Great beer! Dark roasted malt but lighter body than stout. Nice beer garden for taking a break and relaxing.

stopped here after paragliding down to the valley, then coming back up to Murren on the Cable Car. They were serving anything but cold cut meats and cauliflower soup. We had the soup and it was great.

As I recall, it was about 30SF which is approximately $30. Food in Switzerland is expensive! $30 for a dinner is a common basic price. Luxury dinner is much more. Pension Gimmelwald serves good, basic, family-style cooking... More
