Swiss Quirkiness

It’s fun to write about the fairy tale stuff that makes Switzerland so cute and atmospheric. It’s the quirky stuff, however, that really makes us smile.

Take Gucci’s Iglu Snow Bar, for example.

Gucci’s occupies prime real estate abutting intersecting trails just above the tiny hamlet of Ardez. On a sunny day, the lounge chairs offer quality mountain viewing. (and tanning)

Imagine that you’re strolling along, enjoying your winter hike through the mountains of Switzerland, when hot food and delicious drink suddenly appear out of nowhere.

The Alps are peppered with original establishments like this one, each with their own personality and style. Here’s a shot of the igloo. A bottle of wine on the table. Hot, local fare on the plate. We love it.
