Gasthof zum Hirschen


Recommended by Switzerland Tourism

The stately guesthouse, at the heart of the idyllic Oberstammheim village, not only appeals to guests because of picturesque surroundings, but also because of its quality catering. Finest seasonal dishes with regional ingredients and a large portion of flair are served in the nostalgic dining rooms. Six simple hotel rooms, romantically furnished, with toilet and shower on the same floor. A guesthouse equipped with horseboxes - and an ideal abode for outings to nearby lakes and the town of Winterthur.

A general who enjoyed his soup

Already back in 1945, the «Hirschen» inn at Oberstammheim was a place of renown. On the occasion of an inspection tour on the 5th of March 1945 to Stein am Rhein, which had been heavily bombed by the German troops, General Guisan, the commander of the Swiss army, stopped for a break at the old-established restaurant in the Zurich wineland. His entry in the guest book proves it in black and white: the soup was (and still is) very tasty.

For lovers of Historic Hotels

The authentic guesthouse is considered one of the most important town houses rooted in the 17th century, justly pronounced «Historic Hotel of the Year 2014». Careful management of the building’s structure and the three nostalgic rooms boasting original furnishings and a great love of detail bid an enchanting journey back in time. Culinary-wise, focus here is on excellence and regional products in season.
