Welcome to the world of herbs

Herbal hiking trail and herbal cuisine at Sonnkogel on the Schmittenhöhe

Freely translated along the guidelines of  “getting back to nature”, this is where herbal cuisine and a meticulously laid-out roundabout trail with thematic boards meet, including a corner to savour.  SEE, TASTE, SMELL and FEEL – young and old are cordially invited to linger awhile on the sunny side of the Schmitten and discover some brand new things. Did you know that  yarrow, according to legend, is purported to protect you from black magic? Or that ribwort is a tried-and-tested antidote for insect bites? Dandelions, nettles, etc. are used to make delicious dishes. At the Sonnkogel Restaurant you can taste your way through a whole series of specialties.

Discover & graze along the herbal hiking trail

From Arnica to Lemon Balm

Am Kräuterwanderweg beim Sonnkogel Restaurant finden Besucher neben wild-wachsenden Kräutern, wie Arnika und Johanniskraut, auch 4 große Hochbeete. Hier gedeihen die Küchen-Kräuter für die schmackhaften Kräuter-Gerichte im Sonnkogel Restaurant. 

Diesen Sommer neu: bei der Geruchsstation Berg-Aromen  lernen kleine und große Nasen die Gerüche von Bergwiesenheu, Lärchenharz und Moosen kennen. 


Das Projekt "Kraut & Ruam – Kräutererlebnis am Sonnkogel" wurde im Sommer 2016 mit dem Salzburger Regionalitätspreis ausgezeichnet.
