It doesn't always have to be the highest peak or the longest route. On the contrary. A leisurely winter hike also belongs on the to-do list during a winter stay or ski holiday in Davos Klosters. Winter hiking is a classic that never goes out of fashion. No wonder: you explore the snow-covered winter landscape without elaborate equipment and without much effort. The mornings are particularly intense, when the day slowly awakens - and the scent of winter is literally in the air. The winter hiking trail into the Dischma Valley (10 / 244) as well as into the Sertig Valley (19) are located along the road.
By winter hiking, we mean walking along a prepared path in the snow. Specifically: cleared or rolled. The Hohe Promenade in Davos is particularly popular. It offers an impressive view of Davos' flat roofs, the renovated ice stadium and the surrounding mountains such as the Jakobshorn opposite. As a photo stop, it is worth stopping at the wooden overpass at the Schatzalpbahn.
Those who prefer a more athletic hike can continue along the Thomas Mann Trail to the Schatzalp. And from there steeply up to the Strelapass. At the top, a panorama terrace awaits with views of Chüpfenflue, Schiahorn and Haupterhorn. And the Tinzenhorn shines in the distance. Sweeten this view with a piece of apple strudel. Also recommended are the panoramic winter trails on Pischa. Don't miss the route there ending at Hüreli at 2444 metres above sea level - one of the most spectacular views of Davos.
Klosters is also known for winter hiking. For example, from the Monbiel car park up to Alp Garfiun. This tour is suitable for the whole family - even with prams and grandparents. If you want, you can take the horse-drawn carriage back down to the valley. Prefer to go high up? You don't have to be a skier to enjoy the snow on sunny Madrisa. There are two routes to choose from for winter hiking: either from the mountain station to the Mässplatte or to the Zügenhüttli. And for a special ambience, a winter hike in the evening: the guided torchlight hike through Klosters is one of around 30 experiences in our winter guest programme.
The winter hiking trail starts in Davos Frauenkirch and leads up to Stafelalp at 1894 metres above sea level. The rustic mountain house has been around for over 250 years, but is bursting with cosiness. The hosts Maik and Cati serve homemade rösti or fondue. You return to the valley on a traditional wooden sledge, which you can borrow free of charge. An excursion away from the hustle and bustle.
The winter hike from the Monbiel car park up to Alp Garfiun is a classic in Klosters. Especially for the whole family with prams and grandparents. Once you reach the top, host Marc Schlunegger awaits you with culinary delights. Tip: the homemade Früchtewähe, fondue or the deer sausage. If you like, take the horse-drawn carriage back down to the valley.
There are two panoramic winter hiking trails on Pischa. Both tours start at the Pischa mountain station. The shorter route (1.3 km) is a circular route and leads rather flat towards the south. The longer route (6.3 km) takes winter hikers to the end point Hüreli at 2444 m above sea level - one of the most spectacular views of Davos.
This winter hike takes you steeply up over the Strelaberg to the pub on the pass. At the top, a viewing terrace awaits with views of the Chüpfenflue, Schiahorn and Haupterhorn. And the Tinzenhorn shines in the distance. So the break can last a little longer. For example, with a piece of freshly baked apple strudel. Delicious!

Whether for a leisurely digestive stroll, a ride with the pram or as a short round to air out your head: The leisurely winter hike high above the roofs of Davos is convincing in every situation. And offers an impressive view of the flat roofs and the surrounding mountains.
You don't have to be a skier to enjoy the snow on sunny Madrisa. There are two routes to choose from for winter hiking: either from the mountain station to the Mässplatte or to the Zügenhüttli. Once you reach the latter, Vroni and her team will serve you homemade delicacies. Tip: venison salsiz, raclette or apple pie. Mhhh!
Cold ears, freezing and wet shoes: this is no way to enjoy winter hiking. If you are still missing the right equipment or one or the other accessory, take a look at our sports shops in Davos Klosters first. Here you will find what you are looking for.
The unexpected appearance of a freerider can be problematic for wild animals in winter: an escape costs a lot of energy, which is then lacking to survive. Four simple rules help.
Freeriders are happy about a lot of fresh snow. For wild animals, on the other hand, this means one thing above all else: a naked fight for survival. Because what deer, deer, chamois and ibex normally scrape out of the snow to eat is now under a thick blanket of snow. Wild animals are therefore forced to use their energy sparingly. If they are disturbed and forced to flee, their survival is at risk.
