Design Hotel Art House Basel
The design hotel Art House Basel combines the comfort of urban design with a large portion of art and creativity. 33 design rooms from the pen of renowned architects and designers offer exactly the comfort you would expect from a modern and stylish city hotel. The Mirador Rooftop Bar and the Restaurant Souvenir also provide enjoyable and inspiring hours. Thanks to its location in the trendy Steinenvorstadt district of Basel, the Art House Basel is the ideal starting point for discovering the city.
Our tip for art lovers
Art and culture are to be found on almost every corner in Basel. It is not for nothing that it is considered the Cultural Capital of Switzerland. The inspiring city on the Rhine is home to around 40 museums. Above all, the Fondation Beyeler with its exciting art exhibitions. Until 28.03.2021, the Fondation is presenting a selection of legendary paintings and sculptures under the title "The Lion is Hungry". At the centre is the painting "the hungry lion throws himself on the antelope", by Henri Rousseau. Other well-known masterpieces of classical modern and contemporary art ensure that the hunger for art is satisfied this year as well.

Hotel Alpina Parpan ***
The 3* Hotel Alpina in Parpan on the Lenzerheide impresses with its alpine charm and inspires with direct access to the slopes from the hotel. It is the small, historical details in the modern yet over 150-year-old inn that invite you to a mental journey through time.
Thanks to 37 differently designed rooms, ranging from traditional to modern to luxurious, every guest will find a room to suit his or her personal taste. The kitchen leaves nothing to be desired. In the in-house Gilde Restaurant you will be spoiled with all kinds of delicacies from the region. In summer, some of these even come from the hotel's own garden. Cordial hospitality is a top priority at the Hotel Alpina Parpan.
Our winter sports tip
The Lenzerheide region is a paradise for snow and skiing fans. Why not try something new? How about cross-country skiing? One of the best cross-country skiing areas in Switzerland is located here. Since the winter of 2017/18 there is a winter sports centre in Parpan, which also has a cross-country skiing centre with a cross-country skiing shop and rental service. No matter whether you would like to try this active sport or whether you are already a professional, the winter magic on Lenzerheide will inspire you either way.

Barabas Hotel Lucerne - special overnight stays
With Barabas Hotel we can offer you a particularly cool hotel experience. Do you love exceptional accommodation? Then the Barabas in the heart of Lucerne is just right for you. Here you sleep behind bars! The Barabas Hotel is the first prison hotel in Switzerland. But don't worry, you don't have to spend your stay at the Barabas with water and bread. After a night in jail, a rich breakfast buffet awaits you.
How about a night in a cell in pink? You can also find them in real prisons. It has been found that the colour pink soothes upset minds and this is used very specifically in prisons. But even without a fit of raving madness and a cell in pink, a night in prison is a very special experience.
The city of Lucerne itself has a lot to offer its visitors. But also city escapees and winter fans get their money's worth around Lucerne. Just a few minutes outside the city gates, Mount Pilatus in its white winter robe entices visitors with pistes, toboggan runs and snowshoe hiking trails.
A great experience for cheese lovers is a fondue chat, which is served by prior reservation from Monday to Thursday in the Bellevue Restaurant and from Friday to Sunday in the Pilatus-Kulm Restaurant.

Hotel Stans Süd
The modern 3* Hotel Stans Süd in Central Switzerland scores with an outstanding price-performance ratio. The soundproofed rooms convince with their simple comfort. A rich breakfast buffet with local products ensures a good start to the day.
Winter pleasures in the region
The nearby Titlis attracts skiers and snowboarders with numerous kilometres of slopes. But also cross-country ski runs, toboggan runs and winter hiking trails ensure untroubled hours in the glittering snow. Dive into the turquoise heart of the Titlis in the glacier grotto and hike over the Titlis Cliff Walk, the highest suspension bridge in Europe. The Titlis will definitely make your heart jump!
