Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Lindenhof by Crossworld AG

Lindenhofweg 15, Brienz, Bern, 3855, Switzerland

Families often settle in for a week or two at this hotel high above the lakefront, their evenings spent by the immense stone fireplace, in the panoramic winter garden, or on the spectacular terrace. The grounds of this 1910 lodge are beautifully manicured, the atmosphere both familial and formal. Guest rooms are quirkily and individually decorated by themes—cheese, forest, flower meadow, and straw hut, to name a few. Children love these hideaways, and families with small ones appreciate that they can dine together by the fire, apart from other guests. Those with lots of luggage will want to call ahead to be picked up from the train station.
