About The Hotel Walther Pontresina Wedding Venue

Hotel Walther is a family-owned and operated hotel amidst the mountains of Pontresina with a long and storied history. What once started as a modest inn in the late 1800s blossomed into a luxurious hotel. They opened in the early 1900s to take advantage of the area’s booming tourism industry. Its spectacular architecture featured Art Nouveau touches like coast of arms, turrets, and stained glass. In the indoors, then-modern amenities like air conditioning, heating, and electric lights were a huge draw for elite guests. The majestic hotel catapulted into fame and acclaim - until both world wars found the local economy dry and the hotel empty. 

In the 1950s, Pontresina again became a burgeoning winter sports destination, and the hotel again began to fill. In 1956, the hotel found new ownership in Hans Walther. However, the hotel had fallen into a bit of disrepair. It was no longer considered one of the area’s premiere resorts. When given to the next generation of Walthers, Barbara and Christian, they began skillfully restoring the hotel to its former glory while modernizing it with passion and continuity. 

Today, after decades of work, effort, and craftsmanship, Hotel Walther is once again one of Pontresina’s most exquisite destinations. It has cozy yet modern accommodations, world-class dining, and an indulgent wellness oasis. Now owned and operated by the third generation of Walthers, the hotel has earned its place as the best of the best - and the same is true regarding hosting magnificent and memorable events!
