800 years of Klosters

Walser pride & world stories

The first mention of the «ecclesiam sancti Iacobi» (Church of St. Jacob) in 1222 marked the founding of the village of Klosters. 800 years later, we look back on the formative Walser culture and the transformation from an inconspicuous village at the back of Prättigau to a popular Alpine holiday resort with international renown.

Under the title «800 Years of Klosters 2022 - Walser Pride and World Stories», a varied year-round programme of activities and events will be offered as part of the anniversary. The year 2022 takes everyone with a connection to Klosters on an exciting journey through time.
