Grand Hotel Zermatterhof (1879)

With its superb location at the foot of the massive Matterhorn, the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof was built by local burghers in an effort to take advantage of the surge of tourism to the Alps in the 19th century.
Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains St. Moritz (1864)

"For pottage and puddings and custards and pies
Our pumpkins and parsnips are common supplies,
We have pumpkins at morning and pumpkins at noon,
If it were not for pumpkins we should be undoon."
