EAAP in Davos: The Congress you will remember for a long time
Davos is the highest town in the Alps located at about 1500 metres above sea level. An EAAP Congress in the mountains, in the midst of nature? What a good idea, because Davos has one of the most modern congress centers in the Alps which also hosts the annual World Economic Forum (WEF). The Davos Congress Center is in the very heart of this and has suitable spaces for every occasion.
Davos Klosters is also one of the most famous vacation destinations in the world and offers the complete range of vacation, sports and meeting facilities in the middle of the mountains.
Just imagine, you are participating in the interesting EAAP Congress yet at the same time you feel you are on vacation. The fascinating mountain nature will inspire you and unwind you automatically from your daily routine.
A wide range of sophisticated restaurants, hotels and bars invite you to linger for a while in the evenings to enjoy their diverse culinary specialities and appreciate the same warm and easy-going atmosphere they all share.
Admittedly, Davos is not exactly “round the corner”, but it can be reached in just a few hours from Zürich, Basel, Geneva, Munich, Innsbruck and Milan. Transform your journey to Davos into a real experience and travel on the Rhaetian railway high up the Prättigau or from Chur across the Landwasser Viaduct (UNESCO World Heritage Site) through the unique landscape to Davos. Once you’ve arrived at the top you will really think you’re on vacation, but at the EEAP Congress. And everything is so close together. You won’t waste any more time in Davos with long travel times and this more than makes up for the longer journey to get there.
