Dear guests and friends of the Hotel Bären

Quite frankly: Some expressions so naturally used by our guests in Appenzell leave us – a former inhabitant of Zug and southern Baden native – rather puzzled. Rustic Swiss words such as baas (comfortable, snug), aamechelig (enticing, welcoming) or äädig (pleasant) can only be found here in the Appenzell region.

Many generations before us have cultivated the Appenzell hospitality in the Bären Hotel with much love and passion. So, it is a matter truly dear to our hearts to make you feel all round baas in our Hotel Bären. We achieve this primarily thanks to our äädig team, the aamechelig culinary delights and the cosy Bären (bear) ambience.

Chönd zonis! (Visit us again!)
