Culinary delights and tradition: traditional South Tyrolean Cuisine & Mediterranean Specialties

Body and soul in the Hotel Torre Gschwendt in Gsies

We try to support environmentally-friendly leisure time activities by informing our guests about the options in the surroundings. Sustainable tourism is also about activities that have a low impact on the environment: culture, hiking, cycling, cross-country skiing and other adventures in an unspoiled nature.

In order to preserve the surroundings and our valuable nature also for later generations, we use tasty products from local producers whenever possible. A short transport route to the hotel, the fresh mountain air, and the personal attention of farmers' to their products make every meal an unmistakable experience for your palate.

The altitude and the difference in temperatures in our area are the reason for a slower, yet more intensive development of aromas and taste in the food. This is a difference you can taste – find out for yourself! The many small businesses from which we purchase our food are not always able to deliver the amount we would require. We therefore ask for your understanding if we sometimes have to purchase food from wholesale suppliers.

The culinary offer of our cuisine

The breakfast awaits you with a vast selection of freshly baked bread, cold meat slices, yoghurt and fresh milk, various cereals and cornflakes, jams, honey and butter, home-made cake, fruit and freshly squeezed juices. We also serve fresh egg dishes made to order.
