The exciting story behind the Schwiizer Stube
The "Schwiizer Stube", the cosy restaurant with its beautiful wooden parlours, is located in the building of the Swiss Holiday Park Hotel. Hardly anyone would suspect such a charming, homely restaurant behind the modern, rather sober-looking façade. The "Schwiizer Stube" consists of four wooden rooms: Fichtenstube, Schlossstube, Arvenstube and Fonduestube. They are all different but radiate a cosy ambience. There is an interesting story behind the restaurant Schwiizer Stube. The antique wood in the four rooms comes from historic houses that were demolished at some point. While the wood in the Arvenstube comes from an ancient house in Bergün, the Fichtenstube was once at home in Obwalden. The wood with its carvings in the castle parlour adorned a castle in the canton of Neuchâtel in olden times and the clinker floor in the entrance area comes from a former monastery in the Münstertal. The two beautiful old tiled stoves used to heat noble patrician houses in the canton of Thurgau. The antique wood, the tiled stoves and the floor were collected in two years by Walter Trösch, patron of the Swiss Holiday Park, through a wide network of contacts and saved from destruction. In 2007, the collected material was installed in the current Schwiizer Stube. The four unique Stuben represent the diverse Switzerland, just as the menu and wine list do. The concept is consistently implemented and that is precisely why it is so convincing. The Schwiizer Stube is not only suitable for a romantic meal for two, but is also ideal for larger and smaller family celebrations. The likewise antique windows that separate the parlours can be opened if necessary.
