Wildkräuterhotel Steinschalerhof ****

Rabenstein, Niederösterreich

The Steinschalerhof in Warth (Rabenstein) is a well-known and popular conference hotel close to St. Poelten, the provincial capital of Lower Austria. Our hotel has achieved a good reputation through its sophisticated Steinschaler cuisine that utilizes wild herbs from our very own gardens.

The Steinschalerhof complex is arranged around an old country house, the Vierkanthof, and is surrounded by nature, the Steinschaler Gardens and Ponds. In the course of time, a southern wing, the South Garden House, has been added to this building, also with much nature around. Our offer is complemented by garden and log houses, a sizeable earth cellar called the Mostinum and the apartment house Königswiese.

Steinschaler Nature Hotels unite coziness with local and regional food and drinks, nature right outside the door with modern conveniences in the rooms, resulting in the already quite widely appreciated Steinschaler hospitality.

Holidays at the Steinschalerhof

The Pielach Valley lies – quite conveniently situated – to the south-west of St. Poelten, and has evolved under the trademark “Valley of the Dirndl” into a proper holiday region. Spending your vacation in the Valley of the Dirndl today means relaxation for body, mind and soul.
If you like walking or hiking, or maybe would like to swim in a clean river, you are in the right place. If you want to learn about regional and genuine products, you are in the right place, too. And should you be looking for a relaxing vacation for the entire family including your children, with lots of animals and many an adventure, with us, you are in the right place again. Only if you are into crowded beach parties, will you look for them here in vain.

The Steinschaler Gardens

The Steinschaler Nature Gardens and Ponds are the fruits of our meanderings into permaculture and of our deliberate plan to have a lot of nature nearby. We consider this area to be so important that we have devoted a separate chapter to our gardens.
We are not offering you exotic flowers from greenhouses, but many almost forgotten, regional flowers, shrubs, trees and above all, wild herbs. Plants that in some places are regarded as infamous weeds are gently nourished in our garden beds and then also invited into our cuisine.
The Steinschaler gardens go almost seamlessly over from the ornamental gardens created for those seeking relaxation into the production gardens for our own purposes. Maybe it is no coincidence then that our guided tours of the gardens

Steinschaler Cuisine

One of the secrets of our success is the Steinschaler cuisine. Our slogan here is the same as in general: “Tradition and common sense”. We have developed our very own style, based on our many regional suppliers and our gardens. Something that would have seemed impossible only some years ago, has now become the rule: a cuisine around wild herbs in a four star hotel!
Nature Hotel Steinschalerhof´s kitchen has been using wild herbs intensively and systematically since 1998. What we call wild herbs are local wild plants and half-forgotten semi-traditional plants that have not yet been subjected to breeding for higher yields. They are therefore richer in various kinds of ingredients and vitamins. In all the years since then we have learned a lot about wild herbs, their health effects and their possible use in the kitchen, and we are also more than ready to share this knowledge if you wish in the form of cooking courses. are booked more and more frequently, each and every year.
