Corvatsch, Switzerland Tourism

Extend winter in Switzerland:
Alpine winter tourism plays a central role in the mountains of Graubünden. Hardly surprising, considering the 1000 peaks and more than 2200 kilometres of slopes and trails in the region.

The Alpine city of Chur offers a combination of urban love of life and magical alpine scenery. You can ski and snowboard right there on Chur’s very own Brambrüesch mountain. Skiing here means around 30 km of slopes with no artificial snow. But even without the help of snow cannons, Brambrüesch always has reliable snow levels. Innovations and a huge range of leisure activities are available in nearby holiday resorts such as St. Moritz, Davos, Laax and Lenzerheide. If you prefer not to ski, why not take the kids to the igloo village at Stels in Prättigau for the weekend or relax at the hot springs and spas of Tamina Therme in Bad Ragaz.

Stubai Valley, Lech Valley Alps, Zillertal Arena or Kaisergebirge: these and many more skiing areas in Tyrol offer excellent winter sports amenities which are constantly monitored as part of a quality control scheme. It is no coincidence that Tyrol is known as the “Heart of the Alps”: after a day spent in the snow, you can party the nights away in Kitzbühel, Ischgl, Sölden or St. Anton.

Cross-country skiing enthusiasts will particularly appreciate the Olympic region of Seefeld, which is good enough to satisfy even the professionals. The wide range of excellent accommodation ensures you can enjoy a good night’s sleep, whether in a 5-star spa hotel or inexpensive guest-house.
