Davos-Klosters, Switzerland: Davos-Klosters is located in the Eastern part of Switzerland, and probably one of the most famous ski resorts in the area. With over 300km of slopes and plenty of other winter sport activities the area offers a great stay for the whole family. Klosters is a small and peaceful upscale alpine village with traditional chalets providing a beautiful scenic stay while Davos, the home for the World Economic Forum, is a bigger place with more activities.
Skiing in Davos-Klosters
I love the slops in the Davos-Klosters mountains. You can enjoy the long runs, beautiful sceneries and the international atmosphere of the area. This year the season started in the first weekend of December and already now at the beginning of the ski season the slopes are with plenty of good snow for skiing. December and January are usually the coldest months, but also a bit quieter, while February and March are the busiest ones. Whatever is the season, the best runs are the ones in the early morning, when the resort is just awakening – and you can enjoy the perfect slopes almost on your own!
Good mountain restaurants
Nothing makes the stay better than a great lunch between the skiing. The area has quite a many good restaurants, where you can sit outside enjoying the sun and good food. In a colder weather the same places offer a cosy and relaxing atmosphere inside. Here is a link to some good mountain restaurants in the area.
Fine dining in Walserhof, Klosters
Walserhof is the place to go for gourmet. It is a stylish, traditional alpine style restaurant with great food and an attention to detail. I tried their ravioli with Klosters’ cheese as a starter and some herbal chicken for the main course, both very delicious! I also discovered that their chocolate cake is the best choice for a desert.

Sunday walk to Berghaus Alpenrosli
Alpenrosli, an alpine chalet built in 1875, is a great destination for a refreshing Sunday walk. To reach the place a bit of exercise is required, but it is definitively worth of every step. Having something warm to drink while sitting on their terrace looking over the Klosters village, you can almost touch the silence of the Swiss Alps. If the weather doesn’t allow sitting outside, try their simple, but delicious lunch in a rustic, cosy restaurant, before walking back to the village.
