Klosters Ski Resort

Although Klosters has acquired international renown on account of the regular presence each winter of members of the British Royal Family, it remains at heart a quiet, charming farming village with sophisticated international appeal. Visitors can expect to experience a unique combination of a renowned mountain resort and the idyll of an unspoiled Graubünden village. A year-round population of just 3,000 people who are mainly farmers during the summer months, makes for a traditional town full of authentic Alpine charm.

Small and quaint, you can reach anywhere in the Klosters Platz village centre on foot in just a few minutes, making it the ideal destination for couples or families looking for an easy and relaxing week away. In fact, Klosters is now a member of the collection of resorts bearing the ‘Families Destination’ quality mark.
