The original Anker, which opened in 1914, functioned as a political centre for the working classes and national strikes were even organised there. It shut its doors in 2014, but a new restaurant, café and bar rose up in its place as well as a 40-room hotel. With its alpine chic and modern extrovert design features, it feels rather apolitical these days. In the evening it's a grill restaurant offering steaks, burgers, fish and sharing platters from the 'josper' charcoal grill oven, which is a real treat. With coffee, breakfast and newspapers in the morning, good-value daily lunch menus and a wide selection of wines and speciality gins, not to mention an open fire, this place offers something for everyone at any time of the day.
