Grimsel Hospiz - Historisches Alpinhotel
3864 Grimselpass

Like a castle, Grimsel Hospiz sits enthroned on the Nollen, which soars on high as a symbol of the hydropower generated from fjord-like Lake Grimsel. This building is a witness to Swiss history. It was originally mentioned back in 1142 as the country’s first guesthouse. In 1932, the new building caused a sensation as Europe’s first electrically heated hotel. Standards remain high: nearly 80 years on, the hotel is opening its doors again after another refurbishment. The familiar, rugged, crushed granite façade with red window shutters hides an interior that leaves nothing to be desired. The 28 rooms are tastefully appointed in a style reminiscent of the 1930s. The Arven- und Turmsaal provides an ideal setting for festive occasions. The Grimsel Hospiz is also a winner when it comes to cuisine: it goes without saying that only natural and regional produce finds its way onto the plate. And yet the real treasures can be found in the famous wine cellar: more than 300 wines are stored here.
