Willkommen in Davos! Nestled in the idyllic valleys of the Swiss Alps, Europe’s highest town is the gateway to Switzerland’s spectacular alpine landscape.
Your tour begins at your elegant Davos hotel, where you’ll join your fellow travellers and settle in among your picture-book surroundings. Depending on your arrival time, the day is at your leisure to explore the alpine scenery or recline in ultimate comfort.
Set out this morning for a guided walking tour of Davos. Dating back over 800 years, this high alpine settlement is renowned for its year-round access to the most beautiful sights of the Swiss Alps. From the painterly views across Lake Davos to the charming town and elegant chalets, there’s no shortage of beauty to appreciate.
Set your day in motion as you board the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Bernina Express. Pass bucolic pastures as you climb over 2,200 metres into the glaciated Alps, travelling through 55 tunnels and traversing 196 jaw-dropping bridges on your way to the southern reaches of Switzerland.
Cross the border to bella Italia as you pull into the charming town of Tirano. Wander the enchanting old town and admire the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Tirano – a popular pilgrimage site dating back to the early 16th Century.
Later, return to Davos by comfortable coach, and spend the evening enjoying the unparalleled mountain views.
Today is yours to spend at leisure. Perhaps use your Davos Klosters Premium Card for discounted use of the scenic cable cars, ascending to the top of Jakobshorn, Parsenn or Rinerhorn for panoramic vistas, underscored by the distant echoes of cowbells below. For those craving a slower pace, embark on foot, by bike or horse-drawn carriage to the surrounding valleys of Sertig, Dischma or Fluela – each offering a scenic sigh of relief.
Gather your energy over a refreshing breakfast, then settle into your comfortable carriage on the Glacier Express. Rolling through the heart of Switzerland, this famous train journey takes you from icy blue waters at the depths of the Rhine Gorge all the way to the 2,044-metre-high Oberalp Pass, burrowing through 91 tunnels and crossing a staggering 291 bridges along the way to Andermatt. For over 80 years, the Glacier Express has chugged along these rails, inspiring pioneering alpine railway ingenuity at every turn.
Return to your elegant Davos hotel later for a restful evening, and perhaps choose to indulge in a wellness treatment at the Precise Tale Seehof Davos spa.
Strike out for adventure as you make your way to Vaduz – the capital of neighbouring Liechtenstein. Admire Vaduz Castle, the royal residence of the Grand Duke of Liechtenstein, and watch the Rhine River roll smoothly by.
Continue on your way with another crossing, this time into the enchanting Bavarian countryside of southern Germany. Stop in Lindau, a beautiful town set on stunning Lake Constance. Breeze past the old stone lighthouse as you glide across this magnificent lake on a cruise to farther shores, where you’ll meet your convenient coach transport to journey back to Switzerland and your Davos accommodation.
Spend another day at your own pace, making a circuit around calm Davos Lake or perhaps paying a visit to the BierVision Monstein brewery for a taste of their specialty beer, made using quality Swiss hops and spring water.
With one final breakfast and a last glimpse of the astounding mountain views, it’s time to bid your fellow travellers farewell, as your tour concludes at your elegant hotel.
