Hotel Garni Rössli -
a traditional hotel in Eastern Switzerland

The Rössli in Wittenbach looks back on a long tradition: the name of the hotel comes from the so-called "Rösslipost", which organised the transport of letters and passengers between St.Gallen and the Lake Constance region. The horses of the "Rösslipost" stopped here and were given their portion of oats at the old Rösslischeune, while the postilion and guests lingered in the parlour.

The "Rössli" restaurant has been owned by four generations of the Müller family since 1886. The building was continuously expanded and was ultimately run as a restaurant, hotel and event gastronomy.

In November 2015, the property has been transferred to the company Hengartner + Partner Luft- und Klimatechnik AG from Wittenbach. The hotel operates as a bed and breakfast hotel now.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Hotel Garni Rössli!
