Great selection of food ... juicy turkey , tender brisket, and all the fixings ..,, the biggest disappointment was the lack of traditional thanksgiving desserts ... no pumpkin pie... no pecan pie ... but alot of other desserts totally unrelated to holidays ... cotton candy ???!!!! Anyway it was still ok ....

This will be our 10th December, returning to the Sonnenalp with friends & fellow skiers from Pittsburgh, Pa. My husband & I say that The Sonnenalp feels like a second home.

Year after year we return to the Sonnenalp for our anniversary and it is always the high point of our celebration. There is not a nicer and more professional staff anywhere! Be sure to sample the many relaxing appointments in the Spa.

It is always a pleasure returning to the Sonnenalp. The service is and always has been impeccable. The facilities are top-notch and nothing beats a buffet breakfast in Ludwig's. The Swiss Chalet restaurant is the closest you can come to a raclette stube in Zermatt without having to fly to Switzerland. The staff do their very best to make sure...

My husband and I stayed here on a last-minute trip in April 2016. The property is so quaint and beautiful; we felt like we were in the European Alps (perhaps the name should indicate that). The spa was relaxing and beautiful. The restaurant/bar had a really nice, mountain vibe. Not sure I'd pay the in-season rates, but if you're looking...

The Sonnenalp was perfection from beginning to end. I traveled with my husband and 7-month-old daughter and a few of the highlights for us included: Location: The best!
