Engel & Völkers Tyrol presents the 10 most beautiful restaurants with mountain views in Tyrol

Tyrol is renowned for its superb culinary scene, which caters to all tastes. Engel & Völkers’ real estate experts have tested and would like to recommend the 10 most stunning restaurants with a view. Excellent cuisine and breathtaking mountain panoramas await you high above the ground.

1. The BichlAlm, Kitzbühel—combining tradition and modernity

The BichlAlm

 is perched high above Kitzbühel in the gentle southern mountains. This mountain inn stands out for its architecture, which skilfully combines

tradition and modernity

. You can enjoy a unique view of the Kitzbühel Alps, away from the hustle and bustle. As the BichlAlm is located at a distance from the busy ski slopes and hiking routes, it is an insider's favourite. The father-son duo, Nikolaus snr. and Nikolaus jnr. Gasteiger, spoil you with traditional Tyrolean cuisine, which they interpret in a new and modern way. A great deal of emphasis is placed on regional produce.

Our recommendation: bacon and salmon are smoked in the on-site smokehouse—be sure to try them!

2. Hochkitzbühel by Tomschy, Kitzbühel—excellent cuisine, outstanding wines, and unforgettable parties

Hochkitzbühel by Tomschy

is a counterpart to the tranquil BichlAlm. Situated at the top of the

Hahnenkamm lift

, this place-to-be is not only known for its excellent cuisine and outstanding wines, but also for its parties. Those who have seen the sun set behind the Hahnenkamm will remember the magnificent view forever. You can look out over the

whole of Kitzbühel

from the viewing platform—and dance along to the beat of a star DJ.

Our recommendation: make sure you make a reservation—tables are very popular at Hochkitzbühel.

3. Maierl Alm, Kirchberg—tasty highs and cool parties with legendary views

Let's remain in party mode, although the

Maierl Alm

is not just renowned for its great DJs and fun get-togethers. Here, you can dine with tradition. The first alpine inn was built on the "Maierl" in 1932 and it has been welcoming guests from all over the world ever since. From the sunny terrace, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Großer Rettenstein, Kirchberg, and the Wilder Kaiser.

Alongside classic Tyrolean cuisine, you can also find exciting haute cuisine creations on the menu, combining completely new yet familiar flavours that result in tasty delights.

4. Bergisel Sky, Innsbruck—dine at dizzying heights in the ski jump tower

Where ski jumpers usually glide down the Bergisel ski jump, you can experience culinary delights at dizzying heights. Bergisel SKY is unparalleled in Innsbruck and way beyond. The restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling glass fronts in the Bergisel ski jump tower entice you to linger and enjoy the views. The ski jump stadium was designed by star architect Zaha Hadid, who passed away in 2006, and was awarded the Austrian Architecture Prize in 2002. Every year at the beginning of January, the Bergisel ski jump is part of the Four Hills Tournament. In summer, the stadium’s mat facility is often used for jump training, so there is a lot to discover.

5. Gschösswandhaus, Mayrhofen—culinary delights surrounded by the Zillertal mountains

Is it the panorama, the fresh air, the wonderful sun terrace, or the creations by the chefs Gerhard and Michael that make the


a very special place? We encourage you to enjoy this experience and decide for yourself. Our number 5, the Gschösswandhaus on the Penken (1,800 metres above sea level) is truly a restaurant to feel at ease in. Nestled in the Zillertal mountains, you cannot get enough of the panoramic views. Luckily there is lots of space on the terrace.

Our recommendation: the spinach dumplings are fabulous—an insiders' tip, so you should definitely try them!

6. Angerer Alm, St. Johann—a different type of luxury with a huge selection of wines

You are close to the clouds and far away from the hustle and bustle at the

Angerer Alm

 in St. Johann. The mountain inn is located on the Kitzbüheler Horn—where incredible panoramas await you, the clocks tick a little differently, and a pinch of nostalgia resonates in every breeze. The alpine hut has experienced a lot in its 250 years of history. Luxury is defined a little differently at the Angerer Alm. It is not the material things that count, but the experiences.

The wine selection is particularly impressive: up to 600 bottles from over 400 wineries.

7. Stöttlalm, Mieming—forget time whilst admiring the spectacle of the Mieminger Plateau

The Stöttlalm in Mieming also possesses rustic beauty. Surrounded by nature, the alpine hut is located on the shores of an idyllic mountain lake. You soon forget about time whilst gazing at the picturesque view of the Mieminger Plateau and the entire Inn Valley. Be sure to make time to indulge in the culinary delights, though. The chef places great emphasis on the quality and regionality of the products, which is why almost all food is sourced from regional suppliers and partners.

8. Restaurant Lichtblick, Innsbruck—enjoy regional and seasonal food, high above the rooftops of Innsbruck

High above the rooftops of Innsbruck, Lichtblick welcomes you to drink coffee, have a business lunch, or enjoy an exquisite dinner in a relaxed, urban setting. In addition to the unique view over Innsbruck, the focus is on enjoyment. The chef cooks regionally and seasonally out of conviction, creates new delicacies for you every day, and delights you with a mixture of regionality and exclusivity.

9. Café 3440, Pitztal—enjoy the highest coffee in Austria

- Tirols höchste Aussicht

Austria's highest coffee house

—the name says it all. From its suspended terrace at 3,440 metres above sea level,

Café 3440

 boasts fascinating views. Under the management of landlord Sepp, Austria's highest coffee house, which is surrounded by more than 50 three-thousand-metre peaks, is a highlight in the truest sense of the word. Marvel at the unique alpine panorama over a cup of coffee. You can also see Tyrol's highest mountain from here: the Wildspitze standing at

3,774 metres


Our recommendation: start the day by taking in this unforgettable panorama over breakfast.

10. ICE Q, Sölden—gourmet cuisine with a James Bond feel

The best is always saved until last—but you should decide for yourself. We end our culinary journey at

Ice Q

 in Sölden. At 3,048 metres above sea level and surrounded by three-thousand-metre peaks, you will be enchanted by chef Klaus Holzer and his team. This futuristic restaurant’s spectacular location, where

James Bond Spectre was filmed

, was awarded two toques by the 2023 Gault Millau Guide.

Our recommendation: reserve a "Chef's Table" and you are guaranteed a unique view.
