Chillon Castle

The most famous fortress in Switzerland, the Château de Chillon is one of the most beautiful historical buildings in the country and is one of the most frequently-visited sights in Europe. It was constructed in the 13th century over foundations that were even older. The castle is by the lake and at the foot of a hill, and the attraction is therefore twofold: it is a lakeside fortress on one side and a royal residence on the other.

Chillon Castle is located on a rock on the banks of Lake Geneva. The water castle is the most visited historic building in Switzerland. For nearly four centuries Chillon was the residence and profitable toll station of the Counts of Savoy.

Since the 1970s old farmhouses, stables, bakehouses or barns are no longer demolished when they are due to be replaced by modern buildings. Instead, the buildings are dismantled stone by stone, and rebuilt in the Ballenberg Open Air Museum.

Schatzalp Snow & Mountain Resort (Unique)

Voted Historic Hotel of Switzerland in 2008. Opened in 1900 as a luxury sanatorium, the architecture has been preserved in its original form.

This nostalgic Art Nouveau style building with its Belle Époque atmosphere, already described in Thomas Mann's book "Zauberberg" [Magic Mountain], opened its doors in 1900 as a luxury sanatorium and was later converted to a mountain hotel. The soul of the house, its architecture, has been preserved in its original form until today. The Villa Guarda - formerly the former doctor's residence - and the Chalet exude new splendour with their luxurious suites. With the Schatzalp train, the "Magic Mountain" is just four minutes away from the centre of Davos. Free WLAN access throughout the hotel premises, even in the Schatzalp/Strela skiing area.
