Feeling the sun on your skin. Breathing the fresh mountain air. Staring at the awe-inspiring mountain scenery. Tasting the savoury regional snacks. This is what summer feels like in Gargellen.


Here in Gargellen, the air is fresh and clear. The views are wider. The nights and days colder. At 1.430 metres above sea level, you’ll experience the mountain summer from its most beautiful side. Gargellen is located amidst impressive mountain ranges, directly at the Swiss border. The impressive summit Madrisa marks the end of the valley and thus is the origin of the hotel name. The valley separates two mighty mountain ranges: the Rätikon and the Silvretta. It stretches all the way to the Schlappiner Joch. For cars, Gargellen is the final destination – from there on, it’s all nature as far as the eye can see. The Madrisa tour is the hiking highlight, reaching the Swiss renowned health resort Klosters – and to top it off with a contrast, a visit to the pristine Walser village St. Antönien.


Some seek sports and action, others look for cultural inspiration and tranquillity. Any vacation in Gargellen is as individual as our guests. This region offers plenty of attractions – quiet and loud.
