Philosophy

Competence, passion, trust - values provide the foundation for our actions!

The Hauenstein Group on Lake Thun has been in business since 1954 and is now managed by the 3rd generation of the Hauenstein family. It was founded by Walter Hauenstein and remains 100% family-owned to this day. The Group has always been dedicated to the Lake Thun region - actively shaping it through its "Real Estate", "Hotels & Restaurants" and "Healthcare" divisions.

Sustainability / Environment

When considering sustainability and environmental management within our real estate projects, we aim to supply buildings with renewable energy and produce our own electricity using photovoltaic systems. Our hotels and restaurants focus on the seasonality of the products offered, and obtain these whenever possible from regional suppliers. We also rely on collaboration with long-standing partners with similar philosophies.
