Grandmother Ida was already known for its cuisine and traveled for their incomparable Nidlechueche the guests from afar. Fredy son graduated from the chef apprenticeship at the father of the famous Fredy Girardet and brought the nouvelle cuisine in the Oberland. Together with his beautiful wife Monika, he took over the family business in 1961 and led the Alpenrose in the league of Swiss chefs. Each season has been invested in the house and renovated in 1976, the company was a proud member of the Relais & Châteaux Association. Unfortunately Fredy von Siebenthal died with less than 50 years of heart failure and left Monika and five juvenile children. With the assistance of many regular customers and loyal employees Monika had the courage to continue to run the business with passion. As the son of Michel graduated from apprenticeship as a chef known Real in Vaduz and his years of travel at top chefs in France, Belgium and Canada attended, it was clear to him that he will soon take over the family business.
