Where Is Klosters?
Klosters (the official name is Klosters-Serneus) is in the Prattigau/Davos district, and it is a municipality in the Swis Canton of Graubunden.
It is an internationally known ski resort that is located about 100 miles from Zurich, which is the closest international airport. The transfer time is about an hour and a half. The municipality is about 6.2 miles from Davos. It is a world famous ski location, and the slopes can be easily accessed by a big cable car. It has a population about 3,900.
Being so close to Zurich, it is a favorite spot for tourists who just get off the plane there and want to get to a beautiful ski resort as quickly as possible.
Klosters is initially noted in 1222, and it is called ecclesiam sancti lacobi. In 1436 it was mentioned again, and it was called zuo dem Closter at that time.
Klosters-Serneus has a total area, when it was measured in 2006, of about 75 square miles. Out of this total area, about 25% is put to use for agriculture, while about 19% is covered in forest. Out of the remainder of the land, a little over 1% is settled (roads or buildings) and the rest of it (about 55%) is non-productive land (mountains, glaciers, or rivers).
Klosters is located in the only municipality in the Prattigau/Dvaos district, and in the Klosters sub-district. It was first established in 1865 with the merger of the previously independent municipalities of Klosters and Serneus. Klosters-Serneus was just called Klosters until 1973. It is the uppermost and last village in the valley of Prattigau. It is comprised of the Serneurs and Klosters villages, and it is made up of the sections of Monbiel, Auja, Selfranga, Dorf, and Platz.
