Gartenhotel Crystal, our 4-star hotel offers natural Zillertal cuisine - Gartenhotel Crystal

Culinary World

Sit down to the abundance of Mother Nature.

American author Scott Cunningham saw food as magic, its power over us beyond any kind of doubt. This holds true especially when it is prepared with herbs, flowers and fruit from your own garden.

Whatever seasonal delicacies our abundant Crystal Garden may produce, our head chef, Reinhard, is able to transform into wonderful specialties. Sparkling elderberry wine, lilac syrup, fried zucchini blossoms, borage, geraniums, marigold, violets and more, all belong to the standard repertoire of his natural Zillertal cuisine. He is of the opinion that flowers give chefs the opportunity to develop their creativity, and to experiment with flavor directions and raw ingredients, very much in keeping with the fresh dishes of modern, light cuisine.

A philosophy which, here with us, accompanies you throughout the day.

True to the motto "A good day begins with a better breakfast", the choice is all yours: naturally, if you wish, you can withdraw to the stylish ambiance of your own room and enjoy breakfast in bed. But you also have the option of picking and choosing from our lavish, variety-filled breakfast buffet. Crispily fresh croissants, muffins, pastries, fruit, fresh-pressed orange juice, breakfast rolls, full-flavored whole-grain bread, in short: everything your heart could possibly desire.

Enjoy life to the full. Whenever possible, in a beautiful setting. The evening greets you with a wonderful atmosphere, lovingly set tables and carefully selected recipe ideas. Whether traditional or modern cuisine, Austrian or international, treat yourself to a 5-course dinner selection at our new Restaurant Veranda, all the while soaking in the breathtaking panoramic views. If like to sample a little bit of this and that, you are sure to enjoy our once-weekly Tyrolean Buffet or a Mediterranean Buffet.

Zillertal natural cuisine...

...Tradition and innovation for natural enjoyment.

Inspired by the abundance and variety of the hotel's garden, our head chef Reinhard Marschall developed his own line of kitchen products. It all began with a series of syrups. Dandelion leaves, lilac blossoms, cowslip, roses, and lavender were refined with sugar or preserved in vinegar. Then came jam, fruit pie, and vegetable specialties.

With Zillertal natural cuisine, he succeeded in accomplishing the impossible. Taste, enjoyment, and wholesomeness are no longer contradictions and thus correspond to the motto: health, simplicity, and sophistication.
