Bubble Suite Gysenegg 2 Braunwald

Togetherness and a unique panorama

Whether for adventurers or romantics, the bubble suite in the Swiss mountains offers a unique overnight experience in enchanting surroundings. The car-free mountain village of Braunwald offers a distinctive nature and landscape that can be explored in a variety of ways. Whether hiking, biking, climbing or just enjoying yourself - treat yourself to a break high above everyday life and let your soul unwind and your mind dream in the fresh mountain air. A fire bowl with seating in front of the glass igloo invites you to linger after an eventful day.

The self-sufficient glass igloo is located just above Braunwald and can be reached in a 25-minute walk from the mountain station of the Braunwaldbahn.

For an extra touch of romance, there is the option of being driven from the mountain station to the glass igloo in Switzerland's first electric horse-drawn carriage. On the journey, you can enjoy a regional aperitif if you wish - a very special culinary experience!
