No structure in Neuhaus strikes more interest with locals and tourists alike than our local little train station. For four years my husband and I speculated about this building. You have to imagine our excitement when one Saturday while doing our obligatory recycling duty we noticed a sandwich board placed out front. What could this mean? Within a day the buzz began, “have you heard?…Did you see?”. Thankfully my colleague Ulrike McCarthy was already on the trail of the story and invited me along for a visit.
Claudia Huber created a very appropriately named “La Stazione”, located inside the Fischhausen-Neuhaus Train Station. It is truly a feast for both the eyes as well as the stomach. I would describe it as a cross between a deliciously inviting Italian trattoria and a cozy nook in your favorite bookstore. It is incredibly inviting for the travelers by train and for those who just stop in after a long wander through our beautiful alpine landscape.
The details are too numerous to mention but daily Claudia whips up a delectable Italian specialties such as lasagna or a seasonal rigatoni puttanesca. She has a regular menu offering traditional panini sandwiches and focaccia. Bright bowls of Mediterranean lemons and enormous wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano set the scene. Breakfast is offered with equal delight topped off with freshly squeezed orange juice.
Claudia’s warm and welcoming personality and attention to detail are simply everywhere. From the thoughtful reading glasses on each table to the inviting Swedish stove that will be a draw to any wanderer seeking a snug spot this Winter to enjoy one of the many warm beverages on the menu.
I honestly cannot say enough about the excitement La Stazione has created for local and tourist alike. You simply must experience it for yourself. I will leave you with this little insider tip. La Stazione offers fresh Wasmeier Museum beer on tap.
