Delicious schnitzel and spätzle! Wonderful atmosphere and excellent service! The restaurant has many Swiss decorations like large cow bells - typical of a European gasthaus! Fine dining at its finest!

Hi there! Yes they usually are open Christmas day, but have a set menu. You really need reservations for that day and now would probably get you a table for Christmas. Don't leave it too late!
