RESTAURANT RIFFELHAUS

Delicious Swiss cuisine

The menu contains the classic dishes: cheese fondue, Käseschnitte (cheese toast) and rösti. The rösti in Restaurant Riffelhaus is the favourite dish of many of our regular guests. The ingredients are simple: potatoes, salt, pepper and, if desired, onions, with the deluxe version having some bacon too – and that’s it. However, preparing rösti at 2,500 metres above sea level is actually an art.

The art of cooking in the mountains

Skill and experience are what is required to successfully prepare rösti at 2,500 metres above sea level. The chef de cuisine at Hotel Riffelhaus has both.

Meeting Place

The new old “ski room”

For decades, ski instructors had their drinks in the ski room. The room was then used solely as a storage room for many years. As part of the major renovations that took place in 2014, the ski room in the Riffelhaus was redesigned as a cosy bar. Join your companions for a mountaineer-style aperitif.

This special cocktail was invented by Francis Sibson, an enthusiastic mountain climber and British physician: “red country wine and Swiss champagne combined in equal proportions”. A tasty concoction that apparently even restores your energy. Sibson belonged to the rope team of the first climbers to conquer the Liskamm in 1861.
