Lodging
“Stunning view on the Swiss mountains and Emission lake. You'd rather think of being in the Norwegian fjords. Excellent cheese fondue, great deserts and super service. A welcome point of rest after a beautiful mountain hike! An easy accessible real mountain hut, also great to spend the night with kids as a first hut experience.”
