About the Hotel: The rooms at Hotel Regina in Mürren
The red building stands in the middle of the mountain village Mürren. The girl at the front desk was very friendly and showed us the rooms which were renovated with care. They offer modern facilities while keeping true to the hotel’s Art Deco style. After the rooms, she showed us the Jungfrausaal, the dining hall with big windows. We were struck by the beauty of this dining hall which offers views right on the Jungfrau massif. We made a reservation for the evening.
Aperitif with a view to Mount Jungfrau on the terrace of Hotel Regina
We started the culinary adventure with a glass of Sancerre on the terrace. The legs were still hurting from today’s hike from Wengen so the glass of white wine helped. We cheered to the Jungfrau massif vis-à-vis and enjoyed the warm summer breeze at the end of a hot summer day in the mountains.
Diner at Hotel Regina in Mürren
The dining room of this Art Deco hotel struck me. Through the high windows, I watched the last sunbeams of the day caress the mountains on the other side of the valley. What happened in the halls of hotel Regina over the last century? I discarded the thought, sat at the table, and ordered a glass of Champagne.
The green salad was crispy and fresh. As we were really hungry from the hike we couldn’t wait for the main dish. Matthias went for the veal ragout with housemade potato mash and veggies. He looked very happy. I decided to go with my favorite dish: homemade ravioli. I did not regret it for a minute. They added sage and pine cones on top. It was all I hoped for.
So far this was just the perfect dinner. While sipping on our Pinot Noir, we were discussing about the dessert as we always do. And as always we went for it.
