Deutsche Heilstätte Davos


  • The history of the “Hochgebirgsklinik Davos” goes back to 1898, when Herman and Olga Burchard founded the German Heilstätte Association in Davos. He opened the clinic for 80 tuberculosis patients just three years later.


  • From 1919 onwards, recovery treatments were offered for German children.


  • In 1931, the “German Sanatorium Davos” was expanded to 200 beds.​


  • From the 1960s onwards, the clinic's offerings were significantly expanded:

  • In 1964 the asthma and allergy clinic was opened.

  • The eye department opened in 1970.

  • In 1972, tuberculosis treatment was stopped.​

  • 1981 Opening of a children's clinic.

  • 1987 Expansion to include a clinical school and a mother-child ward.


  • New clinic building between 1990 and 1994

  • 1998 Centenary celebration of the Hochgebirgsklinik Davos Foundation and opening of a parent-child ward.


  • In 2003, the Davos Allergy Clinic - Center for Children and Adolescents was added. Two years later, the “Nederlands Astma Centrum Davos” began operating at the Davos-Wolfgang location and the Valbella station was opened as a result of the closure of the “Valbella Altitude Clinic”.


  • The clinic filed for bankruptcy on September 9, 2013 and survival was in jeopardy for a while.


  • In May 2014, Klaus-Michael Kühne took over the properties of the Hochgebirgsklinik Davos through his Kühne Real Estate AG. This meant that the renovation of the Davos High Mountain Clinic was successfully completed.


  • Today, the Hochgebirgsklinik Davos is the largest rehabilitation clinic in Graubünden in the areas of cardiology, pulmonology, dermatology, allergology and psychosomatics for adults, children and adolescents.
