Our philosophy for our mountain restaurants: honest and local cuisine

Enjoyment in the huts and restaurants on the Kaunertal Glacier means: rather less, but high quality and preferably everything from Tyrol. The menus in our restaurants on the mountain have been put together with a lot of care and thought so that there is something for all our guests.
We also play our part in the careful use of resources in every single mountain restaurant on the Kaunertal Glacier and in Fendels:

We focus on regional suppliers.
We buy almost all of our ingredients from local farms and Tyrolean companies. Our basic suppliers include Eurogast Grissemann and Grüner from Zams and Kröswang from Upper Austria. We source high-quality meat from butchers Wilhelm (Prutz) and Handl Tirol (Pians); (burger) bread from “Resch und Frisch” (Austria) and the Schranz bakery in Pitztal, as well as eggs and milk from regional farmers.

Our dishes are carefully prepared.
This ensures flavour, valuable vitamins and minerals are retained. New technologies for gentle cooking and cooking with steam and frying with less fat help here.

We offer selected vegetarian delicacies for all those who want to avoid eating meat.
We source crisp, fresh fruit and vegetables for our mountain restaurants from Winkler in Zams.

We do not use plastic.
There are no more PET bottles in our restaurants on the mountain. Our soft drinks from Tirol Limo (Landeck), Wille (Grins) and Hafele (Ried) as well as our glacier beer from Starkenberger (Starkenberg) are served on tap and in glass bottles.

We avoid products from the Nestlé group.
It is difficult to get an overview of the company’s corporate network, but our purchasing team has a list of products to avoid. When it comes to sweets, we offer high-quality alternatives from Austrian and German manufacturers. In our mountain restaurants, for example, we offer glacier chocolate from the company Haag (Landeck), which simply tastes irresistibly good.

We practise careful sorting of waste.
We have set up a waste separation system for our guests and employees in our mountain inns. Everyone can help to avoid waste on the mountain and separate it correctly.

We use Austrian cleaning products.
We use cleaning agents from the Austrian company Hollu to keep our mountain restaurants sparkling clean.

Fresh and homemade every day

The restaurants on the Kaunertal Glacier source many of the ingredients for their dishes from local farmers, bakers and butchers. The food is cooked with love according to traditional recipes and freshly prepared for you every day.

Baked with love

We are also proud of our cakes and pastries. Everything is homemade and served fresh on our cake buffet. A slice of cake, shortbread, muffins and more – enjoy your favourite dessert with a good cup of cappuccino.

We are nearly self-sufficient

Water and a canal system are needed to run a catering business at this altitude. The water does not come from the municipal water supply as usual, but from a deep well at 2,750 metres, which pumps the water from inside the mountain. The waste water is not drained through a local canal system, but is treated in our own fully biological sewage treatment plant. The solar system on the south front of the building heats 1/3 of the annual hot water requirement.
