Official Web Site

A warm welcome to the Käsestube Furgg!

This rustic “stübli” (lounge) built in the chalet style invites its guests to enjoy a convivial get-together.

Allow yourself to be pampered by local cheese specialities like raclette, fondue and grilled open-cheese sandwiches, and enjoy a fine drop of wine from the region to accompany your meal.

Guests with a penchant for sunshine can enjoy both warmth and nature on the sun terrace.

The Käsestube Furgg can be found below the Trockener Steg in the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise ski region, by the piste garden, immediately next to the chairlift valley station.

Opening times:

Winter: December to April
Summer: Closed
Incidentally, do you already know how raclette came to be invented?

In the mid 19th century, two Valais winegrowers lit a warming fire on a cold autumnal morning. They placed their packed lunch consisting of Alpine cheese, bread and (naturally) white wine next to the fire. This led to the cheese being too close to the flames and starting to melt. To prevent the cheese from dripping into the fire, one of the winegrowers took his raclette – the grape knife – and spread the cheese onto a slice of bread, and the raclette was born! Over the course of time, the raclette has been refined to its current form.
