Was visiting Lauerz area in Sept 2010 for a friend tracing his ancestors that had lived there. I had noticed a small note about the island restaurant of Schwanau and wanted to surprise my friends upon our arrival. I had called and made reservations from the states, just in case it was popular. The person answering the phone for reservations... More

We travelled in southern Germany, visiting Schwanau near Freiburg, And also throughout Switzerland for our 9th anniversary vacation. Visiting Schwanau Insel was the highlight off our holiday. We intend to go back in the near... More

We visited the Island in very good weather and it was at its best. A calm boat trip, plenty of sunshine and lots of happy people. After a very good lunch we walked around and enjoyed the Art exhibition on the Island. A perfect place for a perfect day, why not have a wedding here? The Kanton of Schwyz has... More

The trip by boat to the island and the short walk up to the little hill where the historic house is located is already worth more than the 2 Swiss Francs that are charged by the friendly ferryman. Due to the cool weather we had to sit inside and I found the room a bit too small for my taste... More

This restaurant is set on an island on a lake (Lauerzsee) in a small village called Lauerz in the Kanton of Schwyz. It is only possible to reach the island by a short boatride - the boats travel every half hour but more often if the restaurant is very busy. The boat costs 2Fr per person for a return journey...
