Klosters (1560m)

Klosters - Skiing in the footsteps of world stars

Hidden in the Prättigau valley in southeastern Switzerland is Klosters, one of the most popular ski areas in Switzerland. It is the second tourist ski area in the Davos-Klosters Mountains region. Connected to Davos by the Wolfgangspass (1631 m) and Gotschna and Parsenn railways, Klosters impresses with its character as a typical alpine village with traditional chalets made of stone and wood, alpine farms and its old church.

The village of Klosters-Serneus consists of three gradually arranged districts on a high plateau. At the top, at an altitude of 1206m, is Klosters-Platz, a bit further down at 1124m is Klosters Dorf and below it Serneus (990m). The winter sports facilities are located in Klosters-Platz. The ski area consists of the sub-areas Madrisa, a paradise for families and beginners, and Gotschna / Parsenn, which connects Klosters to its sister Davos. Klosters and Davos share a total of 320 kilometers of pistes. At Klosters, there are 114 km of alpine pistes with different levels of difficulty. Cross-country skiers have 46 km of cross-country routes, including skating. Also possible in Klosters: cross-country skiing with floodlights, on approx. 3 km length, always on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 21.30 o'clock. With more than 30% difficult pistes, Klosters is above all a ski area for intermediate and advanced skiers. But also for beginners there are special facilities. At the Madrisa, beginners and intermediate can acquire, deepen or simply have fun.

Madrisa, the family paradise

Like the neighboring ski area of Davos, Klosters also carries the "Families Welcome" seal of quality. This means that the facilities and offers of this ski area are tailored to the needs of families, to provide maximum comfort, especially for the children. Klosters deserves this seal. Aspiring skiers can safely try out the well-groomed, wide, blue pistes, with gentle pistes. The sub-ski area Madrisa is the local mountain of Klosters. There you will find the Madrisaland, an adventure park full of legends and myths. Mythical creatures, such as gnomes, goblins and alpine spirits await the children. The park can be reached on foot at 1884 meters by car, bus or gondola. In winter there is also a snow park with numerous offers: ski taster courses, games, snow carousel.

The Kinderland is equipped with modern facilities specially designed for the well-being of children: magic carpets, heated playrooms, practice courses, inflatables and restaurants. Under the supervision of experienced caregivers, children between the ages of 0 and six can gain their first experience on skis, try things out or just play in the Stuzli Kids' Club. Madrisa is also a family paradise because of its sleigh run: crazy runs with a guaranteed fun factor for the whole family on a seemingly endless 8.5 km run between Madrisa and the Saas area. A fantastic route with serpentines and dizzying curves through the snowy forest of Prättigau and its wonderful panorama. Madrisa also has a snowtubing and giant slalom piste. In the Parsenn area there is a piste where you can measure your speed. Skiers and snowboarders can compete against each other here to see who is the fastest. In the fun park of Madrisa there is also a snowboard cross-facility, where risk-takers on routes, kickers and with various jumps can get the adrenaline rush.

In good company - Klosters and his prominent guests

The best thing about the Klosters ski area is the successful combination of a sociable, alpine atmosphere with modern winter sports facilities. For all those who are looking for a quiet and discreet ski area in a dreamlike mountain landscape, which offers all the necessary amenities for a successful ski holiday, Klosters is the ideal destination. Not surprisingly, this little spot is the favorite ski area for many celebrities. Both Prince Charles and other members of the English Royal Family are regular guests of the ski area. Klosters has been a winter destination for famous people since the 19th century. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the "father" of Sherlock Holmes, scriptwriter Peter Viertel and his friend the writer Irwin Shaw have already skimmed down the pistes of Klosters on skis. Other guests included Winston Churchill, Queen Silvia of Sweden, William and Kate, as well as the movie stars Paul Newman, Gregory Peck, Yul Brynner, Lauren Bacall, Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn and Gene Kelly. Klosters is now a popular holiday destination for the international jet set and important political figures.

These famous guests helped Klosters, the last Swiss village in front of the Austrian border to its world-wide reputation, from which it benefits today. The wedding of the scriptwriter Peter Viertel with the actress Deborah Kerr has lured numerous Hollywood greats to Klosters. The repeated visits of his prominent guests also shape the atmosphere in the village. A cabin of the Gotschnabahn was christened "Prince of Wales". The black run of Meierhofer Tälli, between Davos and the neighboring village of Wolfgang, is for the locals only "Hillary Clinton Piste" because it is their favorite downhill. Also unforgotten is Gene Kelly's dance on the piano of the Hotel Chesa Grischuna, which greatly contributed to Klosters' worldwide reputation.
