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 Schatzalp offers visitors a wealth of diverse attractions. The Hotel Schatzalp lies 300 metres above Davos in a splendid south-facing position. The hotel, built in the Art Nouveau style between 1898 and 1900, was originally designed as a luxurious sanatorium and was regarded as one of the most advanced healing centres of its kind in the region at the start of the 20th century. Since 1953, the Schatzalp Sanatorium has been run as the first-class Hotel Schatzalp. The hotel, along with the entire mountain, has been immortalised by the novel "The Magic Mountain" (1924) written by the acclaimed German author and Nobel Prize Winner Thomas Mann. The Schatzalp Panorama Restaurant (do be sure to try their fondue specialities!) offers guests a splendid view over Davos. A short uphill walk (15 minutes) leads to the Strelaalp mountain restaurant (1921 m above sea level), which also features a wonderful sun terrace with fantastic views over the whole of Davos.
