Description: The SCHWAND is an authentic Swiss restaurant and guest house offering genuine Swiss cuisine and a bountiful brunch on weekends, all at reasonable rates. SCHWAND is located on the south slope just four kilometers uphill from Engelberg and is easily accessible by car in summer and winter. Our large south facing terrace offers breathtaking views to the opposite alpine panorama, and our inviting 'Stübli' invites you to linger and enjoy the warm ambience and delightful menu. SCHWAND is a charming event location with 7 rustic and cosy mountain style rooms with up to 17 beds. The nearby chapel makes SCHWAND a unique place to celebrate weddings and baptisms. Whatever your reason, SCHWAND is a delightful place to get away to relax and recharge.

“Super-friendly, popular - and great apple fritters!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2011

We just popped in for coffee while out walking and couldn't resist a plate of their apple fritters with vanilla sauce, which were even better than the ones on the Apple Fritter Path above Grindelwald! Very friendly staff, despite our limited German. Lots of laughter and a general good feeling coming out of the kitchen. We left at 11.50 and people were pouring in for Sunday lunch, which seemed enough recommendation in itself.
