The Hotel & Guesthouse Alpina will soon be 100 years old. A whiff of time, when you consider how old the stone slabs on the roof are: millions of years. But in all likelihood the Hotel & Guesthouse Alpina is not about time, but about timelessness.
It is quite possible that you, our valued guests, will for a while forget time. You will not be constantly thinking about what you should do tomorrow or what you are missing today. It is quite possible that you will just simply be here. Entirely within yourself, entirely with us.
We do our best to make that happen. We, Jasmin and Marco Kühne with family, as well as the 15-strong "Alpina Team". We have the good fortune to run this hotel in the fourth family generation. And hopefully we will also be fortunate enough to welcome you soon.
