Welcome to the first Boutique-Hotel in Central Switzerland
Enjoy, relax and experience top hospitality!
We are delighted to welcome you in the Boutique-hotel Schlussel. The beautiful house offers 12 Boutique-rooms, each of them a symbiosis of moderne, exclusive comfort with special pieces of long gone times. The restaurant does not have a written menu, the delicious dishes depend on the season, our guests desire as well as the daily changing mood of your host and chef, making it clear: «we serve what we have».

It is not just going out for a meal to the Schlussel –
you come as a guest and leave as a guest-friend.
Conny Huser is originally from Vienna and moved for her love to Seelisberg in the heart of Switzerland. She has a degree in tourism and shares the fascination of wine with Gabrielle. She worked in different positions in Austria and Switzerland, going through all departments from service, bar to kitchen. Most recently Conny was managing director of the Träumli restaurant in Seelisberg. She will be accompanied by the creative chef Małgorzata Łepska. The two have already run the Träumli restaurant in Seelisberg and are a “tried and tested” team. For Malgorzata, it is a return to upscale gastronomy. She was in the restaurant “Przystań & Marina” in Wroclaw and in the 5* hotel “The Capra” in Saas Fee.
Once upon a time…
Ex-hosts in the Schlussel
For 24 years, Gabrielle and Daniel Aschwanden have been the hosts at the Boutique-hotel Schlussel!
Gabrielle`s passion is wine – and the award-winning wine list was her pride and joy. For the time being, you will find them both as jack-of-all-trades and house boys in the Schlussel. They are happy to hand over the Schlussel to these two young and motivated ladies.
The hosts met in a kitchen at the Hotel Belvédère in Hergiswil. Both were doing their apprenticeship. After finishing their training they worked at different restaurants and hotels to gain experience and know-how. Dani always knew that he wanted to be have his own place and be his own boss. While traveling through America they worked on a concept – not having a restaurant in sight. Becoming hosts of the Schlussel was pure luck – it was carneval time and the present tenants of the Schlussel told Dani they are looking for new tenants. Dani did not hesitate, he accepted even though many friends dissuaded him on his decision. At that time the Schlussel had a call of a down to earth pub… expressing this in a diplomatic way!
When Gabrielle and Daniel took over the Schlussel, they first threw out the plastic floors and the orange curtains. After many years of passionate renovations the Schlussel has become a fourstarboutiquehotel on a fivestarlevel, which attracts locals, guests from Switzerland and from New York to Hong Kong in its easy-going ambience.
And still: In the cosy restaurant you can still feel the warmth of the original pub.
