Davos: studying, working and living in the highest-altitude city in Europe
This is how citizens, authorities and guests see their Davos in the future: An open-minded alpine metropolis with a unique character. A sustainably design space for living and business. The population is slightly growing. Urban and rural landscape at the same time, this is the unique selling proposition of Davos. Clearly limited on Davos Dorf and Davos Platz, a city with a vehicle-free Promenade and various green areas. Just next door, there is the Lake Davos, surrounded by a carefully developed landscape, a heritage of the settlement of the Walsers in the middle of a scenic alpine environment.
The local population finds everything what they need for their daily life in Davos. Also affordable space of living and appropriate jobs. It is not only the tourism, but also congresses, education, research, medicine, agriculture and business bringing economic benefits. Everybody feels as a part of the "Entreprise Davos" and engages in making our guests feel welcome.
What is the formula for success for Davos? It is the focus on quality, also quality of life. It is the everyday engagement in combining tradition with the present and the future. And the cooperation beyond borders, on all levels.
