He comes from Styria, lives in Groß Walstertal (the Great Walser Valley), and has something of a predilection for culinary experiments. He likes cooking, for example, with produce that isn’t used in many kitchens in the world of high-level gastronomy, such as smoked heart. He breeds pigeons and has developed a menu full of character for the Schlossherren-Stube restaurant at the Schlosshotel Romantica in Ischgl – for which he has won high praise. In this culinary portrait from Trisanna: Gustav Jantscher.
He works for the Lebenshilfe (a charitable association for people with mental disabilities, their families, experts and friends), enjoys conducting the band and won medals in cross-country skiing medal for Austria in the Special Olympics.

Zegg and Cerlati Ischgl present L’Astronomo from Panerai. The first L’Astronomo was created in 2010 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Galieo Galilei’s observations of the heavens following the invention of the telescope. It represents Panerai’s first timepiece with a tourbillon escapement, calendar, equation of time, and sunrise and sunset indicator.
This is Ischgl in a photograph from 1956. It was taken in black and white by the Risch-Lau photo studio of Bregenz (you can read more on the photo studio and its work here). It shows a place on the verge of the present – and in the shadow of a mountain.
Now that everyone wears a helmet out on the slopes, winter hats often don’t get to see much action on winter holidays. Which means they’re picked out with greater care than ever. An overview.
When women move to Galtür, the saying goes that they’ve come to Weiberhimmel – wives’ heaven. You can find out why here. Now artist and illustrator Alexandra Klobouk has drawn a postcard for Trisanna showing […]
He’s not just learning a profession which is in great demand, but is so passionately committed to it that he’s won an award. Trisanna meets Daniel Siegele, apprentice chef in the Hotel Post, and talks to him about tradition, goals – and the fresh draught beer with which he drinks to the end of a day’s work.
He’s 36 years old and became a chef “pretty much by accident.” He was one of the founders of the “Stiar” restaurant, putting it on Ischgl’s culinary map overnight. He gets most of his produce from his own farm and loves to develop dishes “from the Alpine pantry”. Here’s the big conversation with the award-winning chef Gunther Döberl.
Zegg and Cerlati Ischgl present a blend of watchmaking tradition and technical innovation in masterpieces from Hublot. The Hublot Big Bang, for example, is one of the most famous watch models in the world and enjoys great popularity in the watchmaking sector.
People come together on ski lifts. It’s normally not very exciting, but it can sometimes be unusually enjoyable, and at others times a little bit odd. Here’s a little characterization of ski lift passengers.
A find from an old skiing library. The techniques might make us grin today, but we can still learn a lot about the origins of skiing. From a time when a snowplough was still known as a snowplough, and not a pizza cutter.
The Silvretta Arena pistes have personality. But what kind of personality? If the pistes were, say, comic book or cartoon characters, which ones would they be? A Trisanna test.
He’s the head official in Galtür and runs one of the most interesting museums in the Alps: the Alpinarium. In our Trisanna portrait, he speaks about family, art and working with so few staff that the museum director sometimes has to play caretaker, too. Click on the title for the full interview.
These pictures show what Galtür once looked like. We’ve already reported here on the history of the village, but we can’t get enough of these photos – have a look for yourself.
Zegg and Cerlati Ischgl present the beautiful, colourful jewellery collection of Tamara Comolli. “Our philosophy is to design pieces of jewellery which are timeless and versatile.”
This is a place with a long history. The St. Nicholas chapel in Ischgl was first mentioned as long ago as 1443. Today, the parish church is not only a magnificent feature of Ischgl’s skyline, it’s also a magnificent place of peace in the middle of the bustle of skiing and parties. Trisanna tells its story. And shows you some wonderful pictures.
