Culinary delights

Maximum quality & many years of experience: cooking for passion

A chef who learned the trade from the ground up, with incredible enthusiasm and inexhaustible passion. A refined palate ready to experiment with aromas and different herbs: these are the features that best describe the host of the guesthouse and the professional chef, Erich Pircher, who has managed the kitchen of Hotel Sonnegg for many years.


Fresh products mainly from the region and a garden with the most diverse spices and herbs outside our door ensure the high quality of the food and offer our guests extraordinary culinary experiences every day.

Barbecue on the terraceDessert

Our gourmet half-board includes:

  • A rich buffet breakfast with products of the region from 7:30 to 10:00 a.m. (or earlier if requested) with homemade organic apple juice, elderberry juice and other high quality juices as well as a vast assortment of bread of all types freshly baked by the town’s baker.
  • A luscious 4-course dinner in the evening with the possibility of choosing among various dishes – also suitable for vegetarians. A fish menu is offered twice a week.
  • You can also take advantage of the rich salad buffet five times a week. This buffet is made up of 8 salads that are always fresh, ricotta cheese and grilled vegetables to be dressed with our various condiments and refined vinaigrettes.
  • Once a week we offer a “Bella Italia” buffet with various Italian cold plates, minestrone with peas and boiled potatoes.
  • Starting in May we hold an outdoor barbeque once a week on our terrace. The barbeque is accompanied by a buffet of salads, fresh fruit and a “chocolate fountain”.
  • There is an exquisite 5-course gala dinner on Sundays (without the salad buffet).
  • In October, every week we host a «törggele» evening (with new wine and roasted chestnuts)
