Prices include wines. Programme may be subject to changes without prior notice.
Chef Andreas Caminada (born May, 1977) has been running Schloss Schauenstein since 2003. Within the last 15 years, Andreas has cooked his way up to the top of the world’s culinary hierarchy – acclaimed with three Michelin stars and 19 points at Gault Millau. Passion and unbounded ambition are the ingredients of his recipe for success. On the plate, Andreas prefers to work with rather simple and generally familiar ingredients from local farmers – yet uses them in a different way. His cooking is multifaceted and his signature talent, if there is such a thing, is to create and combine various preparations of one single ingredient. Whether crunchy, sweet, crisp, tart or bitter – each component fits intriguingly. His aim is to create a cuisine that has an accessible quality. Each element on the plate is given a specific role to play – and each bears his signature.
In 2015 the native of Graubünden launched his second restaurant brand IGNIV by Andreas Caminada with currently two casual dining hotspots at the Grand Resort in Bad Ragaz and at Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in St. Moritz – both have been awarded with a Michelin star within their first year after opening. Close to his heart is also the engagement for his own foundation. Fundaziun Uccelin was founded in order to give back knowledge to the next generation by supporting and nurturing young, talented chefs and service staff.
Even though Andraes always has a strong desire to achieve new levels, he tries to never lose sight for essentials and treasures a special relationship to his homeland. Here, amidst the impressive mountains oft he Swiss Alps, he is able to find peace, new strength and inspiring ideas.
With just 300 inhabitants, Fürstenau is the smallest town in the world. Its second-biggest claim to fame is the fact that it is home to Schloss Schauenstein, which houses one of Switzerland’s best restaurants as well as a refined boutique hotel since 2003. After 15 years Schloss is no longer a closely guarded secret but one of the world’s top dining destinations for gourmets and foodies worldwide – thanks to its ambitious head chef and host, Andreas Caminada. Since 2011, Schloss Schauenstein has also gained a place on the prestigious World's 50 Best Restaurant List, followed by a place within the OAD Top100+ European Ranking since 2014. In 2018, Schloss Schauenstein was voted No 1 in Europe by the OAD community and awarded as Best European Restaurant.
Over the years the original castle has gradually been enlarged. Today, the boutique hotel as well as the redesigned Meierhaus next to the originally castle building offer nine double rooms and suites. The rooms with their long history have been equipped with hand-picked modern furnishings and design classics so that every element blends seamlessly with the contemporary atmosphere inside the old castle walls. A connected park with a pool adds to the luxury features and completes the overall experience that awaits guests at Schloss Schauenstein.
