brunnen switzerland

I am trying to discover name of hotel I stayed in while on a school trip 50 years ago. It was on the lakeside to the left of the boarding place for lake steamers, if you are facing the lake. On the roadside at the front of hotel were 2 petrol pumps and the road then went through a tunnel or archway. On the lake side was a terrace which was reached by a flight of stairs. Hoping to visit area again this year and would love to be able to stay there again.

Hi sinky14 and wellcome on the forum

The petrol stations there do nomore exist. I even do not remember where they were.

Some hotels do nomore exist. There are apartements now, others do. Here a few hotels which still are there:

You can find much more hotels at http://www.brunnentourismus.ch/

Brunnen changed completely within the last 50 years. The center is now pretty quite as there is a road which goes around the town. Here is an actual map: tripadvisor.de/LocalMaps-g198804-Brunnen-Are…

Was it this one? If so it remained empty for years but has just been converted into luxury flats.

It is not the Grand Hotel which sits on the cliff above the road, we are looking for the hotel below that cliff between the road and the lake, the building is still there, it's the Bellevue.

I stayed at the Bellevue three years ago, never again. I think it has now closed it is not featured on the Brunnen hotel list, nor does it feature as it has in previous years in the Kuoni Switzerland brochure. When I was last there, there was talk of the hotel being converted into apartments.

A scenic way from Geneva Airport to Brunnen, is to go via Interlaken where you get on the scenic train from Interlaken Ost (=East) to Lucerne/Luzern. The trip takes 6 hours and costs at the moment 102 francs. (The regular route Geneva Airport-Berne-Lucerne-Brunnen takes 4 hours, and has only 1 change of train, if you choose one of the trains 6 minutes after every full hour.)
