    If you like ski, this is a nice place to come to. Many pistes ti ski and practise wintersports. You are looking for a place where there are a little less tourists than in the more well-known and famous towns. But still this is a good place. They even say, it is a good place to learn skiing, but I cannot tell you wheter this is right or wrong, I just do not like skiing!

    The whole church is made out of stone, as usually churches are made out of wood and stone.

    Very nice building.

    Very good located is the Thomas Platter Stube in Grächen. Unfortunatelly there are no windows in the back of that place, where you'd have a perfect view to the mountains.

    Favorite Dish: No question: Apfelstrudel with Vanilla Sauce!! Delicious!!

    Not the one we had, but almost!

    You can drive up to Grächen, but the town itself is carfree. Which means, that you have to park your car at the beginning of the town.

    Later on you can walk around town. Everything is in walking distance.

Grächen Local Customs

    This is a local custom, that is mostly practised in Austria, but I found also the masks in Switzerland. The masks are worn to chase the winter-ghosts. They are worn in february to allow the spring to finally come, when the dark winterghosts are gone. But to chase a winterghost, you have to to look furious and ferocios--- more than them.
    There are many legends ranking around the klabeif... in our times now they come with St Niclaus. But the custom in itself is very ols, in fact it is pre-christianism.
    Have fun while watching the Klaubeif and feel the soft shudder running up your neck.

    Behind the church, you'll find those Graves. All of them have the same wood cross, because they are forced to do that.

    Also, you need to put a picture onto the cross. Kinda cruel, don't you think?
