Davos

.
Davos, located in the heart of the Alps at an altitude of 1,560 m, is famous for its toothpaste-fresh air and the World Economic Forum (held in the last week of January each year). Davos is a 4 km-long strip beside a train line and a river. It comprises two contiguous areas, each with a train station: Davos-Platz and Davos-Dorf. Surrounded on all sides by idyllic countryside and breathtaking mountain scenery is Davos, Europe's highest town. In summer, the opportunities for hiking and mountain-biking are excellent!. Different mountain railways take you to 700 km of mountain trails and hiking paths. The offers are suitable for everyone, from unhurried walkers and sporty, gregarious hikers to ambitious alpinists

How to get there: From Chur it takes approx. 1 ½ h. There are 2 trains per hour and you have to change in either Landquart or Filisur.
