Why we always go back to Berghaus Betelberg: The Rösti-Croquettes and the terrace

The reason we come back to this place is not only the delicious Rösti Croquettes but the unbeatable view from the terrace.From the wooden terrace with the red charis and tables you can see Wildstrubel on the other side. Very often when we are there, we just sit and look at the clouds flying over these mountains while the Swiss flag dances in the wind and makes a meditative tac-tac-tac sound.

Delicious Rösti Croquettes and sweet summer melon in Berghaus Betelberg

Rösti-croquettes with Salad and melon

The Rösti Croquettes at Berghaus Betelberg are delicious. The potatoes were fresh and had taste. The fried part is crispy and freshly made. Be careful and don’t burn yourself, as they came pretty hot. We enjoyed the green salad with the French sauce. It was fresh and locally grown. The plate comes with a melon which either serves as a starter or a desert.

The Berghaus Betelberg has a small stable with cows. This is great for families as kids can have a look at the animals why the adults are chilling out on the terrace.

The Berghaus Betelberg is open all year

Berghaus Betelberg is open all year! This is rare as many mountain restaurants in Switzerland are closing in mid-season. In summer, hikers and people just wanting to grab a good byte can chill out on the terrace (sometimes there are even sunchairs!). In winter, skiers can stop here to grab a byte.
