We are on vacation from

8th until 26th November 2021


Welcome to our historical house “zum Schwarzen Adler – to the black Eagle”. A family affair since 1825.

The Adler Hotel is located at the entrance of the old village Appenzell by the river Sitter. Our Italian restaurant “Little Italy” is in the basement of the house. In the month of October, December, January and March you enjoy delicious home made cheese fondue (Adler Fondue) in our ancient Adlerkeller. Our hotel guests benefit from a large selection of free digital TV and radio channels, free internet access (WLAN and LAN) and a Swiss breakfast. Some bathrooms have been recently refurbished.

The hotel is smoke-free.

If you stay 3 nights or longer you get the Appenzeller Holiday Card as a gift. With this card you travel free of charge to the Mount Hoher Kasten “Top of Appenzell” with its revolving restaurant, to the impressive Ebenalp (Aescher) and to the family mountain Kronberg.



In our hotel you choose from 20 rooms. The Adler and Broger Suite and the Family Room are located in the 400 years old wooden building. All of the rooms have its own WC with shower or bathtub. Some bathrooms have been recently renovated in a contemporary style. Almost all Double Rooms in the old building are equipped with single beds made of European walnut. In the new rooms there is a pleasant atmosphere thanks to solid oak wood. If you would like a bed bridge (stay 2 nights or longer), please inform us in advance.

In Summer you relax easily in comfortable garden furniture in the quiet backyard – Sonnendeck – behind the house. There you can enjoy also your breakfast.

Bicyles & bikers – welcome! We offer you a few parking spaces under the carport behind the hotel. Bicycles can be parked in our garage.
