Simon Taxacher began his career by studying at the Villa Blanka Catering College in Innsbruck. He then worked in the kitchens of renowned chefs at home and abroad, gaining his first experiences in the rarefied world of haute cuisine. In 2000, he returned to Kirchberg where he joined the family business and, within a year, had opened the Restaurant Rosengarten. In 2009, when he was just 33 years old, Simon Taxacher’s gourmet restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars.
By December 2010, he and his partner Sandra Kobald had opened the Hotel Restaurant Spa Rosengarten, thereby fulfilling his vision of consummate hospitality. This vision went on to reap many international awards. The hotel’s spa area was enlarged in 2017 and the hotel was awarded its 5-star rating in 2018. In 2020 came the crowning glory: 5 Gault&Millau toques. There is great excitement about the innovations and awards that will follow in the wake of his already extraordinary success.
