Surmount your expectations
This is the highest hotel in the Swiss Alps located 3048 metres above sea level. The hotel took ten years to build and was completed in 1907. Two observatories were constructed in 1996 one on each of the tall towers. They allow astronomers to take advantage of the clear air and conditions and observe the galaxies in exceptional detail. The observatories are so good that students and professors from the University of Cologne go there to study. Your room is furnished with all natural materials and soft pine woods while the twin tower suites have panoramic views of the Matterhorn or Monte Rosa and the surrounding glaciers. After a restful night, wake up to a mountain dawn and the sounds of free-range ibex and chamoi. Despite being on a mountain the restaurant serves high quality cuisines and Swiss favourites; dine on the sun terrace for views of Monte Rosa massif, the Liskamm, the Breithorn and the magical Matterhorn.
