St. Moritz Design Gallery

Car park art

Nowhere in the Alps has such a great concentration of galleries as St. Moritz and the Engadin region. One particular gallery is even open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and attracts a million visitors annually. The St. Moritz Design Gallery adds artistic flair to the St. Moritz Parkhaus Serletta car park, which is located between the train station, the lake and the Palace Hotel.

Parkhaus Serletta opened in St. Moritz in 2004. It’s more than just a modern, multi-storey car park. Visitors and locals can use its escalators to travel comfortably between the town and the lake, and it features a viewing platform on the lake side that attracts scores of snap-happy tourists. Last but not least, the Parkhaus also makes a cultural contribution to St. Moritz in the form of the St. Moritz Design Gallery, which runs the length of its escalators.

31 glass cabinets 

Along the pedestrian walkway from Badrutt’s Palace Hotel down to the lake there are 31 large illuminated glass cabinets that host a series of temporary exhibitions featuring valuable posters and photographs. It’s a kind of 24/7 art gallery, entertaining passers-by with a variety of different themes.

1 million visitors every year

The St. Moritz Design Gallery’s inaugural exhibition opened on 18 December 2004. It’s theme was 75 years of the St. Moritz brand. "It was difficult at first, as there was no administrative body behind the Design Gallery. Later we had to introduce strict guidelines, because we were overwhelmed by the number of exhibition enquiries," explains Martin Berthod. Berthod is a member of a committee that selects the themes for the exhibitions, which typically run for six months. Parkhaus Serletta’s glass cabinets are much loved and for good reason, as Berthod reveals: "In the gallery’s second year, the former tourist board director Peter Danuser commissioned a study into the frequency of pedestrians along the St. Moritz Design Gallery – since then, we know that around one million visitors see the Design Gallery each year."
