Relaxation and pleasure are at top priority at the Alpina Mountain Resort & Spa hotel. The hotel is located in Tschiertschen, which is a small village close to the oldest city in Switzerland, Chur. Tschiertschen lies 1350m above the sea level. Marlies and Michael Gehring attach great importance to the wellbeing of their guests. All 27 rooms are luxurious and comfortably furnished. The attention to detail and the passion for quality cannot only be seen in the rooms, but also at the spa area and the panorama restaurant.
How to get to Alpina Mountain Resort & Spa
If you want to undergo this unique experience, you can either fly to Zurich and take the train to Chur, take the train (if you are in Europe), or drive by car. I flew to Zurich with Eurowings and took the train from the airport to Chur. The train ride was wonderful! It takes about one hour and a half from the airport and you will come across beautiful lakes such, as the lake Zurich. The breath-taking scenery makes time fly. Check the Swiss train ticket website early to pay only the half the price (around 20CHF). The price for a one-way flight ticket varies between 30€ – 100€. It depends when you fly, and how far in advance you book your ticket. The spacious and comfortable hotel shuttle will pick you up at the train station in Chur.
Enter the world of pleasure and delight
At my first evening, Oy spoiled me with an one hour Thai massage. Afterwrads, I enjoyed the delicious three-course meal. I could not resist the apple strudel with ice. Yummy!!! Feel free to order a la carte if you would like to have something different, or just a salad instead of the three-course menu. Besides the delicious temptation, you have a gorgeous panoramic view! Try to be at your table for the sunrise or sunset! It doesn’t matter at what time you go to the restaurant, bar, or any other place at the hotel, the employees are extremely friendly and courteous.
The breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of sweet, healthy and savoury specialities.
Pure relaxation in your room
After a long day in the mountains, skiing, or just in the spa, savour your generous room and the balcony with the enormous panoramic view!
You won’t want to miss anything! Celebrate the mini bar, as it is for free. Personally, I loved the provided body lotion and the shampoo! It is produced from natural products. The cold alpine air will let you have the best sleep! So don’t forget to open your window during the night.
Allow your body and mind to become one
Ride a bike down along the mountain paths, go mountain-hiking, play tennis or go skiing at Alpina Mountain Resort & Spa in Tschiertschen. Around the hotel are loads of trails, and during winter time, you are able to ski right up in front of the hotel or the hotel bar. I drove an e-mountain bike for the first time in my life. Unbelievable! I had so much fun and I could drive until the top of the mountain within one hour. The hotel has six of them, and they can also be driven during the winter time. Don’t forget to take a scarf, thick socks and gloves; it will be cold the way down.
After my short trip, I was glad that I could use the spacious spa and wellness area. First, I went into the bio sauna for 15 minutes, then I used the Finnish sauna, and afterwards, I chilled in the whirlpool with the sensational landscape.
