Inn and recreational facilities

The Karl-Wirt is located right after the Weizklamm at the entrance to the Almenland in St. Kathrein am Offenegg. It combines Styrian cuisine with cosiness and good entertainment. The large facility makes the inn ideal for family celebrations, company parties, excursions and events of any kind in eastern Styria. The Häusler family is especially proud of the Almenland fish. They are raised in their own fish ponds. Naturally the rainbow and brook trout are served at the inn and can be bought at the farm.

The inn also features recreational facilities with a bowling alley, go-cart track, shooting gallery and much more. The Karl-Wirt is accessible for people with disabilities, child-friendly and an ideal destination even in bad weather.
Starting in May, a fully renovated show mill and show ponds with larch smoker will be ready for viewing, among other things. The Gasthaus Karl-Wirt is located at the start of the Mühlental Wanderweg.
