Davos: a little history

 

Davos has a rich history, closely linked to its exceptional Alpine environment and its transformation from a pastoral community to a global crossroads of economic dialogue.

In the 13th century, Davos was mainly used as a grazing area for cattle. In the 19th century, however, the town took a major turn with the development of tourism. The discovery of clean air and spectacular scenery attracted the first visitors in search of health benefits. The first hotels were built to accommodate these visitors, laying the foundations for the tourism industry that still characterizes the town today.

The development of Davos as a leading winter destination was aided by the construction of the railroad in the region. Easier access opened the door to an influx of visitors seeking to enjoy winter sports activities. The first ski resort in Davos, Parsenn, opened in 1931, further cementing its reputation as a paradise for alpine sports enthusiasts.

Davos was also the birthplace of an important cultural figure, the Expressionist painter and sculptor Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, who resided in the town from 1917 to 1938. His former home is now a museum, attracting art lovers from all over the world.

However, Davos’ worldwide fame is not limited to its natural charms. In 1971, the town hosted the first annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF). Since then, the Davos meeting has become a global platform for political, business and intellectual leaders, shaping the future of the world economy and encouraging dialogue between the public and private sectors.
