Parents fell in love with the excellent food and panoramic view. The Gipfelhaus is run by the family Skorianz. Focus of the kitchen is on regional and seasonal food. Many products are from their own cultivation . You will taste it immediately. Very delicious are for example the home-made pasta specialties with different fillings or the freshly baked strudel!
