We spent the second part of our trip to Switzerland in Wilderswil at the Alpenrose hotel and gardens. Wilderswil is a little village very close to Interlaken and its beautiful with plenty of things to do nearby. This makes it a great location to stay when you are visiting the area.
The Alpenrose Hotel and Gardens
The Alpenrose hotel and gardens is one of those places you immediately feel at home at. We got off our train and walked a few minutes up the road and we were there. This is great if you are usiog the train to explore the area like we did. Its one of the oldest buildings in Wilderswil and it really has that Swiss charm!
Our room was on the ground floor which meant we had a lovely open balcony to step out onto and admire the gorgeous gardens. The owner Carl ( who is funnily enough a South African ) loves landscaping so when he took over the hotel it was his mission to create a beautiful outside area. I really think it adds a lot to the charm of the place.
It was absolutely fantastic to just step out of our room and almost into the nearby jacuzzi as well! A glass of champagne, fairy lights and a fluffy beanie was all I needed to have a perfect afternoon soaking in the bubbles!
While we were staying at the Alpenrose hotel and gardens we did a day trip up Junfraujoch. We could actually see from outside our room as soon as the skies cleared. I highly recommend going up to the highest train station in Europe and then heading down for some beer and schnitzel at the Husi Beer House in Interlaken!
We also visited the the magical village of Lauterbrunnen and walked along the beautiful canals in Interlaken. I could easily see myself staying at the Alpenrose for a week exploring all the nearby areas.
