Getting to the Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) is quite an experience. No prosaic getting there by car or even by aerial cable-car but by steam-driven rack-and-pinion train. The ride there can even be made more romantic by getting to Brienz by a paddle-steamer from Interlaken plying Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.
Located in the pristine landscape of the Albula valley, today this former wellness hotel is a unique combination of hotel and apartments. In 2002 its guests bought it as a public limited company, and it has since been renovated step by step. Under new management since 2009 with Maya and Christof Steiner. Spacious architecture, very family friendly. Creative restaurant "La Peida" (Romansh for "The Muse").
The Hotel du Pillon is a historic hotel with lots of charm! Perched above the village of Les Diablerets, it has 14 rooms with breathtaking views, some of which look out onto the Diablerets Glacier and enjoy sunshine all year round. Built in 1860, the hotel is situated between Vers L'Eglise and les Diablerets on the old pass road leading up to the Col du Pillon. As the last grand hotel dating from this era, its facade is now a protected historical monument. The hotel was beautifully restored in 2007.
