I was with 3 other adults with rental car. Ended up here after our booked hotel wasn't available anymore (owners suddenly away). But here was even better. It was a 5-minute drive uphill and so scenic. Hostess Astrid was just great. Food both looked and tasted great. Breakfast was Italian coffee, croissants and buns, jams, cheese, ham, Nutella. Local beer worth trying for sure; I like the 'doonkull' or dark best (spelling?) They were always ready to help with small things--very accommodating. Room was very comfortable although simple, but we slept so well. Scenery was spectacular. Bergheim is 900m up and faces a mountain that is 3000m high. We met folks from Germany and Belgium who come yearly to this gasthaus. This area is perfect for motorcycle trips with all the turns and switchbacks on the mountains. So glad we stayed here instead of in the city. We took day trips to go see William Tell statue, lakes, chalets, and other small towns. Even if you aren't Catholic, the churches and cathedrals are fantastic. Wow! Wow! At one town, the organist was practising on the pipe organ and it was moving. If you need to shop, a debit card that has the Visa symbol is the easiest as you can use it anywhere. We found not many people actually speak English like they would more in cities, but many understand a lot and we quickly picked up key words on menus. Astrid, the owner, did everything she could to accommodate special dietary needs. If you want to know the true Swiss culture, staying at a gasthaus like this is a great way. GPS is very helpful in finding things because it's hard to understand signs. Camera is a must. I wouldn't want to drive up to GB for the very first time in the dark although it is so fun there in the evenings at the restaurant that we didn't want to go out anyway. Highly recommend it and we are already talking about going back.
