Hotel Alpina

Run by the same family for two generations, this hotel was completely renovated in 2008. The hoteliers are also proud parents, and know what families wish for on holiday. Your personal dwelling on the village square offers family rooms, spacious balconies, a restaurant with terrace as well as a 3-room apartment. It's only a few minutes by foot to the swimming lake and to mountain rail/cableways. Free bus to the skiing area stops right in front of the hotel.
