Lanz Service Station near Bressanone/Brixen
Location: on the SS 49 Puster Valley road, 2 km from the motorway.
Take a seat at one of our tables, in the fresh air perhaps if the weather is nice.
Or come inside and enjoy our alpine-style “Stube” or dining room. The artist Manfred Alois Mayr and the architect Walter Angonese have given a modern twist to rural traditions based on the historical “Stube”. The reinterpretation of the furniture embodies typical elements of craftsmanship in combination with an exciting colour scheme comprising oxide red, blue-grey, orange, yellow and black.
In the past, ornamentation was employed to make the furniture more individual and also to date it. The Lanz “Stube”, too, has been given its very own profile (literally) through the use of black paint on the backs of the chairs and benches to create silhouettes of the clients, the designer and a number of visitors. The thinking behind the Lanz “Stube” is to create an ensemble that embodies the social element of life through a conceptual and romantic interpretation of everyday culture and an aesthetic convention.
At a more practical level, the Lanz Service Station near Bressanone/Brixen also has a big car park, spotlessly clean rest rooms and a delicatessen offering a wide range of regional products.
Lanz Service Station on the Brenner Pass
Location: on the north-bound carriageway of the Brenner Motorway on the south side of the tunnel that marks the border between Austria and Italy.
Frequent travellers to Italy will know the building: The Plessi Museum is an impressive structure with a striking glass facade and a spacious car park. The museum itself does not attract a lot of visitors. But it is still a good place to stop and take a break: it also houses the Lanz Service Station!
The typical Lanz offering is available here in an outstanding setting – in a museum. It includes fresh regional fare and drinks (to enjoy there or take with you), a South Tyrolean deli shop, immaculately maintained rest rooms (free of charge), and lots of space for families and coach parties. You can also take advantage of your stop for a free visit to the museum.
The Plessi Museum
The museum itself is dedicated to the art of Fabrizio Plessi and includes video walls, sculptures, paintings and drawings. The tables, chairs, workbenches and CortTen steel shelves are also the work of the artist, who was born in Reggio Emilia in 1940. More information about the Plessi Museum >
Lanz Service Station by the Europa Bridge
Location: on the south-bound carriageway (also accessible from the north-bound carriageway) of the Brenner Motorway at the southern end of the Europa Bridge.
A room with a view! We think no other motorway service station offers such wonderful views – of Innsbruck and the Nordkette mountains, the Inn Valley in either direction and also the Stubai Valley. That makes your stop something special.
The architecture and interior design are in the typical Lanz style: clean lines, first-class materials, strong colours.
The bar and café serve top quality food and drinks, freshly prepared from regional ingredients. The delicatessen shop offers a carefully selected range of regional and artisanal products from North and South Tyrol: smoked bacon and sausages, cheese, bread, chocolate, wine and much else besides. A pleasure to relax, a joy to shop.
Clean, safe and healthy – that is how the food and facilities should be, especially when you are travelling with children. With spotlessly clean rest rooms (complete with baby changing facilities), snug sitting areas and fine fare from regional producers for adults and children, you can be sure that the whole family will enjoy the stop – and will be fit and happy for the onward journey!
Cycle path: Cyclists also deserve a break now and then – with a cool drink and tasty snack. South Tyrol has a whole network of cycle paths for all levels of ability. Some are right on our doorstep.
We welcome coaches and are well prepared, with plenty of room to alight, adequate toilet facilities and a perfect cappuccino in no time at all. Lanz offers a gateway to South Tyrol for all coach parties – or a fine place to say goodbye after a wonderful holiday. No matter how large the group, everything is always under control and the coach stop a pleasure for one and all.
For even better and faster service, we are always pleased
