Reading bench

In summer, the "reading bank" invites one to linger, browse and read in the natural outdoors. A book box can be found on five benches along footpaths and walking routes in Davos and Klosters. These contain a wide selection of books for every age group to browse, to read, to become immersed in a story, to return and to read on. Foreign language books can also be found in the boxes.
