DW Travel (March 4, 2023) – A hotel you can’t get to on your own? You’ll need a guide to reach the four-star Grimsel Hospiz Hotel in the Swiss Alps at 2,000 metres above sea level. The guide will take you up the mountain, past a hydroelectric power station and on several cable cars. The road over the Grimsel Pass is closed in winter. But at the end of it you will find yourself in the absolute silence of the mountains.
