Toque-awarded cuisine
with the taste of Carinthia

It goes without saying that an award-winning gourmet restaurant like the Loystubn in Bad Kleinkirchheim, Carinthia, works exclusively with high-quality products. The focus is on the use of homegrown produce. Meat, vegetables and herbs are mostly sourced from the hotel’s own farm and the adjacent large garden, while the trout are caught in our private fishing waters.

The history of the Loystubn
and the Pulverer family

When you enter the Loystubn, you can feel its very special atmosphere. In a wondrous way, everything here seems so familiar, even if you are sitting in the parlors for the first time. The wood-paneled restaurant is the beating heart of the Pulverer, with centuries of hospitality in its roots.

Let us tell you the story:

In 1926, Josef and Maria Pulverer took over the farm. Maria, an astounding woman, way ahead of her time. Renowned and particularly popular. She loved hunting, fishing and cooking, all while taking care of her six children. Together with her husband, Josef, she opened a snack station next to a sawmill with 150 lumberjacks. The snack station soon became a small inn. The parlors of today's Loystubn are still the same as they were back then. They have been carefully restored over the years.

Some of the old farmhouse cupboards throughout the house are from Josef's sawmill. The antlers on the walls of the Loystubn belonged to Maria and remain a lasting memento of the two of them...

Reserve a table in the authentic ambience of the Loystubn or the Zirbenstubn parlors and indulge in exquisite Carinthian delicacies.
