Our World Tuesday

After a short break so I could post some local activities, I am taking us back to another wonderful day in Switzerland.  On this day we were traveling to the home of the youngest brother.  We stopped for lunch at an old hotel ...Hotel Rosenlaui.  This hotel had been built originally in the 1850's by the English entrepreneurs who were coming to Switzerland in droves during that period.  It has been remodeled numerous times, and is still well preserved and gorgeous.

Walking to the Hotel we crossed over a bridge that went over this beautiful stream.  There are streams and waterfalls everywhere in Switzerland ... so cool!

They were serving lunch out on the patio ... and you know we weren't going to skip lunch:)

But first we had to go visit the little girls room which took us inside the hotel ...

The main floor was open to the public and they had rooms for special occasions which were not in use on this day.

This was a really cool chandelier in the reading room ... the sign on the door behind it led us to our destination.

When we came out we spotted a staircase that was marked for residents only ... i.e.
 Keep Out!

Not ... it just made it more of a temptation, so up we went!

Clearly the residents were treated well ... something to think about if you are ever traveling in the area.

But it was time to go out to enjoy our lunch :)

What a delicious lunch    and

of course, dessert ...

From our table we had another view of the little stream ...

And, this is my friend standing by the sign that points to our next adventure ... more on that another time.
Happy OWT Everyone!


  1. beautiful views - inside and out. love all the wood on the interior!

  2. Somehow the word beautiful seems so inadequate. Everything inside looks so warm and inviting.

  3. wonderful scenery and it was certainly worth going to the little girls room to see all the inside of that hotel.

  4. What a gorgeous place!! Oh I just love love love that wooden figure that your friend is standing beside. It is simply precious!! And that ice cream looks ever so delicious! The chandeliers are so beautiful. I watched a program a few days ago about some of these beautiful chandeliers. They are so romantic.

    Now I'm off to read your next post. You have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna B.
