Welcome to Swiss Historic Hotels

  Taking history into the future
x x

Switzerland is full of historic hotels, guest houses and restaurants. Many of these valuable Swiss cultural and historical treasures have until recently lain hidden away. History meant dusty, old, out of fashion.

For a few years now, an increasing number of guests and hotel keepers have rediscovered the charisma, attraction and charm of these objects. Buildings and rooms have been dusted down and in keeping with the modern principles of friendly service and quality, these „guest houses“ are irresistible.

Motto: Patina, not dust.

Time Travel - En route to historic hotels in Switzerland

Time Travel - En route to historic hotels in Switzerland

Ursula Bauer, Jürg Frischknecht and Andrea Badrutt

“Time travel” presents five journeys to 47 historic hotels in Switzerland at various times of the year. Authors Ursula Bauer and Jürg Frischknecht take their inspiration from the leisurely and deliberate pace of travelers of the past. They point out gems and unexpected options along the way, quote contem-porary anecdotes and reports that illustrate how outlandish and hazardous traveling in Switzerland could be in days gone by. Andrea Badrutt reveals the scenic splendors of the hotels’ settings in his stunning photographs and lures readers into the Belle Époque of traveling in style with his pictures of hotel interiors. Roland Flückiger-Seiler provides knowledgeable vignettes on the history of each hotel.

The book "Time Travel" is also available as English Edition.
