Norbet Niederkofler got his first taste of cooking learning from his dad growing up in the Dolomites of Italy. Off he went to Germany, Switzerland, the United States and Austria to train in the culinary field.

When he made his way back to Italy, he joined Rosa Alpina Hotel & Spa and renovated and recreated its St. Hubertus restaurant in 1996.

Niederkofler’s world travels enabled him to bring international flavors to the mountains, with Michelin awarding him three stars.
