Secret Passages in the Alps?

We will be in Davos next month - have you ever toured any of the secret passages in the Alps - do you know of any near Davos?

Thank you,
Donnae

What exactly are you referring to with "secret passages"? I hope you know that any high passes will be snow covered and you won't be able to do much hiking at all. Right now it looks like even in Davos might snow be on the ground ;-)

Just came back from a long ride through the Engadin. Lots of snow on the ground in Klosters, St. Moritz, etc. The Julier Pass and Ofen Pass are open all year round.

I have a feeling your worried about being bored in Davos. You can do day trips over the Bernina, see Guarda, Pontresina, St. Moritz, Sils and go for nice walks along the lakes around Davos. You'll find that relaxing in the fresh alpine air is just as rejuvenating as scrambling from sight to sight.

There was a recent show on the television about how prudent Switzerlund was prior to the war and how they made bunkers, etc that camouflaged in the mountain sides.

We are not afraid of boredom (silly schuler) just who knows if we will ever make it back and don't want to miss anything spectacular.

Honestly some relaxation sounds just great.

Thank you!

Bonkers, you meant bunkers! And I thought you meant a hidden pass.

I have a gift certificate for a bunker tour in my area and probably will never use it. I don't know if there are any bunker tours in Davos. Might have to ask the info office there. By the way, the word "bunker" is German too.
