Idyllic hiking destinations are aplenty in the mountains of the foothills of the Alps – Weißenfluh Alpe is one of the most idyllic of them. Content cows in the meadow, an incredible panorama, the peace and quiet of an alpine meadow and the fragrance of herbs – the reasons for returning to the valley are few once you have come to the traditional alpine inn. The food is authentic and plain – soups, snack platters, fruit juice, cheese and bacon. The cake is home-made. The Kässpätzle with potato salad (upon advanced booking) is a must.
