Graubünden’s most charming mountain villages
Graubünden is blessed with a large number of small villages off the beaten track. You will have the opportunity to get to know a variety of cultures and to participate in the daily life of the locals.
No matter whether it’s a trip to Tenna, Guarda or the Fideriser Heuberge: the journey to one of Graubünden’s most charming mountain villages is an unforgettable experience. Away from the well-known tourism destinations, Graubünden presents itself as an original universe with exciting peculiarities. Where else can you travel in a single canton through three different linguistic regions? This peculiarity has left its mark on the local customs and traditions as well as the mentality of the inhabitants of each language region.
The various cultures are also evident in the differing villagescapes: Sgraffito-decorated houses in the Engadine, sun-blackened wooden houses in Schanfigg, and the typical Walser houses in Vals, bear witness to the turbulent history of this region – and to the life of its people. If you want to fully immerse yourself in the locals’ daily life, visit one of the idyllic farmsteads and help feed the animals, make hay, or produce cheese.
