Directly on the banks of the Rhine in Klein-Basel (Lesser Basel). Comprehensive room renovations respecting the existing building structures were carried out in 2005, supplemented with Swiss-type furniture. In 2008 the 12 renovated rooms with en-suite bathrooms in the annex, complemented with Vitra furniture, were opened. The Krafft cuisine is based on local and seasonal creations, served either in the restaurant overlooking the Rhine or on the terrace.
This nostalgic Art Nouveau style building with its Belle Époque atmosphere, already described in Thomas Mann's book "Zauberberg" [Magic Mountain], opened its doors in 1900 as a luxury sanatorium and was later converted to a mountain hotel. The soul of the house, its architecture, has been preserved in its original form until today. The Villa Guarda - formerly the former doctor's residence - and the Chalet exude new splendour with their luxurious suites. With the Schatzalp train, the "Magic Mountain" is just four minutes away from the centre of Davos. Free WLAN access throughout the hotel premises, even in the Schatzalp/Strela skiing area.
The Saint Bernard dog is a special symbol of Switzerland. Everyone knows that the large and good-natured Barry saved the lives of lost mountaineers. The four-legged hero has always been bred at the Alpine Pass of Great Saint Bernhard.
Generally, museums are in big cities, or at least in highly visited villages, but hardly are they ever on a 2,100-meter-high mountain pass.
