Dear Friends of Amden-Retreat  

Unfortunately the Swiss Franc has become the safe-haven currency of unsettled investors from the Euro area with the unfortunate result that Switzerland has become 20% more expensive for visitors from the Euro area.  

We want you to be able to visit Amden in the usual relaxed fashion without having to dig deeper into your pockets and thus we continue to offer our affordable friendship rates to all visitors from the Euro area.   We've had our friendship rates for three years now. They are fixed in EURO and are about 1,40 Francs to a EURO, meaning your EURO in Amden retreat is worth 1,40 CHF and not only about 1,00 like the current exchange rate. You'll profit from that for your accommodation, your meals and whenever you spend a lovely evening with us at the bar or at the comfortable fire-place.  

We are looking forward to your visit!  
Your Amden-Team
