Gastronomy in the Thermen- & Vulkanland 

There’s plenty of flavour in the Thermen- & Vulkanland! Numerous eateries, wine taverns, and award-winning Gault Millau-accredited restaurants are enough to make any gourmand’s mouth water. Here’s a short guide through the culinary expanses of the Thermen- & Vulkanland:

Inns and restaurants

When the hosts take inspiration from grandma’s old recipe book, you’re in for a treat: traditional cooking is very important in Southeast Styria’s gourmet scene. Given the occasional contemporary spin, guests can look forward to extraordinary taste experiences. Is there anything finer than letting the flavours of Styria’s Thermen- & Vulkanland melt in the mouth?

Award-winning venues

Every autumn in Austria, leading restaurant critics award Gault & Millau points. Martina and Karl Hohenlohe have repeatedly expressed their belief that Styria is a true culinary wonderland. What can we get you? Caramelised tomatoes on foamy basil or a traditional “Schweinsbackerl” (pork with dumplings) on potato and horseradish püree?

The Styrian “Buschenschank”

Traditional wine taverns (“Buschenschänken”) are convivial, warm, cosy places where wine is enjoyed as it should be. The quality of the service, the lovely atmosphere, and especially the hospitality are what make these Styrian taverns so enduringly popular. This in turn indicates why the Buschenschank is held in such high esteem. They have been around for over 230 years, and they are simply unique. It is vital to preserve this tradition, and to keep it going in the future. Each one is special and strongly rooted in the region.
