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.
