Klosters and Surrounding Area



Klosters originated around 1220 A.D. with the founding of the St. Jacob and St. Christopher monastery, hence the name “Klosters”. About 200 years later, German-speaking Walser (people from the canton of Valais) settled in Schlappin. The Walsers went on to inhabit the whole area of the Prättigau and the typical Prättigau dialect is still evident today. It was not until 1870 that Klosters began to attract tourists with the construction of the first hotels and the Rhaetian railway line from Landquart to Klosters.

Klosters is located at an altitude of 1200 meter and has largely kept its idyllic village charm with the wooden chalets and fascinating mountain setting. It is one of the most popular holiday resorts in the Alps and attracts guests from around the world.
