Special features & EventsWhere cows lived happily until the summer of 2005, our guests are pampered in winter as in summer. On the sun-drenched terrace you will enjoy the breathtaking view of the Brienzer Rothorn and the entire Rothorn range. Wedding parties with guests in high spirits as well as families on hiking or ski tours, feel very much at home at the Alphotel Schwand. Our fondue parties with live music, followed by toboggan descent into the village are special occasions indeed. Upon request, you can snowshoe with Tschudi, our guide, to the Schwand. The Schwand is located halfway down the ski run. The Alphotel offers accommdation for up to 40 persons. Double and family rooms are available.
