- Alpinum Schatzalp
The Schatzalp, also known as the "Magic Mountain", is located on a sun-drenched plateau directly above Davos. The Schatzalp is not known as the "Magic Mountain" for no reason: firstly readers of the literary masterpiece of the same name by Thomas Mann imagine his "magic mountain" to have been located here and, secondly, the Schatzalp is still today enchanting its visitors in a very special and mysterious way. The Alpinum is a botanical garden with 10,000 plants, around 2,000 different species from various mountain ranges around the world (Swiss, Pyrenean, New Zealand, Nepal, etc).

- Alp Novai (Klosters)
The Rhatian Railway brings you to Klosters. From the station you start the easy walk to Monbiel and Garfiun.
- Dischma valley
The Dischma, approx. 12 km in length, is one of the longest side valleys in Davos and an enchanting destination for an excursion. The Dischmabach is fed by a glacier and is icy cold and as clear as glass. Interesting destinations are the Keschhütte and the Grialetschhütte. The Restaurant Teufi can easily be reached by horse-drawn carriage.
