The picturesque restaurant is an ancient house made of wood in the Walser village Medergen on more than 2000 m asl.

A special excursion is the hike to the Walser village of Medergen. At exactly 2004 m above sea level, the Alpenrose mountain restaurant is located in this picturesque village, which incidentally still lives without running water and electricity. Like all the buildings in the picturesque village, the restaurant is a wooden house several centuries old. Home-made specialities from the region.
