Berggasthaus Aescher Hotel Built Into Swiss Alps

We’ve found the perfect place to take your Swiss Miss: the Berggasthaus Aescher. OK, so she won’t coo with anticipation when she hears you butcher that name, but when you tell her the two of you will be spending the weekend in a 170-year-old guest house built into a cliff in the Swiss Alps, you’ll have a handful of putty to play with.

Situated just below the Ebenalp Cliff, the northernmost summit of the Appenzell Alps, this rustic retreat is all about the unbelievable view from the cliffside terraces. There’s no Wi-Fi or TV, but those are features your girl will probably love (no TV means no Xbox, right?). There are three rooms which come with a half dozen or so mattresses for your sleeping bag to rest on. There are no true showers, and the water comes from the mountain. This is ‘getting away’ in its most sincere form. Berggasthaus Aescher – and unlimited hand putty — is only a two-hour ride from Zurich.
