My husband and I hiked up to the house and stayed over night, and then hiked back out. It was an unforgettable experience. The hike up and down is gorgeous with sweeping views and mountain pastures. Once we got to the house, we were able to drop our gear off in the bunk room, and head out to the huge... More

I cannot believe I haven't reviewed this one after I visited. It was a great find... Beautiful place in Alps, delicious food. Place offers no hot water and no shower, shared rooms, have to take a cable car to get to. Lots of hiking trails around and plenty of amazing views. I was there in August and it gets pretty... More

Out of our three week Europe trip, we all loved this place the most. It might have been the incredible scenic beauty everywhere we looked, or the charming cozy 170 year old Guesthouse built right into the cliff. It is the kind of experience that you will remember all your life. I loved the gondola ride up, the short hike... More

I stayed in zurich. Rented a car and drove to the area. You can take the train but it will take you a few transfers and a few hours. When we got there took the cable car. We hiked around the area for an hour and just enjoyed the view. This restaurant is 10-15 min hike downward from where the... More

Delicious food, cozy beds with warm duvets, clean amenities, lovely atmosphere with excellent service. Family friendly. Worth the hike! Best Rosti ever. Beautiful views and interesting history, including a historic chapel built into the caves. A fantastic hike from Weisssbad, and or take the lift to Ebenalp. We did the hike with our two children, 9 and 11 and they... More

This is definitely worth the trip. You take an aerial cable up and then hike down or you can opt to hike it from the bottom as well.(A bit longer) The food is simply amazing and all seasonal from the area. The family that run the place are super nice and speak English well enough. They serve the best Rosti... More

My wife was scoping out this place for some time, so we had to go. Went there on September 1 and we took the lift up the mountain and hiked down to the Berggasthaus. You can park your car at the station for the night. It is quite pricey to take the lift (it was about 55 Swiss Francs for... More

We visited here and hiked along the trail to the cliff side restaurant. Dreamy location on the side if a mountain, ate lunch (rosti) with a few Appenzeller beers- it was like being in another planet. One if the coolest places we have ever been, well worth the effort - very friendly people!

After a multi day hike we ended up at the Aescher. Restaurant is very busy in the evenings even frequented by locals, few tourists stayed overnight. Accommodation is basic, but clean. Roeschti in different variations was the choice for dinner and we all enjoyed.

Listen: this is a hostel. Do not come expecting comfort. The proprietors are kind, no-nonsense people who are very good at what they do. The restaurant is very good, classic -- on the expensive side -- but in all of this, you are paying for the SETTING. You are staying in one of the most surreal, magical places on Earth.... More
