Welcome to Klosters


Situated about six miles (10km) from the busy Swiss ski resort of Davos Dorf, in the heart of the Graubunden region south-east of Zurich, the small, traditional and quiet village of Klosters shares the expansive Parsenn ski area with the larger resort, but offers a more exclusive and romantic holiday setting.

Klosters, its two pretty neighbourhoods filled with picturesque chalets, also has its own ski area, the Madrisa, ensuring the resort offers skiing for all abilities in a discreetly charming Alpine setting, away from the madding crowd of the tourist mass market. Exclusivity is expensive, however, and therefore this holiday resort is regarded as upmarket. For this reason, Klosters has become known as the holiday haunt of the rich and famous, and is particularly favoured by the British Royal family, especially Prince Charles, as a winter sports getaway with first-class off-piste skiing.
