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 Bregaglia mountain village of Soglio, surrounded by a wonderful historic garden, this hotel hails from the 17th century. It has been under the same management since1989. Rooms are decorated from four different centuries. Local specialities are served in the restaurant Sala, while barbeques are held in the garden and whatever the heart desires is served between the tall hedges.
This extraordinary resort is a world of its own and comprises eight modern buildings around the valley station of the Laax mountain rail. 122 stylish & comfortable apartments with 4 to 8 beds, shops, bars and various restaurants are all part of the complex – and whether fast or gourmet food in a restaurant, there’s something for all tastes. Ski in & out, plenty of green, adjacent to biking and hiking paths and labelled “Families welcome”.
