“Memories is basically a living room,” he says. “We, the chefs, cook in the open kitchen and our guests are able to observe every move while we create their next plate.”
“My focus lies in the ingredients and their flavors,” he adds. “Interacting with our guests, telling them about the produce and providors as well as being able to observe their reactions is magical.”

Enjoy a day trip to neighbouring Liechtenstein
Just 30kms and 30 minutes by car from Bad Ragaz is Liechtenstein, a small but exquisite sovereign state between Switzerland and Austria.
Traditions, customs and fascinating art treasures recount the rich history and culture of the country.
The last German-speaking monarchy comprises 11 municipalities and only 38,000 citizens. It is compact in the truest sense of the word, and bears the name of a dynastic family that resides in Vaduz Castle.
