#4 of 18 in Things to do in Davos
The Jakobshorn is a mountain of the Albula Alps, overlooking Davos in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. It is also one of the five skiing regions of the Davos Klosters Mountains, offering 14 pistes.Located at the northern end of the range between the Dischmatal and Sertigtal, the Jakobshorn is served by a two-part cable car running from Davos Platz. Once on the mountain there are three chairlifts, one short cable car, and one T-Bar. Since 1995 there has also been a two-person chair-lift, running from near the base station to the near the bottom of Usser Isch.There are a variety of pistes on the Jakobshorn—blue, red and black—and the mountain is renowned for being a centre for snowboarding; Bolgen provides an illuminated super pipe.Pistes are very wide and the area is popular with novice skiers, there are however a number of black terrains for the more adventurous skier. The main two lifts also open during the summer, from July–October, and there are many walks on the Jakobshorn.The Jakobshorn is also a favoured take-off point for hang-gliders and snowkiters.

  • From the Jakobshorn has my very nice and wide and unique views of our Alps. You can stretch your legs is excellent. What is important is: in the car, the bikes have priority in the summer. Saying that one likes a 1/2 hour could wait on the valley station.

  • This really does bother to do. Very nice view of the mountains and glaciers. Pretty descent. Sun Tan lotion. Drinks and food is expensive as in the entire Switzerland, you know it. We got the entrance free of charge through our hotel. Recommended to do in the summer. Also for bikers very well.
