The Next Chapter of a Great Story
A new Belle Époque
Back when travellers were not tourists but adventurers, the alpine village of Grindelwald became the go-to destination for an entire generation that sought to discover the world. For over two hundred years now the town at the foot of the Eiger has been host to the world, while always staying true to it’s quiet and close-to-nature alpine values. Even so, just as the town has influenced its visitors, so have the visitors left an imprint on the town. The face of the town has changed, and the perhaps most beautiful display of architecture bridging traditional and modern is the Grand Regina.
After 120 glamorous years it is now time to make the move and fundamentally restore the Grand Lady to new magnificence while keeping the old spirit. The project for the Alpine Resort Grand Regina stands, just as it did two centuries ago, for a new age – a new Belle Époque.
Art Nouveau meets Modernity
A visionary project based in history
From Grand Hotel to Grand Resort: the proud lady will be restored and expanded between 2015 and 2017. Five chalets with several apartments each and an annex with 15 additional apartment suites will join the original Art Nouveau building. The final touch to the resort will be its spacious 1’850 sq.m wellness area.
The new Alpine Resort Grand Regina will re-open mid 2017. Located at the center of Grindelwald, the Grand Regina will become its own little town, providing the best of everything and anything you could possibly dream of for your holiday in the Alps.
The apartments can already be purchased.

More than just a Hotel. More than just a Resort.
Your Home in the Alps
Grindelwald is a place that is shaped by its natural environment. The town’s residents have built their homes within the wild nature of the mountains and valleys, an endeavor that required willpower, persistence, daring and most of all uncompromising solidarity.
Testimony to this pivotal Swiss solidarity – “unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno” - is the Grindelwaldian Valley unification letter: In 1404 the residents of Grindelwald convened with a monk from the nearby town Interlaken to divide the rights of use for the alpine pastures amongst themselves, securing their sustainable cultivation.
This unification is still in place today, centuries later. The Grand Regina, too, has a 600 year old right to the meadows, forests, a lake and many mountain creeks. She is allowed to use their recourses to summer a total of 5 1/8 cows, whereby “one eighth cow” conforms to one goat. These numbers have remained the same since the late Middle Ages.
With every apartment a share of these rights are passed on to the buyer. The Grand Regina is more than just a hotel, it is more than just a resort; it means true, everlasting value.
