Regional, seasonal, honest cuisine – whatever is available is enough!

The motto is – living without overabundance! But enjoyment and top quality are by no means neglected, quite the opposite. Under the "Genussplatzlen" (fine culinary spots) we have committed partner businesses that rely on the Ötztal and Tyrolean products whenever possible and only extend the "procurement radius" in exceptional cases. For example, to the wine regions of South Tyrol or to the productive farmland and horticultural areas of Austria. In addition to the culinary delights, the "Platzlen" are pure enjoyment in themselves. Because they do without unnecessary frills, such as WLAN or music on terraces and in guest lounges. All that counts here is the genuine Ötztal ambience, deceleration and our Alpine nature - an all-round package for your enjoyable relaxation.


Conscious mountain cuisine

In addition to certification for “Bewusst Tirol” (Consciously Tirol), our very special and outstanding requirements must also be met. The list of criteria is comprehensive, using regional products only in some cases doesn't count at all - the overall performance has to be correct! What does it mean? All types of meat and fish must be sourced regionally, this also applies to other products such as drinks, dairy products as well as fruit and vegetables. And if certain ingredients are not available or the stock has been used up, there will be shortages or even alternative dishes because we just use what is available. Doing without certain things while striving for culinary enjoyment and top quality is also possible in the catering industry.



Who or what are Fine Culinary Spots?

Quite a lot of requirements, right? Yes indeed, that’s why only partner businesses are represented that don't just write about regionality but really put their heart and soul into it. Additionally, every partner offers "eppas Bsunders" (Something Special) - their own personal, in-house specialty dish: you can only find out what it is when you visit the place, because if you cook seasonally and regionally you have to be quite flexible.
