergün: The longest sledge run in Europe

You want to spend a lot of time together and be very close to each other? Then the Preda Bergün toboggan run is just the thing for you. The toboggan run Bergün is one of the most popular toboggan runs in Europe with its length of several kilometers and its winding route. No wonder that every year countless tobogganing fans and adrenaline junkies from all over the world make a pilgrimage to Bergün. The fun already starts with the train ride on the Rhaetian Railway from Bergün to Preda. The journey takes you over majestic bridges, through deep valleys, and past high cliffs to the sledding fun in Preda. We think that on Valentine’s Day a tobogganing fun should not be missing! Our tip: After a long toboggan ride, treat yourself to the fine homemade cheese fondue, prepared over a glowing fire in Bergün.


And off you go! – Enjoy the slide for two on the longest toboggan run in Europe.

Hint 3 – A romantic carriage ride through the winter landscape around St. Moritz

For all lovebirds who would like their date to take place a little more quietly in a private atmosphere but still don’t want to miss out on enjoying the enchanting winter landscape and fresh mountain air in St. Moritz and the surrounding area, we recommend a carriage or sleigh ride. Snuggled up in warm blankets and skins, you can spend time together on very different routes, such as the frozen lakes, the Stazerwald, or even the impressive St. Moritz itself. You will listen to the winter silence and the sound of horses trotting step by step along your chosen route through the glistening snow. This date will make you forget all the stress of everyday life and you can dive into your winter fairy tale together!

Hint 4 – Fondue by the lake at sunset

Cheese fondue is simply a tradition with us. You don’t find cheese particularly romantic? Then you should try the cheese fondue à la Tanda in the heated tent with a beautiful view. Between the Lej Suot and Lake Silvaplana at the Surlej bridge is the “place to be” for all those who like to take it easy. Not only in the evening there is a breathtaking ambiance, but also during the day, you will find various offers for a successful day with your sweetheart.


The way to a person’s heart is through their stomach – Romantic cheese fondue in a heated tent incl. breathtaking view.

Hint 5 – Wellness and time for two on Valentine’s Day in our dipiù Spa Suite

If the weather doesn’t harmonize with your plans due to snow flurries on Valentine’s Day itself, or you prefer to sit back, relax and simply enjoy wellness on Valentine’s Day, then a date with your partner in our dipiù Spa Suite is indispensable. Because time together is luxury. Giving this to each other in a spa suite on a special day is not only proof of deep connection and love, but also a sign of good taste.
