Expert Opinion Our Expert
Andrea Selig

"Klosters is quieter, prettier and more traditional than its neighbour Davos. It’s great for a romantic getaway or for a family holiday but if you’re a bit of a party animal, head for Davos."

Why Klosters?

Klosters is the archetypal Swiss ski resort. Nestled into the beautiful Prättigau valley, the village oozes history and traditional charm.

Although it shares its ski area with Davos, the feel of Klosters village couldn’t be more different. The traditional timber chalets contrast with Davos’ flat-roofed modernist architecture and the feeling here is cosy, friendly and compact.

Klosters is perfect for a weekend or short break ski holiday as well as for a skiing holiday of a longer duration. Klosters is ideal for couples and families with a short transfer time from Zurich and an impressive ski area that will certainly keep you challenged for the duration of your stay.

Klosters has access to the 5 mountains of the Davos/Klosters ski area. The Gotschna and Madrisa runs are within close proximity to Klosters and the remaining mountains are accessed via Davos.
