Klemens Schraml

As a young Austrian chef, Klemens Schraml started out by traveling the globe. While doing so, he learned and cooked at some of the best restaurants in Europe. Just before his worldwide journey ended, he received a Michelin star in Zermatt, Switzerland as recognition for his phenomenal cooking skills. In 2018 Schraml returned to his hometown, the rural Großraming. Here, he transformed his parents’ restaurant into what Rau is now: a critically acclaimed fine-dining spot, with innovation and creativity at its heart. The restaurant is beautifully located at the remote Northern Limestone Alps, right on the edge of Austria's renowned Kalpaken National Park.
