Current Situation

How we arrange your stay, with all available information as of 24th February 2021.

Dear guests - Corona has changed the world and Switzerland. And yet we would like to spoil you to the best of our ability. In this respect, we are facing challenges, because the many conditions and restrictions are sometimes not yet clear and are constantly changing. Please find on this page our updated details about your stay at the Lenkerhof. We look forward to seeing you!

Some of our services and information are only accessible via QR code (e.g. menus & guest information), we therefore recommend - if not already available - to install a QR reader on your mobile phone beforehand via the respective app store.
