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.
Enjoy fine dining in a building dating back to a bygone era. The guild room on the first floor lends itself to composing, interpreting and celebrating – and the aim is to unlock that true and original vegetable, meat and fish flavour.
Special Commendation, 2001 for the "loving attention to the historic character of this traditional guesthouse in this beautifully maintained Appenzell village, while respecting contemporary sensibilities".
Special Commendation, 2001: "For the contemporary architectural interpretation of an historic building and for the re-establishment of its role as a public place within the town's social structure".
