The Dish of the Week

Gitti’s fabulous Kaiserschmarrn at Schmelzhof Lech.

The Winter Sport of the Week

Cross-Country Skiing is the Hottest Sport of the Season.


  • Classic XC: If you truly are a beginner, and not a downhill skier, the best way to get going is on classic touring skis. These skis are very stable, perform well, are price-efficient, and last many years.
  • Skate XC: If you already are a skier and are looking for a new challenge, skate skiing may be more your speed. These skis are light, fast, and conducive to a better workout. Skate skis move best when on a groomed "corduroy" surface, using a motion downhill skiers will be familiar with.

The Wine of the Week

Alois Lageder

KRAFUSS, Pinot Noir, 2019

The Alois Lageder winery in Alto Adige comprises fifty-five hectares of the family's vineyards, which are managed based on biodynamic principles.
