The Sertig (1860 m) is a side valley of the Landwasser valley near Davos in the canton of Grisons in Switzerland, which is traversed by the Sertigbach. The hamlet lying in the Sertig (Sertig Dörfli and sand) and the associated farms form the neighborhood Sertig, which belongs to the fraction community Davos Frauenkirch. The Clavadel neighborhood, which is located at the entrance to the Sertig, belongs to the Davos Platz fraction.
Through the valley leads a narrow, low-traffic road, which is well suited for bicycle tours. All year round, a postbus travels to the valley. In Sertig Dörfli there is a listed Reformed church, two restaurants, the "mountain guides" and the "Walserhuus" (Walserhaus), the latter is a modern middle class hotel. From there you can hike north to a waterfall at the foot of the Sertig Pass.
From the Sertig Valley you can also take demanding mountain tours, for example via the Sertigpass (2,739 m above sea level) to Bergün / Bravuogn or the Engadine. Another tour leads across the Sertigpass and the Scalettapass into parallel Dischma.
In winter, horse-drawn sleigh rides are offered from Davos-Platz Station to the Sertigtal. It also leads a trail through the valley.

Sertig-Dörfli is a small Walser settlement, which still has a closed, well-preserved townscape, in a photogenic location in front of the massif of Piz Ducan.Side Note: The small church has world fame, at least for people with model railroad socialization. It is perhaps one of the best selling kits and probably graces thousands of model railway layouts, there is hardly any without it.
