The picturesque restaurant is an ancient house made of wood in the Walser village Medergen on more than 2000 m asl.
The hike to the Walser village Medergen is a very special excursion. On exactly 2004 m asl, you will find the restaurant Alpenrose in the village, which by the way still lives without constant water and electricity. As all builidings in the small village, the restaurant itself is also a several centuries old wooden building. As super delicious specialities, one will serve you tasty BBQ.
