Situated in Ticino, known as the sun lounge of Switzerland, Ascona is the ideal starting point for trips around this southern canton, or across the border to Piedmont or even Milan. Ascona is a picturesque town on the shores of Lake Maggiore.
The lakeside promenade, restaurants, cafés and shopping facilities are just a few minutes' walk from the Hotel Eden Roc. The romantic old town of the former fishing village with the arcades and granite piazzas typical of Ticino's architecture invites you to shop in boutiques, galleries and antique shops.
In June, Ascona's piazzas are transformed into a grand stage for international musical performances, featuring jazz and classical music. Europe's equestrian elite also gathers every year in July for the CSI Tournament and Polo Ascona.
