Welcome to Davos


Davos is the annual meeting point for the crème de la crème of world capitalism: the World Economic Forum. Global chat fests aside, Davos inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (of Sherlock Holmes fame) to don skis and Thomas Mann to pen The Magic Mountain. Davos comprises two contiguous areas, each with a train station: Davos Platz and the older Davos Dorf.
