Fondue room "Adlerkeller"

The historic Adlerkeller is not really a cellar in a classical way. In the late Middle Ages the Adlerplatz (square) in front of the house was about three meters lower and bordered directly on the river. So you got straight from the house to the river Sitter. Over the centuries and with the new construction of Metzibrücke (stone bridge built in 1845) the Adlerplatz was increased. On August 1, 1957, our grandfather Johann Leu-Broger opened the garden terrace after he had “sunk” the Schwarzer Adler (Black Eagle). Part of today’s terrace is located above the front room of the basement.

According to unconfirmed records, there was already a “vaulted room” with the Bollenstein floor at today’s Adlerkeller around 1490. After the village fire in 1560, the existing was rebuilt on the foundations of the old building. The Fondue room can accomodate a maximum of 35 people and can be reserved for groups of more than 10 people.

Boža and Franz Leu-Kralj decided in 2009 to open the former storeroom to the public. Within four months, a total of 3m3 of earth was driven out with a carrette, and layers of glass (4cm thick) were placed on a steel frame above the Bollenstein. To the left and right of the glass, strip parquet was laid.
