Hotel und Restaurant Edelweiss in Blatten

The legendary hotel – for those seeking tranquility and for active guests


Hotel and Restaurant Edelweiss is an ideal starting point for a vacation as well as a short get-away in the Lötschental. Located on the outskirts of Blatten, the furthest village of the Lötschental, it is perfect for guests seeking tranquility as well as active vacationers. Completely renovated in 2016, the hotel offers the best 3-star comfort. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming; the interior design reflects the traditional alpine-chic. All 23 rooms have been furnished with warm materials and great attention to detail. Most rooms feature a balcony offering beautiful views of the Lötschental mountains. The wellness area with sauna/sanarium, foot baths, relaxation room and loungers in the outdoor area invites to relax after an active day of hiking or skiing. The cozy village restaurant with its family atmosphere is a popular meeting place in the Lötschental. In the dining room and on the large panoramic terrace with views to the “Lötschenlücke”, guests enjoy alpine cuisine made of regional, seasonal products.


Due to its long isolation, the Lötschental managed to preserve its beautiful nature as well as local customs and traditions. Hotel Edelweiss is one of the places to experience and fully enjoy those traditions. During the village tour, guided by the host of Hotel Edelweiss, one will gain an even deeper insight of the wildly romantic, mystic valley.


The Lötschental with its idyllic villages and warm-hearted people is worth a stay at any time, both in summer and in winter.

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.

Combine work with an authentic experience.
At the Hotel und Restaurant 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.
