3. Make a holiday of it

Landquart’s prime position in Graubünden means you’re just steps away from beautiful countryside, so why not make the most of your trip and turn it into something more? Nearby you can find all kinds of activities and sightseeing, making for an unforgettable holiday. There’s the Rhaetian Railway, which has been running its seriously scenic 384-kilometre route for 125 years, plus numerous opportunities for exploring mountain villages and the surrounding Swiss Alps. Or for something altogether relaxing, head to Tamina Therme, a thermal spa where you can enjoy a sauna, massage or beauty treatment – or simply kick back and soak in the rejuvenating water.

4. Stay over in comfort

If you do turn your shopping trip into a holiday, make sure you set yourself up in one of Landquart’s recommended hotels. There’s something to suit every budget and taste, including the sleek and modern four-star Hotel ABC, a wellness paradise in the mountains at Waldhaus Flims and the traditional and beautiful Romantik Hotel Stern. Or for something truly unique, try Sleep Barrels, a series of 8,000-litre wine barrels converted into cosy but luxurious accommodation with stunning mountainside views.

5. You won’t feel like you’re shopping

Cast off any thoughts of a drab, unappealing shopping mall. Landquart Fashion Outlet has been designed to look and feel like a Swiss chalet village with a modern twist. The streets that make up the site are pedestrianised and free of cars, and alongside the bars and restaurants, there’s a playground to keep the children as happy as you’ll be with all your bargains – and then there are those incredible mountains that you can’t help but gaze at. It’s anything but a regular shopping trip.
