Philosophy

"When Styria is on the label, Styria is in it"! Kulinarium Styria, an initiative launched by the tourism department of Styria, has been committed to this claim for around ten years already.

Kulinarium Styria calls for regional identity through the revitalisation and appreciation of local products and traditional recipes on the one hand, and on the other hand supports high-quality partnerships between Styrian restaurateurs and their surrounding farmers and producers.

Reliable representatives of the initiative are the 165 awarded Kulinarium Styria businesses that – ranging from star-rated restaurants to hotel restaurants, from inns and guesthouses to rustic cabins – together with the Styrian top producers and Kulinarium Styria partners put high-quality local products on your plate and prove to be tradition-conscious hosts.
