Hotel The Originals & Apartments Kirchbühl (ex Relais du Silence)

The hotel has made conviviality its hallmark. The panoramic dining room is open from breakfast, when a hearty buffet is served there. You’ll also have a chance to try chef Peter Nydegger’s refined cuisine at the hotel’s gourmet restaurant, La Marmitte. Vera and Christian also offer guests the opportunity to try a few of the Berner Oberland’s specialities in more relaxed surroundings at the Hilty Stübly. Eigerness is a must-try, made from Grindelwald’s delicious produce. The Eiger Stube menu is also full of local specialities. And, last but not least, the hotel bar is perfect for a drink before or after dinner, snuggled around the fireplace for a few pleasant moments of relaxation and friendliness.

LA MARMITTE

Bernese chef Peter Nydegger, who has worked at Castello del Sole in Ascona, Haus Derby in Arosa, the Ermitage in Schönried and the Ambassador Zermatt, creates dishes that are sophisticated and imaginative. His Eigerness menu features, amongst other things, a carpaccio of Grindelwald beef with Bernese Hobelkäse cheese and truffle oil, goat cheese soup, sautéed locally-sourced veal steaks, a delicious fillet of beef, roasted foie gras, Belper Knolle, merlot sauce and much more.

EXPERIENCES

Hotel The Originals & Apartments Kirchbühl (ex Relais du Silence)

Located in the Swiss village of Grindelwald, not far from Berne, this hotel is the perfect base from which to explore the majestic area of Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

RELAXATION AND WELLNESS AT THE HOTEL

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, a steam room, and a Jacuzzi. A lovely massage room completes the experience.

EXPLORING THE JUNGFRAU-ALETSCH AREA

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.

WINTER SPORTS

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.

WANDERS THROUGH BERN

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).
