This historic hotel from 1840 has the best panoramic location on the Scheidegg Pass. It has been managed by the 5th generation of Andreas and Silvia von Almen's family since 1988, and has 100 beds. The building, its interior and its guest list are steeped in history, while the hotel is also famous for being the location where "The Eiger Sanction" starring Clint Eastwood and "North Face" with Benno Furmann were filmed.
Fabulously located historic hotel dating from 1859, with a view of the Valais Alp 4000ers (peaks over 4 000 metres). Neatly renovated and with an elegant wellness facility added in 2004, the former chalet is now a stylish, luxurious gem with original furnishings. Situated 1650m above sea level in the middle of an alpine hiking and skiing paradise. Authentic cuisine, excellent Valais wine list.
A narrow gorge, only penetrated by a few rays of sunshine at mid-day, a grotto where health seekers bathed, and arguably the most famous natural scientist as first spa physician - this is Bad Pfäfers. Today the Tamina Gorge (approx. 15 minutes from Bad Ragaz) is accessible in a more comfortable way than in the ancient past.
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.
