Organic and farm-to-table

Delving into the gastronomic offerings reveals not only a commitment to quality but also a connection to the land itself. The Stanglwirt proudly sources organic ingredients, underscoring its dedication to responsible dining. Furthermore, the establishment’s very own farm supplies an array of dairy products, including milk, cheese, butter, yogurt, and bread, fostering a truly farm-to-table experience.

For a touch of whimsy, guests who venture into the charming “cowshed room” at Gasthof Stanglwirt can personally extend their gratitude to the bovine companions that contribute to this culinary journey. In this way, the Stanglwirt goes beyond the plate, crafting an immersive dining escapade that embraces the richness of both tradition and the earth.

Each features a variety of inclusive services, such as pools, saunas, and relaxation zones, but a few highlights have to be the waterfall grotto, the whirlpool with a view over an aquarium, and Europe’s largest hotel saltwater pool.
