Where once the healthy climate was the main attraction, Davos Klosters is now known for its vast variety of leisure, culture and, above all, sports opportunities.
Trail running is the new running trend for lovers of the mountains. More and more runners are leaving the roads behind and heading off cross-country, often well away from popular tracks. Their focus is on nature. And there’s more than enough of that in Davos Klosters. ‘Run, Forrest, run!’ A command surely known to every runner. People in ancient times did precisely what Tom Hanks does in his well-known role for similar reasons: unfettered running. As hunters back then could not rely on advanced technology, they simply used their physical abilities and ran after animals to catch them. Anyway, trail runners and endurance athletes are back in fashion today – and they love training in Davos Klosters.
Different ways to Runner's High
Those who run here do not only enjoy the view, but also benefit from altitude training and the stimulating high alpine climate. And from the sheer countless variations for trail running: flow trails over gentle hills and steep, technical trails alternate. All you need for this are running shoes with a good profile, a thin wind jacket and possibly a running backpack for the most necessary supplies.

One card, many benefits - With the Davos Klosters Premium Card, guests will benefit from numerous advantages and discounts.
Anyone who spends at least one night in a commercially rented establishment such as a hotel, holiday apartment or group accommodation in Davos Klosters will receive the Davos Klosters Premium Card. This guest card offers numerous advantages and discounts during your stay.
Public transport and guest programme from the first overnight stay
With the Premium Card, local public transport is on the spot from the first night (trips to the side valleys of Dischma, Sertig, Monstein, Davos Wiesen as well as Küblis excluded. They can be reached with a VBD day ticket for only CHF 10), some offers of the winter guest programme and the summer guest programme, such as a guided GWunderwald tour are free of charge. Premium activities cost between ten (e.g. windsurfing) and fifteen (e.g. paragliding taster course) francs. For events with a limited number of participants, such as a guided tour of the Kirchner Museum, a registration fee of five francs is due.
Discounted mountain railways from the first night onwards
The Premium Card is particularly attractive for guests who wish to use a mountain railway in the summer season. From the first night onwards they benefit from greatly reduced prices: An adult person pays ten francs for a complete ascent and descent on a single mountain from the Davos Klosters Mountains (Jakobshorn, Parsenn, Gotschna, Rinerhorn, Madrisa). If you would like to use several mountains from the DKM on the same day, you can buy a day ticket for 15 francs. A ticket for Schatzalp is six francs. Children aged six to seventeen pay half each. Children under this age group travel free of charge.
Special prices for groups in hotels/camp accommodation
Groups are also delighted with the new Premium Card: when using the mountain railway, you benefit from an unbeatable special price of five francs for a complete ascent and descent on a single mountain from the Davos Klosters Mountains (Jakobshorn, Parsenn, Gotschna, Rinerhorn, Madrisa) and three francs for Schatzalp. A group is defined as at least 20 participants and at least two consecutive overnight stays (according to guest tax law). There is no group discount on the day ticket.
