    Hotel Baeren in Wengen has an AMAZING restaurant. You don't have to be staying there but you probably will need to call for a reservation. That's about it for Wengen. There is a hotel on the main drag that has a pretty good fondue, but service was slow and our cc info was stolen there (yes, we know for certain) so I wouldn't recommend it unless you pay cash.

        Rapperswil is unforgetable and Zürich is a divine city ...

        The city of Zürich, has world class ethnic restaurants including fabulous Italian, French and Swiss French. ** See fotos.

        Our younger daughter lives and works in Zürich.

        We know the country quite well. Where are you going ?

          We will spend one night in Rapperswil in September. Any lunch or dinner recommendations?
