Why this hotel? Great location with a warm welcome

Open all year

Centrally situated in the pedestrian area of this historic 16th century small town, the Löwen is a charming boutique hotel offering traditional Appenzeller comfort and service. There is a breakfast room and those requiring half board can take a four course dinner in the nearby Romantik Hotel Säntis. There is a small lounge and terrace and throughout the hotel you will find examples of furniture painted in the traditional style. Guests may request one of the traditional style ‘Appenzeller’ rooms at the same price as the modern standard rooms (subject to availability).

The Löwen makes an excellent base to explore the Old Town with its unique and colourful buildings of which Appenzell is justifiably proud.

Discover the lakes and mountains excursions available in the wider Eastern Switzerland region here.
