The original birthplace of skiing in the Swiss Alps, Davos and Klosters between them are host to 6 different ski areas with over 300km of pistes. Also host to international events such as the World Economic Forum, visitors from Davos come from all over the world, and if you are one of them, make sure you don’t miss out on exploring these incredible mountains.
Davos is the higher of the two towns, located at just over 1500m and is actually the highest town in Europe, while Klosters sits at a lower 1205m. From the Jakobshorn, famous for freestyle and its extensive park to the large ski area of Parsenn, there is something for everyone from beginners, families and those who want to experience ski touring, hiking or snowshoeing.
Away from the slopes there is also a range of activities. Paragliding is popular for those wanting a thrill and can be done on or off skis. Ice hockey is a big deal in Davos, and they host the Spengler cup, a 93 year old international tournament over late December each year; if you fancy going, buying a ticket in advance is a must. A few local breweries have set up home here too; Monstein brewery is open for tours and tastings, or the local Blackpeak brewery supplies a lot of the bars and their beer is definitely worth a try.
