Waidwerk’s cuisine

Waidwerk is the gourmet restaurant of the Rottner family business, where chef Valentin Rottner leads the kitchen as a creative chef.  The young chef’s cuisine is precise, his dishes authentic and pure. In addition to the down-to-earth cooking of his father Stefan Rottner, Valentin offers a more contemporary take on the dishes. There are four- and six-course menus available, each featuring regional and seasonal products. Good to know: vegetarian and vegan options are available upon request. Each dish can be perfectly paired with an excellent glass of wine, carefully selected by sommelier Claudia.
