Davos during WEF
Davos is a wonderful place in the eastern part of the Swiss Alps.
- The city/village is 1560 metres above sea level
- 6 skiing areas can be used in the winter season, in the summer season
the same become lovely hiking places.
- The famous (or infamous) WEF (World Economic Forum) takes place here yearly
- A big choice for shopping, dining, partying is available.
I had the luck to be there at the weekend when the WEF took place, where all the powerful people show up here to discuss about the problems of our world. So I made some photos of the security measures of such a global event.
But in the same time I had the luck of seeing Davos on a sunny day in a year (2012) with enormous amounts of snow and can hence show you some lovely pictures.
Pictures of Davos:
The massive amount of snow makes the houses look like a smurf village.
The plains along the local creek can be used to have a walk or for cross-country skiing.
Wanna have a ride?
This and the next two pictures are from the Schatzalp.

Pictures of the WEF in Davos:
Belvedere Hotel - one of the WEF places
The guarded entrance to the WEF area
A lot of fences can be seen.
Big brother is watching you, at least during WEF.
None of the participants have to walk from the hotel if they don't want to.
Many global companies rent a shop for a day or two, completely refurbish it and hold press conferences, meetings and so on. So you could say: Nothing is as it seems in Davos during WEF.

Definitely! The plains with the creek in the middle (see photos above) have cross-country ski runs in it. And I saw quite a few people doing it, while I preferred just walking in the snow.
Kind regards, Charles

I agree. With the right clothes keeping you warm it is very enjoyable to stroll around having something warm to drink every now and then.
