Restaurant VIVA

Restaurant / Beherbergung – This bistro is right opposite the Gantrisch and the Guggershörnli. Situated on the edge of the village, it is a trendy bar in a somewhat surprising style, with panoramic windows like you more often see in an urban setting. In this unusual new building, with a kitchen display and cookery studio, a very special restaurant has been created. There are lots of little delicacies to sample, Italian ice-cream and fine wines.

Ruined monastery – former Cluniac priory

Abbeys & churches – In the Middle Ages, one of the most important monastery buildings in Switzerland and an important stopping place on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. After the Reformation, the monastery, already partly in ruins, was finally closed. It was used only as a source of stone, and sometimes as a barn. Today, the magnificent ruins are used for cultural events, and walkers on the way to Santiago like to visit it as a source of strength and an impressive sight.
