THE DESTINATION FOR YOUR SUMMER DREAMS
HOTEL & GARDENS
For nearly 120 years now, people have been coming to stay at the Alpenrose Hotel and Gardens in the town of Wilderswil. Guests come here to enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains and glaciers, as well as to experience and relax in the amazing gardens.
top attractions in Wilderswil
Early in 2015 the new owner of the Alpenrose hotel, Carl Cronje realized the potential of the gardens to become one of the top attractions in Wilderswil. The hotel gardens suffered significant damage during the August 2005 flooding when the Luetschine river bursts its banks and destroyed many features as well as established plants and trees.
Carl personally re-designed a brand new garden plan and in March 2015 started a 3-month full-time re-landscaping of the grounds.
The gardens are open for all visitors
Fortunate to have own Mini Forest
It’s not just gardening at the Alpenrose Hotel; we are fortunate to have our own mini forest. We have about 20 full-grown trees, some of which are more than 200 years old.
Recently a new recreational area was established in the “forest”, with space to relax as well as a 9-seater hot tub.The last garden to be created was the establishment of an Alpine rockery in 2016. This links the front and back gardens and guests are able to enjoy some very interesting Alpine plants and pines, as well as two beautiful and gracious Japanese maple trees.
The gardens are open for all visitors, both hotel guests as well as others. We can also host outdoor events, parties and weddings with lots of lawns and open spaces. We look forward to your visit and our gardens as well as the stunning mountains and glaciers are waiting for you!
