Inn and leisure center

The Karl-Wirt is just behind the Weizklamm at the entrance to the Almenland in St. Kathrein am Offenegg. Here Styrian cuisine is combined with cosiness and good entertainment. Due to the large rooms, the inn is ideal for family celebrations, company celebrations, excursions and events of all kinds in Eastern Styria.

The Häusler family is particularly proud of their own Almenland trout. The rainbow trout are of course served in the inn or can be bought "on the farm" and in the Häusler market café.
