Holiday resorts and holiday regions in Switzerland

Sils offers a wealth of cultural delights: you can walk in the footsteps of Mann, Hesse, Dürrenmatt, Chagall, Annemarie Schwarzenbach and Nietzsche at events such as the Sils Hesse days, Nietzsche Colloquium and Art & Literary Tours. These are summer outdoor events, accompanied by regular performances of classical music by guest artists from around the world. Or discover on your own, the Nietzsche House, the unique Biblioteca Engiadinaisa, the Robbi Museum and the Fex-Crasta church with its magnificent frescoes from the 16th century.
 
The Upper Engadine is a perfect setting for Sils, whether you look out over the mountain peaks from the top of Corvatsch, or travel into Val Fex or head for Maloja – no theatrical performance can equal that of Mother Nature – in all seasons. Chic elegance is never far away either: in just 15 minutes you can be in St. Moritz with its exclusive shopping, exciting night-life and international events - from White Turf and Snow and Symphony to skeleton and bob-sleigh competitions.


In summer and winter, for individual, family or group travel, for relaxation or active leisure: Sils is not only uniquely surrounded by the majestic alpine grandeur of the Upper Engadine but is also an ideal base for excursions to Chiavenna and Lake Como or other destinations in nearby Italy. But actually there's no need to go anywhere else: there's plenty to do right here.


350 km of alpine ski runs, 180 km of permanently tended cross-country ski trails, 150 km of winter hiking trails, 56 lifts, more than 30 mountain restaurants, a regular lake cruise service in summer, 500 km of summer trails, 150 km of marked mountain bike trails, 220 km of marked Nordic walking trails, three golf-courses (one 6-hole, one 9-hole and two 18-hole), various winter sports schools, skating and curling rinks (outdoor curling), sailing and surfing schools, kite surfing and snow kiting - Sils has something for everyone, especially those who wish to unwind and relax in harmony with nature.


Sils lies at N 46º43.11', E 9º75.99' in one of Europe's most beautiful countries, in one of Switzerland's most authentic cantons in one of Graubünden's most beautiful regions, in one of the Upper Engadine's most magical places.
