Lanz Service Station near Bressanone/Brixen
Location: on the SS 49 Puster Valley road, 2 km from the motorway exit.
Take a seat at one of the tables that stand in front of the building for as long as the weather permits. Stretch your legs and enjoy the fresh air – just what you need after sitting in the car for so long!
Or come inside and enjoy our snuggy alpine-style “Stube” or dining room. The “Stube” used to be the most important room in a Tyrolean farmhouse (next to the kitchen!). Ours is a modern interpretation of this traditional element by the artist Manfred Alois Mayr working in collaboration with the architect Walter Angonese. The result is a successful combination of tradition and modernity, which is also our guiding principle.
The historical “Stube” was the point of departure for the design of our eatery, and this latter-day “Stube” incorporates the typical work of the craftsman in combination with an exciting colour scheme comprising oxide red, blue-grey, orange, yellow and black painted surfaces.
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 both 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 toilets and a delicatessen offering a wide range of South Tyrolean 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 a huge structure with a striking glass facade. So far that has not persuaded many motorists to stop. But, as of February 2016, there is a very good reason to pay a visit: the Lanz Service Station in the Plessi Museum.
The typical Lanz offering – with fresh regional fare and drinks (to enjoy there or take with you), immaculately maintained toilets, plenty of room for families and coach parties – is available here in an unusual setting: in a museum. If you want, you can take advantage of your stop for a (free) look at the exhibits.
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. Click here for more information about the Plessi Museum >
Clean, safe and healthy – that is how the food and facilities should be, especially when you are travelling with children. With spotlessly clean toilets (complete with baby changing room of course), snug sitting areas and fine fare from South Tyrolean producers for adults and children, you can be sure that the whole family will enjoy the stop - and you will have contented kids in the car afterwards!
Cycle path: Cyclists also deserve a break now and then – with a bite to eat and a cool and refreshing drink. 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
