Hint

Intro

The centuries-old Grimsel Hospice is located in the midst of a bleak and rocky landscape, on the turquoise waters of an artificial lake. After comprehensive renovations, the former defiant miners' abode was transformed into an extremely elegant hotel - a place made for aesthetes and lovers of nature. Boasts a panoramic lounge, a fireplace lounge, bar, restaurant, seductive wine cellar and cosy rooms that include every comfort.

Description

Like a castle, Grimsel Hospiz sits enthroned on the Nollen, which soars on high as a symbol of the hydropower generated from fjord-like Lake Grimsel. This building is a witness to Swiss history. It was originally mentioned back in 1142 as the country’s first guesthouse. In 1932, the new building caused a sensation as Europe’s first electrically heated hotel. Standards remain high: nearly 80 years on, the hotel is opening its doors again after another refurbishment. The familiar, rugged, crushed granite façade with red window shutters hides an interior that leaves nothing to be desired. The 28 rooms are tastefully appointed in a style reminiscent of the 1930s. The Arven- und Turmsaal provides an ideal setting for festive occasions. The Grimsel Hospiz is also a winner when it comes to cuisine: it goes without saying that only natural and regional produce finds its way onto the plate. And yet the real treasures can be found in the famous wine cellar: more than 300 wines are stored here.

Wedding

Just as the decision to get married isn’t taken lightly, the choice of wedding venue also requires careful consideration. Grimsel Hospiz will not disappoint.

Swiss Historic Hotel

This hospice on the Piemont-Burgund trade route was mentioned in documents dating back to 1142. Rebuilt in 1932 between two dams after the flooding of the former hospice. The first electrically heated hotel in Europe. 1930's furnishings by Horgen Glarus. The building style of the time is evidenced by the stone pine and tower rooms. The large lovingly-maintained wine cellar was established because of the traders who passed by the inn.

Seminar Hotel

Ideal for exceptional conferences, this historic Alpine hotel reigns supreme in the heart of the impressive Grimselwelt: a sensuous, modern interior, large Swiss pine and tower rooms, high Alpine location next to the storage dam. Culinary emphasis on regional seasonal dishes. The famous rock cellar is stocked with 300 first-class wines. Exciting excursion programme: Gelmer funicular railway, power station tours, Trift bridge etc.
