The "Sternen" history

The Swiss Mittelland offers a wonderful and varied selection of interesting urban and rural areas for its visitors. Amidst this idyll, the Romantik Hotel Sternen lies in the extremely peaceful village of Kriegstetten. The historic building was built in 1790. After a tragic fire and the immediate reconstruction of the house in 1847 the first guest rooms were arranged for travelers.

A warm-hearted welcome!

Gerber laid the foundation stone for a house whose reputation shines far beyond the borders of the small village. Not for nothing was the Romantik Hotel Sternen described by Switzerland Tourism as a jewel in the Swiss Mittelland. When entering the lobby you get the feeling, you would be in a different time period. The entire house is decorated in a rural Biedermeier style. Many pieces of furniture come from surrounding farmhouses, where they were sorted out at the beginning of the 20th century.

Together with elaborately crafted Biedermeier furniture from the Black Forest, this results in a pleasant feel-good effect. Warm wood has been lovingly crafted and gives the rooms an authentic charm. Nevertheless, the renowned hotel does not abandon the most modern comfort. Currently much-vaunted values such as sustainability, quality and value have always been lived here and therefore automatically associated with the Romantik Hotel Sternen.

Since Erhard and Berta Gerber-Scholz had no descendants, they were looking for a buyer. They found what they wanted with Hans and Käthi Bohren-Feusi, who took over the stars in 1952. Her youngest son followed with his wife Margrit in 1975. In 2010, the staff was handed over to Christoph and Manuela Bohren-Pichler, who have been running the traditional house for the third generation ever since.

During the more than 60 years of their work in Kriegstetten, the Bohren family has managed to preserve the original character of the house and to transform a piece of living history into the present day. In the background, the infrastructure and the offer were adapted again and again to the latest developments. So the "Sternen" has been known for decades for its solid, reliable quality and professional hospitality.
