Prättigau

Graubünden

Embedded in the majestic Silvretta group and the impressive Raetikon, the Praettigau offers good weather in summer or in winter with a wide variety of adventure pursuits in natural surroundings. Despite the immediate proximity to the world-famous destination Davos Klosters, the Praettigau has been largely spared from mass tourism.

A valley for discovery and enjoyment A unique variety is reflected in the hosts: from Gault-Milaau to „real, rustical, original“. The offering is varied and oriented to the local culture. There are cosy double rooms lit by candle light or more modern hotels, sometimes with a direct view from the cheminé lounge to the sheep pastures. This may be a little peculiar, but in the Praettigau everything was and is a little bit different...

Summer

Underneath the impressive walls of chalk, there are vast lush alpine pastures. Bordering Austria, the Raetikon offers attractive climbing and trekking possibilities. The first climbing garden in the Grisons presents an extraordinary view and foresight for the one who is free from giddiness. The climbing novices and the more relaxed persons will love the alpine rope course. Those who prefer the horizontal to the vertical will enjoy over 1000 km of hiking trails and 500 km of bike trails at one’s feet, in the true sense of the word. Gentle hills on one side, with the wild alpine environment on the other side of the valley. After all, attributes which fits to the locals...
