Vals, with its 1000 inhabitants, is located at 1252 meters above sea level in a side valley of the Grisons Oberland, the Surselva. With its 152 km2 area Vals is the sixth largest municipality in Graubünden. Its wilderness and diversity in a confined space, the Valsertal owes the forces of water. In millions of years, ice and rain have formed the deeply cut mountain valley. At a temperature of 30 ° C, the only thermal spring in Graubünden gushes out of the ground in Vals. Also the famous mineral water "Valser" has its origin here.
