Swiss Historic Hotels - Dip into the past

Taking history into future.

It’s just a dream: Imagine that you could step into a car museum, with shining rows of polished classics, and somebody simply handed you the keys to take one for a spin. It’s more than a dream: Our classics have rooms and roofs instead of wheels and engines, and they are just waiting for you to come and try them out, to stay and enjoy. Authentic, historic hotels and restaurants, freed from the dust of the ages and expertly run in keeping with up-to-date principles of quality and service, are an irresistible experience catering for all five senses. Founded in 2004, Swiss Historic Hotels offers a steadily expanding network of such hotels and restaurants.

Our promise.

Swiss Historic Hotels brings together a wide range of hostelries steeped in history, from simple historic inns to luxurious hotel palaces. What they share is their unrivalled experience value. The buildings have maintained their historic authenticity and architectural significance – certified by experts – thanks to careful renovations and measures to preserve the past in line with accepted conservation practices. The professionalism of their hosts ensures that each hotel fully meets today’s quality standards in its respective category, and the hosts’ cultural commitment and understanding guarantees that each hotel’s history remains a vibrant part of its present.
