Flims

Travel Guide
Flims

This picturesque village has excellent skiing and hiking alongside the magnificent lakes, mountains and valleys of the Graubünden region.

Flims is a low-key mountain village set in the shadow of the imposing Crap Sogn Gion. Discover extensive ski slopes and hiking trails bathed in glorious sunshine. Bask in immense natural beauty, from deep valleys to glacial lakes. Located in Switzerland’s Graubünden canton, Flims is famous as an Alps’ destination with a high likelihood of having snow.

Upon arrival, wander the village’s winding streets crisscrossed by a meandering river. Gaze in all directions to see green fields and rugged mountain peaks. Spot classic Swiss-style chalets and grandiose 19th-century masterpieces such as Waldhaus Flims Mountain Resort. Visit the hotel’s three museums, with exhibits from Belle-Époque artifacts to a crystal collection and work by famed architect Rudolf Olgiati.

On the village’s west side, gondolas travel to Laax Ski Resort. Home to 146 miles (235 kilometers) of alpine slopes, it incorporates the villages of Flims, Laax and Falera. The Flims area is notable for its network of cross-country skiing and winter hiking trails. Travel by lift to the Laax area for skiing and snowboarding on family-friendly slopes. Ride the piste from 9,902-foot-tall (3,018-meter) Vorab Glacier back toward Flims.

In summer, the Flims countryside is great for hiking and biking. From short walks to full-day hikes, find well-marked trails for all levels of athletic ability.

On an exceptionally sunny day, swim in deep blue lakes. Caumasee, Crestasee and Laaxersee are all about a 1-hour walk from the village. Visit Parc la Mutta, one of Switzerland’s biggest megalithic sites, with more than 30 enormous stones that were erected as a place of worship during the Middle Bronze Age.

Time your visit to coincide with cultural events including the Burton European Open, a snowboard competition held between January and March.

Flims is about a 90-minute drive from Zurich and well served by trains and buses. Get around on foot, bike or by public buses. Stay at hotels, guesthouse and self-catering apartments. Explore areas outside the village such as the Rhine Gorge, often called the Swiss Grand Canyon.
