Almresi Restaurant – Home

Our Family Story


My husband and I met with a common dream: America. He moved to Vail, Colorado in the 80s to live and work, and he fell in love with the American lifestyle.  After we got married, we started our business in Germany and we began spending many vacations with our four kids throughout the US. Even though our lives were in Germany, we never lost sight of our hearts’ desire to bring America into

them as well. About a year ago, we were vacationing again in the beautiful Rockies and I really don’t know how it happened, but everything fell together like a mosaic and we found ourselves with a unique opportunity: running a restaurant. We knew that this was our chance to expand into America not only our business, but also our lives, and we seized the opportunity. In doing so, we began to realize

a common family dream. One year of planning, organizing, rebuilding, and many overseas flights later with highs and lows that building up a new project in a foreign country has to offer , we are happy to announce the opening of Almresi just in time for Christmas. We hope to bring a touch of romantic charm and European culture to the pristine and rustic village that is Vail.

Up in the mountains for many years a story has been told. Resi was a beautiful and graceful farm girl engaged to the son of a woodsman, Florian. Their love and happiness ended unexpectedly when Florian was killed while hunting an exceptional large deer. After her loss the inconsolable Resi decorated the antlers with flowers and moved far away from the place that reminded her of her lost love. She not only found her inner peace but also her destiny up in the mountains in an isolated cottage, dedicating her time and heart to look after  the travellers passing by. She catered to the hikers so well that her reputation as an outstanding hostess soon became legendary. When the locals felt spoiled, loved and completely at home somewhere they would say: “It is just as lovely here as it is at Almresi.”
