Is Switzerland respectively Davos Klosters a safe travel destination?

Dense forests, clear lakes and fresh mountain air: Switzerland, and thus also Davos Klosters as a travel destination, offers not only pure nature, but also safety and a good health system. The tourist service providers also take special measures to protect guests and ensure that they have a pleasant stay in Switzerland.

Mandatory quarantine for persons arriving in Switzerland

People arriving in Switzerland from certain countries and areas are required to go into quarantine. A negative test result does not exempt you from the mandatory quarantine requirement.

When does the winter season start in Davos Klosters?

The start of the winter season will take place on Saturday, 31 October 2020. Then the four-kilometre-long snowfarming trail in the Flüela Valley will be open again. It can be used by athletes and amateurs alike. The Davos Klosters Mountains are expected to start the new winter season on 26 November 2020 with the Parsenn ski area.

Why can guests look forward to skiing holidays in Davos Klosters despite protective measures?

The key word is distance. Davos Klosters offers no less than six ski areas and thus enough space for relaxing days on the slopes. Because we have so many mountains to choose from, the queues are never as long as in other destinations. There is no danger of density stress down in the valley either: our side valleys are ideal for relaxed winter walks or snowshoe tours and our free network of cross-country ski trails makes us one of the largest cross-country skiing areas in the Alps. Especially for the coming winter we are currently revising our guest programme and offer many new Corona-compatible offers. But we can't reveal more about this at the moment.

Have the service providers on site prepared themselves well?

The big unknown is the development of the pandemic. But mountain railways, hotels, restaurants, event organisers and ski schools have prepared themselves very thoroughly for the winter season. Their protection concepts are there to ensure that people in Davos Klosters feel safe and can still enjoy their holidays.

What does this mean in concrete terms for the mountain railways?
The mountain railways run continuously so that as few people as possible come together in the waiting areas and cabins. There are also special cleaning measures for seats, handrails and toilets. Among other things, cold foggers are used for this purpose, which eliminate 99.99 percent of all viruses, bacteria and spores on surfaces in a lift cabin in just one minute. As in all public transport, masks are compulsory in stations and cabins.

What will be different for guests this winter?
What guests will probably have to do without this winter is enjoyable après-ski celebrations without a minimum distance. However, the summer has shown that guests understand this and Davos has a lot to offer even without it.
