A country guesthouse in Küsnacht1 Night | bed & breakfast

The hotel on Lake Zurich has a proud 350-year tradition. The tower containing the quaint bar is even older, having been dated to around the 14th century. From the large terrace in front of the inn guests can enjoy splendid views of the lake and, on clear days, the snow-capped peaks of the Alps beyond. In most of the bedrooms the thick wooden support beams have been left visible, thus creating a marked contrast to the modern paintings and furniture. The restaurant serves meals on the panoramic terrace in nice weather and is known in Zurich for its excellent and varied cuisine.

A typical mountain inn1 Night | bed & breakfast

The hotel is situated near the historical Devil's Bridge on what for centuries was the main trading route across the Alps. Since completion of the Gotthard Road Tunnel in 1980, however, it has grown nearly as quiet in these parts as it was when Goethe stayed in Andermatt on his way to Italy over 200 years ago. The wood-panelled bedrooms in the friendly Swiss hotel are bright and comfortable. Regional specialities such as Urner Rösti are served in the in-house restaurant. After a fire destroyed much of the property a few years ago, it was rebuilt in the traditional Swiss style.

As guests will happily discover, the entire property has been thoughtfully designed to please the body and soul, from the gourmet restaurant in the warm, wood-panelled dining room to the full three levels of swimming pool and spa facilities. The extraordinary hotel endeavours to make a stay there an instrinsic part of the Zermatt experience. And it succeeds.

A shorefront chateau1 Night | bed & breakfast

The castle-like mansion stands directly on the shore of Lake Geneva. The oldest part of the building, the tower, was built in 1170 by the Bishop of Lausanne. Over the centuries the fortified residence housed a succession of bishops before eventually falling into disrepair in the 17th century after being damaged by a fire. Today the expertly restored chateau is a small luxury hotel that combines first-class service with a first-class location. Guests can relax in the private swimming pool, the sauna, the Mediterranean restaurant or the lake-view terrace.


French lifestyle, international culture and an unsurpassed beautiful location on the lake with the same name makes Geneva one of the most livable cities in Switzerland – but also one of the most expensive!  World history was written in Geneva during the Reformation, when the reformer Calvin introduced a harsh and strict church discipline in the city. While dancing, drinking and singing were banned, Calvin allowed an interest-based economy, which was forbidden to Christians in Catholic surroundings at that time. As a result Geneva became an important trade- and bank-bench center. Today, 200 international organizations have their headquarters in Geneva. More than 40% of the inhabitants are foreign nationals. Landmarks in Geneva are the lakefront and the Rhone, on whose bank the three-towered cathedral is located.


Day 10 to 12: Biel

From Lausanne to Erlach92 km | 1 hour 30 minutes

An island hotel on Lake Biel-Bienne2 Nights | bed & breakfast

The hotel is located on St. PeterIsle in Lake Biel-Bienne, approx. 25 km west of Bern. The structure built in 1127 was originally a Cluniac monastery before being converted into a guesthouse. An impressive array of notables have stayed at the hotel throughout its long history, including Rousseau, Goethe, Josephine Bonaparte and numerous Prussian, Swedish and Bavarian kings. Today the island is connected to the shore by a strip of land and is a conservation area. The carefully restored property combines 21st century comfort with ancient traditions, and a stay at the historical guesthouse with its unique island setting is an unforgettable experience. The restaurant is known for its selection of wines – some of which are pressed on site – and excellent fish dishes.

A rustic hotel in downtown Lucerne1 Night | bed & breakfast

The unique hotel was constructed of seven carefully restored buildings in the medieval old town of Lucerne. Every room in the inn has a character of its own, which makes guests feel as if they were staying in a private home rather than a hotel. The restaurant specializes in French cuisine, and during the summer months meals are served on the rooftop terrace overlooking the irregular medieval townscape of Lucerne and the lake beyond.
