Special Commendation 2000: The guesthouse 'Rössli' in Mogelsberg, a model village when it comes to retaining its ancient structure, was constructed after 1785 either by Johann Ulrich or Johann Jakob Haltiner to a commission from Johann Georg Lenggenhager. The imposing log cabin style construction, faced with shingle, has a completely preserved exterior including impressive rows of windows encircling the three main storeys as well as a curb roof with four curving gables pointing in all four directions of the compass.
Special Commendation 1999: The Restaurant Obstgarten in Oberlangenhard was established in a well-maintained timber-frame construction deriving from the 18th century. In 1974, the building was stripped to reveal its original timber framing. The fine guest lounge still dates principally from the 19th century.
