Schwaigerlehen-Berngarten is a farmhouse built in traditional Pinzgau style, located in the centre of the charming village of Stuhlfelden, nestling between the Hohe Tauern and the Kitzbühler Alps, run by the Bacher family for four generations. The first written reference to Schwaigerlehen-Berngarten farm dates from 1486.
At the heart of this historic building is the old ‘Rauchkuchl’, a unique type of kitchen common to alpine regions from the late middle ages to the end of the 19th century. Meals are cooked over an open fire, but there is no chimney, so the smoke collects under the ceiling, giving the room its name – literally ‘smoky kitchen’. Very few of these kitchens are still in use. Enjoy the unique opportunity of watching Theresia Bacher prepare a feast for you on her open alder wood fire, just like in the olden days. Arrange your meal with us before you arrive, and she will amaze you with delicious creations, using locally sourced produce.
Whatever the occasion, we will deck out our three dining rooms specially for you and your party of between 20 und 60 guests. Be it a birthday, wedding, christening or a business gathering, make your event special by celebrating it at Schwaigerlehen.
On the two upper floors of the building, five quaint and cosy bedrooms are at our guests’ disposal. After a good night’s sleep, enjoy our lavish ‘Kaiserfrühstück’ – a breakfast fit for an emperor.
The unspoiled scenery surrounding the farmhouse makes it equally ideal for a quiet break or active holiday in the great outdoors. For active nature enthusiasts, the nearby mountains provide endless opportunities for sports and excitement. Please refer to the sections Summer and Winter for more information on these activities. Featuring five bedrooms and the large Bauernstube, our house is also well equipped to cater for seminars and small-scale business gatherings, for which we are happy to provide meals.
Families with children are very welcome at Schwaigerlehen-Berngarten.
