  • Description


    We are Viennese entrepreneurs with cinemas and bars in Vienna and Styria. We have been running the Schutzhütte since June 2020. The idea of bringing and expanding our gastronomic and cultural experience in a special place and also to find an alternative to the stress of the big city led us here. In exchange with the local population, the surrounding farms, our guests and employees, a special meeting place in the midst of nature is created here.
    Our house was originally intended as a shelter for people on the mountain. Refuge from storms and cold. Today such a place is much more. Due to the exposed location and the on-site gastronomy, such a place belongs to the pride of the surrounding villagers in the valley, is a place of social cohesion, where people meet for special occasions, or a special local recreational destination for hikes etc. For our National and international guests, it is a spectacular and unusual place with a great view on nice days.

You can also learn how to cook with regional products or get training in bar and service customers. The benchmark is always the famous Austrian hospitality. We also offer a cultural program, mainly in summer and autumn. Especially music and film events. Our focus is on ecologically and human rights related topics. We also have lively contact with the farmers in the area. You can visit the farms and get to know the different ways of doing business in these Styrian quality companies - for example: cattle farming and the associated dairy, cheese, meat production, or grain, fruit and vegetable cultivation; The famous Styrian pumpkin seed oil is also produced in our area. The refuge is also part of a wind farm owned by the Austrian Federal Forests with a large number of wind turbines in the immediate vicinity. Anyone who wants to can be informed about this alternative form of energy generation and, by prior arrangement, be guided through the inside of the huge wind turbines. For those interested in astronomy, the place is a popular and fantastic place for stargazing or star photography because of its altitude and the darkness, which is not disturbed by light pollution.
    In addition, this place is very suitable for sporting activities - cycling, hiking, climbing, ski touring, etc.
    For a workawayer, this not only offers the opportunity to observe nature in a special way, he also gets to know the tasks of regional gastronomy in all its areas and can implement them for his own ideas. - if you want, you can also learn to cook regional specialties. We train every workawayer personally in all of his or her tasks and we visit the farms in the area and the businesses of our food suppliers with the workawayers. Workawayers can also take part in herb hikes, where you learn to differentiate between mountain herbs, how and what they can be used for. In the end, you got to know the rural population here, the peculiarities of the area and the type of economy in the regional small and medium-sized businesses.
    As a team in a mountain hut, we are particularly careful and dependent on creating a familiar atmosphere. Here on the mountain you are dependent on each other in a special way. We spend a lot of free time together - especially on bad weather days - where there is less to do.
