Welcome to the dreamy Grand Hotel Kronenhof, a five-star hotel with original old-world charm, located at the heart of the snowy Alps! Grand Hotel Kronenhof has a rich and interesting history, having first opened its doors in 1848 as the Rössli guesthouse. In its cellars, a Veltliner wine shop was established, along with stabling for the horses that transported the wines over the Bernina Pass. In the second half of the 19th century, the guesthouse business flourished and the then owner, Lorenz Gredig, extended the premises. In 2004, Grand Hotel Kronenhof was bought by the Niarchos family and underwent a massive rennovation and expansion. The architecture of this heritage-protected luxury-class establishment is inspired by its location in the heart of the idyllic Engadine village of Pontresina. Pontresina’s charm lies in the architectural blend of fine old Engadine houses with their typical “sgraffito” (decorated walls) from the 17th & 18th centuries and elegant Belle Epoque style buildings.
