Good to Know Sils is said to abound in natural earth energy, or life force  and that you can even measure it. By why bother, when you are bewitched anyway by the magic of the landscape at first sight? Writers such as Nietzsche, artists like Beuys and musicians including David Bowie all drew inspiration from the wide-open spaces here and the magical light. Idyllically located between two frozen lakes, the village also stands at the entrance to the romantic Val Fex.
