Discover boutique hotels in Flims, Switzerland
When to go
Arrive from mid-January to mid-March for optimum ski conditions.
PlanesFly into Zürich (AKA Kloten) Airport, which is closest to the hotel. Carriers run flights here directly from all over Europe (just over an hour’s journey from London). Those arriving from the US will usually stop in Europe; if travelling from Asia and Australasia connect via the UAE (or catch a direct flight from Hong Kong).
TrainsFrom the airport (Zürich Flughafen), hop on the U-Bahn train to Zürich Hauptbahnhof, then from there catch a train to Chur – you’ll pass panoramas of mountains and lakes as you go. The bus terminus is at Chur station, from which you can ride all the way to Flims Dorf (the stop just outside the resort complex). Book tickets in advance and you’ll get a handy QR code to cover your whole journey.
AutomobilesThere’s a 90-minute drive (or longer) from Zürich airport to the hotel. The Alpine scenery makes it all the merrier, but remember to pack snow tires and the like. You can easily travel to and from runs by bus from the hotel, but acquire some wheels if off-piste exploring is your goal, or if you’ve packed plenty of gear.
