Run with the Krampus

As we are looking forward to the first weekend of Advent ushering in the holiday season, Halloween is not far behind us. Making sure the dark scary is close and real, are the Krampus and his Perchten, ready to punish misbehaving children who did not qualify for the gifts of Saint Nicholas (get your shoes all clean, December 6th is St. Nicholas day). It makes Santa and his coals look pretty harmless compared to a whopping from the Krampus. According to one Austrian legend, the Krampus has a 12-inch long tongue that he uses to lick naughty children, beats them and carries them off in his sack. The Krampus shows up mainly in the Alpine folklore, he is always hairy and wearing grotesque facial expressions rendered by expertly carved wooden masks and he always has chains or whips on him. He is almost always in the company of the daemonic Perchten, who are very old mythical figures that go back to pre-Christian times. The idea behind it is to scare the bad spirits of winter away so that they...

Exclusive Dining in MariazellerLand

From the finest home grown beef of one of the best Jeunes Restaurateurs in Austria, tucked away in the middle of the forest, to the best trout straight from its habitat in the most charming cottage setting, to century old houses in the center of Mariazell but with all modern amenities with home brewery and memorable whiskey tasting experiences that only Scotland would top, our MariazellerLand has been blessed with some of the most exclusive dining experiences that can't be found anywhere in Austria. So we'd like to present some of these places (in no particular order), some of which are still best kept secrets, who in our humble opinion deserve the qualification of exclusive dining. Try any of them and we promise you won't be disappointed. Drei Hasen - this charming small hotel & restaurant is neatly tucked away below the famous Pirker ginger bread on a side street in the city center. The entire menu is a delight and quality is taken seriously here from the smallest detail of your table...


Halltal is a quiet, idyllic valley surrounded by ancient fir tree woods that stretches along the Salza river from East to West all the way up to the famous pilgrim town Mariazell. The municipality includes the villages Halltal and Mooshuben and also the former logger settlement Walstern. The Salza is known for its crystal clear waters full of trout and also for wild water rafting. Mooshuben lies on top of the hills above Halltal and offers wide meadows and silent forest trails, away from the tourist hype in Mariazell. The natural reserves Hochmoor Rieglermoos in Mooshuben protect the unique wildlife and the few local farms ad an old world charm to the scenery. The spring snowflakes and daffodil meadows in Halltal and Walstern are a rare wonder to behold every spring. In Walstern, on the shores of the romantic Hubertussee stands the Bruder Klaus church, built in 1967. The Arthur Krupp memorial road displays several secular and sacred structures that were built between 1900 and 1930. The...
