Recommended by Switzerland Tourism

Well located hotel on the Monte Verità in the Bauhaus style. Founded by idealistic naturalists and vegetarians, it is still a place of encounter, philosophy and ideas today. Extensive renovations have been carried out in 2008. Restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine, fine dining room and terrace with a gorgeous view.

For lovers of Historic Hotels

Enthusiastic members of the vegetarian colony discovered the Monte Verità above Ascona at the beginning of the 20th century and saw it as the location for their utopian vision of a different world. Baron von der Heidt developed the building as a cultural centre in 1926. Thanks to renovations, the architectural and ideological influences of this building's 100-year history shine in new splendour in a balance between rationality and imagination today.
