Burned Out in Davos Seeking Refuge Near Mann’s Magic Mountain

The World Economic Forum has a troubled twin down the road from Davos where burned-out executives seek refuge in a clinic with all the trappings of Thomas Mann’s “Magic Mountain.”

“Most of our patients come here in pretty poor shape,” said Mattias Bulfoni, who runs Clinica Holistica Engiadina, 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Davos. “Some of them aren’t even able to drive a car any more, most of them have a sleeping disorder. Some take drugs or have alcohol problems.”
