The Prättigau, in the canton of Graubünden (Grisons), Switzerland, is the geographical region consisting of the main valley of the river Landquart and the valleys of its side-rivers and creeks, which drains into the Alpine Rhine in the village of the same name, and is on its upper end home to the world-famous ski resorts of Klosters.
The Prättigau is a popular tourist destination for winter and summer activities, including downhill and cross country skiing, tobogganing and hiking.
Traditionally, towns in the Prättigau were reliant on the lumber industry, although the income from tourism has largely replaced that.
