About the hotel

Thomas and Jasmin

We look forward to welcoming you to our mountain hotel on Schynige Platte. We hope you enjoy the restaurant, the terrace and our self service with a magnificent view of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau.

If you would like to experience a magnificent sunrise or sunset then stay with us in our nostalgic rooms that have changed little from your grandparents days.

The Hotel

Welcome to our mountain hotel, which not only offers a nuance of nostalgia but also fantastic views of the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau and more. Spacious rooms with 2 or 3 beds.
Enjoy the old-fashioned feel of the over 100-year-old mountain hotel, the luxury of tranquillity and the stunning Alpine world of the Bernese Oberland. You’ll be enchanted by the ambiance of bygone days.
An Alpine glow in your room, rest and relaxation at its very best.
Old chests of drawers with marble tops, rustic beds and duvets, a porcelain basin and water jug for washing – all the olf-fashioned fittings create an authentic, old world ambience. And naturally with no telephone and certainly no television. But who needs television with such a sensational sunset and sunrise?
