Markus Hettegger and his team of chefs at the Vitalhotel Tauernhof conjure up delicious Austrian and international dishes with a wealth of creative ideas and attention to detail, going under the motto “creative life cuisine in a Grossarl way”.
At the end of a fun-packed day on holiday, come and be amazed at the creativity and taste sensations served up in the cosy atmosphere of our restaurant, accompanied by a glass of fine wine or a good beer.
Your well-being is important to us, and we therefore take great care in our choice of ingredients, paying attention in particular to local produce that is fresh and of top quality. We use mainly local ingredients in preparing our meals, whether they be Austrian delicacies or international treats. The venison and beef come from the Grossarltal region, and our honey, cheese, and milk come on a daily basis fresh from local farmers. Bakery items are similarly from Austrian suppliers.
- Our venison comes from our own huntsman and estate manager, Dr. Draxler. Our lamb also comes directly from the Grossarltal region.
- Our Grossarl Alpine cheese and our Alpine butter come from the Rohrmoser family at the Loosbühelalm
- Our Grossarl sour cheese, cream cheese, yoghurt, and curd cheese comes from the Gruber family at the Schiedsteinhof
We provide a comprehensive breakfast buffet to give you the perfect start to the day at the Tauernhof.
Home-made jam and Inhögbauer forest blossom honey sweeten your morning. Fresh, crispy bread straight from the local baker, fresh Alpine butter and tasty Alpine cheese from the Loosbühelalm, cream cheese and yoghurt from the Schiedsteinbauer farm, and sausage specialities from the gourmet region of Grossarltal; all of this of course makes an appearance at our life buffet!
After your various activities in the Grossarltal region, from 15:00 to 16:30 in the afternoon each day we provide a “life snack” in the restaurant.
Come and be amazed: sometimes there are delicious bacon, ham, and cheese specialities, whilst on other days then may be gorgeous home-made pastries on offer.
Our gourmet evening meal gives you the choice between Austrian specialities and lighter, international healthy cuisine.
Our salad bar has fresh, healthy salad options each day. Help yourself to items from the cheese board too.
Once a week we invite you to our “sweet tooth” dessert buffet, and in summer there is also a barbecue or farmer’s buffet once a week.
Guests with coeliac disease or fructose or lactose intolerances can still dine deliciously here with no problem. If notified in advance, we will happily agree on a menu plan with you. Here at the Vitalhotel Tauernhof you are perfectly catered for if you happen to need special dietary options; you can then happily relax and enjoy your holiday in the Grossarltal region to the full.
In 2015, the Vitalhotel Tauernhof won a gourmet award as a “Genusswirt”, a title that we are very proud of.
All restaurants of this type in Austria’s gourmet region have specialised in preparing unique, top quality culinary creations using the best local ingredients, quite simply because items that are seasonal, local, and fresh simply taste better.
“At the Vitalhotel Tauernhof, we live and breathe Austrian hospitality, and use local and seasonal produce, and do so on a daily basis.”
