On a warm weekend in June, the mountain resort of Lenzerheide fills up with car enthusiasts that come here from close and far. Everyone wants to see shiny classics rolling and hear engines roaring.
This year, the 5th Lenzerheide Motor Classics will present around 110 vintage cars and historic automobiles built until 1993, as well as 20 unique racing motorbikes and trailers. The race is rather more about the looks and performance (perhaps, also about noise) than about speed.
The nostalgic vehicles and the beautiful setting with a mirroring lake and the mountains of Graubünden make a picture perfect combination from any angle of the racing track. During the weekend, the drivers will spend about 2 hours on the 2.45 km long track. It is 100 km of driving pleasure for them and a feast to the spectators’ eyes.
The entrance is free of charge both for the racing track and the paddock where you can catch a glimpse of the vehicles from close up.

Insider’s tip: Stay at the Maiensäss Hotel Guarda Val
For an overnight stay, go vintage all the way and try the Maiensäss Hotel Guarda Val which will instantly win you over with its rustic charm. It is built in up to 300 year old huts and barns and is a romantic love affair between the old and the modern.
She is into travelling, photography, handicrafts and online marketing. She doesn't spend the weekends home, and she will never say "no" to an invitation to go hiking in the mountains.
