Lambrechthof offers for a sustainable & delicious vacation

We have the Lamberechhof offers for a sustainable holiday in the Styria tested. We were invited by the eco-label for two days Austria visiting the Lambrechterhof * in Sankt Lambrecht in the Styria. We experienced how you can have a sustainable vacation there. The Nature Park Hotel Lambrechterhof offers options that not only guarantee an environmentally friendly stay, but also relaxation. We present what these are here.

Take a sustainable vacation in the Nature Park Hotel Lambrechterhof

Sankt Lambrecht in Styria is located in one Landscape that invites to hiking. You won't find any cities here. Klagenfurt, Villach, Graz or Salzburg are all an hour or more away by car. Sankt Lambrecht lies in the Thajagraben of the border mountains between the Styria and Slovenia. We also don't find any rough mountain landscapes. Instead, the surrounding mountain peaks are reminiscent of the glaciers of the Ice Age. These created many of the area's landforms. The Dürnberger Moor, for example, which was created around 12000 years ago.

Naturparkhotel Lambrechtehof offers - Out and about on foot and with the pleasure of being mobile

We use the pleasure mobile that the Lambrechterhof provides us with. We drive our electric cars emission-free. We get to Oberdorf silently. Where the road no longer goes any further, we leave the vehicle behind. From there we continue on foot. The path rises gently with a view of a pond in which a heron is sunning himself. A few meters further on, some cows do the same. They won't let us disturb them either.

Hike to Dürnberger Moor

The path goes past the organic farm Anawander. From there, a meadow path branches off to the edge of the forest. There we turn right into a forest path that leads us to the moor. With its reeds that rustle in the wind, it seems unusual at this altitude. A boardwalk finally brings us to an ancient tree with a wooden bench. Here I leave Petar and Elena from Creative Lena walk a few meters to the lookout tower. Meanwhile, I enjoy the silence around me. The only sound I notice is the wind sweeping through the reeds. A place of power, as I love him.


The same way we go back to our pleasure mobile. This time, however, with a great view of the surrounding mountains.

Back at the Hotel Lambrechterhof, we relax our muscles with a waterbed massage. Residual tension disappears under the experienced hands of the friendly masseur in the spa. So we are well prepared for our dinner, which is served by the Austrian master chef Erich Pucher. What is particularly interesting to us is that in the morning we went with him on a pleasure trip to some of his suppliers from the region. So we experienced one of the best Lambrechterhof offers for sustainable holidays, because Erich Pucher buys his ingredients from local producers.



Our pleasure tour with Erich Pucher

Sustainability plays a big role in Erich Pucher's kitchen. He buys his ingredients from local producers whom he has trusted for years. He knows their products inside and out. It doesn't matter whether we visit the breeder of the lambs that he serves in his restaurant or the schnapps distiller who makes the herbal liqueurs according to his aunt's recipe - Erich Pucher is always greeted like a friend.

Pucher has seen the world. He has cooked in hotels in South Africa, Los Angeles, Arlberg, Sankt Moritz as well as in Scandinavia. He even went to sea for a while until he finally returned to his Styrian homeland. After his years of wandering, he settled in the Rahmhube on the Stolzalpe near Murau. There he earned his first and second Gault Millau toques. This was followed by the third toque at the Gasthof Lercher in Murau. After a break, he has been head chef at Lambrechterhof since 2017. There he combines the exotic influences he got to know during his stays abroad with local products to create new delicacies.

6 thoughts too "Sustainable vacation in Styria"

  1. Oh that's a great offer and so consistent. From the electromobile to the regional products. In addition, the beautiful landscape - there you are sure to recover great.
    I find it particularly cool that you had dinner in the evening, what you bought in the morning together with the chef, which gives you a completely different feeling for the menu.

    Best regards,

    1. Dear Nicole,

      We thought that was great too. After our enjoyment tour in the morning the food tasted particularly good.

      Best regards,

  2. Dear Ones,
    How much I like Styria, you know. All the better if, thanks to this great report, I can discover further ideas and beautiful travel suggestions in this region of Austria.
    Especially the subject of Kinesiology to denigrate I find extremely (ent) exciting.

    Best regards,

    1. Dear Katja,

      I thought that could be something for you. Kinesiology was unknown to us until then. It was an interesting experience.

      Best regards,

  3. Dear Monika,

    a beautifully written article. While reading, I could well imagine what this place of power feels like. It's great that the Lambrechterhof is pursuing a regionally sustainable concept. Unfortunately, I have never been to Styria, but it is definitely on my list.

    1. Dear Ricarda,

      until a few years ago we did not know Styria. That was always too close to us and did not feel like a trip. Since our first visit to the South Styrian Wine Road, we are thrilled with this Austrian state. It offers so much! Great scenery, good food, great wines and hospitable people. We can recommend Styria.

      Best regards,
