We are delighted
to welcome you

Hostess Wiebke Kehmann-Krause ensures that every visitor feels at home from the very first moment with a lot of heart and soul, engagement and attention to detail. She is only happy when the guest leaves with a smile on his face and a cosy feeling in his stomach. And already looking forward to their next visit.

Pascal Käser is the organisational heart of the host trio. He especially loves planning events – whether traditional family gatherings, glamorous weddings or classic company parties. His credo: Nothing is impossible. If it’s up to him, not only the guests enjoy the party as much as possible, even the host.

Kitchen director Birger Kehmann loves regional and seasonal cuisine. He feels responsible not just for the people, also for the products. Strawberries in winter? Not with him. The passionate chef, who looks back on ten years of experience as head chef of the restaurant Alter Tobelhof, cares deeply about fresh ingredients and personal relationships with local suppliers.

At Alter Tobelhof, the focus is on people – the guests and the staff. Respect for each other is the basis for a place where everyone should feel at home. Culinary and human.


Since 1315

Alter Tobelhof is located in the hamlet of the same name, between Zürichberg and Adlisberg. It is a mere 20-minute walk from Zurich-Fluntern – home to Zurich Zoo and the residential Dolder neighbourhood. Those visiting the hamlet for the first time are always amazed at how rural the former farmstead feels, despite being so close to the city. A little bit of the countryside in the city, or, in other words, a jewel among Zurich’s local recreation spots. Alter Tobelhof has been a popular day trip destination for more than 60 years.

The impressive halftimbered, listed restaurant building offers a sweeping view of the forests, hills and residential areas of the Glatt Valley. Once used as the farmstead’s living quarters and carefully renovated between 2015 and 2016, it is part of a group of buildings whose history stretches back almost 500 years. The earliest mention of the hamlet ‘Hof ze Tobel’ was in 1315.

Our guests can unwind away from the hustle and bustle in the wood-panelled interior or outside on the spacious sun terrace next to the meadow. A welcoming oasis (not just) for city dwellers.
