our recommendations

We know Lech like the back of our hands. Since a huge selection of local businesses are owned and run by friends and relations of ours, we are in a unique position to offer our guests individualised insider tips to suit every occasion and taste. Here in the Knappaboda we offer breakfast and an afternoon snack. For dinner you are spoilt for choice: Lech's vast selection of culinary establishments is at your fingertips.

Gasthaus Älpele

Gasthaus Älpele

This inn is run by our son Franz-Josef. In the outstanding and genuinely impressive 300 year-old "Cia Hus", situated in the heart of the Zuger valley, you can enjoy traditional no frills cuisine, lovingly prepared from locally sourced quality ingredients.

s’Achtele Restaurant

s’Achtele Restaurant

The s’Achtele Restaurant, run by Gertrud's sister Gitti together with Heinz and Stephanie, is located in the Pension Stäfeli in Zug. Here, guided by the motto "Traditional meets Modern", Andreas Rumpf has created a selection of fresh innovative dishes served in a traditionally congenial atmosphere.

The Austrian cuisine is renowned far beyond the national boundaries, so it will come as no surprise that here too - alongside international delicacies - regional specialities feature on the menu. It's also worth mentioning that Heinz was nominated Sommelier of the Year 2017 by the Good Inns Guide.

s’Allerlei Cafe and General Store

s’Allerlei Cafe and General Store

The s’Allerlei is also run by Gitti and her husband Heinz. It's a small cafe and general store where you can also find a selection of gifts, souvenirs and Austrian delicacies to take back home with you. Enjoy some quality time over coffee and cakes - that makes shopping even more fun!

Baristro

Baristro

Run by Christian, the oldest son of Rudi (Gertrud's brother), the Baristro offers superlative smoothies and muffins, plus cocktails in the evenings. The slightly alternative coffee bar, located in the heart of Lech. Open all day.

Gasthof Rote Wand

Gasthof Rote Wand

This inn is Gertrud's family home, and is run by her brother Joschi and his wife Natascha. The Rote Wand is famous for its legendary fondues, which we are always delighted to recommend. Come and spend a congenial evening in the Roten Wand's cosy parlour.

Schualhus Jausestuba and Chef's Table

Schualhus Jausestuba and Chef's Table

A cheery snack bar during the daytime becomes a Chef's Table at night. This restaurant is also run by Joschi and Natascha, and belongs to the Roten Wand. During the day the Jausestuba offers all kinds of tasty snacks, both sweet and savoury, as well as homemade lemonade. In the evening the highly accredited chef Manuel Grabner invites you to the Chef’s Table, where he will tempt you with a 12-15 course speciality menu made from predominantly locally sourced produce. A maximum of 16 places are distributed around the kitchen, from where you can watch the team of cooks as they prepare your meal.

Wood, Iron and Putter

Holz, Eisen und Butter (“Wood, Iron & Putter”)

Located right next to the new golf course, this striking round wooden building is not hard to find. For hungry - and thirsty! - hikers, strollers wanting a treat or anybody simply in search of a good meal, the inn on the golf course is the perfect all-rounder.

Balmalp

Balmalp

The Balmalp is run by Gertrud's brother Rudi, possibly the best-known mountain hut landlord in the area. Renowned throughout the Alps, it's not only the interior of the hut that is unusual: the terrace offers quite a few little luxuries too. Watching the sunset over the Balmenalp is a special experience every time, and definitely not to be missed. Add to this the best pizzas in the world to be found up a mountain, original apres-ski entertainment with cool music and a superlative 360° panoramic view over Lech.

Haus Wallis

Haus Wallis

Haus Wallis is located next door to the Knappaboda and is run by Herbert's sister Kriemhild. Equalling the Knappaboda in every way, we are happy to recommend it to our guests - when we are already full, for example.

Sporthotel Loisach

Sporthotel Loisach

The Sporthotel Loisach is run by Gertrud's sister Hillo and her husband Charly. The hotel is located in Lermoos/Tirol and is our best recommendation for an active summer holiday.
