ALPINE CUISINE - culinary art at the wellness hotel Ritzenhof Saalfelden | Leogang

The gourmet half board at the RITZENHOF – Hotel und SPA am See

Balanced nutrition is key to achieving physical and emotional wellbeing, and the effects of the seasons and times of day are important issues also considered in the ALPINE HOLISTIC® concept. It has been said that body, mind and spirit unite in culinary delights – and we have taken this to mean that the RITZENHOF hotel und SPA am See’s cuisine should be conducive to wellbeing, health and happiness.

Start the day with our vitality breakfast buffet, hot food is also available to order. In the afternoon there is a choice of soup, salad and cake . Round off the day with a five-course gourmet dinner: choose between meat, fish and a vegetarian main-course options. We are always happy to meet our guests’ special nutritional requirements and preferences.

Passion and craftsmanship

The catering team at Ritzenhof loves its job.
It is their passion for the profession, and appreciation of nature and its products, that allow them to serve culinary highlights every day.

Skills have been learned from scratch, some of the team have already been awarded 'stars' and 'chef's hats' during their careers. Training in nutrition and a knowledge of food intolerances, and how to deal with them, are a standard part of the professional approach at Ritzenhof.

Our team are motivated by the challenge of making every dish the most enjoyable that it can be.

»Kitchen staff at the Ritzenhof are committed to high-value nutrition. We make use of our produce when it is fully ripe and at its best. This means produce is either served directly at the table, or conserved in accordance with well-proven traditions, e.g. in salt, as pesto, bottled or in our own smoke-house.«
