  • Restrictions in public life and first prospects of liberation

    The epidemiological situation allows the ski areas in Davos Klosters to remain open until the end of the winter season. However, restaurants (except take-away services) and indoor leisure facilities are currently closed. Shops selling non-daily consumer goods are also closed. The first relaxations, such as the opening of shops, museums and other leisure facilities, will follow from 1 March.

    Restaurants throughout Switzerland are currently closed. Take-away operations, including in ski resorts, remain permitted. However, the ski terraces will have to close again as of 1 March.
    Guests are still not allowed indoors. In addition, terraces in ski resorts must close again from Friday evening, 26 February.

    First relaxation as of 1 March 2021
    The Federal Council presented its opening schedule on 17 February. Shops, museums, zoos and leisure facilities are to reopen from 1 March. Outdoors, private events for up to 15 people are to be permitted again from 1 March. The next opening step is scheduled for 22 March, with consultation of the cantons starting on 12 March and the Federal Council's decision on 19 March.

    Compulsory wearing of masks outdoors to be dropped
    Against the background of the Federal Council's relaxation, the protection concept will also be adapted in Davos. In view of the rising test rate and the holiday season coming to an end, stricter communal regulations regarding protective masks in public outdoor areas are to be dropped as of 1 March. Instead, the general rules of the federal government will apply again, as is the case in the vast majority of municipalities. Thus, for example, the mask obligation will continue to apply in public traffic and everywhere where the minimum distance of one and a half metres cannot be maintained. The obligation to wear protective masks remains in force in the queuing areas of the mountain railways and on the grounds of Davos schools.

    The first relaxations as of 1 March 2021

    The Federal Council is relaxing the current Covid 19 protection measures across Switzerland from 1 March. These include the opening of shops, museums and outdoor leisure and sports facilities.

  • Safe travel destination

    Guests from countries with an increased risk of infection: Negative test and quarantine upon entry

    In future, visitors from countries with an increased risk of infection must present a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours old on entry. They will then be placed in quarantine. This can also be shortened with a negative test on the 7th day.

    Persons arriving by plane from countries that do not belong to the risk areas must present a negative test upon entry. The check is carried out when boarding the aircraft.

    The quarantine and entry rules decided by the Federal Council require an adjustment of the relevant Covid 19 ordinances. They will come into force on 8 February 2021

    Departures to the United Kingdom (UK) and South Africa possible again
    Passenger flights from Switzerland to the UK and South Africa are no longer restricted. Special protective measures will apply to passengers in quarantine. For transport to airports, the necessary protective measures are ensured to minimise the epidemiological risk during internal transfers. The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) coordinates with the cantons to ensure this special transfer. To carry out the flights, the airlines are required to comply with the existing sanitary protection concepts.

  • Very important now: Hygiene & behavioural measures
  • Winter Season 2020/21

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

    The key word is distance. Davos Klosters offers 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. 

    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 the stations and cabins, as well as on the lifts.

    What will be different for guests this winter?

    What guests will probably have to do without this winter is enjoy a lively après-ski party with no minimum distance. But the summer has shown that guests understand this and Davos Klosters has a lot to offer even without that.
