Designed by star architect Mario Botta, this is the most elevated restaurant in the canton of Vaud. Located at the end of the glacier, the building stands for the highest of pleasures: for the eyes when they gaze over the highest peaks of the Alps and on the culinary side. The sumptuous Peak Brunch, for example, is the perfect start to a perfect day on Glacier 3000.
At Restaurant Botta, the pleasure of the eyes is satisfied both in the plate and in contemplating the view through the large windows. The restaurant seems to be perched on a rocky promontory, your gaze wanders to the horizon, meeting the blue sky and majestic peaks.
The dining area is divided over three floors and offers a traditional restaurant and self-service. Choose a small snack, be tempted by local specialities or opt for the hearty Peak Brunch.
Once you've had your fill, enjoy the many tourist attractions at Glacier 3000: hiking or snowshoeing on the glacier, skiing, thrilling on the Alpine Coaster or the thrill of the Peak Walk - the only bridge in the world connecting two peaks.
