The woods are draped in a coat of many colours. Rich green turning into muted yellows, fiery reds and orange. The clear air means you’re never far from an impressive view into the distance. Autumn’s here! And that means it’s game time. Indulge in the exquisite game specialities the city of Lucerne has to offer.
There’s probably no more authentic place to enjoy your dish of game than here. Time at the Galliker seems to have stood still – dark panelling and furniture, simple lamps and a dimly lit interior testify to the age of this venerable inn. It’s the perfect venue for savouring traditional game dishes.
The Wilden Mann was first mentioned as a guest house in 1517. The charm of this traditional establishment has been preserved until the present day. The autumn finds the Burgerstube chefs serving up traditional game dishes as well as new interpretations. They also cater for vegetarians with tantalisingly tasty side dishes of red cabbage, home-made spätzli and fresh mushrooms.
The Wirtshaus zum Unterlachenhof inn has mastered the art of creatively and colourfully combining seasonal and regional ingredients. The wonderfully tender saddle of venison is particularly popular during the game season, accompanied by an exquisite bottle of Shiraz with aromas calling to mind cassis and violets. A treat for all the senses.
The Gartenhaus 1313 is a place where you eat what’s put on the table: hearty fare with a wealth of attention to detail. During the game season you can look forward to the chef’s own creation – Gemspfeffer Jägerart (chamois hunter-style) served with mushrooms, croutons and silver onions. Most of the game is sourced from hunters in Canton Obwalden.
