In the very center of the village, steps from the railway station, is the four-star Silberhorn. In comfort, room space and quality, it ranks just behind the Regina. On the rather ho-hum ground floor entry is the hotel's public restaurant and bakery. Things improve considerably on the first floor, however, where you'll find the reception and a lobby whose centerpiece is a piece of furniture that ratchets up the elegance quotient of almost any room, a grand piano. The best place to be at the Silberhorn, however, is on its spacious terrace where every table has a ringside seat to one of the world's great views.

The hotel's comfortable guestrooms are all similarly decorated and furnished. Many of them have fold-down beds which makes for increased daytime living space. Number 429 is a large double with superior views of the great peaks and a separate sitting area with sofa and two comfortable chairs. Number 328 is a two-room studio with kitchenette, a separate bedroom, fold-down double bed in the living area. It would be ideal for a family or two couples. As with most hotels that have only refurbished a portion of its guestrooms, the Silberhorn's newer rooms are worth the extra money. Hans-Jakob Beldi, the Silberhorn's affable manager, regularly leads guests on half-day walks. The hotel can pack you a lunch.
