Some people dream of flying. I have always dreamed of a bed in the wilderness. Now I lie on damask cushions and watch the waterfall as he spits thundering glacier water into the lake. The shirred curtains on my wide open patio door give off a pretty stage curtain for the natural spectacle that the Giessbach falls perform under my noses. Only a few hours ago, photographer Florian and I have arrived Grandhotel Giessbach 4023233417 3395469782 © Florian Jaenicke

Since The house occupies this place in the sun. At that time, citizens and nobles, mainly from England, traveled to the Swiss mountains to hover over the things in specially designed beautifull hotels. Welcome to the Belle Époque! 4023233417 The “Giessbach” is only the first of six stops on our time travel to (). Century, when alpine tourism became very popular. I also wanted to go back to the mountains, but not in holiday resorts full of pensions, which could also make a career as cuckoo clocks.

After the dessert, we roll (or rather roll) into one of the salons with English floral wallpaper; a few guests play chess, others leaf through the books off the shelf – like Tolstoy or Nietzsche, who also sought silence here.

But above all, it is the nature of the Rosenlauital that fascinates Frau Kehrli, she walks as often as possible. Also, because the mountains ruffled the head of man: “It's good to look at things that are bigger than oneself,” says Ms. Kehrli. “Then the worries get smaller.” Radical could hardly be the contrast to the imposing nature in this playful fin-de-siècle hotel.
