"Between dream and reality"
In the historic village centre of Appenzell, on the famous Landsgemeindeplatz, lies the well-known four-star Hotel Säntis. The traditional house welcomes you with a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains and a magnificent façade. As a guest, you can expect Swiss cordiality, an unforgettable stay in first-class and lovingly designed rooms as well as gastronomic delicacies.
Host Stefan Heeb grew up in the Hotel Säntis. Even as a child, it was clear to him that one day he would take over his family's business. On the 1st of January 1995, the time had finally come. Today, together with his wife Catriona, he runs the house with a lot of passion and heart and soul. The Heeb family attaches particular importance to the quality of the cuisine. This runs in the family, because since the hotel has been in Heeb family ownership, the cuisine has enjoyed an excellent reputation. Of course, the service also matches the high standard of the cuisine.
