New Romantik member in the Gruyère region

The Romantik Hotel Le Vignier brings the Swiss canton Freiburg back on the map of Romantik Hotels & Restaurants. Besides a wonderful view of the Lac de Gruyère and the Freiburg Alpine foothills the former restaurant for day-trippers offers modern, newly renovated guest rooms.

Chocolate and cheese are traditionally the culinary export hits of Switzerland. In addition to the Romantik Hotel Bären in the Emmental valley and the Romantik Hotel Säntis in Appenzell the Romantik Hotel Le Vignier in the Gruyère region is now the third member of Romantik Hotels & Restaurants to invite its guests to one of the famous cheese regions of Switzerland. The view, which you might enjoy from the restaurant terrace and some of the guest rooms is picturesque: The Lac de Gruyère and the Freiburg Alpine foothills form the scenic panorama. At first, the Romantik Hotel Le Vignier, built in 1960, made its name as a restaurant for day-trippers, before changing into a hotel with modern guest rooms and a restaurant awarded with 14 Gault Millau points. And of course one may find the famous Gruyère cheese on the menu…

Owner Stéphane Schlaeppy knows the Romantik guests from the Romantik Hotel Beau Rivage in Weggis: “Romantik guests are connoisseurs attaching great importance to quality and authenticity, and at the same time they are explorers who want to see beyond the obvious surface of a region. These are exactly the guests whom I would like to introduce to the charm of the Gruyère region.”

For Thomas Edelkamp, member of the board of directors of Romantik Hotels & Restaurants, the new Romantik Hotel Le Vignier is a great addition to the offer of the cooperation in French-speaking Switzerland so far. “This is a hotel which is already firmly rooted on the culinary map and now wants to expand the hotel offer. I am looking forward to support Stéphane Schlaeppy in his efforts.”
