Amsteg is a great place to stay to get another, quieter perspective on the Gotthard region. This unique hotel dating from 1788 has just been sensitively and stylishly restored to its former splendour, making it and its venerable speciality restaurant well worth a visit. Elegant rooms, a restaurant with fine cuisine and dedicated conference facilities make this an ideal base for guests seeking peace and relaxation while soaking up the atmosphere of days gone by.
Back in 1788, this romantic inn was one of Switzerland’s first post offices and lodged famous guests such as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Hans Christian Andersen. Numerous antiques recall the halcyon days of mail-coach travel over the Gotthard Pass. The hotel’s extensive grounds, its rooms with their period furniture and the cosy dining room have a nostalgic appeal all of their own.
