Alpin’s cuisine

On Alpin’s menu, you’ll quickly spot one of the chefs’ signature dishes: Achensee Merino Lamb. But the kitchen also offers other beautiful gourmet dishes. Such as fish fresh out of the lake, and squab with goose liver or winter cod. If you prefer a meat-free dinner: don’t fret. The hotel restaurant offers a multi-course vegetarian menu and various plant-based dishes, created by chefs Armin & Alexander Gründler.
