Follow the twisting country roads between Salzburg and Munich past the Chiemsee Lake to arrive at the quaint alpine village of Auschau, home of the Bavarian fairytale of Residenz Heinz Winkler. Conceived by “cuisine vitale” founder Heinz Winkler, this gourmet sanctuary has been transformed from a late medieval building into a modern yet tradition-conscious estate focused on wellbeing through unique culinary delights.
Most guests begin their visit to Residenz Heinz Winkler with a champagne aperitif and a five-course gala dinner, the perfect way to set the tone for the remainder of their stay. The residence boasts 32 palatial rooms and suites charmingly decorated with antique furniture, elegant details, and windows overlooking Mt. Kapenwand, the castle, or the village. For discerning guests, the crown jewel of the house is the Residenz suite, known for its comfort and exceptionally gorgeous views of the Chiemgau Mountains.
Owned by a 20-time three-star Michelin chef, Residenz Heinz Winkler is adamant about its gastronomy. Three restaurants—Venetian Restaurant, Winter Garden, and Mountain Terrace—offer up world-class culinary art and stimulating aperitifs, with chef Winkler at the helm of their creation. With great food also comes great wine. The hotel’s wine cellar holds approximately 950 labels of noble and rare Château wines to complement any meal. After this display of culinary prowess, retire to the Davidoff Lounge, the perfect place for a late night cigar.
In addition to its sophisticated cuisine, Residenz Heinz Winkler also offers incredible wellness amenities. The Laconium, antique in its design, is equipped with Finnish and Roman saunas, swimming pool, and Tepidarium for ultimate relaxation. There are also plenty of opportunities to try a hand at something new, with classes and arrangements centered on golf, spa, cooking, skiing, and hiking in the surrounding scenery.Request Information
