Stüberl at Ludwig’s

Enjoy a variety of settings! Ludwig’s interior features the Sun Room with elegant, subdued lighting and the Stüberl, our private dining room. The intricate furniture, elegant décor and exquisite china imported from Bavaria make Ludwig’s a memorable location for your special event.

Ludwig’s Restaurant

Vail’s most unique mountain private event destination, Ludwig’s offers expert service & warm hospitality in a magical setting that has the power to combine the natural al fresco beauty with the warmth and convenience of a traditional dining room.

Ludwig’s architectural highlight is the Terrace – a glassed-in room that features breathtaking views of Vail Mountain and the Gore Creek. Its retractable ceilings and walls are both magical and versatile. The adjacent Sun Room and Stüberl offer elegant, subdued lighting and the Sonnenalp’s signature Bavarian charm.
