Summet dinner


Enjoying a superb Summit Dinner is the best way to understand why James Bond has chosen the ice Q as a film shooting location. The one-of-a-kind Alpine scenery coupled with palate-tickling specialties and a fine selection of wines, accompanied by smooth jazz music promises a truly unforgettable evening – encircled by a starry blue sky at 3048 meters altitude.

I took part in this wonderful experience, soaking up a bit of this very special atmosphere.

And off we go! The Gaislachkogl mountain gondola takes me up to the middle station where aperitif and amuse gueule are served. A nice start into a memorable evening. But I don’t stay here – I am on the way to take a look behind the scenes of the unrivaled Summit Dinner.

As soon as I reach the Gaislachkogl top station I can’t believe my eyes – a sparkling glass cube encircled by uninterrupted panoramic views of the picture-book Alpine scenery.

Similar to a picture postcard, but much better.



Managing director Valentino Schwarz and his expert crew take care of all preparations and fine tuning works before the first guests arrive. And what’s best, today is a very special moment for a young couple in love: the ice Q will play a really outstanding role in their future lives.

So let’s accomplish the next TOP Secret mission at the Hot Spot in the Alps!

"In my opinion, nowadays it’s not enough to serve only food and drink. We want to create this special WOW effect.”

And it was exactly this WOW effect that made the fine gourmet dishes, created by kitchen chef Patrick Schnedl and his excellent team, a unique experience: a marvelous six-course dinner menu served at the highest level.

This time it’s not James Bond but Marvin Spinhoff who is on an almost “Secret Mission”: code name “marriage proposal”.


A very outstanding place for his sophisticated plan. And Marvin proposed to Tanja in style, surrounded by no less than 250 mountain peaks in a highly romantic setting. This is probably what every women dreams of.


Of course, Tanja said “yes”.


Wishing you all the best from the bottom of our hearts and good luck for your future life together. See you soon in Sölden again!


There is nothing better to end a wonderful evening than with a fine Grappa Nonino from the 6.3 liter Imperial Bottle of Italy’s Piemonte Region.


Warm, velvety, with a long finish, lovely aromatic nuances and fruity notes of apricot, vanilla and bitter almond – a truly noble spirit.
