Monte Verità can accommodate up to 86 guests in its various facilities, all situated within the property's park: the historic Bauhaus hotel, the Art Nouveau-style Villa Semiramis as well as the vacation houses Casa Monescia, Casa Gioia and Casa Marta.
Its splendid location with panoramic view over Lake Maggiore and the utter silence and beauty of this place make Monte Verità the ideal destination for holidays, cultural breaks, conferences or business trips.
The Monte Verità hotel is a Member of Swiss Historic Hotels.
Depending on hotel capacity, participants will be accommodated either in Bauhaus-Hotel or in the Villa Semiramis.
The Bauhaus Hotel was built between 1927 and 1929 by the architect Emil Fahrenkamp, commissioned by Baron Eduard von der Heydt, a German banker and art collector who was the penultimate owner of the hill. The rooms, almost all of which have lake view and generously sized balconies, were recently restored in the Bauhaus style. All rooms have their own bathroom with bath tub or shower, telephone and free Wi-Fi connection.
The Hotel has a unique charm: not only does the building boast original features and Bauhaus furnishings, but its internal geometries frame views of the lush parkland, Lake Maggiore and the surrounding mountains.
The Villa Semiramis was built in Art Nouveau style in 1909 by the Turin-born architect Anselmo Secondo and is situated adjacent to the green tea plantation. Almost every room in the Villa has unparalleled lake view, taking in the Brissago Islands and nearby Italy; each room has its own bathroom with bath tub or shower, telephone and free Wi-Fi connection.
It is said that local residents from Ascona used to buy tickets to go up the roof of Villa Semiramis to spy on the vegetarian colony in the park of Monte Verità, where activities occasionally took place in the nude.
