the oldest alpine-hotel in Switzerland

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 29, 2005

The Hotel on top of the Faulhorn with a height of 2681meters above sea-level is not only the highest alpine hotel, but also the oldest. It dates back to the year 1830 and the first tourists were taken there by horses or alpine-chairs, carried by locals. Today you may at least take the cable-car to First and have to hike the rest - about 2 hours on a partly quite steep path) in order to be able to enjoy the 360 degree-panorama with Eiger - Moench - Jungfrau - Wetterhorn - Schreckhorn - Brienzer Rothorn and many more.
The hotel and restaurant are open daily
between end of june and October 20th !!
for other dates, you better phone them in advance !!

Unique Quality: In Faulhorn-hotel you are really off the beaten path - it is besides Weberhuette the only hotel and restaurant at the hiking-path between Schynigge Platte and First.
click here for a 360 dregree-panorama from Faulhorn !

Directions: Faulhorn is between First and Schynigge Platte, you may reach it by hiking from First within 2 hours. Half of the path is almost flat, the other half is quite steep !!
