Restaurant with 16 Gault-Millau points
The Krone (Crown) began as a tavern on the Sihl-Brugg in 1796. 201 years and 13 generations later it now boasts no fewer than 16 Gault-Millau points. While the generations changed, the families stayed the same, whether they were that of the hosts or the guests.
Since the First World War a guestbook has been kept and from the photographs it can be seen that such people as Prince Heinrich of the Netherlands, the Duke of Mecklemburg, Prince Philip of the United Kingdom, General Henry Guisan, the famous author Max Frisch and many others have been there. The building has existed since 1267 when it was on the mule track between Horgen and Sihlbrugg. According to the history books, there was much horse and pedestrian traffic along this route in the 14th century, hence stables were built. Then in 1528 it was turned into a customs house.
