Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa

    Although the ski slopes of Grindelwald and Wengen are less than an hour away, Victoria-Jungfrau’s high season is the summer, when polychrome sails glide along the bookend lakes, and the mountains bloom green, retaining only crowns of white. Guests spend the evenings enjoying the Alpine air, a heated saltwater whirlpool, the French cuisine at La Terrasse, and the romantic rooftop setting of the Tower Suite. Accommodations The two-level, loft-style suites are the standouts among the resort’s 212 guest rooms. Recreation Downhill and cross-country skiing in winter; golfing (at the Golf Club Interlaken) and boating in summer. Dining Three restaurants, including the sublime La Terrasse. Worthy Diversion Ascend the 9,744-foot-high Schilthorn via cable car to enjoy a vista of more than 200 Bernese Alpine peaks from the Piz Gloria restaurant. Order a glass of white wine before you paraglide back down. Rates Doubles from $365 to $620, suites from $660 to $3,670.
