Take the “Stüva” of the Hotel Fex (page 25), for example. The traditional panelled restaurant with roaring open fire serves regional specialities – such as the authentic Fex fondue – along with delicious wines. The Berghotel Ofenhorn (page 51) also pays homage to gastronomic tradition in its own way. This hotel dating from the belle époque showcases regional Valais dishes that reveal the influence of neighbouring Italy. Guests enjoy a completely different palette of flavours at the Gasthof zum Hirschen (page 56). The “Historic Hotel of the Year 2014” celebrates the traditional country cuisine of the Zurich Region using the freshest natural produce.

A journey in a tower room. If the walls of the tower room at the Hotel Waldhaus in Sils Maria could speak, they would no doubt have plenty to say. For example, that Hermann Hesse described the lake-strewn plateau of the Upper Engadin as “probably the most beautiful landscape with the most powerful effect on me”. Or that Marc Chagall fell in love with the magical quality of the light here at first sight. The walls of the tower room – and indeed all the other rooms – keep their secrets. Visitors today hear little more about the many illustrious guests of the Waldhaus beyond the fact they have stayed. But then discretion is the byword of this hotel, founded over 100 years ago and still owned by the same family.

22

Swiss Historic Hotels.

Josef Giger, great-great-grandfather of the current owners, opened the Waldhaus on 15 June 1908 as the hotel of his dreams: a fairy-tale castle with towers and parapets, oriel windows and little balconies, towering over the village of Sils and the treetops. A hotel in grand style with a discreet breath of luxury.


If the décor was the height of fashion at the time, today it recalls all the charm of the long-gone belle époque. The brothers Claudio and Patrick Dietrich – the fifth generation of the family to run the hotel – ensure that traditions are maintained and that guests arriving at the Waldhaus embark on an enchanting trip in time. Highlights include the salon with its “WelteMignon” mechanical piano, which replays music from 100-year-old piano rolls recorded by famous pianists; the velvet-covered armchairs in the rotunda; the waiters bearing the hotel’s original period silver cutlery; and the marble staircase with its thick carpet leading up to the tower room.

The Hotel Waldhaus evokes all the charm of a bygone age – from the stylish dining room to the impressive staircase with period chandeliers, backdrop for many a wedding photograph.

Speaking of style: this shows not only in the décor, but in a philosophy of hospitality revealed on arrival. Guests are not merely checked in, but warmly welcomed – by a member of the family that owns the hotel.

Between 1949 and 1961, the Nobel prize-winning author Hermann Hesse spent 370 days at the Hotel Waldhaus. The annual “Sils Hesse Days” are among the region’s many popular cultural events.

The tower rooms of other Swiss hotels would also have many stories to tell – although none will give up their secrets. Guests invariably fall for their period charm, however, just as they fall in love with the glorious views. The sight of the sparkling waterfall from the Grandhotel Giessbach, for example, the impressive mountain scenery around the Romantik Hotel Schweizerhof in Flims, the view of shimmering Lake St. Moritz from Badrutt’s Palace Hotel: the perfect match in every case, sure to melt the heart of any guest.

Pontresina: Hotel Saratz À

The Saratz deftly blends nature and architecture, Engadin hotel tradition and modern design to create a uniquely refreshing ambiance. Built in 1865 in period style in the heart of Pontresina, the four-star-superior hotel has evolved organically to stylish ­effect. Careful renovation and an ­elegant extension won plaudits for the hotel, which has retained its historical charm – notably in the exquisite art nouveau dining room. +41 (0)81 839 40 00 info@saratz.ch www.saratz.ch

24

Poschiavo: Hotel Albrici  Occupying a palatial 17th-century building on Poschiavo’s main square, this gem of a hotel charms guests with its nostalgic atmosphere and warm Italian-style welcome. Careful conservation of the magnificent rooms won the Albrici an award from ICOMOS.
