Jeremias Gotthelf Centre

Jeremias Gotthelf was the pen name of a pastor and novelist in the Emmental whose depictions of 19th-century country life made him one of Switzerland’s best-loved writers. In his carefully restored former home in Lützelflüh, the Gotthelf Centre, which opened in August 2012, beautifully evokes the period.

Hotel Rosenlaui

Nearly 230 years ago, the landlord and landlady of the Rosenlaui welcomed their first guests. Today, the guesthouse offers everything that 'modern people' might need: a good way of life amidst a fascinating mountain world. Countless hiking trails through the ruggedly-romantic Reichenbach/Rosenlaui valley, in the fascinating Chaltenbrunnen moor landscape and across the Grosse Scheidegg to Grindelwald (walkers, bus or cyclists).

Nearly 230 years ago, the landlord and landlady of the Rosenlaui welcomed their first guests. And in the time-honored “Rosenlaui” you feel catapulted back to the good old Belle-Époque days as soon as you cross the threshold.
