Davos

Travel Guide
Davos which includes mountains, snow and a small town or village

One of the oldest resorts in Europe, this bustling town offers some of the best sports facilities in the world. 

Davos Klosters is a lively mountain resort known for its excellent skiing and diverse après-ski entertainment. At 5,118 feet (1,560 meters), Davos Klosters is touted as the highest city in Europe. It attracts crowds year-round with its outdoor activities, which are complemented by extensive shopping and dining options. Visit in the summer for alpine hiking and mountain biking, or in the winter to enjoy skiing and skating.

Head for the slopes at Parsenn-Weissfluh , which is widely considered to be one of the best ski areas in Europe. Other popular winter sports you can enjoy in Davos Klosters include cross country skiing, sledding, skating and curling. Visit between December and February to skate on Natureisbahn, said to be the largest natural ice rink on the continent.

In the summer, spend time exploring the 280-mile (451-kilometer) network of hiking and cycling paths found around Davos Klosters. The paths are well-marked, taking you through alpine meadows and forests, highland pastures, mountain peaks and remote hamlets. In summer, enjoy free travel during the day on all open mountain railways when you stay at least one night in Davos Klosters.

Year-round, Davos Klosters offers historical and cultural attractions. Learn about the history of skiing at the Wintersportmuseum. Home to an interesting collection of well-preserved sleds, bindings, skis and other equipment, the museum explores the evolution of winter sports from their early origins through to the present day.

Take a look in the fascinating Kirchner Museum, which houses the world’s largest collection of works by painter Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. A forerunner of the expressionist movement, Kirchner moved to Davos Klosters in 1918 and painted some wonderful depictions of the area.

Check out the late-Gothic Kirche St. Johann (Church of St. John the Baptist), which is located just east of the train station in Davos Platz. The church’s nave was completed in the 13th century, and in the choir you’ll see a window by Augusto Giacometti. Be sure to explore the adjoining Rathaus (Town Hall) to see its paneled 16th-century Grosse Stube (Great Chamber).

Davos Klosters can be reached by train from Zurich, with a connection in Landquart. On weekends during the ski season, you can also take a bus directly from Zurich Airport. Transport on local buses within Davos Klosters is free for Swiss Pass and Guest Card holders.
