A visit to the Himmapan Lodge in Rapperswil-Jona is a unique experience. The lodge and restaurant lie in the center of Knies Kinderzoo, in a slightly elevated location immediately above the elephant and camel enclosures. From here, guests – whether visitors to the children’s zoo or external guests – can observe the animals while also enjoying the amazing vista over the lake and surrounding Pre-Alps.

A Thai team conjures up authentic and traditional Asian dishes, as well as their own mouthwatering creations. Adding to the experience are over 300 carefully selected decorative elements from Thailand.

The Thisiam Lounge is also furnished Thai-style and invites guests to relax in comfort over a delicious drink.
