We emphasize a sustainable approach to nature

As the hosts of Hotel Schweizerhof, we love being in the beautiful nature that surrounds us, whether we’re enjoying the summer sunshine with a refreshing dip in Lake Heidsee or a snowshoe hike through the wintry snow-covered forest. For us, nature is much more than just an adventure playground or a pretty backdrop – it is the very heart of our world. From a tourism perspective, it is the essential foundation of our business; from a human point of view, it is a crucial source of strength. This is why we, as a whole team, are passionate about and committed to protecting resources and interacting with nature in a respectful and sustainable way.

We care

The climate crisis has already begun, and we need to take responsibility for our actions – with targeted measures in the three areas of sustainability: social, ecological and economic. As the sustainability manager, I look forward to tackling this important challenge together with the Schweizerhof team.

Naomi Koepfli, Sustainability Officer

Social responsibility

The hotel's own coach

Franziska, our “good soul”, is available to provide advice and support to our employees one day a week. Her first priority is our trainees, but she will always lend an ear to everyone else.

Trainee sustainability week

Once a year, we hold a sustainability week for our trainees. We visit partners and role models in the area of sustainability. For us, it is crucial that our trainees understand and support our efforts in sustainability from the outset.

Children's club for employees' children

As with our younger hotel guests, our employees’ children can also take advantage of free childcare with the “Andalina” children’s club. This way, parents can work in peace while knowing that their children are close by.

Language courses for employees

Our employees can voluntarily take two classes a week to improve their German skills.

Local involvement

Clean environment

Do you love the beauty of our natural environment? Please help to protect it and collect your waste in the clean bag you took with you. You will receive a small gift at reception as a thank-you for helping to keep our region clean.

Cultural commitment

We are committed to culture in the region, and passionate about holding regular, exciting cultural experiences. As President of the “Kultur am Pass” association, Claudia Züllig is passionate about strengthening our regional culture.

Regional partners & suppliers

When sourcing food and other products, we rely on regional expertise and short transport routes. We want to know who produces our food, and place value on a personal connection and discourse with our producers.

Sustainable energy concept

Heat recovery in the hammam

Our Alpenchic rooms, which are located in the same building as our BergSpa, are partially heated by waste heat from the hammam. This way the heat can be used twice, enabling us to save energy.

Investments in infrastructure

The main building of Hotel Schweizerhof dates back to the early years of the previous century (1904). Renovations always offer an opportunity to optimise energy consumption.

The holiday begins on the way here

The lakes, mountains, rivers, villages and towns are all best enjoyed from the comfort of a train or PostBus service to and from Lenzerheide. Here are five tips for an even smoother journey to us by public transport:

1. Simpler connections

Swiss public transport is world-renowned for its punctuality. It’s easy to find timetable information in the SBB app or in the timetable below.

2. Attractive luggage transportation offers to Lenzerheide

Take a comfortable and environmentally-friendly ride on public transport to reach us, and have your luggage sent separately. SBB offers various options for transporting your luggage and sports equipment.

3. Savings offers

With Saver Day Passes, you can take advantage of cheaper public transport fares. You can save up to 70% if you book up to six months in advance.

4. Travelling with children

Here you will find tips and information about travelcards, tickets, reservations, family coaches and much more to help you enjoy a more relaxed journey with your children.

5. Our thanks to you!

For us, climate protection and preserving fauna and flora is vitally important. Every day, we do everything in our power to make our actions more sustainable. As a thank-you for taking public transport and therefore the more environmentally-friendly option, you will receive a small gift from us when you arrive.

Sustainability news

Hotel Schweizerhof works in harmony with nature. A responsible and respectful approach is at the heart of our actions and decisions. We assume ecological responsibility by investing in sustainable processes, products and measures. We maintain social responsibility towards our employees and create economic added value through our conscious actions.

In the process, we learn something new every day and are constantly inspired by the good examples and ideas of our employees and partners.


In the area of tourism in particular, we make our living from the beauty of nature, but our actions also have a huge impact on the environment. As such, it is important to us that we handle resources respectfully to ensure we continue to develop in a sustainable way. Sustainability is the key factor here. And our whole team is committed to it.

Our partners

We rely on the support of other hotel businesses and various partners in the field of sustainability when implementing our sustainability efforts. Collaborative, regular discourse creates synergies that help us to make a difference together in the area of sustainability in the tourism sector.


Myclimate is a partner in the “Cause We Care” project. At the Schweizerhof, every guest makes a small contribution each night in the form of a “franc for the climate”. As a hotel, we double this amount and use half of it for a sustainable project abroad and half for one of our own sustainability projects in the hotel.


Swisstainable is a sustainability programme initiated by Switzerland Tourism for committed and interested parties. Businesses that are committed to sustainability are awarded the Swisstainable label. We are proud to have Engaged Level 2.

Responsible Hotels of Switzerland

The Responsible Hotels of Switzerland group unites the leading businesses in the areas of ecological and social sustainability in the Swiss hospitality industry. Through discussions at numerous events and network meetings, we use synergies to make common progress on sustainability matters.

United Against Waste

United Against Waste aims to halve food waste along the entire out-of-home consumption chain. To prevent food waste, we refrain from offering meat and cheese platters at the breakfast buffet. Our guests order precisely what they want from their table. In this way, we can avoid having to dispose of leftover food on the platters (a requirement of the Foodstuffs Act).

Do you have any questions?

Naomi Koepfli, our sustainability manager, would love to hear from you!
