Lenzerheide is the perfect resort for a relaxed alpine holiday. Here you can enjoy the the splendour of the mountains, pretty meadows with summer flowers and the glistening waters of Lake Heid. This most attractive region lies in a sunny valley and is very popular with walkers as there are more than 170km of marked trails and the views of the mountains and gorges are stunning. Families are particularly welcome to enjoy the fresh air, mountain streams and the swimming and watersports available on crystal clear Lake Heid. There are charming horse-drawn carriage rides from the village and nearby, the 500 year old ruins of Belfort Castle offer a traditional alpine herb garden. You can even visit a delightful alpine cheese dairy in the village of Parpan.
The pretty resort of Arosa lies on the other side of the mountains but has close links with Lenzerheide. During mid summer you can visit Arosa from Lenzerheide via a series of linked cable cars over the peaks - a most enjoyable day out.
