Davos landscape

The territory of the Davos landscape encompasses the largest part of the Landwasser Valley and extends at Davos Wolfgang ( 1631  m ) a good two kilometers over the watershed into the Prättigau . The axis of the valley, marked by the river, main road and railway line, runs from northeast to southwest. From Lake Davos , it drops very gently at first, just under 60 meters over eight kilometers. In this section, the two side valleys Flüela and Dischma flow from the left , which provide access to the Flüelapass and Scalettapass crossings leading into the Engadin . From the confluence of the third, like the aforementioned 10 km long side valley, the Sertig valley, the valley floor becomes narrower and falls by almost 300 meters over the remaining nine kilometers to the former municipal boundary at the Felsenge Brombänz. The deeply cut lower section of the valley is called the Zügen Gorge . Beyond the Zügen Gorge is the Wiesen fraction, which has also been part of Davos since January 1, 2009.

The right (northwest) flank has only a few short side valleys. Here the municipal boundary - at the same time the watershed against the Plessur area - runs over the summits of Amselflue ( 2771  m ), Tiejer Flue ( 2781  m ), Mederger Flue ( 2674  m ) and Chüpfenflue ( 2658  m ) to the historically significant Strela pass . Beyond the saddle, it continues over the Schiahorn ( 2709  m ) to the Weissflue ( 2834  m ). In the north, the municipal boundary runs on the Casanna and the Gotschnagrat . The left side of the valley is divided into protruding ridges by the three side valleys. Seen from the valley, the upstream mountains Seehorn ( 2238  m ), Büelenhorn ( 2512  m ), Jakobshorn ( 2590  m ) and Rinerhorn ( 2528  m ) dominate the picture. The greatest heights, however, are found along the watershed towards the Engadine and the upper Albula valley : Flüela Wisshorn ( 3,085  m ), Flüela Schwarzhorn ( 3,147  m , highest point in the municipality), Piz Grialetsch ( 3,131  m ), Chüealphorn ( 3,078  m ) and Hoch Ducan ( 3063  m ).

Districts of Davos

The six districts - until the end of 2018 autonomous parliamentary groups - are in the direction of the river Landwasser :

  • Davos Dorf, including the Flüela valley, the Wolfgang settlement with the road crossing at the top of the Wolfgang pass and the hamlet of Laret on the other side of the pass,
  • Davos Platz, including the Dischmatal,
  • Davos Frauenkirch , including the Sertig Valley,
  • Davos Glaris
  • Davos Monstein (since 2019 the municipality's only public authority)
  • Davos meadows

The Fractions Frauenkirch, Glaris and Monstein together form the undercut, the Fractions Platz and Dorf the overcut .

The two largest fractions of the village and square are located in the almost flat upper section of the valley and have merged into a four-kilometer-long ribbon of settlements as a result of construction activity in the 20th century. A large number of individual farms and Alpine settlements are scattered across the entire municipality .

At 254.54 km², Davos was the second largest municipality in Switzerland in terms of area until the beginning of 2009. In 1997, 37.1% of the area was used for agriculture as meadows and pastures, the forest took up 19.7% and the settlements 2.2%. 41.0% were considered unproductive.

With the incorporation of Wiesen at the beginning of 2009, Davos became the largest municipality in Switzerland just before Bagnes (282 km²), but lost this leadership position again at the beginning of 2011 to the newly created municipality of Glarus Süd .

Neighboring communities are Arosa , Bergün Filisur , Klosters-Serneus , S-chanf , Schmitten and Susch .


The annual mean temperature is 3.5 ° C, with the coldest monthly temperatures in January at -4.9 ° C and the warmest monthly mean temperatures in July at 12.4 ° C. On average, around 193 frost days and 58 ice days are to be expected here. There are summer days on an annual average of 3.5, no hot days were recorded in the normal period 1981–2010.

Davos as a farming village

Although individual finds in several places in the Davos landscape suggest that people have been moving through the area since the Bronze Age, the valley has probably only been populated since the High Middle Ages . First, Romansh migrated from the Albula valley and the Engadine . Individual place and field names still indicate this Romanesque layer today ; the name Davos itself, documented as Tavaus in 1213 , is derived from late Lat. * tovu ‚Tobel '< tubusRöhre ' traced back: * ad tovātos ‚with places covered by ravine rubble 'or * ad tovānes ‚ with the Tobelle people'

Around 1280, the barons of Vaz Walser settled colonists and granted them extensive rights of self-administration in the fiefdom of 1289. Davos developed into the largest Walser settlement in Graubünden, founded the Ten Court League in 1436 , as the main town of which the municipality exerted significant influence on the politics of the three leagues . In 1526 the site joined the Reformation . Until the current political communities were created with the new cantonal constitution in 1851, Arosa also belonged to Davos as a neighborhood .

Up until the second half of the 19th century, cattle breeding was the main occupation. On the left slope of the Zügen Gorge - called Silberberg - lead and zinc ores were mined from the 15th to 19th centuries.

Davos as a health resort

In 1853 Alexander Spengler and later Willem Jan Holsboer discovered the beneficial and health-promoting climate of the low-pathogen mountain air, which is particularly beneficial for people with lung disease (e.g. tuberculosis and asthma ). The fact that no house dust mites live at this altitude has a supportive effect . In 1855 Hermann Brehmer initiated the era of the lung sanatoriums in Görbersdorf in Silesia , the contemporary model for all climatic health resorts (later called "Silesian Davos") .

One of the first winter spa guests in 1865 was Hugo Richter (1841–1921) from Königsberg, who was suffering from tuberculosis. The news of its rapid healing and other such healing stories made Davos world famous as a climatic health resort. Richter stayed in Davos. In 1881 he founded the Davoser Zeitung . The liberal newspaper strongly advocated the tourist development of the region. The Davoser Blätter , an entertaining magazine for the spa guests , also appeared in his publishing house . The Davoser Blätter regularly published guest lists that received a lot of attention and were a topic of conversation.

With the construction of the railway line from Landquart to Davos and its opening in 1890, the development of the place was accelerated: Hotels , guest houses, sanatoriums and villas were built in large numbers. This made Davos world famous as a climatic health resort . Davos was decisively shaped by the master builder and governor Gaudenz Issler (1853–1942).

As a result, many cantons and states began to build their own sanatoriums in Davos. The best known, which still exist today, are the Deutsche Hochgebirgsklinik Davos Wolfgang, together with the Clinic Nederlands Astmacentrum Davos and the Zürcher Höhenklinik Davos Clavadel. Others were canceled, such as the Alexanderhausklinik in 2004 , the Thurgauer / Schaffhauser Höhenklinik Davos in spring 2005 and the Basel sanatorium .

Thomas Mann's novel Der Zauberberg (1924) is set in Davos. It is based on his wife's stay in a Davos lung clinic before the First World War . In tourist advertising, the magic mountain is identified with the Hotel Schatzalp .

Davos as a winter sports resort

The old ice rink (around 1915)

The first toboggan race was held in Davos in 1883. In addition to toboggan races on a separate track, bobsleigh races were also held from Schatzalp . The writer Arthur Conan Doyle described skiing in Davos in a humorous essay in 1889 and thus sparked the popularity of the place, especially among the British, which continues to this day. The Davos sledge was also created at this time . In 1906, the first women's ice skating world championships took place in Davos . In December 1934 in Davos am Bolgen, the world's first ski-lift was put into operation by the Davos ski school . The almost 300 meter long lift was documented in a short film in January 1935. Today La Nuit blanche takes place there every year .

A peculiarity of Davos were the cable car companies that operated separately until a few years ago and opened up several separate ski areas in the Davos / Klosters area: Schatzalp / Strela , Brämabüel / Jakobshorn , Parsenn , Pischa , Rinerhorn and Madrisa (near Klosters). In 2002 the lift operation on the Schatzalp was stopped. In the 2009/10 winter season, the Schatzalp / Strela ski area was reopened to a reduced extent.

The largest natural ice rink in Europe is still located in the center of Davos . This was the first time since 1914 that a bandy tournament was held in Switzerland on January 6, 2014 . The 2016 European Bandy Championship for men is the 2nd edition of this tournament and will also take place here. Right next door is the Vaillant-Arena ice rink , home of HC Davos , which was founded in 1921 . As a “record champion”, he has won 31 Swiss championship titles so far . The stadium has a capacity of 7,080. The Davosers achieved their last success in 2015 when they defeated the ZSC Lions 4-1 in the final series .

Since 1923, HC Davos has welcomed five - up to and including 2009 four - club teams to the international ice hockey tournament for the Spengler Cup every year between Christmas and New Year . The hosts are the record winners with 15 victories, the last success being a 3-2 win over Dinamo Riga in the 2011 final.

The Davos Nordic has been held annually since 1972 . These races have officially been part of the FIS Cross-Country World Cup series since 1980. Athletes like Thomas Wassberg and Bjørn Dæhlie celebrated victories in Davos. Davos Nordic can also benefit from the great successes of Dario Cologna - the event has seen a considerable surge in development since 2007 and the number of spectators has multiplied.

In summer, water sports such as windsurfing and beach volleyball can be practiced in the outdoor pool on Lake Davos .

International headlines

Davos hit the international headlines in 1936 when the Jewish student David Frankfurter shot and killed Wilhelm Gustloff , the NSDAP regional group leader for Switzerland, who had moved from Germany to Davos in 1917 . The National Socialists responded to Switzerland with verbal attacks, while Frankfurter was sentenced to life imprisonment in Chur that same year (pardoned and expelled in 1945).

Typical small station of the Rhaetian Railway in Davos-Glaris



Davos can be reached from the north via the Prättigau and Hauptstrasse 28 . Since this road is the main feeder to Davos, the Prättigau suffers a lot from traffic. Therefore, the street in the Prättigau became federal property ( N28 ). In addition, many bypasses were built for the traffic-plagued villages. Other roads lead east over the Flüelapass into the Engadin (H28) and south-west to Tiefencastel and Thusis (H417) or via Lenzerheide ( H3 ) to Chur .

In Davos itself, two one-way streets serve as the main street; the slightly higher promenade to the southwest and the valley road in the valley to the northeast. Both streets are connected by many side streets. From north to south these are: Dischmastrasse , Schiaweg , Reginaweg , Hertistrasse , Kurgartenstrasse , Tobelmühlestrasse , Guggerbachstrasse , Hintere Gasse .


Davos can be reached by train with the Rhaetian Railway (RhB). On the one hand via the Landquart – Klosters – Davos Platz railway line from Landquart and on the other via the Filisur – Davos Platz line from Filisur. These connections run every hour. The community has eight stations. The two most important are the Davos Dorf and Davos Platz train stations .


The local bus network operated by the Davos Landscape Transport Authority (VBD) together with PostAuto Schweiz AG and the two local transport companies Stiffler and Kessler connects Davos Dorf and Platz with the outskirts and the side valleys on eight lines. The PostBus route 183 connects Davos with Chur via Alvaneu and Lenzerheide. Another line, the 331, runs over the Flüela Pass to Susch in the Lower Engadine, from where there is a connection to the Rhaetian Railway.

Mountain railways

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle crossed the Maienfelder Furgga to Arosa on skis from Davos in the winter of 1894 together with the local brothers Johann and Tobias Branger . He then described the undertaking in detail in the English magazine Strand Magazine . This article contributed significantly to the fact that Davos and Graubünden became very popular, especially with the English . It can be seen as legacy of this article that every year the British-Swiss Parliamentarian Ski Race takes place, in which only Swiss and British MPs take part.


Thomas Mann made Davos famous in the German-speaking world with his novel Der Zauberberg , which appeared in 1924 and was later filmed . The sanatorium described in the book was the forest sanatorium , which is now run as the Waldhotel Davos (formerly Waldhotel Bellevue ).
