Culinary delights in the Nassfeld – Lake Pressegger See region

Our campsite guests not only enjoy their breath-taking surroundings, but also can delve into the culinary delights of the region.

In Austria’s southern most region, farming has always been an essential component, and remains so to this day. Because of this the majority of this fresh produce finds its way on to the plates of our local taverns and restaurants. 

Fish from the drinking quality waters of the lakes. Delicious honey made by local bees from nectar gathered from the many wild flowers in the area. Cattle who are on the Alm from June to September, browsing the sweet grasses that create the milk that goes to make the Gail valley cheeses.

Get to know these fantastic culinary delights for yourself: Our teams at "s'Wirtshaus" and the "Waldschenke" look forward to your visit, and to guide you through their menus. 

For those of our guests who want to venture out of the campsite, there are a great variety of recommended taverns to sample:

the "Bärenwirt"offers a great range of traditional Austrian cooking.

The "Seestubn - Zum Alois" (open from May to September) serves fish and grilled meats right next to our Schluga Beach on Lake Pressegger.
(A valuable pointer for the Winter months – you will find the same team in the Aprés Ski Bar "Zum Alois" in Tröpolach, by the valley station of the Millenium Express).

You will also eat very well in the quaint tavern "Zum Feierabend"in Untervellach, as well as in the restaurant of the "Alpen Adria".

In the tavern Gasthof Waldemar you will enjoy local delicacies produced on their own farm. Their terrace provide unparelled views from Nassfeld to Lake Pressegger See. 

For those with a sweet tooth, try out the Konditorei "Semmelrock"in the centre of Hermagor, with their delicious homemade cakes and full range of traditional coffees. 

We also don’t want to forget our wonderful alpine meadows, which help make the famous Gailtaler Almkäse (cheese) which you can sample anytime in a hearty "Jause" (snack). We would like to recommend: 

the Egger Alm, won the beautiful plain above Hermagor (can be reached by asphalted road), making it an ideal destination for mountain bikers and ramblers alike. You can also replenish your energy by eating at the tavern Gasthaus zum Rudi. 

We can also recommend the Naggler Alm (closed on Mondays), the Möselalm and the Kohlröslhütte, the latter a popular destination for mountain bike tours with guide Norbert Schluga jun. (N3).
