For years, a visit of Gasthaus Adler has been a tradition for many families spending their holiday in the Aletsch Arena. This well-established restaurant is located on the Aletschpromenade, which connects the car-free mountain villages of Bettmeralp and Riederalp.
For the tourist or local, it is the ideal location to take a break while hiking or relax after a long day of mountain adventures. Through this central and strategic location, you will reach an important clientele throughout the seasons.
Restaurant, Terrace & Office
This fully functional restaurant leaves nothing to be desired. The alpine style bar is designed with authentic wooden features and cliff-like dividing walls, which symbolize the picturesque backdrop of the building. These walls offer the possibility to divide the restaurant into two large areas, presenting you a wide array of ideas, like hosting private events or entertain your guests with live music in one room and simultaneously be open a la carte for guests passing by. Joining the two rooms together, the restaurant has 183 m2 of net usable space. To complete the mountain experience for your guests, there is a cozy fireplace corner.
Also, your guests will have access to any amenity they will need. Restrooms for men and women are one floor below. The sunny, 84 m2 terrace is positioned towards the South. In the midsummer heat, the roofed balcony offers extra space for those wanting to enjoy the panoramic view of the mountain scenery in the shade. An unobstructed view awaits you, from the Bättlihorn until the famous Matterhorn and Weisshorn. Furthermore, a grilling area is available on the terrace, for some live cooking action on sunny days.
Separated from the bustle of the restaurant and kitchen, a 21 m2 office is located on the same floor, where all administrative work can be done, and ideas can be elaborated in peace.
Kitchen, Apartment & Staffrooms
The modern kitchen is fully functional and very spacious. All equipment is professional grade. The space is designed for a practical and efficient teamplay between kitchen and restaurant staff. Attached to the restaurant kitchen, is a consumer grade kitchen with dining area, which may be used by staff for their morning, lunch, and evening meals. The staff kitchen offers access to the backyard of the restaurant, where staff can enjoy the outside space surrounded by nature.
A hallway connects this staffkitchen to the apartment, which can be used as a 2-to-3-bedroom apartment, or a studio with private kitchen and two separate staffrooms, depending on the wishes of the restaurateur. Besides this apartment, on the lower floor there are 4, potentially 5 staffrooms, which can be reached through the staircase of the apartment building. These rooms may be used for own staff, or rented out to other companies, as the demand for staff rooms is always high in the area.
Wellness, Cellar & Garage
The lower floor of the building provides enough facilities to get creative with your business concept. The Wellness area has a Sauna room, Fitness area and Solarium. Expand your business model by providing this sought-after facility for guests staying in the surrounding area.
Besides the Wellness, there are several storage possibilities, a laundry area, and a garage with functioning electric car for food and beverage delivery in summer.
The restaurant lies in an apartment building with 11 apartments. The center of the Riederalp is just a 10-15 minutes’ walk away and the Bettmeralp can be reached within 5 minutes. The direct neighborhood of Schweibe mostly consists of authentic and luxury chalets.
Partial conversion of the restaurant
In the restaurant area, a partial conversion of the restaurant into a primary residence is possible. Below you can see a proposal for one of the conversion options, where part of the restaurant can be converted into a 2 bedroom flat with a south-facing balcony. If you would like to know more about the possibilities, we would be happy to show you during a viewing appointment.
