Journey to the hotel Alpenblick in Höchenschwand
Of course, there is a reason for our house being called „Alpenblick“. Here, in the county of Baden-Württemberg at an altitude of around 1015m, a magnificent view onto the Alps is revealed – provided, of course, that the sky is clear.
The mountain air, which is proven to be good for health and the 1848 hours of sun on average – the most in the whole of Germany- provide Höchenschwand with the perfect conditions for a healthy, active spa holiday:
The open location on a slightly south inclined plateau, painted with luscious meadows and woods is perfectly suitable for Nordic walking and cross-country skiing. The nearby lake Schluchsee attracts guests with its variety of watersports and in the border triangle Germany-France-Switzerland you will find culture in its purest form.
By the way: Höchenschwand is the therapeutic climate resort with the highest altitude and is lovingly called the “village beneath the sky” by visitors and residents. Idyllic through and through.
