the entire experience is worth the trip to the hills, the wee animals outside, the fantastic scenery, the warm welcome and the tasty comforting food!

The Restaurant is unique, and gives you a perfect experience of traditional style. The interiour is authentic, the costumes are authentic and the Food is authentic and good. Yes, its not an old place, but it is a real copy of the tradtional ambiance. Such places become often a "Disney-world" impression. Not here! This place is built with original carpenter... More

Schnauggebock, part of the Waldegg Experience is a family owned Restaurant that is truly unique. The super creative owner family has created an experience for the visitor that goes way beyond a gastronomic experience. The food, service and the attractions at the Waldegg are unique and original..Go and look for yourself when in Switzerland.

This restaurant offers a different but interesting option for dining. Situated in an old house, with interesting decor, it offers traditional swiss food and board games. Have fun playing to your old favourite game while eating good quality food...

We are 2 Aussie tourists and have visited this place twice. By far the best restaurant in Switzerland. Great food, wonderful setting and scenery. For a truly Swiss experience try Schnuggebock.

If you want to give your visitors a Swiss dinner experience, this is the place to go. Took my parents here when they visited from The States and they absolutely loved it. Atmosphere and food is authentic swiss. Wasn't real impressed with the service, but in my opinion it was typical swiss service. Older female waitress was real crabby and... More

We got the recommendation of a Swiss friend in Australia, with only the hint: "just go there and you will find an experience...."; and he was right! Even the short drive up to the Waldegg is already nice, with sweeping views over the mountains. We visited on a Tuesday evening and were surprised that all but 2 tables had already... More

So this is like a restaurant created by the Swiss Tourist board but once you get past the twee venue with the staff in traditional costume, the food is traditional and very good quality. Be sure to go when it is bright as the scenery here is spectacular. The views are like a Rembrandt painting, so perfect is the countryside... More

We have eaten there a menu what was o.k., but we didn`t absolutely appreciate the theater they put into the scene during the menu. They simulated thunderstorms, they spent the lights, and they came in with petroleum lamps. If they believe that this is a lovely idea - they are completely wrong. It is only a silly and disturbing gag.... More
