There is no reason of going far away when all the good things are close by!
Sustainability and local value creation are important issues for us. According to this principle we want to present local and regional products on your plate whenever it is possible.
It does not get any closer. Therese provides us all year round with self-drawn sprouts. In the summer months we are having our own garden. Salads, herbs and decorative flowers from our garden can be found on your plate from mid-June in the Restaurant Bären. And the blossoms of our elder bush are the basis for our delicious syrup or jelly on the rich breakfast buffet.
Monika runs a small farm in Innerwengen. If you plan to visit her you can combine it with a trip to the Staubbachbänkli. From Monika we receive fresh alp butter and goat cheese specialities.
Fischerei Beat Abegglen
Beat is our regional fisherman. He supplies us with freshly caught whitefish fillet from Lake Thun and other specialities from Lake Brienz such as burbot, brienzlig or roach.
Our local hunters
For years we have been supplied with chamois, deer and sometimes even ibex by local hunters. We appreciate the work of the hunters very much. They take care of the wildlife around Wengen all year round. Especially in winter time the hunters provide the wild animals with food. Thank you very much. In autumn we serve you our game specialities from local hunting.
Willi Schmid Master of Cheese
The Städtlichäsi in Lichtensteig is now well known far beyond its city limits. We find Willi’s unique cheese creations so extraordinary that we cannot withhold them from you. You will find his delicacies complemented with alp cheese from Wengernalp or Spätenenalp on our cheese selection.
