Between the two events Badrutt’s Palace, a favorite of celebs and royalty alike since its opening in 1896, has some automotive offerings of its own for guests who want to make the most of the famed Alpine passes.
This summer guests of the hotel will be able to test-drive German-built Wiesmann roadsters (below) around the region, the perfect vehicle for enjoying the impressive scenery.
They’re also offering a new Drivers’ Delight package including special car care for those who bring their own stylish wheels.
And finally every guest of Badrutt’s is met at the train station or airport and driven in style to their lodgings in a fleet of Rolls-Royces (above), including a 1968 Phantom (center) that originally belonged to the British royal family.
If you need us, we’ll be by the pool; but drinks are on you….
