Hotel Fink 1896

Hotel Fink 1896

In 1896, the Fink family took over a former butcher shop in the pedestrian zone of cozy Brixen, one of the oldest towns in South Tyrol. The medieval center is characterized by arcades and alleys with traditional stores, bars and restaurants. In 2023 Petra and Florian Fink renovated the beautiful mansion with great respect for the historical elements of the building. Their philosophy is based on sustainable thinking and action. Only sustainable, ecologically produced raw materials were used for the renovation and decoration: natural materials for the insulation, plaster and paint made of lime and local - preferably old - wood. The self-designed furniture is made entirely of wood - down to the dowels and screws - and is therefore completely recyclable.


Upon arrival you will receive a free 'Brixen Card'. With this card you can travel by train or bus to all South Tyrolean attractions and use various cable cars that take you to the most beautiful places in the Dolomites. In addition, you get 3hours of free admission to "Aquarena," a water paradise with 3,000m² of pools, and to 90 museums in the region. From the Messner Museum Corones to the South Tyrolean archaeology museum with the world-famous ice man "Ötzi".

Book your stay before 31/08/24 and receive an 80 euro restaurant credit, usable until 31/08/25.

Chef Florian owes his extensive knowledge of the preparation of vegetables and herbs, stews, bread to his mother Antonia and to his collaboration with the convent gardens. His kitchen concept emphasizes naturally grown ingredients of traceable origin. Food scraps, such as the green tops of carrots and fennel, the outer leaves of a cauliflower, he uses for sauces, pesto, toppings and soups. Food leftovers from the restaurant are delivered to monasteries that donate the food to the less fortunate.

In the morning, the hotel serves an extensive breakfast à la carte, including freshly prepared local delicacies. In the afternoon, lunch is available. In the restaurant, Chef Florian draws on the cuisine of the monks. They swore by a simple and natural preparation of a dish with emphasis on taste and health. He prepares his dishes based on daily fresh products, sourced from the city's monastery gardens or nearby farms. The focus is on ingredients of vegetable origin. There is a wide choice of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Meat and fish are offered depending on availability, a core element of the sustainability concept. The restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays, in July and August only on Sundays. In good weather, you can enjoy your meal under the arcades.

Caractère review

Very small-scale hotel, where modern and historical go hand in hand, and operated with attention to detail. The friendly service and delicious cuisine are an absolute asset, as well as the location in the cozy center of Brixen. Ideal for those who like to enjoy the intimate atmosphere of a small town with bars, stores and restaurants.
