Hotel and Restaurant Edelweiss

Blatten (Lötschental)

Hotel Edelweiss – The Legendary Hotel.

Set in a stunning location 1540 metres above sea level in the village of Blatten, your attentive hosts await you with a place for relaxation and laughter all year round – all with a beautiful view of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our 23 rooms and junior suites were renovated in 2016 with great attention to detail. As a hiking hotel (hotelleriesuisse), we offer you modern facilities and all the amenities you would expect from a 3-star holiday hotel. Culinary highlights and a varied guest programme await you.

The Hotel Edelweiss is located on the eastern edge of the village of Blatten, at the confluence of two mountain streams. Blatten is the highest village in the Lötschental. It is the only Valais side valley that runs from east to west and is therefore very sunny.

Only with the opening of the Lötschberg tunnel in 1913 and the construction of the road in the 1950s the Lötschental became easily accessible. Thanks to this former seclusion of the valley, Blatten has retained a unique charm with its sun-blackened wooden houses, typical Valais warehouses and unspoilt nature. Experience the Lötschental traditions and customs up close.

Junior Suite

30 m2
Our two new junior suites with north-west-facing balconies are truly exquisite spaces. Thanks to the comfy sofa bed, up to four people can stay in our junior suites.

It’s safe to say we’ve gone the extra mile with the features in both of the rooms: They are equipped with both bath and shower facilities, whilst the balconies offer a beautiful view of the village and get the sun in the evening until sunset.

Economy room

19 m2
These rooms may be smaller than the comfort rooms but that doesn’t mean they’re any less comfortable. The main differences are that these rooms feature one double bed (160 cm).

There is no balcony. These rooms are a popular choice for single occupancy. The economy rooms can also be booked in combination with a double comfort room with an adjoining door to make things nice and convenient.

Economy-Single room

These rooms boast the same level of comfort and style as all of our other hotel rooms. They too have a shower, toilet, TV, radio, safe and free Wi-Fi.

Although there is less space, the effective features ensure that you feel right at home. You should be aware that you won’t have access to a balcony and you’ll only have a restricted view of the beautiful mountains through the windows.
Having said that, these rooms prove particularly popular with guests on a tighter budget and they are ideal if you’re travelling with teenagers, if you fancy an extra room as a couple or if you’re a tour or mountain guide.
The rates here vary as the three rooms are all a bit different.

Our Restaurants

Hotel and Restaurant Edelweiss, Blatten (Lötschental)

There is always something going on in the cosy village restaurant – hotel guests, locals and day trippers meet here.

The sunny viewing terrace offers space for 80 guests and is highly appreciated by hotel guests and passers-by alike. The terrace can be reached from the village road, although it is located on the fifth floor of the house and you can enjoy a view from the distance. In good weather you can also enjoy breakfast and dinner on the panoramic terrace from June to September.

We offer our half-board guests a 4-course selection menu. Speciality evenings on Tuesday and Thursday as well as a fine fish dish on Friday provide additional variety. In the high season we offer a buffet with various Valais specialities on Thursdays and in summer we grill for you on the panoramic terrace. There is also a selection on the menu for our vegetarian and vegan guests. We are also happy to cater to your special wishes regarding allergies or diets. Half board is charged at CHF 35.-.

Combine work with an authentic experience.
At the Hotel Edelweiss, you have the chance to combine your work with a cultural event without having to go to any trouble at all. Pair our modern seminar services with authentic experiences based on the unique wealth of culture and tradition the Lötschental valley has to offer.


Your hosts
Hotel owner Lukas Kalbermatten has been involved in local politics for more than a decade. He offers his guests an insight into the Lötschental valley and all its unique features and rough edges every single day.


Lötschental valley
Located between the Pennine and Bernese Alps, the Lötschental valley was isolated for centuries – especially during the winter months. This is how languages, customs and traditions have been maintained here that were lost elsewhere in the Alpine range. Since the construction of the Lötschberg railway and the Goppenstein train station, the Lötschental valley has come to be a central place to live and a top holiday destination. You can get to Blatten from Visp in 30 minutes, from Sion in 50 minutes and from Bern in 90 minutes. There are fantastic train connections between 6 a.m. and 1 a.m. the following morning. That’s another compelling reason to retreat to this nearby valley to work together as a team and expose yourself to a varied cultural landscape while you’re here.



Seminar room

Seminar room wth day light for up to 12 people, including a projector, a large pinboard and whiteboard, a fixed line internet connection and Wi-Fi

Combine your seminar with some cultural exploration, a group event or a culinary experience. Your host Lukas Kalbermatten personally oversees all events on offer as your guide, with some requiring experts to come along too.

If you do end up with some extra time for relaxation, we recommend heading to our wellness area, which is designed in the style of an old Tellin lodge.
