At JUFA Hotels, we serve regional delicacies that are produced almost on our doorstep.
Be on the lookout for products labelled “von hier” (“local”) at our buffets and you will see that our suppliers don’t need to travel far.
A culinary vacation
Your stay with us will be an experience for all five senses. Start discovering your vacation destination at the breakfast buffet! Enjoy typical regional products like the Sura Kees cheese from the Ganahl mountain farm at the JUFA Hotel Montafon*** or heirloom autumn pear juice from Obsthof Schirnhofer in the Pöllau valley in Eastern Styria when you stay at the JUFA Hotel Pöllau***.
Each hotel makes its own jams by hand with fresh fruit and lots of love. And once a year they go up against each other in the “Jam Contest” where a jury selects the best JUFA Hotel jams.
All JUFA Hotels serve the wonderful selection of teas and herbal infusions of Sonnentor, one of Austria’s most successful companies from the Waldviertel region of Lower Austria.
Tradition and innovation
We also support new and innovative regional businesses with our purchasing decisions. Some of our JUFA Hotels procure fish from Michis Frische Fische in the Mürzer Oberland nature park. The proprietor Michael Wesonig even raises saltwater fish sustainably at the fish farm he has set up in a former carpenter’s workshop in Weiz.
Werner Dilly from Windischgarsten uses his grandmother’s dumpling recipes to create delicious Austrian dumplings with potato or curd dough which we regularly serve at the JUFA Hotels Schloss Röthelstein***, Grünau im Almtal*** and Spital am Pyhrn***.
The old Gesäuse-Perle lemonade factory in Admont has been resurrected and produces lemonade that tastes like childhood summers.
Regional and sustainable
Buying from local producers helps to maintain value in the region, secure jobs and strengthen local communities.
Traditional farming and production practices also shape and preserve our beloved cultural landscapes such as high mountain pastures, scattered orchards and vineyards as we know and appreciate them. Short transportation routes also protect the environment.
By buying regional products, we fulfil our commitment to contribute to sustainable development in the regions where we are located. Read more about it in the JUFA Hotels mission statement.
