Davos in short

  • Ski resort with many facilities
  • Six ski areas to choose from
  • Great off-piste skiing

Originally Davos was known as a thermal spa health resort for patients suffering from tuberculosis, but the town quickly became a major ski resort with the opening of the Bolgens chairlift in 1934. Thanks to the many snow parks and halfpipes, Davos is particularly popular among snowboarders.

Davos in Switzerland is mainly German-speaking, but if you don't speak German, you can make yourself understood thanks to a very friendly welcome in the ski resort and up on the slopes! With the neighboring ski resort of Klosters, Davos is connected to 6 ski areas, representing more than 215 km of pistes. Regardless of the urban character and lively feel in Davos, cross-country skiers and hikers looking for peace and quiet can appreciate the tranquility of the surrounding forests. There are a large number of good apres-ski bars and restaurants including the Postli Club, the Tonic Piano bar and the Cabanna club so those looking for good apres-ski and nightlife will not be disappointed on their ski holidays in Davos.
