I took a train ride from St Moritz to Klosters, twice changing trains at Samedan and Sagliains before I arrived late in the evening. If St Moritz and Davos are too chic and glitzy for you, Klosters (1,200m) offers you a much more quiet atmosphere. The town is simply as good as it gets when comes to rustic rural settings of the Prättigau, or the "meadow valley".

I spent two nights in Klosters mainly because it is one of the cheapest places to stay in Graubünden with easy access to other main attractions of the Upper and Lower Engadin such as St Moritz, Davos, Scuol and the Swiss National Park.

The small village is indeed peaceful and relatively car-free. Towering above are a number of ski slopes. They were closed for the summer. It has been said that skiing in Klosters is comparable to that of Davos, hence your winter trips can cost a bit less if you wish to give its ski slopes a run for your money.

My major beef was probably the food availability. Most eateries were closed as early as 6pm. As I arrived back at Klosters from my day-trip tours of Davos and Scuol, I barely could found any place to eat. Luckily I ran into some sort of a “co-op” mini market that has a small restaurant for some quick bites.
