Romansh culture is very much alive in this beautiful patrician village, with its impressive core of grand old houses. The family ski area of Zuoz, with its two chair lifts (one of which is particularly child-safe) and three T-bars, promises plenty of variety, while the children’s ski school with its ski kindergarten offers the ideal terrain for practicing. Other top attractions include the Sur En cross-country ski centre, the many idyllic winter walking trails and the highest coffee-roasting facility in Europe.
Even in this tradition-conscious village, with its 1,200 inhabitants, time has not stood still; thanks to its friendly-family ski area, with its two chair lifts and three ski lifts, its children's ski school with ski kindergarten, the Sur En Cross Country Ski Centre and its idyllic winter hiking paths, this picturesque resort is also perfectly equipped to cater to the needs of tourists in future. Vibrant, modern dabs of colour are provided by the Hotel Castell, with its sensuous hamam and original Dorta restaurant.
Culture vultures will be enchanted by the historic village centre and the proud patrician buildings, such as the Chesa Planta, which are particularly well preserved. Lovers of seductive aromas will find themselves in heaven at the highest-lying coffee-roasting plant in Europe – and can also learn more about the history of coffee at the Caferama Badilatti. Families feel at home simply because here children find the most important thing of all in unlimited abundance – an intact winter wonderland abounding in surprises.
