Great lounge and bar

Favorite places

Our lovely great lounge with its far-reaching rotunda, whose generous windows make it seem that you are sitting in a fairy-tale forest, is like a stylish living room. It is the focus of our hotel. A peaceful private haven and public space at the same time. A place to read and reflect, play and dance, talk, meet and enjoy afternoon tea.

And, as the great lounge is such a special place, we tend its atmosphere like a magical garden.

Just next to the lounge is the bar, which Basel architects Miller & Maranta extensively restored and renovated. Here you can enjoy a beer on tap, study the splendid selection of pure spirits, single malt whiskeys and other rarities. You can also have lunch here, either à la carte or half-pension.

The gentle airs of the Waldhaus Trio drift through the bar and the lounge in late afternoon and from 9 p.m.




Oh, how happy is she or he, who can enjoy a little drink or three.
