Attractions St Moritz
Ice climbing

For those who want an edge to their Switzerland adventure, frozen waterfalls offer a more active way to get around for those fit and brave enough to climb it.

Set in Pontresina, these ice-clad rock walls allow climbing enthusiast to scale the cliffs around this idyllic mountainside town.

Climbing gear, experience and a high fitness level are required for this attraction. Mountain guides spray water on the ice to maintain the optimal thickness, but even so climbing is still recommended in the winter months. There’s even a Ice Climbing Festival in February, making it a perfect time to celebrate and participate in all things ice and mountainous.
