Das Elephant

The name sounds strange, if not downright absurd, for a restaurant situated 2,477 metres above sea level in the heart of the Graubünden mountains. But the truth is actually quite simple. During the summer of 1992, an elephant made a four-day guest appearance on the Crap Sogn Gion for a circus performance as part of the Crap Art cultural event. The pachyderm was able to enjoy the breath-taking view from Crap Masegn every morning. And so, during the winter of 1992/1993, we named this restaurant in its honour.

And, since culture usually goes hand in hand with good food, we continue to stand by our values of offering conviviality, hospitality and exquisite culinary delights today.

It’s our pleasure to welcome you as our guest!
