Holiday resort Parpan

Winter sports. Summer sports. Cheese resort.

In Parpan, the experience of nature comes first. In summer, Parpan is an ideal starting point for hikes and bike tours. In winter, 225 kilometers of ski slopes are at your feet. You can easily reach the Proschieri ski lift and the Heimberg chairlift on foot. Especially casual - the extensive cross-country ski trail network of the vacation region leads right through the village. If the blades are calling, you can skate or play ice hockey on the natural ice field. Or do you know curling? If you need anything, you can find everything in the local stores. And if you don't want to leave, hotels and restaurants are looking forward to your visit.

Summer in Parpan

What motivates more than a clear goal? Search for local culinary manufactories by bike or hiking trail. The Parpan alpine cheese dairy, the Tschugga show dairy and the Brügger meat factory open their doors to you. You can also find all products at the Parpan sunday market.

The ground-breaking ceremony for the new Parpan cheese dairy was held in autumn 2015. In the winter months, a dairy with glass fronts and an open and spacious auditorium was built in the old and traditional stables of the Plantahof Alp. Visitors are offered the opportunity to look over the shoulders of the Senn, to gain exciting insights into the world of Alpine cheese and to taste the final product.

Approximately 230,000 liters of milk from the Alps Stätz, Kötzigerberg and Plantahof are brought together each year in the alpine dairy Parpan. The processing of alpmilch locally not only creates local jobs but also enables the direct sale of Alpine cheese to guests and locals.

Parpan Tourism Association

The Parpan Tourist Association was founded in 1905. Its primary task has always been to take care of Parpan's guests, to organise activities for them and also to provide appropriate infrastructure. This can be read in the chronicle that can be found on this website. Until 2019, TVP membership was reserved for residents of the Parpan municipality.

At the General Assembly in June 2019, the members decided, on the proposal of the Board, to allow membership to all persons interested in tourism in Parpan (see registration form). The TVP Board is currently working on projects that will be realised in the near future and that will benefit guests and residents.

Would you also like to support us? Send us the registration form and the board will decide about an admission.
