Davos has a pleasant and healthy pathogen-free climate with mountain air, which is especially beneficial for lung diseases such as asthma. This fact was discovered in the middle of the nineteenth century and by the beginning of the twentieth century, Davos was already an established health resort. Hotels, pensions, sanatoriums, and houses grew like mushrooms. Today, Davos has not only maintained but also built on its reputation as a health resort.

Davos has gained even better reputation as a winter sport center. The first sledge (sled) race was held in the late nineteenth century in Davos. In the early twentieth century, the first world championships in women's skating took place here. Since the seventies, the Davos Nordic is held annually -- these races have been officially valid since the eighties for the FIS Cross Country World Cup. Davos has excellent facilities for cross country skiing, alpine skiing, ice skating, sledge races, and bobsleigh; it is a favorite destination for many domestic and international tourists.

Although it is a small town, Davos has interesting buildings and parks. For example, you can visit the Heart of Jesus Catholic Church, the Mary Catholic Church, the City Hall, and the Large Jenatsch House. In general, you can visit all the sights in one or two days as everything is within walking distance.

As Davos is a small resort town, all Davos hostels are easy to reach on foot, so even if your Davos hostel is not on the main street, you can be sure that it will be somewhere very close to it. Hostels in Davos are not many and some of them operate only in the winter season. You should know that hostels in Davos are very expensive even for Swiss standards, even though they have good facilities, and that their prices can increase in the high season, especially if there is an international sport event.
