GRAND HOTEL & SPA – INTERLAKEN
In the middle of the 19th Century as Switzerland was coming to the world’s attention as a travel destination, an enterprising young entrepreneur Eduard Ruchti, at the ripe age of 22 bought a lodging house with a location in the heart of Interlaken which had been the home of a physician, and after operating it as the Pension Victoria for eight years, hired local architects Friedrich Studer and Horace Edouard Davinet to completely redesign the property, opening the Hotel Victoria in 1865. Then, 30 years later in 1895, he acquired the adjacent Hotel Jungfrau and joined them together, liking the two hotels by a common entrance under a distinctive glass dome and an impressive façade. The new grand hotel attracted the exclusive clientele of traveling industrial magnates, writers and royalty then making Interlaken a world famous resort stop on the Switzerland Grand Tour. In 2015, the Hotel Victoria Jungfrau is celebrating its 150th Anniversary.
The Victory-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa is a 5-star luxury property dating from the Belle Époque and one of the most beautiful in Switzerland for its setting and traditional style. All the rooms have distinctive designs with fine fabrics and décor, bright large windows for picturesque views, from classic traditional to contemporary, with elegant interiors and spacious marble bathrooms. Rooms offer a choice of views, either looking across the valley to the eternally snow-capped peaks of the Jungfrau Mountain joined by the Monch and Eiger or to the Harder Kulm mountain which overlooks Interlaken.
The Restaurant La Terrasse with 15 GaultMillau points offers refined international cuisine in first-class style. Enjoy unique taste compositions in contemporary gourmet cuisine, and indulge in the atmosphere of Interlaken with piano music, or tantalize the taste buds with a Sunday Barbecue brunch. The Restaurante Quarante-Uno presents Italian inspired cuisine in a modern ambiance with a full wine list and Sommelier. In the summer, the newly opened Victoria Terrace Lounge invites you to enjoy the sunshine and views of the mountains, while the Victoria Bar is the year round spot to enjoy cocktail or a glass of champagne in a relaxed atmosphere which has been entertaining exclusive guests for a century and a half.
The Hotel Victoria-Jungfrau was featured in the television dating show “The Bachelor” as an iconic romantic location and is well situated for all the activities Interlaken and the surrounded area offers. Cruise the lakes of Thun or Brienz, paraglide from the top of the Harder Kulm and land right at the doorstep of the hotel, or ride the rails through the solid rock of the Eiger to the legendary Jungfraujoch, the highest rail station in the world and glacier views, or the cable ride to the Schilthorn Piz Gloria with its new James Bond Experience and famed revolving restaurant.© Bargain Luxury Travel
