«Bad weather» ideas

To not standing in the rain when the weather is «bad».

Whether you prefer to spend your time indoors in bad weather or don't let the rain deter you from going out in the fresh air, the Lenzerheide holiday region offers plenty of opportunities for less sunny days. Let yourself be inspired.

Sporty activities

If you don't want to miss out on sporty activities in the rain or storm, the Lenzerheide tennis hall or the Ap'n Daun climbing centre in Chur are the right addresses for you. 

The Foxtrail, the exciting scavenger hunt in the Swiss mountains, can be played all year round - even in rain, fog and wind. Dress warmly, there are tricky puzzles and lots of movement in nature waiting for you.

Shopping, cafés and restaurants

How do you prefer to spend your time in the rain or snow? How about spending the day shopping and in one of the many cafes and restaurants?

The numerous sports shops with their broad selection leave nothing to be desired. In addition, you will discover fashion, decorations and handmade treasures in the small boutiques such as La Palausa. In the bakeries and village shops you will find a large number of local products - from alpine cheese and Bündner meat to delicious nut tarts and chocolates. If you are looking for a bit of alpine city feeling, the old town of Chur is worth a shopping trip.

The Antiques Café in Lenz or one of the other cafés in the Lenzerheide holiday region will spoil you with coffee and cake during the day. The numerous restaurants also serve a wide variety of culinary delights on the mountain or in the village, from the Gilde Restaurant to «rustic» Bündner specialities or fondue and raclette in the Bündnerstübli. In the evening, the bars and lounges in Lenzerheide, Valbella and Parpan tempt you.
