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.

The Swiss Path: The Swiss William Tell Path

Discover all 26 cantons in two days - on foot! Hike the countryside along the Swiss Path around Lake Uri in a 2-day swoop. A special portion is the three-hour panoramic hike starting in Rütli. The hiker climbs 850 steps to Seelisberg, sought-after for its bathing lake, and hikes past the famous vantage point and back to Bauen with its Mediteranean ambiance. Arrival and return are accomplished via romantic boat rides.

Pure hiking pleasure - the trail that is dedicated to Switzerland is just as diverse as the country itself.

Grimsel Hospiz - Historisches Alpinhotel

This inn, on the Piedmont-Burgundy trade route, was mentioned in documents as early as 1142. Built in 1932 between two dam walls after the old hospice had been flooded, this was the first electrically heated hotel in Europe. Horgen Glarus furniture from the 30's.

The centuries-old Grimsel Hospice is located in the midst of a bleak and rocky landscape, on the turquoise waters of an artificial lake. After comprehensive renovations, the former defiant miners' abode was transformed into an extremely elegant hotel - a place made for aesthetes and lovers of nature. Boasts a panoramic lounge, a fireplace lounge, bar, restaurant, seductive wine cellar and cosy rooms that include every comfort.
