Overnight stay at a monument

Enjoy a vacation within the 200-year-old walls of a small Ticinese village. Or in a sunburnt ancient wooden house in the middle of a pasture. Or perhaps in a historic Maiensäss (mountain pasture and hamlet used in summer).

Mine Silo at Herznach

A new chapter in the mining history of the Frick valley commenced in 1937 with the opening of the Herznach mine. The site of the decommissioned mine is in private ownership today. The silo has been converted to a residential building offering bed & breakfast; sections of the gallery railway have been restored to working order and an ammonite collection displays the finds that have been made underground.

Such a drastic overhaul was worthwhile: the 17.5-meter-high iron ore silo was transformed into a gem, likely to surprise guests with its incomparable atmosphere.
