150th anniversary

The founding couple of the Central Sporthotel Davos, great-great-grandmother and father of today's hotelier family were innkeepers, wine merchants, millers and muleteer at the same time. Mathias Vetsch drove his horse and cart over the Flüela Pass in summer and winter to fetch wheat from the Adige Valley and wine from the Valtellina. Sometimes he also took one or more passengers with him, who were catered for by his wife Anna-Katharina, and so the former Gasthaus zur Tobelmühle became a hotel for passers-by. When the Davos landscape doctor, Alexander Spengler, discovered the special features of the Davos mountain climate and Davos gained fame as a health resort for all lung and respiratory complaints, in the entrourage of the sick, adventurous guests also came to Davos, the Tobelmühle hotel for passers-by was gradually converted and enlarged into the Central Sporthotel Davos.

In the meantime, the Alps had become a popular summer and winter vacation and recreation area. Skiing became a fashionable sport. Winter sports have continued to develop over the years and have taken on many new facets. Today, summer retreats, hiking and mountaineering are being rediscovered. The Central Sporthotel Davos has changed with Davos and has evolved from a simple restaurant into the Central Sporthotel Davos. Today, in the 5th generation, it is run by the youngest hotelier in the family, Patricia M. Guyan.
