First time at the Vaillant Arena, expected it to be bigger for some reason, maybe on tv it looks as if it was larger. Beautiful arena in a beautiful setting. Son loved playing there, claims the ice was perfect 👍 Looking forward to coming back again to see the big boys play, maybe against ZSC would be an exciting event... More

Why is it so hard to get tickets for "proper seats" rather than standing area. You would think that all of the seats were being allocated and reserved for "special fans". Why no transparency? I bought a ticket on a return visit to Davos, but as I remembered my last horrible experience decided not to go!

The most beautiful ice hockey stadium there is in Europe. A lot of people visit this landmark because of it's architecture and the fantastic sports that is played inside.

Sure the building looks splendid, but the standing space was not worth the money for the ticket. I came to watch the Spengler Cup (haven't even heard of this). The off the ice (ditty) music was just 3 songs being played over and over....no real variety. From where I was standing, I could hardly see anything meaningfully. There wasn't even... More

It's not a big place ( 6 thousand people ) but is a nice place to visit. But make sure you arrive very early or buy a ticket whit a seat number. If don't and the place where crowded its impossible to watch the game. You just can't see nothing .

It's the famous ice stadium in Davos, where HCD plays and the yearly Spengler Cup takes place. Very nice stadium with good view from all places

We caught the Davos/Lausanne hockey game last night and what a treat. It was wonderful to see the venue filled with mostly locals, cheering on their revered Hockey Club Davos (created in 1921). While Davos won 3 to 0, everyone enjoyed watching their local favorite sport. The Vaillant arena is made primarily from wood, and is an amazing piece of... More

I've been to many hockey arenas in my day but this is a whole different experience! The architecture alone is beautiful. There is not a bad seat in the place and the game entertainment is amazing. The fans are loud and into the action--regardless of which teams are playing! This is a must-see when visiting Davos!

We came to see Geneva play, we saw Geneva win the Spengler Cup. Made of wood, gives a nice and warm look. The building is shapes like a cathedral, a cathedral of hockey. There are dozens of entrances, so make sure you look at your tickets to make sure you dont wait at the wrong door.
