Bar and great lounge
We admit that our great lounge with its far-reaching rotunda is our favorite.
In the large stylish living room, you can meet up with friends or a newspaper. Marvel at the fairy-tale forest beyond the high windows. It is the focus of our hotel. A peaceful, private haven and public space at the same time. Reflect. Read. Play games. Dance. Talk or simply sit back and relax. At teatime, for a cocktail, or any time before or after. We tend this incomparable atmosphere like a magical garden. Most harmoniously in the late afternoon and again in the evening from 9 p.m., when the Waldhaus Trio from Slovakia plays.
Around the turn of the millennium, Basel architects Miller & Maranta extensively restored and renovated our bar. It is just to the right of the great lounge and serves lunch at noon (à la carte or half-pension). A beer on tap in the evening? Easily done. Harder to make up your mind between pure spirits, single malt whiskeys and countless other rarities. Don’t worry. Our well-trained bar staff is standing by to offer advice.
Oh, how happy is she or he, who can enjoy a little drink or three.
