Latest Updated: 31st of May
After being closed for external guests since the 22nd of December 2020 we are finally able to open up our hotel for everyone. The numbers of infected person are going down as we speak and we hope it stays that way, the back and forth has been hard to navigate even if we have been lucky with very understanding staff and guests the whole season.
From the 31st of May, the Swiss Government has decided that we are allowed to greet external guests to our premises. This means that even during rainy days you can grab a beer in our cosy Bar or Restaurant, the weather ain’t stopping you anymore!
