es:senz - Your star restaurant on Lake Chiemsee

The pure flavour of Chiemgau. Surprising re-interpretation.
Behind the name es:senz is the promise to concentrate on the essentials in every dish. Instead of many ingredients, only a few selected components are used, from which the best of their original taste is extracted. True to our motto "Chiemgau Pur", mainly regional products are used for this, naturally in the best organic quality. The 3-Michelin-star gourmet restaurant es:senz in Chiemgau, combines everything the heart desires. Visitors can expect plenty of variety, such as the magnificent Chiemsee, mountains, moorland, sights such as Herrenchiemsee Castle, the hotel's own golf course, lots of relaxation in the Achental SPA and plenty of feel-good ambience in the resort's rooms and suites. A perfect combination for a relaxing break paired with the finest culinary delights at the gates of Munich.



Our big dream has come true: Only 3 years after the opening of our gourmet restaurant es:senz, the team around chef Edip Sigl has been awarded the 3rd Michelin star at the resort Das Achental. As the only 3-star chef in Chiemgau, Edip Sigl will continue to delight gourmet lovers from near and far with his Chiemgau Pur concept and his fine menus.

We would like to thank Edip Sigl and the entire kitchen and service team for this extraordinary success.

The wonderful es:senz journey continues and we are incredibly happy that you are all with us:

Edip Sigl (Exekutive Küchenchef), Simon Adam (Maître d'hôtel), Iiro Lutter (Sommelier), Desiree Nieder (Chef Patissiere), Felix Putzier (Sous Chef), Moritz Meyer (Chef de Partie), Moritz Koschel (Chef de Rang), Korbinian Willibald (Demi Chef de Partie), Noah Mantel (Demi Chef de Patisserie), Alexandra Häusler (Demi Chef de Rang), Philipp Harz (Demi Chef de Rang), Christina März (Commis de Cuisine), Sophie Kühnel (Commis de Rang), Jipke Szabo (Commis de Rang).
