Family Forstnig – Passionate about hospitality

134 Y EA




Everything stays the same – yet everything is new… The team at Trattlers Hof in Bad Kleinkirchheim demonstrate how well tradition and innovation go together. Committed to tradition, yet open to innovative ideas. Jakob Forstnig, who is managing the renowned Trattlerhof hotel in its fifth generation, takes this philosophy to heart. When it comes to getting the Trattlerhof fit for the future, he and the team at Trattlers Hof continue to take innovative paths.

Crowd-investing record in the hotel business Customers from across German speaking territories and investors looking for attractive interest rates offered around 700,000 euros as part of the crowd-investing campaign. Never before has an Austrian tourist business raised such a sum through this innovative form of fi-

nancing. These funds will go to the renovations as well as numerous modernisations in and around the Trattlerhof.

Even more environmentally-friendly in the future When renewing its Austrian eco-label, the Trattlerhof was awarded the European eco-label for the first time in 2017. Minister of the Environment Andrä Rupprechter made special mention of the eco services for the guests of Trattlers Hof. But they weren‘t the only ones to benefit from this unique concept, as a leader for e-mobility in the Nockberge, many other businesses learned of the benefits of environmentally-friendly mobility.

Family Forstnig – a host with a passionate tradition of hospitality

Trattlers ”Sun Realm“ is a highlight for families In June 2017, the first children had the chance to explore the ”Sun Realm“ - a

400m² indoor and outdoor play area. This adds an extra family-friendly offer, complementing the well-known, summer and winter programmes available in the Nockberge region.

Starting today, the best e-car in the world will begin serving the guests of the Trattlerhof Thanks to the Tesla Model X 100D and no less than 9 fast charging stations at the hotel, the chalet restaurant Einkehr and the new Trattler‘s Hof chalets, all ”e-mobility enthusiasts“ can take full advantage of this outstanding network. Starting-today, a brand-new Tesla Model X 100D will be joining Trattler‘s fleet.

In addition to its range of approx. 450 Km and a spacious interior, it is also ideal for transfers to the airport or train station.

In addition to the riding school right next to the hotel, Hof ponies and the horse-drawn carriage express have delighted guests and locals alike for many years. The philosophy of our new horse riding holidays is to instil the joy of riding to all our guests. As well riding, guests can learn about all aspects of life with horses.

Stories of wine, craft beer, distillates and more The Winzer am Berg‘ (Winemaker on the Mountain) event series started as a way to present Austria‘s finest wines. Craft beer and exquisite spirits are now rubbing shoulders with the mighty grape more and more often. Vineyards and Carinthia‘s Nockberge have one thing in common – their steep edges and gentle peaks make for spectacular landscapes. Against this wonderful backdrop, the winemakers featured in the event series ”Winzer am Berg“ present their fine wines in familiar surroundings at the Trattlerhof Hotel in Bad Kleinkirchheim. All year round, a selection of leading wineries such as Erich & Walter Polz, Kollwentz or Schloss Gobelsburg from Austria take centre stage during weekends dedicated to the culinary arts. In doing so, the team at the Trattlers Hof maintains a long tradition. As early as the 17th century, the Trattlerinnkeeper had a licence to run a tavern and sell alcoholic beverages - including wine.

But Steinbier was also of special importance to the Trattlerinnkeeper. In this context, local brewers are presenting their special beers while distillers are showcasing their high-proof delights.

Tip! You can find all dates in connection with the event series Winzer am Berg as well as Kulinarik am Berg (Food and Drink on the Mountain) at www.trattlerhof.at

New impulses relating to crow investing, media and security 55 ”Impuls am Berg“ occasions (Impulse on the Mountain) - exciting dialogues covering current events, science, history and culture. Every month, the initiators Uwe Träger, an evangelic clergyman from Bad Kleinkirchheim, and hotelier Jakob Forstnig invite interesting personalities to discuss thought-provoking topics. 2017 was dedicated to the theme of successful crowd investment with the financial service provider Finnest leading the Trattlerhof to a record result. Editor in chief Hannes Mößlacher of the Kronen Zeitung (newspaper) provided the modern media landscape. Brigardier Walter Gitschtaler answered questions regarding European

security, traditional coffee producer Johannes Hornig inspired java lovers and regional tradespeople showcased their skills in crib building and the glazier trade. ”We don‘t just cater to the physical wellbeing of our guests, we also want to do something for their spirit and mind“ explains Jakob Forstnig jun. There are plenty of exciting topics and the guests appreciate gaining insight into new ”worlds“ during their relaxed stay.

The new highlight on the Einkehr patio: Fish smoker and bread baking oven

”Trattlers Einkehr“ – HOT SPOT for food and drink in Carinthia‘s Nockberge There is always something going on in and around Einkehr. As a result, the new fish smoking & bread baking oven is not only a delight for the eye, but also for the taste buds. The epicurean host expands the culinary offering with its programme of activities. According to the opinions of many of our guests, the new ”eye-catcher“ on the sunny patio of Einkehr is the fish smoking and bread baking oven. After all, since summer, guests of Einkehr have enjoyed freshly smoked trout and char from our very own fish pond. Guests also have the chance to use the smoking oven at special times every Monday and Thursday. Anyone who doesn‘t want to eat the fillets or entire fish right away, can take them home vacuum-packed.

Cuisine from epicurean host

Alpe-Adria cuisine. So it comes as no surprise that the successful epicurean host is the number 1 restaurant in Bad Kleinkirchheim according to Tripadvisor.

From lederhose to a dégustation menu When it comes to the weekly programme, you don‘t want to miss lederhose Wednesday with ”Quetschn music“ or the torch-lit excursion with horses and ponies to camp fires, whether in the summer or winter. A Stelzn and Ripperl (pork knuckle and ribs) feast on Friday is the perfect way to wind up a holiday or the dégustation menu spanning various wines, which is famous in Bad Kleinkirchheim and beyond.

Instructions: Madeira sauce: Caramelise the white sugar in oil until light brown, then we add in the finely chopped onions and the carrots cut into pieces, celery roots and parsnips. Then you add the tomato paste and plum jam. The ingredients will now be lightly browned and brewed with beef broth. Then add the bay leaves, juniper berries, peppercorns, a small amount of thyme, rosemary and salt. Once half of it has boiled away, the broth is brewed with the Madeira wine and boiled for another 10 minutes. Then strain the broth and it will bind with some cornstarch. As a finishing touch, a few drops of brandy and a shot of Madeira wine are added.

Experiences are guaranteed – whatever you decide on!

Dauphine potatoes: Boil the potatoes in salt water until they have been cooked through, then purée them. Once the puréed potatoes have cooled down somewhat, add butter, e.g. yolk, flour and nutmeg. Mix the egg white, which has been whipped up, with a small amount of chives and ground white pepper and add it to the potato mixture. Fill the entire mixture into an icing bag and make little rosettes on a greased tray, coat with egg yolk and bake in the oven.

Cocktail-Tip: ”Trattlers Trick“

Quickly brown the mixed wild mushrooms in butter on high heat.
