Though it's a ski resort, Leukerbad is just as famous for its
thermal baths. Standing in the center of town, one has great
views of nearby mountain peaks. Don't know why this giant clown greets visitors arriving into
Leukerbad. The two-lane switchback road leading up the mountain
to Leukerbad can be a little spooky for those who have a problem
with roads running along deep drops. The town is compact,
well-kept and cozy. Though only visited for the day, it would
be a great place to spend the weekend. Walked through Les Source
des Alpes (Leukerbad's only five-star rated hotel property).
Result? Unfortunately its dated 1970's decor screams to be remodeled.
Would definitely stay at the more modern four-star Lindner Hotel
with its huge thermal bath complex. I've been finding that the
vast majority of hotels in the ski resorts visited in Switzerland
cater to smokers and DO NOT have non-smoking rooms. I could immediately
tell the Lindner was different because of the "no smoking"
signs spread around the lobby.
Is this place hopping or is it dead in the summer?
with tourists but, not too many.
Is there a lake and/or golf course in town?
car the only option?
from the valley floor blow.
Does the place feel claustrophobic?
The mountains rise up abruptly. It could be a problem.
Lots of choices
for acccomodations (hotels/ chalets) and do I have recommendations?
star hotels on down.
Could I spend a whole summer here or would I get bored?
A week would be the max.
