Davos in Grisons is a place of superlatives: this holiday destination with international ambience is the largest resort in the Alps for mountain holidays, sport and conferences, at 1560 m the highest town in the Alps and a high-altitude health resort with a long tradition. This long-drawn-out town in the Landwasser valley is renowned above all as a conference centre, and also as a major winter and summer sports centre with an international flavour and a huge range of activities. Its showpiece is its modern Conference Centre, which hosts the World Economic Forum WEF (nearly) every year.
Klosters offers a unique combination of a renowned mountain resort – the British heir to the throne Prince Charles is a regular guest – and the idyll of an unspoilt Graubünden village. The diverse range of activities on offer in summer and winter is well suited to families with children.
Nestling in what has remained the rural part of the Prättigau (Graubünden), Klosters, with its romantic village-like atmosphere, stands in stark contrast to the nearby Alpine metropolis of Davos. Thanks to the Vereina tunnel, even the Engadine has now become a direct neighbouring region. Klosters belongs to the family resorts bearing the "Families Destination" quality mark.
