The Best Restaurants In South Tyrol You Have To Try

The Rauch Hütte is a typical mountain hut in the middle of the Alpe Di Siusi valley, offering an incredible view over the mountains. It’s the perfect place to have lunch after one of the many hikes that you can do in this area.

Enjoy the typical South Tyrolean cuisine, Mediterranean food or local meats from the grill. All of the food served here is homemade and regional. The Rauch Hütte has been run by the same family for years and now its 4th generation holds down the forth.
Gostner Schwaige – Alpe Di Siusi
Gostner Schwaige has to be my favourite restaurant in the entire Seiser Alm region! The term Schwaige is used to indicate a mountain hut that is completely self sufficient and only serves produces that are homemade. Well this is definitely the case here and Gostner Schwaige is proudly run by the Mulsner family.
On their farm Aussergost you’ll find a big garden filled with flowers, herbs, trees and shrubs. Everything you can think of will be turned into juice, jam, tea, chutney and many more. So get ready to enjoy delicious self-created dishes with handpicked edible flowers such as a flower salad or hay flower soup!
AlpiNN – Kronplatz
AlpiNN restaurant is one of the most impressive restaurants in South Tyrol when it comes to location. Perched on top of a mountain cliff in Kronplatz you will definitely have lunch with a view!
I can tell you that eating at AlpiNN is a true experience but make sure that when you make a reservation you ask for a table at the window. This way you’ll see the incredible 360° views and some random paragliders passing by.
After lunch make sure to stop by LUMEN, a beautiful and modern museum about mountain photography.
Tilia – Dobbiaco
If you’re visiting the area around Lago di Braies or the Tre Cime National Park you have to have lunch or dinner at Tilia! Chris Oberhammer is the chef behind this amazing restaurant where a home-inspired cuisine places special emphasis on the products, flavours and colours of the region.
And if you really want to have a unique experience you can try out their new concept MONS. A stylish and modern day picnic that is mouth watering delicious. You can book your requested picnic online and simply pick up your basket/backpack at the restaurant.
The options for where you can enjoy your picnic are endless but lake Dobbiaco is pretty close and a beautiful place to sit down and relax.
