After spending the day exploring the cycle tracks and hiking paths of the Swiss Alps, a little spa is the perfect place to unwind in peace and quiet. The hotel is home to a Finnish sauna (90°C), Sanarium (65°C) and steam bath (100% humidity at 50°C).

Tips from your hotelier


During the summer, guests can go on excursions to explore the massif, home to the Eiger, the Mönch, the Jungfrau and the Great Aletsch Glacier. A spectacular hiking trail leads from Eggerberg all the way to Ausserberg, running along the Bisse de Gorperi and the Bisse de Niwärch, old water channels that in places are 800 years old. A lover of the mountains, Christian will be able to advise you on the best routes through this majestic area, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Especially the Aletsch Forest, which is one of the most beautiful mountain forests in Switzerland, and the Lower Aare-Glacier.

Tips from your hotelier


During the winter, the mountainous terrain around Grindelwald becomes a playground. Winter sports fans can enjoy themselves to the full between Grindelwald and Wengen, especially on the slopes of the Kleine Scheidegg, Lauberhorn and Männlichen. The legendary Lauberhorn slopes, for example, offer riders a descent which is over 1000 m long - the longest in the world.
Aerial view of Bern city near The Originals Hotels

Tips from your hotelier


The Swiss capital looks out over the Alps, tucked in a meander of the Aare river, with its medieval city centre (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site) drawing in lovers of old stone buildings, and the Paul Klee Centre attracting fans of modern art. Shopaholics and night owls will love its six kilometres of arcades, lined with boutiques and trendy bars. During the summer months, the river is taken over by swimmers, and the city practically becomes a seaside resort. Don’t miss out on the Clock Tower (Zytglogge), Prison Tower (Käfigturm), the Renaissance fountains, or the Bern Minster (Münster).
