Vigiljoch

The Vigiljoch and its restaurants

A stage finish, i.e., “Zuakehren” to stop for a bite in a restaurant, on alpine pastures and in a lounge (Stube) has traditionally always been a part of mountain excursions – whether on foot or by bike. As pleasantly warm and unaltered as the Vigiljoch itself are the nine resting places that serve up creative South Tyrolean recipes made of fresh, seasonal ingredients here. Traditional and down-to-earth, young and peppy or modern and puristic – their passion for fine food and a good glass of wine is what they all have in common.

Stube Ida

Opening hours:
daily 11 am – 6 pm

Located right next to the mountain station of the cable car, the "Stube Ida" invites you during the day to its spacious sun terrace with a view of the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomites – or to the cosy "Bauernstube", which brings the charm of past times into the present. Simple, delicious dishes and daily recommendations, aromatic coffee and cake invite you to linger a little longer.
