Zum See
Our family and the team have been offering “Zum See” guests traditional and honest cuisine for around 30 years. The freshest ingredients delivered daily are processed into specialities in the tiny kitchen. This includes fine fish and fish dishes, homemade pasta and desserts all the year round. We serve fresh game specialities in late summer and autumn. A varied wine list of local specialities and Italian and French classics is put together with care each season. We welcome our guests to a “fondue chinoise mountain lodge evening” each Thursday during the winter season. We serve fine, homemade sauces with veal and beef cut wafer thin. The evening is rounded off with a toboggan ride or a romantic 30-minute walk (simple winter hike) into the valley. “Zum See” is also open in the evenings for private occasions and events. The restaurant offers an ideal setting for any celebration, be it a wedding, a christening, a birthday or a business occasion – individual menus are put together according to guests’ tastes.
Every Thursday in the winter season is a “fondue chinoise winter lodge evening”!
