Personal moments with the host.


A paradise for humans and animals.

Once a week, Paul-Marc Julen, host of the Romantik Hotel Julen, takes guests to visit his flock of sheep under the Matterhorn north face. 

Julen’s flock roams freely next to the Schwarzsee, at an altitude of 2,400 metres.

A little piece of paradise – I couldn’t imagine a healthier life than the one our animals have.
