Alpinhotel Grimsel Hospiz

The centuries old Grimsel Hospice is located in the midst of a bleak and rocky landscape, on the turquoise waters of an artificial lake. From the former defiant miner's home an extremely elegant hotel emerged after comprehensive renovations, a place made for aesthetes and lovers of nature. With a panoramic lounge, a fireplace lounge, bar, restaurant, seductive wine cellar and cosy rooms that include every possible kind of comfort. This inn, on the Piedmont-Burgundy trade route, was mentioned in documents as early as 1142. Built in 1932 between two dam walls after the old hospice had been flooded, this was the first electrically heated hotel in Europe. Horgen Glarus furniture from the 30's. The stone pine and tower halls testify to the former construction style. The large wine cellar came into being because of the mule trains and is lovingly maintained.
