Local Produce: the best tastes and the best for your health

Produced in the region, slowly matured and freshly picked direct from the field: these are the ingredients from which our chef de cuisine at the Hotel Alpenkönig and in the hotel’s restaurant conjures his delights.


Our local products taste delicious and are also an extremely healthy option because they contain many nutrients and vitamins. Our chef Sascha Bulander finds inspiration in these authentic ingredients which fire his imagination and have prompted him to create a range of exquisite feasts for the palate – and for the senses.


What appears on the plate at the Hotel Alpenkönig and in the restaurant Esslust is far more than just a visual treat.

The real secret of our delicious cuisine? Fresh ingredients and a kitchen team whose aim is to satisfy the soul and the palate of gourmet diners.
