We are delighted
to welcome you

Host Pascal Käser puts all his passion and commitment into ensuring every detail is just right so that visitors feel at home from the moment they arrive. Nothing makes him happier than seeing guests go home with smiling faces and full stomachs and plans to come back again soon.

Wiebke Kehmann-Krause is the organisational heart of the three person host team. She especially loves planning events – whether family gatherings, weddings or company parties. Her mantra is: nothing is impossible. When Wiebke’s in charge of the planning, both guests and hosts thoroughly enjoy their celebration.

Head chef Birger Kehmann loves not only regional and seasonal cooking but also very happy guests. He feels responsible not just for people but also for products. Strawberries in winter? Not on his watch. For this passionate cook, who has ten years’ experience as a chef at Alter Tobelhof, what matters most are fresh ingredients and the personal connection to local suppliers.

At Alter Tobelhof, people are the priority – not just guests, but the employees, too. Equal appreciation of both is the cornerstone of a place that seeks to make everyone feel at home through fine food and reciprocal respect. 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.
