Castle hosts for culinary needs

The innkeepers of Hocheppan Castle and Boymont Castle are happy to serve their guests good food. And a visit makes one thing clear: dumplings and ripples taste even better in the midst of historic walls.
It creaks and rattles in the lock, the hand-sized iron key that opens the gate to Hocheppan Castle. I wonder who once managed it: the count himself, the housekeeper or even the guard? Today it is Anni Zuchristian and Peter Fink. And how did it happen when about 300 inhabitants with noblemen, knights, servants and servants cavorted on the small estate? The guest gets a slight foreboding of this when he or she sits down in the inner courtyard of the medieval complex on well-attended days.

In the new EppanMagazin you can find out more about the dumplings in the chapel and which delicacies and exciting activities await you at Hocheppan Castle. 

Just 1.3 kilometres of track and 40 minutes walking time from Hocheppan, there is a spooky silence after work. The castle ruin Boymont is not inhabited, but there is a lot of activity during the day. Here it is Josef Windegger - for everyone simply the "Peppi" who commands the well-being of his guests. "The special thing is that we are all on a first-name basis," says the innkeeper. Loose and casual is his style. Not only the many regular guests, but also the prominent visitors liked that: just being human.

It doesn't matter that the tables are not covered with tablecloths. That the guests queue up for their drinks and meals at the serving counter instead of being served. That the menu is manageable, but the dishes are tasty.

Your mouth will water when you learn more about Peppi's Ripples.
