Hotel Restaurant Walliser Sonne enjoys a quiet location at the forest’s edge in the village of Gluringen, near the Alpine passes of Fürka, Grimsel and Nufenen. Run by a Dutch family, it offers panoramic views from every room, free WiFi and free parking.
In summer, the Goms area is a great base for hiking, biking and motorbike trips. A 100-km network of cross-country ski runs and hiking paths is only 500 metres away, with free transfers available on request. Ski waxing and storage are available on site.
All rooms feature bright wooden furniture, satellite TV and a bathroom with hairdryer. Located away from the main street, guests can enjoy a stay in a quiet countryside environment.
Right next to the Hotel Walliser Sonne, there is ski school and a gentle slope for beginners and children. The ski areas of Fiesch-Riederalp-Bettmeralp and Bellwald, and the famous Aletsch Glacier, are easily reachable by public transport.
During summer, guests can enjoy the buffet breakfast in the hall or on the garden terrace. In winter, guests can relax in front of the open fireplace. On request, dinner with daily menus of 2 or 3 courses is provided in the evening.
On request, guests can be picked up from Gluringen Train Station, 500 metres away. The hotel’s owner speaks German, English and Dutch.
