Restaurant Bären Review
In the late 1600s, postal workers traveling the Oberland needed a place to eat and swap horses. They found what they needed in this lumbering wood chalet, one of the oldest buildings in the area. Today the Amacher-Uetz family taps into its 10 generations of experience running the place to serve outstanding Swiss specialties. Don't miss what could arguably be the country's best Suure Mocke, a tangy braised-meat dish that's marinated in wine and vinegar for two weeks. More than half of the guests are locals who gather among the thick, lumpy walls of plastered river rock to sample about 30 wines, many of which are Swiss. Yummy desserts like apple pies and meringues are hard to pass up.
