We love the newly-renovated Hotel Bellevue Terminus because it's historic yet modern, and the staff go out of their way to make us feel at home (and of course follow strict corona protocols). The hotel is a short walk from the station, but also offers free parking. Breakfast is served in a relaxed setting, or on the terrace if the weather is nice. Twin rooms available upon request, and all rooms are ensuite.
Each morning, Diccon Bewes will lead two seminars designed to help you understand this unique country better. By the end of the weekend you'll have dived into Switzerland's history and political system, and had a taster of Swiss food and culture. And of course the large seminar rooms are set up with social-distancing guidelines in mind.
The curated program continues each afternoon with activities that give you a hands-on immersion in Swiss culture. Depending on the weather, these might include a behind-the-scenes tour of the Brunni cable car, a visit to Engelberg's historic monastery, and a lesson in yodelling or the alphorn from a professional teacher. Prefer a quiet afternoon? You're always welcome to go for a walk in the beautiful countryside or relax in the hotel.
Breakfast and our coffee breaks are served in the beautiful dining room of the Bellevue. For the other meals we'll visit some of Engelberg's best restaurants where you'll be able to choose from a range of options, including vegetarian or vegan. We can also accommodate participants with allergies if we know in advance.
Whether you're coming on the retreat to recharge, or want to spend time with friends, or want to meet others who have recently moved to Switzerland, our retreats offer the time and space to relax, to chat, to play and to have fun. No part of our program is mandatory. Come immerse with us – you deserve it.
