If you like the Swiss cheese specialties, fondue and raclette, you should be sure to pay a visit to the Chäsalp (Cheese Alp) restaurant, located a short distance from Zurich.
The out-of-the-ordinary, cozy Chäsalp restaurant is housed in what used to be a cowshed on the Alter Tobelhof farm (a protected building) – which is situated at an impressive 61,702cm (24,292 inches) above sea level, as the managers say with a twinkle in their eye.
Amidst this unique alpine hut atmosphere, cheese lovers are in culinary heaven: the menu features no fewer than 15 different cheese fondue variations, and those who have difficulty deciding can opt for the “Fondue Fetä” (Fondue Feast), comprising up to eight different types of fondue. Guests who prefer raclette can prepare their own at the table.
Every Saturday and Sunday, as well as on public holidays, the Chäsalp also offers a “Senne z’Morge” (Herdsman‘s Breakfast) – a real highlight for all brunch enthusiasts. In summer, this sumptuous spread is served outside in the picturesque meadow in front of the farm.
