Davos and Klosters merged into a single branded resort back in 2003 and has flourished ever since. Davos is seen as a bit of a city in the Alps however it is surrounded by unbelievable mountain scenery which significantly adds to its charm. Klosters, on the other hand, is an incredibly pretty village where the Royals have been known to stay on ski trips, and with some of the best cuisine in Switzerland, who can blame them!
Davos and Klosters can be accessed in a few different ways, first, they are connected by the lift system but if that is closed by the time you start heading back after your après session, you can use the superb public transport in the area - the bus or the train. This will allow you to get the best of both worlds as it were, whilst out on your ski holiday, even if you do not have a car!
If you are not up for hitting the slopes, then Davos offers a wide range of activities for you to try out. From bowling and ice skating to tobogganing, winter walking and cross-country skiing – there is an abundance of activities here to keep you entertained on your ski holiday.
