Davos is one of Europe's highest alpine resorts sitting at over 1500m. Home to the world famous Economic Forum held annually each winter, it is more of a town than a resort, stretched out along the valley.
The town is not chocolate box alpine scenery but has a wide range of hotels from Hard Rock to Intercontinental and is home to an impressive array of restaurants, shopping and activities to do when not hitting the slopes.
Ii has two parts: Davos Platz and Davos Dorf. Platz is most convenient for the majority of hotels and shops, while Dorf is the best base for accessing the slopes. There’s an efficient ski bus service however, so getting from one to the other presents little problem during the day and early evening.
'Davos Klosters Inside', the free guest programme, offers daily winter experiences accompanied by local insiders. Experience sunrise on the mountain, take a glimpse behind the scenes at the Piste and Rescue Service or take part in a torchlight hike.
Davos Klosters Inside consists of 30 experiences in the categories Sport & Adventure, Kids & Family, Visits & Excursions as well as Art & Culture, which are offered free of charge weekly from mid-December until mid-April.
The individual experiences can be booked at the guest advisory service two weeks before the event.
The ski area is extensive and links to nearby Klosters - the Royal's favorite, with altitudes between 1,124m and 2,844m, 57 ski lifts and 320km of slopes. You can choose between 6 different peaks here: The freestyle mountain Jakobshorn, the ski classic Parsenn and the two family-friendly mountains Madrisa and Rinerhorn are available to choose from. There is also the decelerated Schatzalp ski area and the freeride mountain Pischa.
Enjoy lunch at some great mountain restaurants as you work your way across the mountains.
