Enjoy the legacy of good food

From the excursion destinations we recommend to the places our kitchen ingredients come from, the Grandhotel Giessbach is shaped by the local region and honours this heritage with great respect. Many farmers and local producers contribute to the well-being of the hotel guests with their produce. This deeply rooted connection with the land bears the hallmark of Franz Weber and constitutes one of the most subtle forms of environmental protection there is.

Culinary philosophy

Culinary delights and guest well-being are of course of paramount importance to the Giessbach restaurants. We would like to see all guests enjoying both, far removed from the strains of everyday life. We are guided by the conviction that this happens most successfully when we produce as much as we can ourselves. We cook in harmony with the seasons and with nature. It is well known that freshly harvested products simply taste the best. So, we pick herbs from our own kitchen garden; as far as possible, we grow vegetables in our own fields, and sometimes in our historical greenhouses. Even our honey comes from Giessbach bees. We source our wines exclusively from Europe and fetch our water from our very own spring.

<<Do not wait to eat and drink, for the world we are leaving is like a banquet.>>
