Davos is Europe’s largest mountain resort and as such offers all the modern amenities of a small town, while nestling in a landscape of unspoilt natural beauty and mountain splendour. This long and narrow town lies along the floor of a mountain valley and is composed of two linked parts (Davos-Dorf and Davos-Platz) with a lively main street offering a good variety of shops and restaurants. The resort has been welcoming visitors for over 150 years, thanks to its rejuvenating fresh air and spa facilities. Today you can take advantage of a wide variety of activities including golf, tennis, biking or simply a pleasant walk along to Lake Davos.
The beautiful mountains tower over Davos on two sides with the Pischa, Jakobshorn and Rinerhorn to the south, whilst Schatzalp, Parsenn and Madrisa range to the north. There are excellent cable car and funicular connections from the town to help you easily access the mountains and enjoy some unforgettable scenic alpine walks and delightful lunches.
Wiesen is an idyllic mountain village on a sunny terrace within the boundaries of the Ela National park and just a short bus or train journey to the centre of Davos. Wiesen is therefore an alternative for people looking for a quiet holiday hidden away in an unspoilt corner amongst the high Alps. There are over 100km of signposted and varied hiking trails for easy walks to challenging mountain trails. Hotel guests in both resorts benefit from the FREE Davos Inclusive Card during the summer months, allowing you to fully explore the local mountains.
