The Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois lies at the very heart of the city of Basel. At the exact spot where, in the Middle Ages, the ships docked at the salt tower in order to transport that much sought-after product down the Rhine and out into the world. Discover Basel, the tri-border area and the charm of our region. Allow yourself to be pampered – to make your stay in our small cosmopolitan city unforgettable.
With over 300 years of history, our Grand Hotel has one of the richest traditions of all the hotels in Europe. It has housed royalty, rock legends and poets.
Experience the only Grand Hotel in Switzerland with a
restaurant with 3 Michelin stars & 19 Gault Millau points.
The Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois is located in the heart of the historic Old City of Basel with breathtaking views of the Rhine. The trade fair, museums and pedestrian shopping area can all be easily reached on foot.
101 rooms and suites are at the disposal of our guests. They meet every requirement and combine history with the most modern comfort.
The STIMMEN festival is an absolutely unique summer concert experience in the tri-border region. Every year a fascinating and extremely varied selection of artists from all over the world
perform here in the region, spanning the divide from rock and pop to jazz, world music and choral singing. A journey of discovery to the most beautiful instrument of all: the human voice.
Majestic big bands, perfectly choreographed dance performances and fantastic show bands from all over the world – that is the Basel Tattoo. In the full spirit of the new motto "Feel the Beat!" the audience will be presented with a breathtaking show that really gets under your skin. At her majesty's command, many bands of royal households give the Basel Tattoo its regal elegance.
On the evening before the Swiss national holiday on 1st August, a spectacular firework display that delights thousands of onlookers every year is set off from three large barges in the middle of the Rhine. The guests in our restaurants and on the terrace overlooking the Rhine can enjoy this unique firework display from the front row!
We are welcoming in the spring and summer with newly transformed ter- races – in May 2017 our guests will be able to enjoy our Rhine terraces in a completely new way, thanks to the outdoor area being redesigned and furnished by Enea Land- scape Architecture. Enzo Enea has achieved an international reputation with his work, in which a symbiosis is created between outdoor and indoor spaces. You can look forward to enjoying our new outdoor areas with high-quality wooden furniture..
Equestrian sport at its best: on August 19, 2017 a special competition will be held as part of the five star CSI in St. Moritz – the Les Trois Rois Top Ten Swiss Cup Final. The competition is one of the highlights of the national show jumping calendar and is being held for the 39th time this year. As the main sponsor we are very much looking forward to this event in the lovely Engadin.
After the relaunch of our entire brand last year, we are following up in 2017 with new uniforms for our 200 employees. While our bartenders used to mix drinks in grey uniforms, they are now dressed from head to foot in elegant black. The simple elegance of the new uniforms is enhanced with bright, colourful details discretely woven into the fabric: for example, the hotel’s corporate colours have been woven into the inner linings and the claim ”Rich in history, young at heart” is also stitched in – in the full spirit of the rich tradition of our hotel and its staff from more than 30 different nations, who imbue it with its youthful spirit.
