Museums and libraries

If you need a breather from the mountain, then you should visit an exhibition or a museum, and not just during bad weather. Our region has a lot to offer for culture lovers and those with a thirst for knowledge.

The Yellow House

The Yellow House is, in fact, white. This is not the only surprise, however. Shortly before his death in 1995, the architect Rudolf Olgiati bequeathed part of his collection of cultural treasures to the town of Flims on the condition that the "Yellow House", situated in the centre of the town, be renovated according to his wishes, namely that it be "painted white from top to bottom". In 1997, his son Valerio Olgiati received the architectural contract to redesign the house from the town of Flims.

Since then, the interior of the house no longer resembles its original role as a greengrocer's shop and place of residence. On the exterior, the completely chipped plaster immediately catches the eye. Inside, a real structural work of art is created through the unconventional arrangement of beams and pillars. It's well worth a visit, as the building which has won several architectural awards also houses various different types of exhibitions.

Rätisches Museum

The Rätisches Museum is located at Haus Buol in the old town of Chur. The baroque patrician house was built in 1675 by Freiherr Paul von Buol zu Strassberg und Rietberg (1634–1697), a member of the ruling class of the Three Leagues. The interior of the building features a large flight of stairs. This serves to connect the cellar vault, the ground floor with the driveway, two grand floors and the servants' area and attic area.
