Xund & guat

Xund & guat – Good Tyrolean quality from the very region of the Pitztal: We make a conscious effort to use regional and seasonal products in all our dishes.

Culinary delights with expansive views on THE HIGHEST OF TIROL

It’s the little things that can change how we think and act. Being operators of mountain restaurants at alpine heights, we do our bit to ensure a mindful use of the available resources:

  • Cooperation with Pitztal Regional
    We consciously decided against alpine hut classics and in favour of regional delicacies. The Pitztal Burger is a joint product with Pitztal Regional. The bread for the burger was developed especially by the Schranz bakery while the meat comes 100% from the valley.
  • Purchase of regional products from farmers in the Pitztal region and Tyrol
    There are no long journeys for the ingredients we use in our dishes: we buy from farmers in the Pitztal and Tyrol. We prefer less, but honest quality from the region.
  • Adaptation of our technology to altitude
    The extreme altitude at 3440 metres means that different conditions prevail when we are preparing dishes than in the valley. Coffee machines, taps or even pastry behave differently due to the pressure level. The technology is constantly adapted to the conditions so that enjoyment and quality do not have to suffer as a result.
  • Bamboo is the new plastic
    Plastic is gradually disappearing from our restaurants. Bamboo is used – especially when we host events.
  • Kissed by the sun or electrically powered
    We are able to generate 1/3 of the electricity ourselves thanks to our photovoltaic system on the Pitztal Glacier. We are out and about in the ski resort with our e-skidoo. You can even make a contribution to sustainability: take the free ski shuttle or charge your e-car at the valley station of the Gletscherexpress.
  • Rubbish separation
    Unfortunately, we can’t always take what we think is self-evident for granted. The separation of rubbish is a priority in all our facilities. We would also kindly ask that you throw your rubbish into the bins provided or take it back down to the valley with you.

IT’S NOT ONLY ABOUT THE FAR-REACHING VIEWS OF OVER FIFTY THREE-THOUSAND METRE PEAKS ON THE HIGHEST OF TIROL – WE ARE ALREADY THINKING ONE STEP AHEAD.

Our mission: xund & guat

The bread, the meat or even the cheese: Our dishes are prepared using regional ingredients. In the process, our catering team also makes sure that seasonal dishes are available from the surrounding region. This results in a small but exquisite menu. Xund & guat is not neglected in the process.
