Hotel & Lounge Lago Maggiore
The Hotelcard team is doing everything to offer you even more fantastic destinations and local hotels at discovery prices.
We are very pleased to be able to introduce a special new addition to our team today. Discover the new 4* Hotel & Lounge Lago Maggiore with its exclusive location directly on the lake promenade Locarno-Muralto. Let yourself be enchanted by the southern flair of Ticino, which also has a special charm in autumn and winter.
Hotel & Lounge Lago Maggiore ****
The Hotel & Lounge Lago Maggiore is a new hotel star on Lake Maggiore. The hotel is located directly on the lake promenade of Locarno-Muralto.
Under the slogan "Active Lifestyle", the hotel is particularly aimed at sporty guests who appreciate modern design combined with a cultivated service and relaxed atmosphere.
Warm natural colours and great attention to detail create a cosy atmosphere throughout the hotel. After an active day in nature, a fire in the fireplace invites you to relax in the evening. A good glass of Ticino wine, a refreshing cocktail or a warming tea from the bar goes well with it.
Feel-good room with view
Thanks to hypoallergenic and soundproofed rooms, nothing stands in the way of a restful sleep here. The rooms are also decorated in pleasant natural tones. Fantastic views of Lake Maggiore sweeten your wake-up. A Nespresso coffee machine in the room ensures the perfect start to the day.
Offers for sports activities
Guests of the Hotel can use the hotel's own bicycles free of charge. Professional sports coaches for various sports disciplines are organised for guests on request. The spacious Technogym fitness studio rounds off the sports facilities perfectly.
Active connoisseurs will love this hotel! Even if you theoretically want to spend the whole day in this stylish hotel, it would be too bad to leave the beautiful surroundings to one side. We have put together a few tips for you in and around Locarno.

Great views from Cardada and Cimetta
Whether on foot, with snowshoes, or with the cable car designed by Mario Botta: an excursion to Cardada and Cimetta is also worthwhile in autumn and winter. A breathtaking panorama opens up from the summit. In good weather, from here you can see the lowest point in Switzerland, Lake Maggiore, and the highest point in Switzerland, the Dufour Peak in the Monte Rosa massif. Hikers get their money's worth here.

Autumnal Verzasca Valley
Where the tourist masses crowd in summer, peace and quiet returns in autumn and winter. Even the Ponte dei Salti in Lavertezzo can be enjoyed alone at this time of year, with a little luck. The last yellow autumn leaves form a unique play of colours with the emerald green waters of the Verzasca, and sometimes the snow even sugars the landscape. The Verzasca Valley is just waiting to be explored.

A touch of Italianità and lots of pleasure in Locarno
Locarno is a place for connoisseurs. Even in winter it is fun to enjoy a café or an aperitivo in the Piazza Grande. By the way, the best gelati are available at the Gelateria Vera Muralto. It tastes so good that even at low temperatures you don't want to miss it. The Gelateria is also less than five minutes' walk from the Hotel & Lounge Lago Maggiore.
A real insider tip for connoisseurs is the Ristorante Bottega del Vino in Locarno. In a former pharmacy, guests are now pampered with culinary delicacies.

Pre-Christmas Lake Maggiore
Even if this year, unfortunately, most of the Christmas markets have been cancelled, the glitter of lights on Lake Maggiore will still create a festive atmosphere.
During the Christmas season, many Ticino villages display artistic nativity scenes. From 13 December to Epiphany Day on 6 January, if everything goes according to plan, more than thirty nativity scenes will create a very special Christmas atmosphere in the village of Vira Gambarogno. In the tranquil village of Moghegno in the Maggia Valley, a Nativity Trail invites visitors to stroll through the Christmassy village.

Snowshoeing in Valle Rovana
When the first snow wraps the landscape in a wintery dress, the hour of the snowshoe hikers strikes. A brand new snowshoe trail leads through the snow-covered landscape of Valle Rovana, a side valley of the Maggia Valley. From the village of Campo Vallemaggia, situated at 1,290 metres above sea level, the trail leads via Cavà, the Corte Nuovo and back to the starting point. The circular walk takes about 2 hours. The Valle Rovana impresses with its largely untouched nature. It is the ideal place to take a deep breath and recharge your batteries for everyday life.

Whether you are looking for pleasure or sporting challenges or both, the region around Lake Maggiore will inspire you. Thanks to your Hotelcard you can benefit from exclusive discounts. Recharge your batteries for the dark time of the year and enjoy late autumn or winter in the sunny lounge of Switzerland.
