Traditional with a modern twist

Hotel du Commerce – keeping up with the times

The hotel was built in 1953 and founded by Werner Weibel. We have been dedicated to the hospitality and well-being of our valued guests for almost 70 years. But what would be tradition without modernisation? Over the past 20 years, we have invested a lot of time and effort renovating and further developing our hotel so that we can offer you an unforgettable and pleasant stay in our modern and comfortable hotel.

After managing the fortunes of the Hotel Du Commerce for 50 years, in 2003, founder Werner Weibel decided it was time to hand over the keys to a new generation. Since then, Werner’s great-niece Raffaella Pedrazzetti-Bucher and her husband Patrik Bucher have continued the family tradition with passion and commitment, and it continues to grow today!


Sustainability in our hotel

99% of our energy consumption is certified CO₂-neutral!
50% of the electricity requirement is covered by hydroelectric power and 49% of the heating by district heating. The two energy sources are responsible for 0 kg of CO2-/kWh. This means we only cover 1% of our total energy consumption from fossil fuels. For this purpose, we purchase bio natural gas, which means that we consume just 75g CO2/kWh for each overnight stay.

Here you will find our IWB certification (certificate no. 10028018) (PDF certificate).

Our healthy, organic and locally-sourced breakfast is the best way to start your day. Every day from 6:30am to 10:00am, we offer you international and local dishes from the region, which are of the best possible quality!
