Full description

Davos is a charming Swiss winter and summer resort proudly nestled in the Swiss Alps, the eastern side of Switzerland.

Davos, mostly known as a city of knowledge and research plays a significant role in the international research segment, and is home to many international and local research institutes and academies. Numerous conferences and other meeting platforms are organised for information sharing and exchange training.

The most popular and major event is the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in January. The ceremony engages the world’s top leaders to shape global and regional agendas to overcome economic and societal problems arisen as a consequence of recent developments.

As well as its influence on the international, economic and political world, Davos is the highest city at 1560m in the Swiss Alps. This height provides snowy conditions all year round. In 1860, Davos' high altitude and extended hours of sunshine had established it as a health resort.

It is a great resort for summer and winter activities, health improvement, and sports. Davos’ ski resort is the largest one in Switzerland and the most remarkable, which contains five separate ski areas. It is a great place with ample choices for those fond of active leisure, who can go sailing, surfing, paragliding, mountain bikes, and much more other activity options.

The shopping in Davos is also worth a try, especially among the famous international brands with loads of emphasis on fashionable sportswear and sports equipment.

Winter sports lovers may find Davos an internationally recognised resort and wonderland. It is a metropolis for skiing and snowboarding fans, where they are offered 58 ski lifts, 300km of slopes, 75 km of cross-country ski trails, and Europe’s largest ice rink, among other attractions.

Summer in Davos is another taste of beautiful, natural ambience, involving hiking and mountain biking amid the stunning Alpine trails, but the special exercise is the swimming and sailing on Lake Davos.

The famous "Davos Klosters Sounds Good" event takes place in July when 15 bands gather together to dazzle the audience with an amazing performance. The Matterhorn Mountain is easily accessible from Davos by the connected scenic train ride of Glacier Express.
