Celebrate Thanksgiving with us in Sophisticated Style

25 November 2023, Pontresina

The Cornell Club of Switzerland is celebrating its 37th Annual Thanksgiving Gala at the Grand Hotel Kronenhof in Pontresina. Thanksgiving is our grandest event of the year, and we welcome you and your family to come join us in this very special historical resort location.

Brief History of Pontresina

Nestled in the Engadin Valley amid the Swiss Alps, Pontresina has evolved into a premier resort destination with a history dating back over a century. Initially sought after for its therapeutic mountain air, Pontresina gained prominence in the late 1800s as a summer retreat for the elite. The opening of the Bernina Railway in 1908 enhanced accessibility, and luxury hotels like the Grand Hotel Kronenhof with its opulent architecture and Belle Époque style catered to a sophisticated clientele.

The Grand Dame of the Engadin

We are thrilled to hold our Thanksgiving Gala at the historical Grand Hotel Kronenhof and to be welcomed by Marc Eichenberger, General Manager and Cornell hotelier, of this fabulous Grand Dame of the Engadin known for its top luxury and wellness spas.

Our Thanksgiving Gala

Our program will begin with a guided tour of Pontresina village where we will see some of the historical architecture. Afterward, there will be time to enjoy the hotel amenities and spa (including Kid Club, for our younger guests) before the Annual General Meeting (AGM). All active dues-paying members are invited to participate in the AGM and provide feedback on our Club’s developments.

Following the AGM, there will be an aperitif with champagne in the gorgeous hotel lobby to set the mood for our Thanksgiving dinner with all the traditional dishes exquisitely prepared.

We hope you join us for an unforgettable Thanksgiving Celebration in Pontresina this year. More information is on our registration page.
