“Time travel” presents five journeys to 47 historic hotels in Switzerland at various times of the year.
Authors Ursula Bauer and Jürg Frischknecht take their inspiration from the leisurely and deliberate pace of travelers of the past. They point out gems and unexpected options along the way, quote contem-porary anecdotes and reports that illustrate how outlandish and hazardous traveling in Switzerland could be in days gone by. Andrea Badrutt reveals the scenic splendors of the hotels’ settings in his stunning photographs and lures readers into the Belle Époque of traveling in style with his pictures of hotel interiors. Roland Flückiger-Seiler provides knowledgeable vignettes on the history of each hotel.
