Interlaken in Interlaken-Oberhasli (District), Bern, Switzerland
Hotel Beau Rivage
This palatial building, influenced by French Neo-Renaissance architecture, was rebuilt in 1899/1900 by Josef Döpfer from Lucerne and architect Bernhard Hauser following a fire. The impressive structure with its central risalit (sic) in the main elevation and polygonal corner tower, clearly dominates the scene at the crossroads. Despite various extensions with dining room and indoor swimming pool, the appearance of the Beau Rivages has been largely retained and the establishment is still one of the finest hotel buildings in Interlaken. Also worthy of note are the belle époque ballroom and the park-like garden with its striking boundary fence and walls.
