Formerly a mere transit location between Chur and Tiefencastel, Lenzerheide, located at an altitude of 1500 metres above sea level in a high valley, has been a popular winter and summer health resort for families and sports enthusiasts for some time now. The smaller holiday resorts of Parpan and Lantsch/Lenz are located in the same high valley.

The varied options available for families and the comprehensive childcare services have been awarded the „Families Welcome“ quality label. A great number of family-friendly hotels and holiday apartments offer accommodation to suit every budget.

Summer

Heidsee sparkles like a diamond in the high-lying valley of Lenzerheide. The surrounding summits will enchant you with their magical allure, as the scent of the lush green Alpine meadows invites you to sit back and relax. What could be better after a fantastic hike or an exciting bike tour than dangling your feet in the cold waters of Heidsee? Enjoy the last rays of sunshine. Breathe in the crisp mountain air and let the day’s experiences put a big smile on your face.

Coming from Zurich, Lenzerheide is the most rapidly accessible holiday destination in the canton of Grisons. And less travel time means longer holidays. Travelling by car, follow the signs to Chur-South and then exit the motorway towards Lenzerheide; in just 20 minutes, you’ll be smack-dab in the middle of the holiday region. If you are arriving by public transportation, Grisons PostAuto buses depart Chur and take you directly to Lenzerheide.
