The only Ryokan Hotel in Europe is located on Hasenberg mountain in the canton of Aargau. Now, Japan is only 20 minutes from Zurich! Staying at a Ryokan hotel is always a special experience, for guests do feel as if they really were in far-away Japan.
The hut lies at an altitude of 2140 meters, on a terrace named Poggio del Giübin that dominates the upper Piumogna valley. Belonging to the SAC Section Ticino, the Campo-Tencia hut is the first mountain hut in the Ticino Alps. It was constructed way back in 1912 at the foot of the summit bearing the same name. The Campo Tencia hut is renowned for its excellent cuisine and large choice of both hot and cold Ticino-style specialities served throughout the day in amicable ambiance.
Allow yourself to experience the time of Diogenes and spend one night in a 15’000-liter-barrel (from May to October). Each barrel sleeps six persons and is equipped with beds, mattresses, and wooden blankets (24 beds in total).
In this small hotel you may find peace and relax in rooms flooded with light. But there is much more to appreciate: pure nature, views of the lake and the Alps, outstanding beds, regional treats, durable development, an authentic setting, and warm atmosphere.
