Hotel Waldhaus Sils

The Hotel Waldhaus has been distinguished with:
The Historic Hotels of Europe Customer Care Award 2013

11 km from bustling St. Moritz, in an unspoiled alpine village, a grand hotel with character and warmth, family owned and managed for five generations. Offering splendid views of gleaming lakes and impressive mountains, the Waldhaus sits above peaceful Sils-Maria like a fairy-tale castle, amidst lovely walking and hiking trails and with excellent downhill and cross-country skiing close at hand. An architectural landmark with a proud history, five-star ranking, 140 rooms, 230 beds and a staff of 150, the Waldhaus is grand, but also playful and relaxed. Behind its imposing façade, it is both vibrantly alive and comfortably old-fashioned. Families are very welcome, too, and a brand-new spa adds a contemporary touch.

      “SILS I. E.” (SILS IM ENGADIN, CALLED “SEGL” IN ROMANSH) is 7 miles/ 10 km southwest of St. Moritz in the Swiss canton of Graubünden.

      Our nearest train station is St. Moritz¹. Our driver will be happy to meet you there, free of charge, if you can tell us your arrival time in advance.

      ¹There is a Waldhaus hotel (‘house in the woods’) in St. Moritz as well. It's a good and lively place, but it's not ours, and there is no connection; so don't be confused!

      Arriving from the north and west

      BY CAR: take freeway from Zurich (or Lake Constance area) past CHUR and follow the signs for St. Moritz and the Julier Pass. After the pass, do not turn left (St. Moritz), but right (“Maloja”). The turnoff for Sils-Maria comes before Maloja. Driving time from Zurich: approx. 3 hours.

      ALTERNATE ROUTE to avoid the pass: at Landquart just before Chur, turn left to KLOSTERS and the VEREINA tunnel (car shuttle by train), tel. +41 81 288 37 37, Vereina. After the tunnel, it’s 55 km/ 35 mi. past St. Moritz to Sils. Driving time from Zurich: approx. 3 1/2 hours.

      Usually change trains in Chur => Albula (in exceptional cases in Landquart => Klosters/ Vereina). The Rhaetian Railway (RhB) Albula line Chur-St. Moritz is one of the most scenic and technologically most interesting lines in Europe. In 2008 the RhB’s Albula and Bernina lines received UNESCO World Heritage recognition, only the third train line to be considered “universally outstanding”. www.rhb.ch
