"Steckerlfisch" and ribs at the Hotel Hofwirt

Sunday-fun of a different kind for the entire family!

At monthly intervals, delicacies of a different kind are offered in Seckau, opposite the beautiful Abbey. Like every year, Steckerlfisch (fish grilled on a stick in the traditional way) and ribs are thrown on the grill and served to guests in the shade of ancient chestnut trees.

On the sticks are freshly caught trout from Seckau’s own farm. Fed and raised by Robert Michael Hoffelner, they grow up in clear creek water at the foot of the Seckau Tauern mountains. The quality of his fish is testament to his efforts to raise them in an ecological way appropriate for their species. They are absolutely delicious! They are served with crunchy salads.

Classic ribs or, to be more precise, spareribs are part of every traditional barbecue and have been popular in Austria for many years. Hofwirt’s kitchen staff barbecues the ribs just long enough for them to be juicy yet crispy. On the side, they serve jacket potatoes and sour cream with herbs.

On sunny days, the grill is set up under the chestnut trees. Thus, mouth-watering scents greet you when you arrive to give you an idea of what awaits you. Even bad weather doesn't stop the kitchen staff from throwing its delicacies on the grill.
