The Castell provokes confrontation with contemporary art. Well-known, high-level artists including Roman Signer, Pipilotti Rist, Peter Fischli/David Weiss, Carsten Höller, Martin Kippenberger and James Turrell among many others are represented in the Hotel Castell by their work, which is openly exhibited for viewing the whole year round..

The new Hotel Castell opened in December of 2004. With the new directors Bettina Plattner-Gerber and Richard Plattner, this imposing „sleeping beauty“ has become a modern and atmospheric hotel for anyone wanting to retreat and relax in surroundings invigorated by art and nature, and with endless options for activity.

James Turrell: Skyspace.

"James Turrell realized one of his skyspaces, rooms that are conceived to enable viewers to view the sky through an opening in the roof.

(sorry, no english translation)

The Castell thrones above the valley, directly adjacent to the Zuoz ski slopes, and has a beautiful view. Just below are cross-country ski trails in winter and the Zuoz-Madulain golf course in summer. Beyond that lies the Upper Engadine with all its attractive opportunities - from nature over culture to adventure. Alpine charm and cosmopolitan St.Moritz.
