Norbert Niederkofler

Norbert Niederkofler’s culinary roots can be traced back to his father in the Valle Aurina, a small valley in the province of Bolzano, where he developed a love of home cooking using local quality products. Norbert trained in  Germany, then Switzerland, the USA, Austria and then back to Germany before moving back to Italy. He started to direct the St. Hubertus Restaurant, in the skiing village of San Cassiano in 1996, gaining its first Michelin star in 2000, a second in 2007 and the third in 2018.
Norbert says of himself: “When I was 18 years of age I had a great goal in mind: “I want to see the world. And I had a second goal, a much more moderate one: “I want to be a chef. With a lot of discipline I was able to combine both my wishes. I always question myself and try to remain humble. Today, I earn my money by doing
what I love doing, since my profession is my hobby and my philosophy of life.
