Walserstuba in the Kleinwalsertal

Comfort, Excellent Food And A Heart For Detail

Arriving at the alpine hotel Alpahotel Walserstuba in Riezlern (during the Gourmet Days), a little town in the Austrian valley of Kleinwalsertal, we feel instantly welcomed.

Jeremias, Chef and co-owner of the family business Walserstuba greets us friendly from behind a stack of fresh vegetables and fruits.

We feel welcomed at every of our 3 days we spend here. Ulrike, who introduces her as the “Ole” which means Granny in the valley´s dialect takes tours to the mountains and huts with her guests and helped us figuring out our routes. Jodok who answers any questions behind the reception and gives us a ticket for the gondolas and chair lifts in the Kleinwalsertal (the ticket is included in the prize during summer) or Bettina, the young mother and Jeremias´wife.

We feel like at home. Dinner for the house guests means getting fresh, crisp salad from the buffet, a soup, a main dish, which makes not only fish and meal fans happy but vegetarians like us, too.

One highlight is my dessert: Sorbet from the mountain pine with cherries from the Bodensee. Delicious!  The digestif, in my case a cherry schnapps is served in an old stroller by the waiter. Thomas tries the raspberry schnapps.

The rooms are furnished in an alpine style. Lots of wood, an elevated bed…I feel like a princess…and a balcony with a spacious seating area. There are two categories of rooms. We stayed in the larger category 1.

You find the love for detail in the whole house. Be it the home made pillows, the embroidered towels or the beer mugs…

We felt like home and enjoyed our stay a lot.

Tip: Staying at the Walserstuba you are offered a breakfast and dinner and in summer a ticket for the cable railways in the Kleinwalsertal. No excuse for not having adventurous days in the mountains.

If you don´t stay in the Walserstuba you should at least have dinner here once or spend some time in the afternoon on the terrace. After hiking or biking you can try a delicious cake. 😉

  1. Sorbet made from mountain pine? I have never heard of that but am dying to try it! The fresh and local ingredients here look absolutely divine. A drink on that terrace after a day of hiking would be just about perfect.

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed the food in Austria and would love to explore it more. I have a soft spot for alpine hotels with blond wood and karate chopped pillows.

  3. Looks like a great place to stay for a couple of nights! I loved Austria but I haven’t been there in such a long time. Years in fact, now I think about it! Maybe it’s time for a revisit? Will definitely check this place out when I go back!

  4. Sounds great! We also have Walser communities here in Italy with lots of cute little hotels. We are mountain lovers so this sounds like the place for us!
