Switzerland, Graubunden Region
Set in a stunning valley of green meadows strewn with farms and sun-worn chalets, Klosters is a peaceful, quiet village, with wonderful scope for walking. It is surrounded by rolling hills and rural activity, providing a spectacular backdrop for the varied walking terrain. The free use of lifts, including the Gotschna cablecar and Madrisa gondola, represents excellent value for money, and provides easy access into the dramatic mountain landscape with waterfalls, lakes and scenic views. The local Rhäetian railway connecting guests to Davos in only 20 minutes is also included. Destinations further afield, such as the Swiss National Park of the Engadine valley, St.Moritz and Arosa are also easily accessible via the efficient railway network.
Multi-Centres | You can combine your stay in Davos with any one or more resort(s) of your choice in Switzerland. We recommend Zermatt or Lake Lucerne. Flexible durations available. Transfers between resorts via the Swiss transport network are included (see pages 229 & 312). Or try our recommended independent rail holiday that also features Klosters: Glacier Express.

There are approx. 700km of marked walking trails in the Davos/ Klosters region, offering a fabulous range of walks to suit all abilities and tastes. The vast walking area which covers both sides of the valley is accessed easily by cable-car or funicular from the resort centres.
Easy Take the mountain railway from Davos to Schatzalp to visit the Alpine botanical garden. There are gentle walks at the teop, great views and you can choose to walk back down through the forest. Or take the pleasant stroll along the Landwasser rier from Davos Platz to pretty Frauenkirch.
Alternatively, walk the Klosters –Monbiel – Garfuin (route no K7/K11, 2 ¼ hrs) route. This is a nice walk to do in the first few days of your holiday to get a little used to the altitude, or as a walk to do when the cloud is low. From the sports centre in Klosters, you simply follow the river as far as you like all the way to Garfuin where you can enjoy the service provided by the restaurant. The return journey can be made on a different path that brings you back via Monbiel. This hike can be done in either direction and you can catch the bus to or from Monbiel or Aeuja if you need to.
Moderate From Klosters, head up on the Madrisa gondola and up to Mässplatte for a beautiful view of the Prattigau valley. Alternatively, walk the Klosters – Bad Serneus - Serneus (route 93/95, 1 ¾ h) route: A short pleasant walk through the meadow and grazing land, that shows off the rural side of Klosters as you pass by farms and horses. This is another good walk to do when it’s too cloudy to head up the mountains but you still want to stretch your legs. From the quaint village of Serneus you have a bus back to Klosters.
Slightly challenging Take the Parsenn lift from Davos Dorf and walk across the peaks following the well-recommended ‘Panoramaweg’ path, descending later via the Gotschna cable-car into Klosters. For more experienced hikers, catch the postbus to Tschuggen and walk up to the protected area of Pischa, where you can cross the ridge at Hüreli and then head down to Lake Davos. On the way, you will see the only place where you can see Davos and neighbouring Klosters at the same time.
Alternatively, walk the Klosters – Alpenroesli – Palfarn – Klosters dorf
(route no 122/124/109, 2 – 2 ½ h) route. The Alpenroesli is a lovely rustic restaurant situated 250m above Klosters and this trip makes a great little lunch tour. You walk halfway, treat yourself to lunch, then finish the
route. The first part of the route is up hill but once you get past the restaurant the direction is then predominately downwards. You can then catch the bus back from Klosters Dorf
