Gasthaus Passhöhe restaurant

It’s hungry work, being out in the fresh mountain air, so a hearty meal is just what you need. The Gasthaus Passhöhe is a cozy restaurant that serves classic and traditional Swiss cuisine, with regional products and seasonal specialties. It also offers a separate room and a large deck with spectacular sweeping views.
