This period hotel is a block from the train station and the historic Chapel Bridge. In a handy position for rail travelers, the Alpina Hotel has the charm of an older building plus the comfort of up-to-date rooms and the shared facilities of its 3-star sister hotel next door. Carpeted guest rooms are cozy and feature large, light-bearing windows and original balconies from which the street below can be spied. Families will appreciate the relaxed ambience of the Alpina, while guests with a penchant for revelry will find several lively bars within a short walk of the hotel. For sightseeing, it's a five-minute walk to the Chapel Bridge and a further five minutes to the old town, the Hofkirche and the Lion Monument.
