Waldhaus Restaurant, Pub & Patio


Recommend To Friends

Fairmont Banff Springs, 405 Spray Avenue
  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

In a secluded spot by the Spray River and the golf course’s 15th tee is Waldhaus, the Fairmont Banff Springs’ charming House in the Forest. This renovated 1927 Bavarian-style ‘cottage’ was once the golf clubhouse. Waldhaus’ menu is inspired by Alpine and German cuisine; the fondue is a signature dish.


The dark wood panel décor, oversized fireplace and beautiful wine cabinet (that houses a fine selection of new- and old-world labels) complement the authentic European cuisine. The cozy pub below features two giant 80″ HD screens (great for sports), free pool and darts, ‘famous’ Das Boot (big, boot-shape glass of German draft) and a patio with a terrific view of mountain and golfers-at-the-tee.
