Come and visit our Kranzbach herb garden and meet our herb expert Susanne Erhart. She has developed a particularly special herb garden in Kranzbach. This has been achieved through hard work and a good knowledge about; the layout of the bed, cultivation methods, rooting plant cuttings, seed extraction and the treatment of the plants.
The kitchen team makes great use of the products from the herb garden – to improve the quality of their dishes and the Spa department uses the ingredients for their treatment programs.
Smell, taste and enjoy the many herbs and plants in our garden. You may tour our herb garden at any time, but please with care and consideration.
A special experience is to have a guided tour with Susanne Erhart. These occur from May to October on Tuesdays and Thursdays (timings according to the Weekly Program).
"The engagement of soil and plants can offer a similar relief and peacefulness to our soul as meditation.“
We harvest the herbs professionally before midday because during this time they have the highest concentration of ingredients.
The harvested flowers and herbs our laid out in Kranzbach to dry. You can follow this process as it happens. The finished products like teas, herbal blends and herbal salts can be purchased at the reception.
Susanne Erhart lives in Tirol and since 2013 operates her own, ‘show garden’.
Her passion has become her profession. She has completed a degree in health promotion, as well as a number of education courses in the use of medicinal herbs and plants. In addition, she has attended many training courses about mixed cultivation, permanent agriculture, cultivation methods and the fermentation of foods. She particularly enjoys the cultivation of medicinal plants and the creation of natural cosmetics.
In Kranzbach she combines all of her experience together and is our expert for the Kranzbach herb and medicinal plant garden.
The elevation as well as the location in Kranzbach provides its own challenges. We are caring for a trial garden, which remains in continual development.
She enjoys informing the guests about the garden. Guided tours of the garden occur according to the weekly program.
