The people behind it

Charlotte and Lukas Kalbermatten-Ritler are currently in charge of Silencehotel Edelweiss. Taking over the reins in January 1998, the hotel is now into its third generation. Together with their children Jonas and Sophie, they enjoy meeting guests from around the world.

Brigitte Lehner-Hasler and Marie-Madlen Rieder-Hasler continue their family tradition at the helm of Hotel Breithorn. They love hosting visitors in the home they grew up in where every nook and cranny reminds them of their childhood.

Esther Bellwald and Laurent Hubert returned to their roots in 2011 and now manage Hotel Nest- und Bietschhorn as the second generation to do so. Their sons Noé and Luc now also have the opportunity to grow up in this home that is so steeped in tradition. 

These six men and women - the Lötschental Group - are not only dedicated hosts but they are also the imaginative driving force behind the hotel partnership. They are determined to lead their individual family-run businesses to a successful future while using the hotel collective to boost the whole Lötschental valley as a tourist destination. They aim to firmly pinpoint the Lötschental valley on the Swiss map, raising its profile both at home and abroad.
