Shopping in Davos - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

Davos Platz There is no large assortment of goods from famous brands in Davos. Most of the local shops are designed for tourists and offer mainly souvenirs or ski equipment. So if you are counting on purchase a handbag or shoes from the latest Dior or Gucci collection, it is worth spending time on a trip to Zurich or Lucerne. Buying ski equipment at the height of the season will not be too profitable. However, the range of these products is very wide, especially for snowboards. There are all kinds of equipment for any size and budget.
Davos is an internationally famous Swiss ski resort. The town is widely recognized as one of the best mountains resorts in the world. For more than 50 years, fans of skiing from all over the … Open
But if the main thing for you is the benefit, then you need to come to Davos for sports equipment in the off-season. The best period for this is May-June. At that time, there are the lowest prices for things from collections that have become irrelevant. At the same time, the equipment for the new season has not yet been brought. You should bargain in local stores, as there is a chance to lose about a tenth of the original price. This is especially true if you come out of season or found some kind of marriage. You can pay both Swiss francs and euros. Note that despite the fact that the Euro is more expensive than the franc, in many shops for tourists the rate will be one to one. So the payment in the pan-European currency is not particularly profitable.
A bar or two of local chocolate would be a budget option. Despite the fact that cocoa beans were not grown in Switzerland, it was in this country that for the first time managed to create a solid chocolate bar. Today in Davos you can buy a hundred different chocolates, ranging from trivial milk bars and ending with highly detailed chocolate figures or sweets with a variety of fillings. You can also buy beautiful author's candy wrappers with views of the Alps. The most famous manufacturers are Frey, Callier, Suchard, and Teuscher. If you are looking for the greatest benefit, then pay attention to the chocolates in ordinary grocery stores. It is here that there are often promotions in which discounts can reach a third of the original price. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
Active and curious children who are ready for adventures and new discoveries will love Davos. There are not too many attractions and specialized children's entertainment here, but there is … Open
Basler Läckerli, which is sold in all supermarkets in Davos, will be another option for an inexpensive gift. Note that gingerbread dries quickly. So it is better to buy them before leaving and in small packaging. Local cheese will be a good purchase. Do not forget that buying odorous varieties without vacuum packaging is an extremely bad idea. The fact is that the strong smell that permeates the suitcase can be a good reason for you not to take on board the plane. So it is better to choose hard cheese as a gift. Besides, it stores longer. Emmental, Gruyere, Schabziger, and Appenzeller belong to the most popular varieties of hard cheeses. You can search for sets-assorted, which consist of several types of cheeses. Such a purchase will be inexpensive in conventional grocery stores. However, you can find options in beautifully decorated wooden packaging in a specialized gift shop. A good choice will be sets of five cheese "rolls" weighing about a hundred grams each. The cost of such sets is 5-6 francs.
Local alcohol will be another good purchase in Davos. Despite the fact that Swiss wines are almost unknown outside the country and are produced in small quantities, their quality is not inferior to the French and Spanish varieties. Petite Arvine, Fendant, Johannisberg are varieties of white wines that you should definitely taste. Pinot Noir is a fine red wine. Fans of stronger drinks should pay attention to cherry brandy Kirschwasser, vodka from pears Williams and apricot Apricotine. Also, gift bottles with whole fruit inside are sold.
Today the Davos cuisine consists of hundreds of dishes, originating from the French, Italian and German culinary traditions. There are also dishes that came from England, the United States … Open
Of course, you can buy the world-famous Swiss knives in Davos. An interesting fact is that very high-quality steel, which can keep sharpening for years, is used even for the smallest knives with a length of six to seven centimeters. You can buy both hunting and army knives, and ordinary folding household, and multifunctional tool kits for all occasions. The main thing - before buying, specify whether the purchased tool will be considered a cold weapon in your homeland. And remember that even the smallest knife-keychain must be left in the luggage before boarding the plane. It cannot be taken in hand luggage.
Davos Platz Manicure set from the famous company Victorinox will also be a good purchase. You can even engrave initials or lettering on tweezers or forceps if you want. Quality Swiss watches are also sold in Davos. However, they are very expensive. The purchase of a wall clock, in which a shepherd boy looks out every hour from a stylized chalet house instead of a cuckoo, can be an interesting solution. If you still decide to buy a wristwatch, be sure to require a certificate to confirm the authenticity. You can also buy jewelry or cosmetics from natural ingredients. Swiss herbal tea will be a good gift for relatives.

When the family checked into the hotel, the staff were also asked to formally greet Frank - the virtual boy for whom the extra bed was intended. Read this
