Switzerland – The funicular to The Romantik Hotel Muottas Muragl just outside St Moritz is met at the valley station Punt Muragl.

It takes ten minutes to climb the 2201m of steep mountainside through sweet smelling pine trees, to reach this spot which has known a century of hospitality. At a height of 2456m above sea level the temperatures drop with the climb, and on the night settled at -2C on the hotel’s wooden deck, with sprinklings of snow underfoot.

The Swiss adage build high for overview and maximum sunshine has been adhered to, bringing you best vantage point to enjoy magic hour, as they refer to that perfect time when dusk falls.

Sheer panoramic indulgence with the song of cow bells reaching you on the chilly wind … The Romantik Hotel offers 16 rooms, sumptuous dining on regional delicacies and fine local wines in their Mountain Dining Restaurant. With its snug ambiance it will warm you for days.

Take in the panoramic tour here.
