Davos is a Swiss town with an international flavour and the highest town in the Alps at 1560 metres altitude. Though it may lack the genuine alpine beauty, the true fans of winter sports will be captivated by the ski areas and what they have to offer. This ski metropolis offers different slopes at an altitude up to 2844 metres and is pretty exciting for advanced and expert skiers and snowboarders.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was instantly drawn into winter sports in Davos while his wife was having treatment for tuberculosis, and he popularized this town as a ski destination. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, one of the greatest German artists, came to Davos to seek treatment and stayed there until his death. The beautiful mountain scenery was an inspiration for many of his works and can be found in the Kirchner Museum in Davos.
