The restaurant is located right next to a major trailhead and the area is a major hiking destination. I walked into this place at 9 pm on an August night after a strenuous hike looking for a hot meal before a 4 hour drive home. I politely asked the maître d' in my broken German whether it was too late... More

We celebrated the birthday of my father in law at this venue - we were a total of eight people and liked it very much - it is very traditional Swiss, great food, service and the hotel rooms were also very clean and neat - dont miss the breakfast buffet - it is a delight!

Often when we travel as a family we do a little detour and visit the famous little hamlet inbetween Bern & Lucerne. (you'll be surpised how packed the place can be, the atmosphere in the restaurant is still good though as the staff is friendly) Their famous Cream Meringue is an absolute must have. The restaurant & hotel is very... More

At the end of the famous Emmental lies this historical restaurant which due to its scenic location is often used for weddings. The cuisine is very Swiss offering typical dishes from that part of the Canton Bern. Tasting the meringue with whipped cream (Nidle) is an absolute must. The drive through the Emmental is worthwhile. You may want to stay... More

We were there to sleep in an igloo. But included in our stay was also the fondue in an igloo. It was very nice and not so cold. Of course we had blankets to warm us, but it was a good experience.

Looking around for a last highlight of our ski holiday, we found the Hotel and Restaurant Kemmeriboden-Bad. The Restaurant is really "off the route" in the "Emmental" in Central Switzerland. Not really knowing what to expect from the restaurant we arrived at Kemmeriboden-Bad - which can't be missed, since it's just one road in the valley. Parking is not an... More

The food and the service is good but very expensive. The restaurant is located in a narrow and shady valley near the small town Schangnau. Do you have none view of the gorgeous mountains. Nobody know why the restaurant is so well known.

The Restaurant and Hotel Kemmeribodenbad is such an exceptional place. At the far end of the Emmental this historic place offers a great experience, far away from everything. The restaurant serves daily menus and has a nice menu list too with lots of dishes prepared with regional products. The food is great, service is excellent, the wine list holds numerous... More

Restaurant and Hotel are in a remote valley, not too far from Thun, at approx 1000m altitude, easy access by car, beautiful old renovated building in the middle of nature. Lunch menu was ok, however the house dessert "Meringue with Icecream" was a delight. A MUST!! Staff very customer oriented and friendly, incl. the manager.
