Seven nights hotel lodging in the Hotel Derby in Grindelwald
The Hotel Derby are steeped in history. The “Hotel de la Gare” was built here by the legendary Captain Gsteiger at the end of the 19thcentury. The same underlying principle applied then as it does now: we want to offer our guests a holiday that will long remain with them as a happy memory. Just travelling to the Derby is a pleasure in itself. The journey by rail could hardly be easier. We are passionate about hospitality and welcome you with a very special combination of attention to details and unobtrusive service.
Lean back and be our guest and engage on an experience for all senses. Relax on our rooftop terrace or in one of our stylish rooms, discover the culinary art of the traditional Swiss cuisine, try one of the creations of our experienced kitchen team and enjoy one of the excellent wines.
