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. From Italy the best routing is probably from Milan via Zurich to Davos Platz. Driving to Davos should be no problem, since the roads into Davos, although mountainous, are good.
