The ALPIANA: a gourmet hotel

Experience culinary delights

“No pleasure is transient, for the mark it leaves is lasting.” (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Regional ingredients and seasonal dishes: at ALPIANA, our meals are inspired by the bounty of the season and the surrounding landscape. The best recipes from the Meran holiday region are constantly reimagined, made with love and served with pride.

Our gourmet restaurant ALPIANUM epitomises the South Tyrolean passion for food, showcasing the culinary fusion of two cultures. Vegan options have also long since found their way onto the ALPIANUM’s menu and are very popular with our guests. Our commitment to homemade dishes is paramount. “Only homemade food tastes both authentic and sincere,” is the steadfast belief held at the ALPIANUM.

Culinary highlights at ALPIANA – green luxury

  • The ALPIANUM Restaurant – South Tyrolean & Mediterranean dishes, vegetarian and vegan options in an airy ambience
  • Varied weekly themed nights – for an unforgettable dining experience
  • Enjoy meals amidst nature and beneath the stars (during summer) – on a terrace designed in wood and glass.
  • ALPIANA Bistro – á la carte treats to supplement our gourmet board

Cooking as a calling

“It’s about pushing the boundaries of attention to detail. Mastering the art of flavour combinations to create exquisite culinary unions,” states head chef Arnold Nussbaumer. He and his team of ten believe in delivering exceptional culinary experiences at every meal, from breakfast to dessert.

“Cooking is more than just a passion for me; it’s a calling,” says Arnold Nussbaumer. However, he is aware that modern cooking carries with it a sense of responsibility. At ALPIANA – green luxury, a spirit of sustainability permeates even into the kitchen: most ingredients are sourced from local vendors, and there is a growing emphasis on incorporating fair trade products.

The gourmet experience - savour the day

At ALPIANA, our gourmet board guarantees delicious experiences throughout every day of your stay. After all, the essence of a holiday centred on gourmet bliss is culinary excellence with both freedom and flexibility: from an exquisite and varied breakfast buffet and a live-cooking lunch to an afternoon cake buffet and the culmination of a refined dinner, our motto remains, “Make way for flavour!”

Regional and homemade - the joy of healthy eating

Regionality, seasonality and quality are the cornerstones of the ALPIANA’s kitchen philosophy. “South Tyrol is blessed with nature’s bounty,” says head chef Arnold Nussbaumer. The ALPIANA culinary team honours this bounty by exclusively utilising local ingredients to create particularly flavourful dishes.

Bar & Lounge - for socialising or solitude

Engage in conversation, lose yourself in a book, listen to music or simply admire the view. Perhaps accompanied by a glass of wine? That’s leisure at its finest. Yet the hotel bar is also a vibrant hub for social gatherings! Guests convene here for pre-dinner aperitifs and return to conclude their night with an array of colourful cocktails or exquisite beverages, all thoughtfully crafted and suggested by Antonia and her team.
