HeidilachendYour hosts

already more than 30 years we have been working on and in our dream: this hotel and restaurant.  And we have always tried to discover new ways to make your stay even more pleasant and comfortable.
In August 2024 we plan to close the Gasthof zum goldenen Löwen definitely.
Instead, a beautiful restaurant will be built in the Hotel Emmental under the direction of our chef, Michael Gfeller and the longstanding team

We are very glad to have you as our guests.
