North-East Graubünden is a region in the canton of Graubünden which includes the ski town Davos and nearby villages of Klosters and Küblis. Davos, the largest alpine town in Europe, is where skiing really began in Switzerland.

The town of Landquart marks one end of this region. This is where the Prättigau begins: the valley of the river which is named Landquart too. From Landquart you can start the 3-day hike to Klosters, in the center of the region: the Prättigauer Hohenweg (high path). This is where you can enter the valley of the river Landwasser. The biggest town here is Davos. This valley ends near Filisur in the Albula valley.

The region is also home to the Marschlins Castle, “Swiss heritage site of national significance”, and also the ruins of Falkenstein Castle both near the village of Landquart.

The world’s longest meter gauge railway tunnel, the Vereina Tunnel, is an alternative transport option for drivers between the Prättigau and the Lower Engadine region. It offers a car train, when the Flüela Pass (between Davos and Susch) is closed in the winter.
