Graubünden Tourism

Mountain village Guarda

The homeland of Schellen-Ursli

In summer, tour buses bring more tourists to Guarda than the village has inhabitants – and that's including the 26 goats, 256 cows and 21 horses. The reason for that is straightforward: Firstly, Guarda is one of the most beautiful areas in the country and secondly, the story of Schellen-Ursli comes from here; the boy with the pointed cap who won over far more than just the children of Switzerland. Only 190 people actually live in Guarda.
