Dine & celebrate at the Kölblwirt Inn
Styrian hospitality, vibrant and up-to-date
Because it is a hub for alpine sports, Johnsbach’s guests share a common trait: they arrive hungry. Those on their way back from a long ski tour to the Lugauer Mountain already hear the hissing sound of the beer tap. Those descending from the Hesshütte hut are already looking forward to enjoying a refreshing drink on the Kölblwirt terrace. Why don’t you come in and take a seat at the Kölblwirt, where hunger and thirst will be rendered mere memories of the past?
Regional products meet tasty cuisine
To us at the Kölblwirt, this combination comes naturally. We cook with regional and –whenever possible– seasonal products. Crunchy salads are the perfect fit for a hot summer day in the mountains. Hot soups and hearty dishes keep you warm on cold winter evenings. For the preparation of our savoury roasts and the classics of traditional Austrian cuisine, we only use fresh, top-quality meat.
Where does the meat come from?
For over two decades, we have been producing our own “Styria Beef” at our organic farm. Rearing, feeding, slaughtering, butchering – it is all done here. This enables us to serve only the highest quality meat, and you will taste the difference. We produce our Styria Beef on our own organic suckler-cow farm, which means that the calves remain with their family and suckle their mother’s milk. Grazing is an essential and compulsory part of this type of farming. Our “Kölbl-calves” spend their summers on the Kölblalm mountain pasture.
We know how to celebrate
Those who know the people of Johnsbach also know that we find reasons to celebrate anywhere and anytime: indoors, outdoors, in our house, behind our house, near our house or way up on the Kölblam. It is a mere question of organisation and the willingness to have a good time. Would you like to celebrate with us? We will gladly help you organise your event, create your individual menu and design the event in a way that will make your guests fondly remember your celebration for a long time.
We could start with a welcome drink at the Kneipp trail of Johnsbach. Afterwards, we could take you on a stroll to the Kölblwirt, create a few unforgettable memories by the open fireplace or the brazier, before we would serve you a delicious meal in the generous ballroom or the cosy “Stube” part of our restaurant. In the summer, you can complement your celebration with a hike to the Kölblalm, where you can savour home-made, regional delicacies, before we would invite you back to the Kölblwirt to enjoy the final hours of your event.
Saying "Yes!" in the mountaineering village
Would you like to say “Yes!” in a most romantic way, surrounded and witnessed by high mountain peaks? If you do, then Johnsbach is the perfect place for you to tie the knot. The beautiful Johnsbach church is a marvellous venue to exchange your wedding vows. Just next door, only a few footsteps away, the Donnerwirt Inn awaits you with a champagne reception, before you and your guests walk or drive to the Kölblwirt. Just like the church is the perfect place to get married, the Kölblwirt is the ideal venue to celebrate your union. Those who want to take their marital duties seriously right from the beginning are warmly invited to check into one of our cosy rooms. Could there be a better way to start a marriage? And when you fondly look at your wedding photos a few months later, remembering the best day of your life, don’t forget that christenings are also one of the Kölblwirt’s fortes.
