Your palate is in for a real treat!

For your vitamin boost or a cool sundowner, we recommend a visit to our Beach Bar or Wake Café.

River Haus Bar & Grill or Lakeside Restaurant?

Do you prefer a combination of modern steampunk style and industrial design or do you prefer more natural scenery with our beautiful lake views? Do you want scrumptious steaks from the barbecue and smoked Austrian meat specialities or do you fancy burgers, pasta, and pizza? We’re sorry to make the decision difficult for you. Our recommendation: just try out both. We can’t decide either which of our restaurants is the better choice, as both the River Haus Bar & Grill and our Lakeside Restaurant have the best flavours in the Ötztal. Some places just seem to have good food woven into their DNA.
