The course will be held at The Hotel Belvédère in Davos Platz in the Graubunden resort area of Switzerland.

The Steigenberger Belvédère Hotel, Promenade 89, 7270 Davos-Platz, Switzerland is a five-star hotel located in the center of Davos, 0.8 km from the railway station. The hotel, built in 1875, is a harmonious combination of grand past with lively present, of international standards with traditional Swiss hospitality. The view is magnificent in any season in this sumptuously appointed hotel centrally located near all of Davos's many attractions and sports facilities. Spacious, comfortable rooms decorated in romantic-rustic fashion with wooden paneling or in an elegant, modern style, wish you a warm welcome. Large commons areas allow informal conversations between course participants and course lecturers outside of the formal sessions. Information on the Davos area may be found by accessing the Davos Tourist Bureau.
Davos is about 100 km north of St. Moritz in Southeastern Switzerland. It can be reached by air by flying into Zurich, and then taking Swiss Rail to Davos Platz, with a change of trains in Landquart. From Northern Europe, the most common rail route is via Zurich and Landquart to Davos Platz. Driving to Davos should be no problem, since the roads into Davos, although mountainous, are good.
