The Bernese Alps is one of the most beautiful settings you can imagine. Hotel Glacier sits between high mountains, overlooking the incredible 1,800-meter-tall (5,900 ft) north face of rock and ice of the Eiger. It's hard to complain about having a view on the most emblematic sight of the Swiss Alps!
The Swiss Alpine village Grindelwald is a famed winter destination and serves home to Hotel Glacier. A 4-star boutique getaway housed in a log chalet with only 28 rooms and suites. The hotel comes from humble beginnings. First, it used to shelter sheep in its stables and later hosted guests in a simple B&B in its previous life. Finally, in 2018 a chic, architect-designed hotel was unveiled by the young entrepreneur couple, Justine and Jan Pyott.
The hotel retains the warmth and coziness of traditional mountain huts, but it raises the bar in the design department. Modern features like brass decors are richly used to contrast the wooden elements. The restaurant features Grindelwald Glacier-inspired crystal lamps and mountain-shaped patterns on its walls among comfy velvet sofas.
