The Host City Edit

Davos is a town & municipality in the district of Prättigau/Davos in the Canton of Graubünden , Switzerland (the largest & easternmost Canton in the country, sharing international borders with Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein). It has a permanent population of around 11.300 people.

From mid 19th century , Davos became a popular destination for the sick & the ailing because the special local climate (‘microclimate’) in the high valley was deemed exc- ellent by doctors & recommended for lung disease patients. On another front , Davos became a mecca for wintersports, soon turning into a famous international ski resort.

Davos is, sometimes , referred to as the ‘ party town’ of the Swiss Alps . Additionally, Davos boasts small but exceptional establishments, which impress due to their unique character. In winter in particular the numerous ski bars and sun terraces in the resort (Davos Klosters) are responsible for holiday fun and cool winter / mountain activities.
