Berggasthof äscher Switzerland

Perched on a cliff edge the 170 year old Äscher Restaurant in Ebenalp in Appenzell, has graced the front cover of National Geographic magazine and been splashed over Tourist Guides, travel blogs, instagram posts and newspapers far and wide.

It was described by Huffington Post as “One of the five most interesting restaurants in the world” and its popularity has seen tourists flocking there in droves.

However, the success has put a great strain on the family working this small restaurant. The building is old and the interior is quite cramped. So much so that at the end of 2018 they finally decided to call it a day. The owners of the Berggasthaus, the Wildkirchli Foundation, are now making some renovations to the restaurant over the closed season and a new team led by Gallus Knechtle of Firma Pfefferbeere will take over the restaurant once it reopens in May. If you are hiking or walking in this beautiful part of Switzerland, you can still admire the beauty of this building and its amazing position clinging to the rocks from the outside until it reopens.
