Thomas Juranitsch, sommelier
Sven Uzat, restaurant manager
Lukas Gstir, Souschef and
Silvio Nickol, Chef.
Silvio Nickol says that passion, his work and luck are
the three pillars of his career.
He discovered his passion for cooking at the age of 7 at home in Hoyerswerda, when he prepared food for his little brother.
The years he spent in training and as a journeyman were characterized by hard work, a lot of joy and great teachers: With Lothar Eiermann in Zweiflingen in 1994, then chef de partie for Harald Wohlfahrt at the Hotel Traube Tonbach in 1997. This was followed in 1999 by a couple of years in Belgium with Roger Souvereyns before he returned to Harald Wohlfahrt as sous chef in 2001. From 2006 he cooked with Heinz Winkler in Aschau, and a year later his travels led him to the Schlosshotel Velden in Austria. In 2009 his cooking there was awarded two Michelin stars.
Since 2011, Silvio Nickol has led the team in the gourmet restaurant at
Palais Coburg, having been invited to do so by Peter Pühringer.
Which brings us to pillar number three - the luck you need to meet the
right people at the right moment. And he would like to express his
great gratitude to them here.
