The essence

The accommodation

We strive for good, clean and comfortable. We spend the night in appealing, regional hotels where attentive staff pamper us. In Switzerland and Austria, we have selected 5 beautiful hotels per Collen Challenge that meet these criteria.

The food

This also applies to the food. The local food is in the center of attention and we enjoy eating among the local population. Nowhere does a cheese fondue taste better than in Switzerland, and nowhere does the Apfelstrudel taste better than in Austria. Dining is often done with the whole group, although this is not an obligation. You are free to dine outside the hotel yourself.

The route

During The Collen Switzerland we drive by far the most kilometers in Switzerland. A trip to one of the neighboring countries is conceivable, but we always spend the night in Switzerland anyway. During The Collen Austria we also drive (almost) all kilometers in Austria. We also spend the night in Austria every day.

On some days we also present a “ leisure route ”. A stage that is just as beautiful, but takes you back to the hotel earlier.
