Sils is composed by the districts of Sils Maria and Sils Baselgia and is situated between Lake Sils and Lake Silvaplana, with mountains towering on the other two sides - a truly special place in the Alps.
Friedrich Nietzsche spent a few summers in the centre of Sils Maria and worked on some of his works. The house he lived in during that time is now a museum where there are numerous exhibits on Nietzsche's life and work as well as a changing exhibition. The medieval church of San Lurench is another historical sight in the village.
You can take a nice walk around the Chastè peninsula in summer and winter and to wonder at the Silsersee lake and the impressive mountain scenery. Sils is also the start of the quiet, almost car-free Fex Valley, which is perfect for extensive hikes in a natural landscape.
Sils is simply a uniquely beautiful destination. Choose a holiday flat and set off soon.
