A land of green meadows and fertile valleys punctuated by Alpine ridges and crystal blue skies, Graubünden is Switzerland’s largest and most eastern bound Canton. Continuously inhabited for over 11,000 years, Graubünden is an ancient place rich with history and folklore, and possessing a cultural patchwork that combines a unique blend of traditions from German and Italian to Romansh. With its pristine Alpine landscapes, Graubünden is Switzerland’s capital for holiday jet-setting, with the luminous St. Moritz set as its crown jewel. Originally a Roman settlement, its Romansh communities provide an authentic portrait of the ancient people and traditions that have shaped the region for centuries. Adding both color and flavor to the cultural makeup of the canton, its many time-honored festivals held throughout the year are quintessentially local, while its varied cuisine is an extension of Graubünden’s three regional identities. A fabled land of enormous natural beauty, it is no wonder that it served as the setting for Johanna Spyri’s beloved novel “Heidi”, whose description of the scenery with its magical essence, would become the emblematic image of Switzerland for readers around the world.
