This comfortable circular trail leads around Lake Davos and offers a permanent wonderful view over the water, the valley and the prominent mountains of Davos. A worthwhile detour for every nature lover.

The path runs close to the shore. Over prepared snow surface the route leads around the lake, partly along the edge of shady woods, then again through open terrain. The forest is inhabited by squirrels, which have become so accustomed to the tourists that they approach confidently up to half a meter. On the north side, the view over the lake into the valley is especially impressive. The mountains of Davos in the background round off the picturesque picture perfectly. White snowfields line the shore, from time to time a small wooden jetty juts out into the water. On the way there are numerous secluded park benches from which you can enjoy the view. Thanks to the idyllic scenery, Lake Davos is a suitable place to relax and recharge your batteries. 

Author’s recommendation

The Restaurant Seebüel is a good place to stop along the route.

Sehr schöner und ebener Rundweg um den Davosersee. Der Eichhörnchenwald ist super und die Eichhörnchen sehr zutraulich. Lohnt sich auf jeden Fall!
