Located two hours from Zurich and situated a lofty 1,560 metres above sea level, the Swiss town of Davos is the highest in Europe. To those in the know, the town has enjoyed a global reputation since the 19th century as a year-round health resort and long been a well-established hub for leisure and cultural activities with sporting events throughout the winter and summer. And while the World Economic Forum grabs the headlines, Davos is home to many other high-profile conferences.
Residences are centrally located in Davos Platz, close to the Promenade, so the town’s most popular shops, restaurants, bars and night spots are all moments away by foot. So too is Davos’s rich cultural offering of art galleries, museums and a theatre together with an annual programme of events and music festivals to cater for all tastes. Crucially Davos Platz has a cable car station giving direct access to the main ski area of Jakobshorn which also doubles as the region’s most popular take-off point for hang-gliding and snowkiting. There’s just as much to entice visitors and sports enthusiasts in summer; in fact the whole Alpine region now sees more visitors in summer than in winter.
