Hotel Interlaken

With pride, the Hotel Interlaken looks back on a long company history. Since its beginnings in the 14th century, the hotel has remained successful throughout the centuries. Where once monks and nuns took care of the physical well-being of the "returnees" of that time, today a motivated team is still ready to serve its guests in the service of hospitality.

The history and special milestones

For over 600 years, travelers from all over the world have been coming and going at today's Hotel Interlaken. In 1323, the then monastery inn first appears in the chronicles, earlier than any other hotel in Interlaken and very few in Switzerland.

For a long time, the Interlaken inn was the center of the large administrative district in the Bernese Oberland and thus the scene of some important state actions. In the venerable courtroom on the second floor, quite a few wrongdoers probably received their just punishment. Today, somewhat less explosive sessions take place there, but it serves as a seminar and conference room.

As a place of tranquility, the inspiring charm of the Interlaken Inn also enchanted two great musical celebrities: In the 19th century, the English poet Lord Byron and later also the German Romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn found their leisure here. In honor of these two important personalities, two rooms were named after them.

Today, the former monastery tavern is owned by the host family Beutler. With a lot of heart and soul, they have managed to bridge the gap between historical substance and contemporary amenities.
