Switzerland is full of historic hotels, guest houses and restaurants. Many of these valuable Swiss cultural and historical treasures have until recently lain hidden away. History meant dusty, old, out of fashion.
For a few years now, an increasing number of guests and hotel keepers have rediscovered the charisma, attraction and charm of these objects. Buildings and rooms have been dusted down and in keeping with the modern principles of friendly service and quality, these "guest houses" are irresistible.
Motto: Patina, not dust.
And so it was that at the beginning of 2004, authentic historic hotels and restaurants came together under the name «Swiss Historic Hotels». These «Landmarks» are the embodiment of each region's exciting history; revealing wonderful natural and cultural experiences; the cuisine and wine cellars offering mouthwatering delicacies. All five senses are catered for.
Within a few years it should be possible to enjoy unforgettable experiences in a dense network of these Swiss «watering holes».
