Piz Bernina or Pizzo Bernina is the highest mountain in the Eastern Alps, the highest point of the Bernina Range, and the highest peak in the Rhaetian Alps. It rises 4,048.6 m (13,283 ft) and is located south of Pontresina and near the major Alpine resort of St. Moritz, in the Engadin valley with the massif partially in Italy. It is also the most easterly mountain higher than 4,000m in the Alps, the highest point of the Swiss canton of Graubünden, and the fifth-most prominent peak in the Alps. The minor summit (4,020m) known as La Spedla is the highest point in the Italian Lombardy region.The mountain was named after the Bernina Pass in 1850 by Johann Coaz, who also made the first ascent. The prefix Piz comes from the Romansch language in Graubünden; any mountain with that name can be readily identified as being located in southeastern Switzerland.

Where to stay in St. Moritz

St. Moritz matches its glitzy streets, graceful mountain peaks, and sparkling blue lake with a string of expensive high-end hotels. World-renowned for both its skiing and its price tag, this town might not be for those seeking economical accommodations. Your options range from hotels and guesthouses to chalet-style apartments for rent. If you're budget doesn't fit the prices here, sacrifice convenience by opting to stay in one of the neighboring towns like Pontresina or Celerina, which offer more affordable alternatives.
