Swiss German Workshop "visit a restaurant"

Enjoy a wonderful view from the restaurant Hertenstein and order your food in Swiss German thanks to our special theme course (24./31.10. and 7.11.).

On the first two evenings here in TLC you will learn some basic Swiss German that will help you order your meal and ask for explanations on what different dishes are. You will also practice discussing everyday topics so you can carry out small talk with those at your table. On the third evening you will put it all into practice in the exclusive Hertenstein Restaurant. Not only will you be enjoying delicious food and wine, you’ll also have a tour of the kitchen and learn more about Swiss culinary specialties.
