Hotel Schlüssel

Hospitality in action

Do you enjoy a familiar approach, a warm atmosphere, cultivated Nidwalden tradition and creative regional cuisine of the highest standard? Then we're just the right choice for you. Host Conny and her team will personally make sure that you have everything you need. 

Breakfast – the perfect start to the day

The generous breakfast buffet includes everything you could possibly need for a successful start to the day, from the homemade Schlüssel muesli to the fresh bread from the village bakery and the homemade jams made from regional fruits.

To the restaurant

The Schlüssel garden – an oasis in the heart of the mountains

Head to the Schlüssel garden for some refreshment after a hike, or to enjoy some long-awaited rest. Choose one of the secluded spots, put your feet up and breathe in the fresh mountain air of Nidwalden.

The Schlüssel and its long-standing tradition

Our boutique hotel has been growing steadily over the decades, with meticulous attention to detail. The unique establishment is known for its authentic tradition, courage to try new things and for a great passion for hospitality:

The Spezerei – nothing but the best from Nidwalden

Around 1930, the “Spezerei”, the neighbourhood store in the upper village of Beckenried, sold all of the useful things of everyday life. Today, we welcome you in the lovingly restored historic ambience with a drink before your evening menu. As in the past, you are surrounded by selected local products that make everyday life that much more appealing. We’ll leave it to you to browse a range that includes our homemade Schlüssel muesli and handmade natural soap.
