Update 9th of September 2021

Certificates are required from Monday

The Federal Council has decided to extend the COVID certificate requirement as of September 13th. Hotels are also partially affected.

When will the certificate requirement be extended?
As of Monday, September 13, 2021.

Until when does the extension of the certificate requirement apply?
The expansion is initially limited to January 24, 2022.

From what age does a certificate have to be presented?
From 16 years of age.

To which areas relevant to hotels is the expansion being carried out?

  • Indoor restaurants, bars and clubs.
  • Indoor events (private events such as weddings, seminars, cultural events such as concerts, theater, sporting events).
  • Sports indoor areas such as wellness and fitness areas, indoor pools, thermal baths, etc.

How are hotels affected?
Apart from the areas mentioned in the previous question, the mere overnight stay in a hotel is not subject to the certificate requirement, because the use of hotels should also be open to people who do not have access to a test at short notice. Catering for people who do not have a certificate is only possible via room service.

What applies to outdoor areas?
Certificates are still not required on terraces and other outdoor areas.

How do people who have been vaccinated abroad with a vaccine not approved in Switzerland and who do not have an “EU Digital COVID Certificate” have access to areas that require a certificate?
It is currently planned for these people to be tested for access and thus receive a certificate. The Federal Council has sent the cantons a proposal for consultation to expand the list of vaccines approved for a Swiss certificate to the list of the European Medicines Agency (EMA). After the consultation, the Federal Council will decide on the extension.

Update 10th of January 2021

Wearing a mask is mandatory in the public area of shops, shopping centers and markets, post offices and banks, museums, theaters and concert halls, administrative buildings, places of worship and religious common rooms, cinemas, train stations and libraries. It is also compulsory to wear a mask at weekly, monthly and annual markets as well as for staff in the guest area of restaurants (including bars and clubs, discos and dance halls). All those who provide or use services where there is physical contact or the required distance cannot be maintained must also wear a mask.

Further information on the handling of the mask requirement in the hotel can be obtained from our reception!

Post from 1st of June 2020:

Dear guests

The new reality in a world with Corona has a major impact on the needs of our guests in hotels and restaurants. We would like to inform and reassure you that we will do everything in our power to provide you with a pleasant and relaxing stay at the Hotel Rössli Gourmet & Spa. We have done a lot for your well-being and your safety and adhere to the safety concept of GastroSuisse and HotelSuisse. We even go a step further in some respects. It is important to us that the extended hygiene measures can be implemented very discreetly, after all, your holiday feeling should not be affected.

Corona protection concept Hotel Rössli Gourmet & Spa

The concept is based on the current state of knowledge and the requirements of the BAG and hotelleriesuisse. Adjustments are possible.

Welcome / check-in

We’ll be happy to greet you with a smile. We will not shake hands at the moment.

The reception area is the narrowest and most frequented area in our hotel. Here there are distance markings on the floor. Please help us to comply with the 2m distance rule. There are several disinfection stations at the reception and in public areas.

Since the recommended 2 meter distance at the reception is difficult to maintain, we have attached a plexiglass partition.

We do not provide a room tour as we normally do with our guests. We are happy to explain to you the most important things at check-in and answer your questions.

Unfortunately, the use of books, magazines or newspapers in our library is not permitted for the time being.

Entrance and lounge area, elevator, terrace

You will find a disinfection dispenser at the reception, please use it when entering and leaving the building.

No more than eight people should be in the lounge area at the same time. We have placed chairs and tables in such a way that holding distance is possible.

Please do not use the lift with other guests


We have now placed chairs and tables in such a way that holding distance is possible.

A maximum of four adults (plus children from the same family) can sit on each table. We especially ask groups to take this into account.

Only five people or several people from the same family / group are allowed at the buffet.

Of course, changes are possible at any time.


The rooms are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before arrival. We place even more value on this than before. Please understand that this means that daily room cleaning takes more time and sometimes takes place in the afternoon.

We would like to discuss the daily room cleaning with our guests individually. The top priority is safety, cleanliness, the wishes of the guests and thus their well-being. Therefore, you also have the option of doing without the daily room cleaning and at the same time protecting the environment!

Staff and guests are not allowed in the room at the same time.

Our staff wear gloves and masks during cleaning.

Restaurant Equo 1706

It is still possible to dine in our Equo 1706 restaurant. Our opening times are as follows:

daily 18.00h to 23.00h
closed on tuesday and wednesday
(kitchen closes at 21.30h)

We are happy to open our restaurant for groups of 10 or more people on request

If you have booked half board, please contact the reception directly.

The already thorough cleaning plans were expanded with additional disinfection runs. You can still enjoy a nice lunch or evening with us.


With the additional measures, our spa still offers space for relaxation. We ask for your help in maintaining the distance! Our outdoor brine bath offers space for 6 people in the current situation. The maximum number of people in our saunas is indicated.

Spa treatments

During the treatments (massages, etc.), our employees wear masks and gloves for your and their own safety (exceptions reserved).

Fitness area

The fitness area is small but fine. We ask for your help in maintaining the distance and understanding that not all devices are currently available.


We also thought of our employees! Employees in the risk group are separated from contact with guests and have their own work station with sufficient distance from work colleagues in the hotel. Please understand that our employees have the option of wearing a hygiene mask.

Mutual respect

We ask our guests for mutual consideration. Wherever possible, please keep a distance of 2 meters from other guests. So, despite Corona, we can offer everyone a nice stay.

Vielen Dank. Grazcha fich. Grazie. Merci. Thank you!
