Favorite Spots in Flims

Overview

Flims is great in winter and summer, but my favorite time of year really is the summer and early fall. There are some wonderful hikes in this area for all different skill levels, and the mountain lakes (Caumasee and Crestasee) are incredible in their colors. Other activities include moutain biking, river rafting, and paragliding.

Quick Tips:

Don't miss out on the yearly mountain bike events, as well as the Fat Tire (an annual motorcycle gathering in August) on one of the Alps. A truly unique experience.

Best Way To Get Around:

In summer and in winter there are local buses that take you between the towns of Falera, Laax, and Flims. These are free of charge for all overnight guests.

This is one of my favorite places to have lunch when skiing in Flims. It has a unique charm and the food is absolutely delicious. Everything is cooked on an open fire. The choice is limited but there is something for everyone.

Poestli

Restaurant

Quote:
When you go to the Poestli make sure you reserve a table in the "Stuebli." There are only four tables in this cozy room. Try the "hot stone" for a special dining experience, and you can't go wrong with the Swiss specialty of Geschnetzeltes and Roesti. The food and atmosphere are a delight even, if the service is sometimes not as friendly as it could be.

Larnags

Restaurant

Quote:
This is a truly unique experience in winter. This restaurant is situated about a 15-minute walk from the base ski station in Laax, Murschetg. Take a romantic stroll up the ski slope before you arrive at the cozy restaurant, where the food is excellent and the atmosphere warm and friendly. After your meal, ask for a plastic garbage bag to sled down on. It will definitely be an evening to remember!

Spa

Attraction

Should you ever find yourself in Flims on a rainy, overcast day, spend a day at the Park Hotels Waldhaus Spa. The Spa opened in 2005, and is beautifully done with indoor and outdoor pools, several different sauna rooms, a relaxation room, a gym, and refreshment lounge.

This is a great mountain bike trip for all levels. From Flims, take the road to Fidaz, and continue on upwards to Bargis. It is all paved, and there is a steady but gradual climb all the way up. Once you reach the top, you reach a spectacular valley with a river where you can cool off. There is also a restaurant, where you can quench your thirst with a Rivella (a typically Swiss carbonated beverage).
