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.

The Swiss Chalet offers the ultimate alpine dining experience in a classic Swiss-style setting. Käse Spätzle (homemade Swiss dumpling topped with cheese and crispy onions) and delicious fondues make the Swiss Chalet a delectable dining experience for groups of up to 90 guests. The lovely and cozy architecture also makes the Swiss Chalet Vail’s favorite destination for Farewell Brunches and casual Luncheons, featuring Sonnenalp’s famous breakfast buffet or the customized menu of your choice.
