About the “Chalet”

In 1898, opposite the Horgen Oberdorf train station, a restaurant was built in the style of the Nordostbahnen, the so-called “Laubsägeli style”. Several years ago the “Bahnhöfli” was renamed to Restaurant Bar Chalet. This mainly because of its appearance.

The “Chalet” in Horgen Oberdorf is a real rarity: it is one of the few objects of the time, which is still preserved in its original sense, and is under homeland protection. The premises exude much warmth and coziness. Thus, the restaurant chalet includes the unique “Wappenraum” and a cozy dining room with a view of Lake Zurich in addition to its cozy Apèrobar.

The Chalet India Team guarantees excellent cuisine and is convinced that you too will feel at home in the “Chalet”.
