About Davos

This long-drawn-out town in the Landwasser valley is renowned above all as a conference centre, and also as a major winter and summer sports centre with an international flavour and a huge range of activities. Its showpiece is its modern Conference Centre, which hosts the World Economic Forum WEF (nearly) every year.

In the centre of Davos, visitors will find a wide range of accommodation and excellent shopping, with numerous boutiques, cafés and restaurants. At night, too, there’s plenty of entertainment, with bars, discos and a casino. Davos is also the headquarters of the well-known Weissfluhjoch/Davos Federal Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research.


Davos is a winter sports metropolis for skiing and snowboarding fans from all over the world. At altitudes between 1124 and 2844 m, guests will find 58 ski lifts, 300 km of slopes, 75 km of cross-country ski tracks, over 150km snowshoe and winter hiking trails, two artificial ice rinks with ice hockey, ice skating and curling fields are available. And no fewer than eight sledging runs to have fun on! The six Davos-Klosters skiing areas of Parsenn/Gotschna, Jakobshorn, Pischa, Madrisa, Rinerhorn and Schatzalp/Strela have been brought together into one vast winter sports arena. For skiing fanatics, the mecca is Parsenn area which connects up Davos with the neighbouring resort of Klosters. The Jakobshorn, on the other hand, is the in place for freestylers and party guests with half-pipes and cosy après-ski huts.

For a quieter time, take a ride by horse-drawn sledge into the snowy side valleys, or experience the Davos mountains with 111 km of beautifully prepared winter footpaths and snow-shoe trails.

Davos Klosters Inside – the free guest program

During some 100 winter days, the guests can benefit from local insiders providing free and exclusive winter adventures on a daily basis. This is the offer: Davos Klosters Inside


The cable-cars on the Jakobshorn (2590 m), Parsenn including the Weissfluhjoch und (2844 m), Rinerhorn (2490 m) and Schatzalp/Strela provide access to three hiking areas with a total of 700 km of marked footpaths. The same network of trails is also available to mountain bikers – the “share the trails” philosophy is put into active practice here. Davos Klosters is among the most attractive mountain-bike destinations in Switzerland. Enduro bikers will be particularly happy trying their hand at the Bahnen tour, for example, an adventure with a total ascent of 10,000 meters.

Anyone seeking rest and relaxation amid unspoilt nature should head off on foot, by bike or by horse-drawn carriage up the romantic side valleys of Sertig, Dischma or Flüela.

For a change of scene, visit the Davos Lake with its swimming area and a sailing and surfing center. In addition, there are opportunities for hang-gliding and paragliding and mountain bike and inline skating routes. Davos is also the starting point for excursions on the famous Glacier and Bernina Express trains.
