Located at around 1200 m above sea level, Klosters is a picture-book alpine holiday resort: a chic chalet-style village, authentic traditions and an international character due to many cosmopolitan habitués. That's probably why even royal guests feel at home here.


Klosters became known as a winter and summer holiday resort over 100 years ago. A decisive impulse for his development into a stylish holiday classic for connoisseurs occurred in the 50s of the last century. At that time, many famous names from the mainly American and British film, music and theater scene discovered the ski resort, which earned it the nickname "Hollywood on the Rocks". At that time, many British and American guests were drawn to Klosters, who found their second home here. They have shaped the style and atmosphere of the resort for decades, their children still do today.

Royal guests, original character

Klosters has been present in the media worldwide in recent decades thanks to his illustrious guests from the British royal family. Nevertheless, the elegant village, which has retained its original character and chalet style, is never out of the ordinary. On the contrary: discreet luxury with understatement has become a formula for success in the upper Prättigau. So even today many famous guests spend their holidays here, who want to relax in peace. 

Families welcome

Klosters has been one of the most family-friendly holiday resorts in Switzerland for years. The leisure activities include one family fun 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 will guide you through the children's area with games, fun and action. The right accommodation is provided by numerous hotels that meet the strict guidelines of the "Families Welcome" seal of quality.  

Discreet luxury without airs and graces

Then as now, illustrious guests like to spend their holidays in Klosters. With good reason: Here they can relax undisturbed. Luxury cars remain in the garage and parties are celebrated in their own chalet. Discreet luxury yes, flaunted ostentation no. In Klosters you won't find any flagship stores of international fashion boutiques - but small, fine shops with a sense of style and authenticity. If you want to stay here in the hotel, you will not find 5-star palaces - but the unsurpassable charm of a Chesa Grischuna or the restrained luxury of well-equipped 4-star hotels. The Arena Klosters offers two year-old sports and event halls with complete infrastructure for events.
