“Not a summer destination”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Only spending one night in St. Moritz, we decided to take the funicular & gondola to Piz Nair on a sunny July afternoon. One year later, I still have flashbacks to the moment I emptied my wallet at the ticket counter. Suffice to say, it was not worth the money. Unless; a) you have never seen a funicular or b) you have never been on a mountain.
I can imagine that the view is spectacular in winter time. Not so much in summer. As other reviewers have alluded to, there is nothing to do at the top except to cry into a cup of coffee about the money you just spent to get there. Save some money and skip this during the summer.
On a positive note, my girlfriend did snap a couple of amazing photographs. I think she likes to torture me with those!

“Magic view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We want to ski down from this highest peak on our first day of holidays, but the wind was too strong and the cabins were not driving up. Next day we saw it working and immediately went up. It is on 3057m, nice to take a look down in the valley a little bit, to take some photos and then to ski down - even if it is not sooo long ride as we expected.I suggest to visit the place in nice weather.

“Nice but go there when nice weather”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We took our ski also up there. It started to be windy and it was not easy to ski down, although iam a good skier. You couldnt see almost anything. The restaurant there was half empty at the time of our visit but the service was very slow and the team there was disorganised. The hot chocolate there tastes good.

“winter vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The view from Piz Nair is really beautiful on a fine day. But if you don't ski, the only thing you can do is going up, enjoy the view, eat or drink something (even outside if the wheather permits) and go down again.
