Hotel Rosengarten is a modern and luxurious hotel located in the cosy town of Kirchberg in Tirol, Austria. Kirchberg is conveniently located close to famous Kitzbühel, one of the top ski resorts in Austria. The town of Kirchberg is somewhat quieter, but the atmosphere is great and cosy with plenty of après-ski bars, shops and restaurants. In winter, it is all about skiing here, with 170 kilometres of slopes in the surrounding mountains. In summer, hiking and golf are popular activities.
It is in this beautiful area, surrounded by hills and mountains, that one will discover hotel Rosengarten. Top chef Simon Taxacher and his wife Sandra Kobald manage and own the hotel and created a unique place where gastronomy and hospitality are blended into an unforgettable Alpine getaway. The hotel is part of the Relais & Châteaux chain and is positioned as one of the most luxurious and most modern properties of the area. And yes, the place definitely lives up to that name. Innovative design is merged with tradition, authenticity, and 21st century luxury. The interior of the hotel combines minimalistic and metropolitan design, resulting in a clean, warm ensemble.
The hotel features twelve comfort rooms, six superior rooms, three junior suites (40 square metres), three suites (50 square metres) and two deluxe suites (55 square metres). All rooms are named after produce used at the hotel’s kitchen, like ‘Homard’, ‘Safran’, or ‘Bordeaux’. From all of the rooms the views on the surrounding mountains and forests are fantastic, and from the cosy terraces, one can fully enjoy these views. The rooms are modern and warm, with king size beds, lots of light, spacious state-of-the-art bathrooms, and all necessary amenities. The suites even feature a fully stocked private wine cabinet. For guests longing for a royal start of the day, the Rosengarten Butler service is a perfect extra. The butler trolley arrives in your room, on the balcony or beside your bed, and features numerous drawers with breakfast delights. The peak of breakfast pleasure with view on the Alps!
Gastronomy is very important at hotel Rosengarten. At Bistro-Restaurant Rosengarten Light guests can enjoy Austrian Alpine cuisine in an informal environment. With dishes like the pickled Tirolean salmon trout with wild herbs and lime, the cream of pumpkin, the fried black pudding with pickled savoy and bacon, the ‘Wiener Schnitzel’ of alpine pork with parsley potatoes and cranberries, or the chocolate cake with lavender ice cream and orange, this restaurant is the ideal place to get acquainted with a very qualitative version of the local cuisine. Just like the gastronomic restaurant of Hotel Rosengarten, only fresh and qualitative produce is used here, coming from local suppliers where possible.
The gastronomic flagship of the hotel is restaurant Simon Taxacher. Acclaimed as one of the best restaurants in Austria, this restaurant alone is worth the journey to Kirchberg. Stunning design, inventive Austrian cuisine, and excellent service are the main ingredients of this amazing restaurant. You can read all about it in our restaurant section. Rosengarten also features a Bulthaup cookery school where amateur chefs are introduced into secrets of haute cuisine together with top chef Simon Taxacher.
The lobby bar is the perfect introduction to the hotel and a great way to unwind with a glass of bubbles after an intensive ski day. However, the best option for luxurious relaxation is the Rosengarten Spa, an oasis of tranquillity located in the cellars of the hotel. The calming and mystical ambiance encourages guests to relax to the fullest. The Finnish sauna, marble steam room and relaxation area with waterbeds are the perfect setting for a deep sense of wellbeing. Several high-end treatments for individuals or couples are available in beautiful, tranquil treatment rooms. The idyllic garden is the perfect spot for summer relaxation, with an outdoor pool with view on the mountains.
Rosengarten is more than a hotel: it is a place where top gastronomy, design, Austrian cuisine, wellbeing and nature are mixed into the perfect Alpine experience.
