Delicious omelette with meadow herbs

Born in 1982, he is young and ambitious. He cooks with a confident dignity. He has countless culinary accomplishments at home and abroad under his belt, and has won a series of international awards, including the Gold Medal in the 2003 World Skills Competition in St. Gallen (CH) and the Silver Medal a year later at the Culinary Olympics in Erfurt (D). Now, Hannes Pignater has accepted his next challenge: creating culinary masterpieces in the unique Alpine setting of the ADLER Mountain Lodge. His style is creative and authentic at the same time, with a focus on quality produce from South Tyrol – sourced directly from committed farmers – and making as much as possible himself.

Hannes Pignater combines an interest in things new with a reliance on a culinary tradition that has shaped this mountain farmland for centuries. And why does Hannes Pignater and his young motivated team prefer to make use of local produce? His answer is simple: “To take everyday ingredients and create something special.”
Start your day with a delightful Alpine breakfast as your good morning adventure – with fresh local specialities supplied largely from local farms. At lunch, enjoy the lovely vistas from the sun terrace along with light and revitalizing midday snacks or à la carte selections from South Tyrol. In the afternoon, a typical South Tyrolean platter awaits, and in the evening we will spoil you in the Panorama Restaurant with the culinary pleasures of our regional cuisine. Peaks of pleasure for the palate!
