Culinary at the Romantik Hotel Das Schiff
There are probably a number of reasons why, according to the top gourmet guides, the Romantik Hotel Das Schiff serves some of the finest cuisine in Vorarlberg. The main reason is surely the head chef Mrs Metzler, mother of the Metzler family who run the hotel. The fact that she has reached the upper echelons of the culinary world as a self-taught chef says a lot about her talent, motivation and passion.
Another key factor, however, has to be the successful marriage of traditional and modern, international and regional influences. As far as the ingredients are concerned, certain rules are set in stone: regional not imported, fresh not tinned, natural not processed. This is better for the region, the environment, and definitely for the flavour.
