Grischun (Graubünden)
The southeastern part of Switzerland, from the gentle Rhine river valley to the blue lakes of Upper Engadin. World-famous destinations as Davos and Sankt Moritz, and an incredible variety of beautiful landscapes.
Ardez - Susch
Ardez and Susch are two villages located in the beautiful Engadin Valley, in GraubŁnden, between the FlŁela Pass (connecting Davos to Engadin) and Scuol (main town of the Lower Engadin).
Arosa
A famous Swiss tourist resort, Arosa is situated at the top of the Schanfigg Valley, Southeast of Chur, the capital of GraubŁnden. At 1775m over sea level, it's a great destination in summer as well as in winter.
Chur
Chur (in Romansh Cuira and in Italian Coira) is the capital of Canton of GraubŁnden, in Southeastern Switzerland. With some 38,000 inhabitants, it's a relatively big town at the Swiss scale, and it has kept a very nice old town.
Davos
Host to the World Economic Forum (WEF), annual meeting of global political and business elites, and home of one of Switzerland's biggest ski resorts, Davos is also the site of the famous Spengler Cup ice hockey tournament.
Disentis/Mustér
High up in the Rhine valley, Disentis (in German) or Mustťr (in Romansh) is situated in the Surselva, a Romansh-speaking region of GraubŁnden (Grischun). It is the site of one of the oldest Benedictine monasteries in Switzerland, dating back to year 720 and extended to its actual size between 1696 and 1712.
Flüela
The FlŁela Pass, at 2,383 m over sea level, connects in GraubŁnden the city of Davos and the Engadin Valley. Since the opening in 1999 of the Vereina Railway Tunnel with its shuttle trains transporting road vehicles, this important road is not open all year long anymore, but in summer it's a must!
Klosters
Near Davos, in GraubŁnden, Klosters is some kind of mix of jet-set mountain resort (British heir to the throne Prince Charles is a regular guest) and of relatively unspoilt typical village.
Maienfeld
The whole area is nicknamed Heidiland, as Maienfeld is the village where Heidi lived... Of course, it's only an imaginary character but the book written in 1880 by Swiss author Johanna Spyri, one of the best-selling books ever written and among the best-known works of Swiss literature, lives on in this village.
Oberalp
Oberalp Pass, in the Swiss Alps, is the high mountain pass (2046m over sea level) connecting the cantons of Uri (Central Switzerland) and GraubŁnden (Southeastern Switzerland) between Andermatt and Disentis.
Pontresina
580km of hiking routes, 400km of mountain bike trails and great climbing spots: a Mecca for mountain lovers. Near St. Moritz and Samedan, on the road to Bernina Pass connecting Upper Engadin to Val Poschiavo (Italian-speaking region of GraubŁnden).
Samedan
Capital of Upper Engadin, and guardian of Engadin lifestyle. Serving as a hub for the Rhaetian Railway, it is the ideal departure point for sporting activities and excursions into the beautiful landscapes of the region.
Sankt Moritz
One of the oldest Swiss tourist destinations, St. Moritz enjoys 322 sunny days every year. It is situated in Upper Engadin, one of the most beautiful regions of GraubŁnden, with crystal-clear lakes surrounded by majestic mountains.
Scuol
Main town of Lower Engadin, in GraubŁnden, Scuol is known since centuries for its ferruginous and alkaline-sodic springs: the therapeutic virtues of these waters were discovered by the famous physician-alchemist Paracelsus in the 16th Century.
Silvaplana
At the top of Upper Engadin (GraubŁnden), lakes of St-Moritz, ChampfŤr, Silvaplana, and Sils are four jewels in a magnificent setting. Lake Silvaplana, known for its predictable winds, is a very popular place for windsurfing, kitesurfing and dinghy-sailing.
Val Bregaglia
From the last village of the Upper Engadin valley, Maloja, the road dives abruptly in a deep valley, Val Bregaglia, along the steep curves of the Maloja Pass. And then you are South of the Alps, on your way to Lake Como and Italy.
