Westin Galleria recreates the Swiss Alps.
Creativity nourishes the mind and warms the spirit. How perfect during our cold winter months that a hotel can transform itself into an entire village that looks like it magically transported itself to Edina from the Swiss Alps.
The Westin Winter Village is a cozy alpine retreat that will delight and awe. Capture the enchantment with an Instagram-worthy chairlift and gondola. The showstopper is a fully heated chalet with an après ski vibe where diners can satisfy their hunger with raclette or cheese and chocolate fondues. Be sure to check the website often for special menus, including a five-course Dom Pérignon dinner on January 11. For more relaxed meals, try Après at Prelude, which offers dining specials alongside live music.
