Graubuenden is a wonderful travel destination in winter and summer alike

 

Graubuenden’s capital, Chur, is Switzerlands oldest city as its origins date back to the roman times. Being rather small, you can explore the Old Quarter with its museums, boutiques etc. in little time and experience a cultural highlight in between all the outdoor activities that the valleys and mountains of Graubuenden offer in such abundance.


The best-known town in Graubuenden is probably St. Moritz, the cradle of winter tourism and hotspot for the international jet set. With its perfect mix of a breathtaking landscape, good weather, great choice of outdoor activities and some of the best hotels in the world, St. Moritz spoils its visitors.

 

Davos, the highest town in the Alps and site of the annual World Economic Forum, also scores high with a huge range of activities as well as an international ambience and luxury accommodation. Besides its reputation as an exclusive venue for conferences, Davos is also a high-altitude health resort with a long tradition of healthy vacations.

 

Also Samnaun and Pontresina are recommended travel destinations for your stay in Graubuenden. Even though they are not as popular as St. Moritz and Davos, they are just as charming and eventful. Pontresina, in close proximity to St. Moritz, for example is known for its spa treatments and architectural highlights that combine the typical Engadine style with hotels in Belle Epoque elegance. Samnaun, located in the Austrian-Italian triangle and surrounded by a multifaceted landscape, is a fantastic region for lovers of winter sports, hiking and mountain biking. Samnaun is also Switzerland's only tax-free-resort, which is why it is much frequented by tourists who just want to shop.


In the Lower Engadine valley of Graubuenden lies the Swiss National Park, which is Switzerland’s only National Park and the country’s largest protected area. There, you find a wealth of untouched alpine flora and fauna.

 

Graubuenden offers a wonderful mix of vast nature, endless opportunities for outdoor sports, luxury hideaways with international ambience and historic towns and villages. Here, you experience Switzerland from a very exclusive and tranquil, yet exciting side.
