"Ein top Team ist ein Segen in der Küche! Ich weiß es sehr zu schätzen, dass ich mit solch einem zusammenarbeiten darf." – Chefkoch Christian Weis
Food & drink
Enjoy the taste of Tyrol
There are many different ways to experience remarkable moments. At the end of a long day out and about in the mountains, what better way to relax than with a hearty meal? Treat yourself to the luxury of a five-course dinner with friends or family at the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl and take a time out from the stress of daily life to simply enjoy the moment.
Our creative team of chefs looks forward to taking you on a culinary journey of discovery full of delicious highlights. We use seasonal produce sourced from the region in our à-la-carte restaurant. Enjoy luxury half-board or, alternatively, try something a little different with a fondue evening or a meal in the mountains at the Zirbenalm.
Voucher for restaurant or fondue
Guests who wish to dine in our à la carte restaurant or enjoy a cheesy fondue can cancel their half-board and receive a €20 voucher in exchange. If possible, please let us know one day in advance or, at the latest, after breakfast on the same day.
The E&G cooking philosophy
Head chef Christian Weis is a "traditional chef" in the true sense of the word. That means he has an appreciation of Austrian classics and regional delicacies but at the same time is always on the lookout for new trends which can be integrated into the hotel's cooking concept.
Christian's philosophy combines fresh, seasonal produce with creative cooking techniques aimed at preserving the nutrients and goodness we are blessed with here in the Ötztal Valley. "I love steak, for example," he says. "There are lots of fancy methods of preparing it these days, but if the meat is of the highest quality then there is no need to over-complicate things."

"Ganz einfache Hausmannskost wie Würstelgulasch oder Schnitzelsemmel."
Welche Bedeutung hat ein eingespieltes Küchenteam?
"Gute Mitarbeiter sind das wichtigste Kapital eines Hotels. Ich versuche, jeden Jungkoch so zu behandeln, wie ich es selbst von meinem Vorgesetzten gerne hätte."
Die größte Freude im Edelweiss & Gurgl?
"Wenn Gäste nach einem Essen bei uns sagen: Da kommen wir fix wieder!"

Mountain hut next to the pistes
