If you are going to Grindelwald and want to stay in a historic hotel with stunning views of the mountains, look no further than the Hotel Bellevue des Alpes, a grand hotel from the 19th century that continues to attract and delight visitors. Located in the Kleine Scheidegg at the foot of the north face of the Eiger (one of the most challenging rock faces in the world where many climbers have met their deaths), it was also where the “Eiger Sanction” starring Clint Eastwood was filmed.
The hotel is in the center of a popular skiing and hiking region (Grindelwald) and is the starting point for exploring the Jungfraujoch. Just as importantly, it is still a family business which means you don’t get “chain hotel service or ambiance”. The lounges and bedrooms are cozy and decorated in an Old World style that harkens back to the days when skiing was a winter pasttime for a select few. One of the best spots at the hotel is the outdoor terrace where you can have lunch, and gaze upon the terrifying face of the Eiger. Whether you are visiting Kleine Scheidegg for relaxation or sport, you’ll find Hotel Bellevue des Alpes to be one of the most unforgettable places.
Rates for a double room start at 400 CHF.
