Klosters is situated in the Graubunden mountains just 15 minutes along the road from Davos, although its village feel contrasts sharply with the bustle in Davos. The village has two centres: Klosters Platz is the main focus partly due to its rail connections with Davos; while Klosters Dorf is smaller and lies at the foot of the gondola to the Madrisa skiing area. The resort shares its skiing area with Davos, and the combined area gives you 320km of piste served by 53 lifts. Peaking at an altitude of 2845m and with 40% of the area covered by snowmaking, your holiday comes with a snow sure guarantee. Read more...
The accommodation in the area is varied with hotels in Klosters, as well as apartments and traditional wood-clad chalets in Klosters.

In the resort there are great places to eat, including Michelin-starred food as well as exotic options including asian fusion. If apres-ski is what you're after, then bars both on and off the slopes will catch your eye, and if you're looking to continue the party into the night then nightclubs are on offer.
