Hotel Victoria Jungfrau Interlaken BE, Spa redevelopment

A historic grand hotel focuses firmly on the future

The Hotel Victoria Jungfrau in Interlaken has a history spanning almost 150 years. Once a modest boarding house, it is now one of Europe›s most important historic luxury and grand hotels – set in scenic surroundings that can be described as unique, not least because of the view of the Jungfrau massif.

As a first step, the spa and wellness area has now been redeveloped – a task necessitated by a fire in the existing sauna in autumn 2010. The redevelopment was achieved in a very short time and offered a chance to adapt the important guest facility to current needs and extend it with a number of hot and cold areas. Particular attention was paid to the selection of natural and dignified materials. Together with the soothing colour scheme, these help to create a sense of pleasurable relaxation.
