Hotel Waldhaus Sils

    Hotel Waldhaus Sils
 in Sils Maria


The Waldhaus first opened its doors to guests in 1908 under the direction of Josef Giger and his wife Amalie. For many years, the two had managed hotels abroad in Russia, Italy, Bad Ragaz, and then in St. Moritz. After plenty of time spent managing hotels, the Gigers now owned their dream hotel.

Their daughter Helen and her husband Oskar Kienberger took control of the property after her parents retired and steered the hotel swimmingly through some rough patches. Helen and Oskar's son Rolf assumed responsibility and carried the family business through until 1977 when Maria and Felix Dietrich-Kienberger took up the mantle for 33 years, first with Maria's parents and then with Maria's brother Urs Kienberger in 1989.

Now in the hands of the fifth generation, the hotel is currently managed by brothers Claudio and Patrick Dietrich. Claudio ensures the excellence of the hotel's food and drink while Patrick oversees the hotel's accommodations. Urs Kienberger, the Dietrich's uncle, continues in his position as CIO, or Chief Intellectual Officer. With no outside managers or shareholders, the Hotel Waldhaus Sils is truly a family affair.

Upwards of 3 million Swiss francs are spent each year to ensure the best experience and environment for the hotel's guests. The hotel's size, despite these marvelous improvements, has remained, deliberately, approximately the same as when it first opened. Otherwise, the brothers believe, they would not be able to care and cater to guests the same way their ancestors did.

Their exceptional care has been rewarded with accolades, such as being named the Swiss “Historic Hotel of the Year” in 2005 by ICOMOS Switzerland, the International Council on Monuments and Sites.

Sporting an impressive list of former guests, such as David Bowie and Neville Chamberlain, the Hotel Waldhaus Sils boasts an exceptionally dedicated staff as well as a fascinating family history.

Hotel Waldhaus Sils, a member of Historic Hotels Worldwide since 2014, dates back to 1908.
