Klosters offers a unique combination of a renowned  mountain resort – the British heir to the throne Prince Charles is a  regular guest – and the idyll of an unspoilt Graubünden village. The  diverse range of activities on offer in summer and winter is well suited  to families with children.

Nestling in what has remained the rural part of the Prättigau (Graubünden), Klosters, with its romantic village-like atmosphere, stands in stark contrast to the nearby Alpine metropolis of Davos. Thanks to the Vereina tunnel, even the Engadine has now become a direct neighbouring region. Klosters belongs to the family resorts bearing the “Families Destination” quality mark.

One of the mountains and valleys we are passing as we bus along …. rocky up the top and coming down steeply to a small creek at the base …. beautiful !!

More mountains and valleys in multiplies we are passing as we bus along …. rocky up the top and coming down steeply to small creeks at the base …. green open pastures are edged by forests. See this website: Head off into the forests | Switzerland Tourism

Rocky mountain top on one of the mountains. Rainfall creates a downhill scree slope from the rocky ridge.

Rocky mountain tops with snow on one of the mountains. This is special for Harriet and I as we come from subtropical Queensland in Australia. We never see snow at all unless we go down south to the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales. See the website: Snowy Mountains – Wikipedia

Hang glider in full sail going off one of the high ridges to the valley below. This was a common sight in the places we stayed in Switzerland. See a post on this website: Cable Car at Klosters

A village way down in the valley with plenty of open grass space in between the buildings.
