Küblis

Küblis lies in Graubunden’s Prättigau, very close to the winter-sports resorts of Klosters/Davos. The narrow gauge Landquart-Davos Railway accesses the village. Landmarks are the power station and Protestant church.
The municipality of Küblis lies in central Prättigau near where the Schanielabach flows into the Landquart. In addition to the ribbon village of Küblis in the valley, the district includes the hamlets of Pläviggin, Prada and Tälfsch. Küblis is the smallest municipality in area and probably also the youngest in the Prättigau. Under the influence of the Walsers resident in Klosters, the former neo-Latin municipality of Cuvlignas changed from the Rhaeto-Romanic language to German in the 15th to 16th centuries. The municipality was the poorest in the valley until the first negotiable road through the Prättigau was constructed from 1840 to 1850 and the railway built in 1888/1889.

The late-Gothic St. Nikolaus Protestant Church from the late 15th century is worth a visit. Its vaulted ceiling, nave and chancel are by renowned Austrian church builder Stefan Klein. Chancel windows by Augusto Giacometti were installed during renovations (1920/21). Kapfenstein Castle (Ober-Sansch), which fell into ruin in the 15th century, is a reminder of the past.

The Küblis power station of the Graubunden Power Plants (today Rätia Energie) has produced power in a combined river and storage power plant since 1922: In Klosters, water is used from the natural Davos Lake, the level of which is lowered by up to 28 metres. In a second stage, the water from the first stage, together with the water from the Vereina/Schlappin/St. Antönien catchment area is turbined into the Küblis power station. Thus the power station group retains the character of combined production between a storage and hydraulic power station.

Though not a significant tourist resort in itself, Küblis benefits from its proximity to the well-known centres of Klosters and Davos. In good snow conditions, this is the end of the 7.5 km, second-longest piste in the Parsenn ski area, leading from the top of the Weissfluh down into the valley, an altitude difference of over 2000 m. In summer and autumn, Küblis offers a wide range of hiking and mountain-biking tours.

Highlights

  • Villagescape – individual parts of the Küblis villagescape which were influenced by the Walsers are very attractive and well preserved.
  • Parsenn downhill run – in good snow conditions covering 7,5 km from the top of the Weissfluh to the valley at Küblis – a classic.
  • The Küblis power station of Graubunden Electricity (today Rätia Energie) has produced power at a combined hydraulic and storage power plant since 1922.
