Studying in Switzerland - especially in the fantastic mountains of Graubünden - means rigorous, high-quality education...and lots of fun, nature and lifestyle perks. As the number one tourism canton in Switzerland, Graubünden is ideal for getting to know the tourism business from the ground up.
Many Graubünden residents and visitors enjoy the summer half of the year with sports such as biking, hiking and golfing. The raging river in the Rhine Gorge is just as fascinating as the Ela Park with its mountain streams and stone floors. Motorcyclists appreciate the popular mountain pass roads San Bernardino, Splügen, Julier, Lukmanier, Oberalp, which meander past meadows full of alpine herbs and bell-bearing cows. And if you experience your first alpine glow at sunrise or sunset, you won't want to leave anytime soon.
