Not far from the former vineyards of Archduke Johann is the Rauch-Hof, surrounded by a beautiful landscape. The delightful restaurant with its outdoor sitting area and gourmet kitchen recommended by Gault Millau and Slow Food Styria awaits. Chef Karin Rauch uses only local ingredients. Asparagus and pumpkins grow in the backyard, trout is freshly fished in their own pond. The complementing wine is served by owner and sommelier Willi Rauch.

The “Kulturwirtshaus” (culture inn) hosts a variety of programmes which star famous artists from all over Austria, such as “Cooking and Reading” with well-known authors. Those who want to stay longer will sleep comfortably in one of the renovated farmhouses with idyllic rooms in wine-growers style. These are charming and individually furnished with solid wood furniture and include spacious bathrooms. Then there is the wine-grower style room situated in the main building which offers a large roof terrace and an elegant mixture of vintage and new furniture.
