I’m attending the World Economic Forum in Davos for the first time, if you’ll be there I’d love to meet up and of course open to any tips you have about the event, it’s very intimidating to attend a first-timer. Also: Switzerland is beautiful! Also my first time in the country.

Make sure you try some of the amazing spa facilities offered in Switzerland, plus beer 🙂 The combination can be rewarding and revitalizing (youtube video) especially after long nights.
Can’t help with Davos but you must take a day trip to Jungfrau:
You can take a train up inside through the mountain to the 14k peak. An amazing feet of engineering (explained in detail on your trip up). It’s probably a full a day, but the journey there takes you through some beautiful spots along the way.
For added drama watch the film North Face before you go – its about the dramatic climb of Eiger, a nearby peak you can see from Jungrfau, by four Germans in 1936 (http://seattletimes.com/html/movies/2010985360_mr05north.html)
Also: they do hang gliding trips from nearby Interlaken. I signed up for it but had to cancel due to weather. Avenge me!
Oh, I didn’t know you’re attending the WEF. Great to hear you like Switzerland!
I live near Davos (Chur, the capitol city of Grisons) , so we could actually meet. Drop me a mail or a tweet @swissspidy if you’re interested 🙂
The Jungfrau, like Scott mentioned, is a little bit far away for a day trip, but definitely worth a trip before you leave.
Gotta love Switzerland! 🙂
I am here as well, for street football world, a WEF social entrepreneur, and as LGT Venture Philanthropy iCats fellow, if you want to connect . . .
Davos! What an awesome honor to be part of it. Have you noticed the “where the girls at” situation? “49.7% of the world’s population are women. 17% of @Davos participants are women.” http://qz.com/46894/this-week-women-are-66-harder-to-find-at-davos-than-anywhere-else/
Matt, my wife and I have a regular vacation spot not far from Davos and St. Moritz … the Fex valley close to Sils-Maria in southeastern Switzerland. No cars, no real tourism but super inns and food.
