Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Residenz Heinz Winkler is a medieval castle turned 5-star hotel in the Bavarian Alps, between Salzburg and Munich.

The grand hotel is owned by Michelin-starred chef, Heinz Winkler, creator of Cuisine Vitale, a style of cooking that focuses on healthy gourmet dishes. The property is a 20-minute drive from the Chiemsee, the largest lake in Bavaria, and is just five minutes from Hohenaschau Castle. The surrounding ski resorts are easily accessible in winter, and walking, biking and golf are popular summer activities.

The 2-Michelin-starred restaurant is a destination in itself and serves Italian-style dishes. Pair your meal with a glass of wine from the cellar, which stocks 25,000 bottles. Lunch and dinner are served in the dining room, on the spacious terrace or in the garden. The hotel's spa features a Finnish sauna, a Roman-style bathing area, ice showers and a gym. The hotel can arrange activities in the local area including golf, skiing, biking and rafting.

The 30 rooms and suites face the mountains or the gardens and are individually decorated. Many feature antiques and fine artwork. The Garden Suite has a private patio and direct access to the grounds.
