Holiday classic for connoisseurs

Holiday classic for connoisseurs

Klosters is a picture book holiday resort: an elegant chalet-style village, authentic traditions and an international flair with many cosmopolitan customs. Maybe that is why even royal guests feel so at home here.

Klosters was known as a winter and summer holiday destination more than 100 years ago. It experienced a decisive impetus in its development as a stylish holiday classic for connoisseurs in the 1950s. At that time, many famous names from the American and British film, music and theatre scene discovered the ski resort, which resulted in the name "Hollywood on the Rocks". During this time, many British and American guests moved to Klosters, and made their second home here. They characterised the style and atmosphere of the holiday village for decades, and their children are still doing it to this day.  


Royal guests, original character

During recent decades, Klosters has enjoyed an international media presence, thanks to its illustrious guests from the British royal family.  Despite this, the elegant village, which retains its original character and chalet style, is never aloof. On the contrary: Discreet luxury with understatement has become the formula for success in the upper Prättigau. As such, the resort is still a popular destination for many famous guests, who wish to relax in peace here.

Families welcome

Klosters has been one of the most family-friendly holiday villages in Switzerland for many years. The leisure activities on offer include one family fun activity after another: Themed trails, scooter runs, or the fantastic "Madrisa-Land" - the largest playground in the Swiss mountains. The five animals of the Madrisa Gang guide you through the children's land with fun, games and action.  The numerous hotels and the strict guidelines accompanying the quality seal "Families welcome" ensure that the ideal accommodation is guaranteed.

Royal Playground

Only the name of the Gotschna cable car booth baptised the "Prince of Wales" provides a hint. Otherwise it is hardly apparent that Klosters has been hosting illustrious guests from various royal families, Hollywood stars, the nobility and industrial tycoons since the 1950s. And that is a good thing.

Discreet luxury without airs and graces

Then and to this day, illustrious guests enjoy spending their holidays in Klosters. With good reason: They can relax in peace here. In doing so the luxury car stays in the garage and the parties are hosted in their own chalets. Discreet luxury - yes, pomposity just for show - no. As such, there are no flagship stores from international fashion boutiques in Klosters - but instead small, refined shops with a sense of style and authenticity. Anyone who wishes to stay overnight here will find no 5-star palace - but instead the unbeatable charm of the Chesa Grischuna or the understated luxury of a well equipped 4-star hotel.
