Luxury in Davos: Lovely summer location
The development of an attractive range of leisure facilities all around the urbanised centre made Davos an early trendsetter with respect to leisure stays in the mountains. As such, for over 100 years Davos has boasted coffee houses, theatres, concerts and even six cinemas in which to entertain its guests. This role as a trendsetter, which - during the years of tuberculosis in Europe - acted to generate a spirit of optimism, has remained true of what is now the highest town in the Alps to this day. Davos, the highest town in Europe, famed for the diversity of sports, leisure and cultural facilities, its rejuvenating climate, the Kirchner Museum, the World Economic Forum and the fascinating mountain nature. Davos has been known as a high altitude spa for 140 years. The history of Davos as a spa town began in the middle of the nineteenth century - when Alexander Spengler came from Germany to the mountain farming town of Davos with its 1800 inhabitants.
Spengler discovered the healing effects of the high mountain climate and made the town world-famous as a high altitude spa town. Today, we know: Spengler was far ahead of his time. The healthy climate at 1,560 m above sea level is particularly helpful in treating allergic and infectious illnesses of the respiratory tracts and the lungs. The cultural offerings in Davos Klosters are unmatched in the mountains in terms of diversity and quality. In addition to the rich cultural past with artists such as Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Thomas Mann, Davos and Klosters also have something important to offer today. The unique selection of museums, numerous innovative individuals and many cultural events with an international format guarantee a diverse culture program spread across the entire year. Apart from magnificent luxury catered chalets in Davos, Leo Trippi also offers luxury apartments for rental, as well as luxury chalets and luxury apartments on a self-catered basis.
