Holidays To Flims - Graubünden

A stunning world of forests and mountains, lakes and rivers

Visitors to Flims will find a beautiful world of verdant mountains and turquoise lakes in the midst of dense forests. With 250km of walking trails, this is truly a place to immerse yourself in the alps and enjoy the pure mountain air. Cable cars from Flims and from the neighbouring resorts of Laax and Falera will transport you to this beautiful natural world.

From your Flims hotel you can visit idyllic Lake Cauma. Here you can swim, relax on the beach and enjoy a meal in the restaurant at the water's edge. The Crestasee is another beauty spot to reach on foot and is famous for its crystal clear water. The Trutg dil Flem riverside walking trail is recommended, starting at a magnificent waterfall and following the path the River Flem has carved all the way down to the centre of the village. You can walk or take public transport to the River Rhine itself and the spectacular sight of the Rhine Gorge, which is often known as Switzerland's Grand Canyon.
