Graubünden holidays - Enjoy wonderful alpine scenery
While staying at holiday homes in Graubünden, you can enjoy marvellous activities such as travelling by rail through the many charming villages. You can either journey via the Albula Bernina railway line, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or the Glacier Express. Both these routes will see you traversing some unforgettable alpine scenery in Switzerland. The views are equally stunning in the summer, the colours vivid green and blue, and the winter, when the mountains are snow-topped and glistening white. We also recommend you travel to sites such as the medieval castles and ruins in the Domleschg area, or the Tarasp Castle, which are both definitely worth a view if you have an avid interest in history.
