Gastronomy in the Bären

Jürgen Schmid and Carlo Bet stand with their good names for tasty gastronomy; be it in the Bärenstobe or in the Wiichöller. The two have known and appreciated each other since their time together at the Säntispark in Abtwil and at the Römerhof in Arbon.

With his Mediterranean cuisine with Alpine influence Jürgen Schmid achieved 13 GaultMiliau points at the “Aglio e Olio”.

With Jürgen Schmid and Carlo Bet you have two excellent chefs in the house.
In the Tavern or the Bärenstobe you can enjoy à-la-carte dishes according to your taste. A modern, alpine cuisine with traditional dishes from the Appenzellerland and the surrounding Land of milk and honey. This also applies to our other gastronomy offers. Make your reservation right here.
