Buffet & Bar Riffelberg

The ‘roesti’ stand in the self-service food market is a particular attraction and the staffed bar is also extremely popular.

An excellent spot in the newly-built extension has been chosen for “Vue du Cervin, de la Dent Blanche et des sommets environnants”, the large and valuable oil painting by François Gos.
