A historic hotel set amid the mountains. Eight cosy and simple rooms, with accommodation for a further 55 guests in the annexe. Guests are served seasonal products from the region and the finest Appenzell delicacies. This family-managed mountain hotel can only be reached on foot, and is ideal for hikers, mountaineers and bikers. The Alpine herdsmen and dairymen make an impressive spectacle as they go about their work on the meadows surrounding the hotel during summer – a chance to experience traditional agriculture in a totally natural setting.
