"Passion, Heart & Joy!"
Our guests rate us
Welcome to the Romantik Hotel Hornberg! We are delighted to welcome you to Saanenmöser near Gstaad, where we have been in the third generation of our family since 1936, and where our hospitality and passion for the Swiss hotel industry are alive and well. With the authentic chalet building style and the proverbial tranquillity in the midst of nature, we would like to offer you true relaxation.
The Romantik Hotel Hornberg is now being run by the third generation. Where once Werner and Helene von Siebenthal-Hauswirth opened a house with 24 beds, the foundation stone was laid for today's hotel business. The idea of creating a house of encounter with open doors has been preserved by the host family to this day. In 2003, Brigitte von Siebenthal and her partner Christian Hoefliger took over the house. Today, as a married couple, together with their two sons, they continue to run it with passion and commitment in the spirit of their ancestors.
In addition to the cosy furnishings, the rooms are particularly impressive due to the view of the Gstaad mountains.

And without a doubt - the highlight is our fondue hut on the terrace from 1726.
Fresh & regional
...is the focus of the Romantik Hotel Hornberg when it comes to food and drinks! Here, even the mineral water becomes a local pleasure experience. Fresh from its own spring right outside the door in the beautiful Saanenland, the hotel offers its guests not only still water but also sparkling water from the hotel's own sparkling water system. The water is bottled fresh on site in stylish glass bottles with matching labels and thus does not have to be transported any further. This is how sustainable and local water consumption can be!
Around the hotel
For your well-being, the sauna area with large bio-sauna (50°C), rustic Finnish sauna (85°C), steam bath and outdoor Kneipp fountain is at your disposal. As is, of course, the indoor pool with access to the garden and a view of the mountains. In summer, the organic swimming pond in the hotel garden offers a fantastic experience. 100% organic, it provides a unique swimming experience in nature.
The countless hiking trails around the Romantik Hotel Hornberg inspire with their exclusively "chalet" style of construction, breathtaking views, lush green meadows, shady forests, clear mountain lakes, almost magical waterfalls and the pure mountain air. During the summer months, the many mountain railways are open and the alpine cheese dairies invite you to taste their products. In the widely ramified and, thanks to the mountain railways, easily accessible Gstaad hiking network everyone will find the right tour.
Around the Romantik Hotel Hornberg invite more than 500 kilometre tours to a varied experience for beginners and pleasure-oriented e-bikers as well as for trained mountain bikers or racing cyclists. Bicycles, children's bikes and chilli scooters are available to guests at Romantik Hotel Hornberg free of charge. In addition, you can rent mountain e-bikes on site to climb the Sannenmös mountain world by bike.
The Romantik Hotel Hornberg is the ideal starting point for your winter sports activities: skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, winter hiking, snowshoeing and even more. The largest connected skiing area of Gstaad reaches up to 150m from our front door. You can even be active on the glacier on the boards of your choice. Beginners will enjoy the nearby ski school while the mountain slopes in front of the house and the free Hornberg toboggan ensure the best tobogganing fun for young and old.
The Golfplatz Gstaad-Saanenland in the middle of the mountain landscape of the Bernese Oberland, at 1400 metres above sea level, is considered one of the most beautiful golf courses in the Alps. You can reach another 6 golf courses in 60 to 90 minutes by car.
During two days, Arthur Brand and Christian Würsten take you out into the wild in the early morning hours. The retired hunter and the Lauener original will explain the connections between flora, fauna and nature to you on the excursion. With a bit of luck, you will catch a glimpse of local wildlife such as deer, chamois, hares and foxes, and maybe it will even be enough to watch a black grouse during its impressive courtship dance through the binoculars.
