Davos, is the world capital for one week in February, when the World Economic Forum gathers in the Swiss Alpine Mountains with leaders all over the world. The preparations for the next year meetings are also going on in June, when I visited this lovely Alpine village.
– You know, when the leaders come to Davos, they have very tight schedules. They want to meet everybody, while their all collaques are also here. One way to see it, one could say that this is also sustainable. For one week, you do not have to travel anywhere, just stay in Davos to meet everybody, says the top quality-hotel director Silvana Schlösser from Ameron Swiss Mountain Hotel.
And yes, she is right. Why not stay for longer on this just-opened, brand new four-star plus quality spa hotel in Davos. The hotel, 1560 meters above the sea level, is a culinary and well-being heaven. One can feel the slow-down and nature while the mountains and all sports facilities are near.
This Davos based Ameron hotel is the first Ameron Resort, a place for relaxation and smart business. It has 148 rooms with modern Alpine design and led-lightnings, 6 meetings and event rooms and vitality spa with over 850 m2 different saunas and silence room. This hotel has also a Finnish sauna for its quests.
The Kids Club is also a very popular in the hotel. Kids have their own events and activities during the stay. What would you say about a trip to the local farm or a play in the snow?
Art design hotel
One design element in the hotel is art. One can see that the art collection reflects the local surroundings. According to Mrs Schlösser this art concept is famous in all the Amaron destinations in Europe.
This hotel group has several destinations in Germany for example in Berlin, Cologne, Bonn, Hamburg and next year also in Munich. Group´s five-stars hotels are called Atlhoff-hotels and they have over 10 Michelin restaurant stars according to Mrs Sclösser. It goes without saying that the hotel-owner, German Thomas Althoff, is a star-collector, as the German newspaper Die Welt, has also named his business. These five-stars hotels are located in Germany, London and Saint-Tropez.
Davos Klosters for winter and summer sports
This Alpine village is located about two hours ride from Zurich main railway station. It offers a wide range of different sports possibilities: for example 700 km marked hiking and panorama roads, biking, horse riding and golf. And even theme trails:this time cultural-historic trail or Alpine Botanical Trail would be perfect.
During winter time Davos has over 320 km ski slopes, Nordic skiing, Alpine Skiing, skating and winter hiking trails. And if you can not decide, the tourist office has made a day plan for different kind of events and activities to participate. Now it is up to you: discover and enjoy Davos!
