Klosters

The village of Klosters is surrounded by majestic mountains, not far from Davos in the southeastern Swiss canton of Graubuenden, also known as the Grisons.

Prince Charles skis here with his sons every March. Klosters is a favorite with many other international celebrities and VIPs, who have been coming here for generations. But it’s a resort that knows how to help its visitors keep a low profile, which is an endearing quality for those trying to escape the public eye. However, Klosters is by no means a “glitter resort”. On the contrary.

In winter, the skiing and other snow and ice sports are great, as is the “sport” of après-ski, which you don’t have to be athletic to enjoy! Off-trail skiing supervised by experienced guides is a Klosters specialty.

In summer, it’s a hiker’s and biker’s paradise, and golf is nearby. Wellness facilities are available the year around.

The village itself has retained its traditional character, and the pace of life is “civilized”.

This is a place where good food is part of the culture, and where hospitality is taken for granted. There are many fine hotels, restaurants and apartments for all budgets. The hotel and restaurant favored by Prince Charles is the Walserhof.

But Klosters in not just for the rich and famous. People of all ages and purses will feel at home here, and will enjoy the same tradition of hospitality.
