Opening of the “Culinary Way of St James” 2019
The Culinary Way of St James this year, once again, will stimulate the senses for an indulgent hike.
The food-themed hike in the Paznauntal valley is an initiative in cooperation with gourmet chef Eckart Witzigmann, which attracts gourmets and nature lovers alike to the Tyrolean mountains. This year, the Culinary Way of St James hike takes place on Sunday 7th July.
On five different routes, hikers, gourmets and five-star and award-winning chefs set off to hike to one of five huts in the fine food region of Austria. In each of the five Alpine Association huts one of the top chefs will present his skills, inviting the many holiday-makers to taste and enjoy.
The dishes they create will remain on the menu at that hut throughout the summer. The partner huts can be found in Ischgl as well as in Galtür, Kappl and See, from where all the hikes start at 10am.
The dining huts along the Culinary Way of St James:
- Jamtalhütte, Galtür
- Friedrichshafener Hütte, Ischgl
- Heidelberger Hütte, Ischgl
- Almstüberl, Kappl
- Ascherhütte, See
