Either we prepare it for you or you fill your lunchbox by yourself at our breakfast buffet – however you prefer best.


In our generously designed restaurant, you will still be spoiled with delicacies from our chef. Many of our guests come to us because they simply love our food. Of course, we will continue to offer lovingly cooked food of the highest quality.

Since July 1, 2021 there is no longer a mask requirement in Austria, of course you can wear your mask for a more comfortable feeling.
