Description: Let us spoil you with culinary delights. Because at our gourmet restaurant, everything revolves around you. Our multiple award-winning chef Gerhard Wieser, holder of two Michelin Stars, and our restaurant manager Simon Oberhofer's service team, likewise award-winning, are looking forward to welcoming you to our South Tyrolean gourmet restaurant "Trenkerstube", named after the famous screen actor and mountaineer Luis Trenker. Chef Gerhard Wieser's magical culinary creations will take you on a journey through the world of alpine-Mediterranean cuisine. The basis of his art are fresh, natural ingredients selected personally by our chef. Many of these products come from this region. But in some cases Gerhard Wieser also selects produce from elsewhere. In so doing he always succeeds in orchestrating all the different regional influences and aromas in harmonious ways, optimising and refining them by applying innovative and advanced cooking methods. The result is a wealth of flavours and ingredients culminating in unforgettable culinary experiences. Click here to find out more about Gerhard Wieser's culinary philosophy. You will find the Trenkerstube service personnel to be open, friendly, easy-going yet professional and sophisticated. Wine lovers will appreciate the "Castel Vinothek", our well-stocked wine cellar which allows them to choose from over 500 top wines, mainly but by no means exclusively from Italian regions. A sommelier will be available to assist you. Look forward to an extraordinary journey into the world of fine cuisine, and enjoy first-rate culinary pleasures.

Both my wife and i would be at a loss to name a better dining experience than the one we had here. We ordered the prix fixe chef's menu, and we were treated to a three hour feast of local cuisine with some modern twists, all paired with excellent local wines. The ambiance was charming and intimate, the service was flawless, and the restaurant is set on the top of a hill with stunning views. On top of it all, given the lavish assortment of food and wine that we had, it wasn't even that expensive for its class. I highly recommend it for a special occasion.

Sudtirol has a tradition of high quality food. Here you will find a mixture of local specialties, Northern Alpes countries influenced dishes and Italian cuisine. There are many ways to enjoy this. Whether a lunch in an outback mountain refuge during a hiking trip, a meal in one of the many ‘Gasthofes’ and small restaurants or a dinner in one of the renowned culinary temples, it’s nearly always an enjoyment.
And certainly do not forget about the outstanding Sudtirolean wines.

We visited Sudtirol many times and each time we plan for a special indulging event on top of all the good this country already has to offer.
This year for the second time this special indulge event consisted of a dinner at the Trenkerstube.
And same as the first time (2011) I must admit this is amongst the absolute culinary top in Sudtirol.
We had the menu created for the 10th anniversary of the Trenkerstube and every single dish was not only a feast for the eyes but also delicious.
The accompanying wines were perfectly chosen by sommelier Sascha.
Also worth mentioning, for such a high-quality restaurant the wines on the extensive wine list are priced very reasonably.
The entire staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is very cozy.
Reason enough to plan for a next visit.
Thanks to all who contributed to this perfect dinner!

We celebrate my father's 75th birthday at Trenkerstube Restaurant in Hotel Castel last May. The settings are very nice and the staff is very professional. Food was excellent and everyone in our party was pleased from start to finish. They were very attentive to every detail and made sure my family had a wonderful and unforgettable experience in Tirolo.
