Food in the chalet

A pantry filled with delicacies

Along with a fully-equipped kitchen, each chalet has a stocked food pantry. This sideboard from the old days is a Zillertal original. After careful and loving renovation, it now shines like new: it is filled to the brim with tasty foods.

Enjoy fresh, crisp farmhouse bread, hill farm butter, milk, eggs, bacon, cheese, and sausage from regional farms as well as a selection of homemade jams and forest honey from our hunting area, the Wildgerlostal.

Do you like to have a cup of coffee in the afternoon? Then it's a good thing that we serve homemade cake and strudel fresh from the oven every other day in the chalet. Of course, wine lovers will also get their money's worth, too: each chalet has its own wine rack with exquisite wines from Austria and abroad. These wines are charged separately.


The first rays of sunlight delicately peep out over the mountain peaks. While you still linger in the world of dreams, our breakfast roll delivery service will provide you with daily fresh bread and pastries. Whether fresh whole-grain rolls or a delicious croissant, we will customize it to your wishes.

Do you prefer tea or coffee? For your breakfast, we have Italian espresso right from the machine, a classic filter coffee maker, as well as an assortment of hand-picked tea varieties. The choice is up to you!

Book a Cook

The gourmet service for connoisseurs

If you prefer not to cook for yourself, have us do the cooking for you! Lukas’ Gourmet Service makes it possible. Whether lunch or dinner for 2 or more people, you can have our gourmet chef, Lukas, give you a real culinary treat in your private chalet! Our head chef is young and particularly loves wild game.

Lukas Mölk always wanted to become a chef. Because of the silence. Because of the magical sense of peace that develops shortly after that very first bite.

The sensuous moment when the flavor unfolds and a gentle smile magically appears in the corner of the guest’s mouth. And the palate can barely comprehend how happy it is. 

The quality of his products and the meals he prepares is sensationally good! And the wild game harvested from our own hunting grounds, he marinates with special devotion. You will notice it yourself. By the silence…

You can call the conciereg for details of his different seasonal menus and (if you do so well enough in advance) go ahead and order them.
