Spending the night in the mountain air
Sleep peacefully in one of the rustically renovated rooms.
Our family, the Wandfluhs, built the mountain hotel on the Oeschinensee in 1892. It offers around 20 beds and 20 spots in rooms with multiple beds. The renovated rooms are captivating, with their 130-year-old charm and a love for detail. Relax with us, and leave your cell phone, laptop (and stress) in the world below. We have no WiFi, and poor cell-phone reception.
We have been classified as a “Unique Hotel” by Hotelleriesuisse since 2016.

The Oeschinensee can also be wonderful in the rain. Naturally, the radius of movement will be smaller during inclement weather than with sunshine, but you can still take walks and go on hikes if you have a good raincoat. You can warm yourself by the fireplaces in the lounge and restaurant. The lounge contains board games, books and a TV. Toys for children are also available.
