Alpwirtschaft Chäserenholz

This traditional alpine hut, surrounded by meadows and forests just below Rigi Kulm, promises all the ambience of a mountain hut combined with high-alpine wellness.
Whether you choose Käseschnitte (cheese on toast), fondue, a meat & cheese platter or specialities like carpaccio with alpine cheese and other delights and delicacies – at the Alp Chäserenholz, taking a break from your walk is pure enjoyment.
You may well experience some of the most magical sunrises and sunsets you have ever seen, surrounded by the silence of the Alps, when you stay with Franz-Toni Kennel, the Chäserenholz alpine farmer and cheesemaker. Whether you opt for a comfortable guest room, a bunk in a dormitory or a night on a hay-filled mattress, this is a great place to stay and enjoy yourself.
The Alp Chäserenholz, with its cosy alpine dining room and excellent cheese, can be reached from Rigi Kulm in an easy walk that takes about 20 minutes.
