This old building of over a hundred years has lost none of its former charm and grandeur. Visitors from around the world are enchanted with the nostalgic rooms, the impressive staircase and the sophisticated manner in which this has remained a young hotel. Still run by its founding family, this is a place where aficionados, gourmets, children, artists and nature lovers feel right at home.


An architectural landmark with a proud history, five-star ranking, 140 rooms, 220 beds and a staff of 150, this is the very idea of a grand hotel. But there is more to it than what you see at a first glance. The Waldhaus is also playful and relaxed, and very open to families and children. It is luxurious, but not opulent, vibrantly alive, but comfortably old-fashioned. And it is quite large, but run on a very personal basis. This rare and enchanting mix reflects our fiercely guarded independence. The Waldhaus is still a true family affair without any outside shareholders or managers – something which has become exceedingly rare for a hotel of its size and class in Switzerland. It gives us a chance to do things a little differently, a fact we fully exploit.


Sils-Maria is a picturesque mountain village surrounded by glorious hiking trails, pistes and cross-country ski trails. The Waldhaus – a fairy-tale castle set amidst a world-famous landscape – towers majestically above it. The hotel is virtually a monument itself, given its long history, five stars, 140 rooms and 230 beds. But it is a living monument that is to be enjoyed! Relaxed and comfortable behind its imposing façade, shaped by the diverse nature of the people and generations who have worked and stayed there.

Swiss Historic Hotel

The legendary Waldhaus, where the old is not replaced but rather reinforced, was honoured as Historic Hotel of the Year in 2005. Still personally run by the founder and owner family, the interior of this stately 1908 building has remained intact and charms the visitor with its impressive stairwell, the representative lounges and a wide variety of rooms, all offering spacious comfort.

Certified by ICOMOS

Historic hotel of the year 2005 The Waldhaus Hotel enjoys a prominent location on a wooded rocky outcrop. It was built between 1905 and 1908 from plans by the well known St Moritz hotel architect Karl Koller. After being partially destroyed by a fire in 1927, the hotel was restored to the appearance it still has today. The exterior of this stately manor, conceived to be admired from afar, renounces unnecessary decorations. The interior is all the more impressive for it, with its sequence of representative halls and parlours. There are numerous original fittings, all exceptionally well preserved, and new elements are introduced honestly and skillfully in contemporary shapes. Two other exceptional pieces of furniture dating back to the time of its construction are the crystal chandeliers and the Welte-Mignon reproducing piano. This hotel has been in the hands of the same family since its inception, and their unconditional commitment to the hotel's history, the carefully maintained interior decoration and furniture and the undivided attention guests receive here reflect an unsurpassed entrepreneurial philosophy. The Waldhaus is quite simply an example for the Swiss hospitality industry.
