Overview

Nestling in a unique mountain scenery, Davos is the highest town in Europe and also one of its largest winter sports areas. The ski resort offers varied slopes ranging from an altitude of 1,560 to 2,844 m. There are numerous ski lifts taking skiers and snowboarders up to the mountain tops. The ski resort Davos is a winter sports metropolis and almost an eldorado for snowboard and downhill fans as well as Nordic skiers, ice sports enthusiasts and winter walkers. Five sledge runs of a length between 2.5 and 8.6 kilometres guarantee toboggan fun in the region. A ski holiday in Davos has plenty to offer to night owls, too. There are many opportunities to go out: rustic mountain inns as well as restaurants, night clubs, hotel bars, a theatre, a concert hall and a casino.

Zurich Airport is located 150 km from Davos. The airline ‘Swiss’ links Zurich with all major European cities.

Airport transfers:

From Zurich, you can reach Davos in less than two hours by car: A13 motorway towards Chur – exit Landquart onto the national road N28 – continue to Klosters or Davos.
