Staying in Einsiedeln
Einsiedeln is a popular pilgrimage and tourist destination.
With its monastery and the positive energy and ambience within its historic centre, Einsiedeln has always been a magnet for visitors coming from near and far. The imposing centre of Einsiedeln, and primary destination focus for countless pilgrims, is the Baroque monastery dating back to the 18th century. The Benedictine monastery has a history of just over one thousand years. Since the Middle Ages Einsiedeln, with its «Black Madonna», has been one of the most important places of pilgrimage in Europe. The Jakobsweg (St. James Path) also runs through the Einsiedeln area. The many pilgrims’ hostels of the past have since become hotels for holidaymakers and pilgrims.
Alongside fascinating guided tours of the Abbey and village, a visit to the newly-opened dairy plant or the gingerbread museum, Einsiedeln’s attractions are likely to include the sampling of local gourmet delights. Furthermore, various hotels and suchlike for accommodation are available. We recommend the following hotels:
