Davos Platz (Platz is German for place) is the south-western part of the village of Davos, situated in eastern Switzerland at 1,558 metres (5,112 ft) above sea-level, in a valley of the East Grisons. The north-eastern part of Davos is called Davos Dorf.
The village used to be a refuge in the winter for invalids suffering from chest disease; even today, the dry air and sunshine are helpful for patients with such afflictions.
