Outdoor activities and sports

There are five ski areas around Davos, all easily accessible without a car. To use them, you have to buy a ski pass. You can bring your own gear or rent everything at a local sports shop. The around 100km of perfectly groomed cross-country trails are free to use and can be accessed from almost anywhere in Davos. Also for cross-country, you can use your own gear or rent whatever you need in town. Winter walking is a gentle and beautiful approach to enjoy the snowy landscapes; almost 160km of tracks are waiting for you. Tobogganing is good fun, not only for children! Take a cable car up one of the mountains and enjoy the fast ride down, or walk up to a cosy hut for a coffee and bring your sledge for the way down. After all that fresh air, you might crave a warm pool or sauna – the pools are right next to the conference centre in the middle of town.

The Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Museum in Davos houses the World’s largest collection of Kirchner’s works, it is located in the centre of Davos and only a few minutes walk from the conference centre. There are also further small museums and galleries well worth a visit. If you need something to read, visit the library, which also has a whole floor full of books for children. The event calendar lists all that happens around Davos, and if you have a little more time, consider taking a trip with the “little red one”, the Rhaetian Railways, boasting a number of spectacular bridges, viaducts and tunnels in a breath-taking alpine environment.


Choose from the many different options to eat well and find a restaurant that suits you. Make sure to book your table – winter season is a busy time in Davos.
