Haus Steirer
am Kaiserwald

The house

Our house is located in Premstätten near the provincial capital of Graz in the beautiful scenery at Kaiserwald in western Styria, attached to the bike path "Erzherzog Johann". To its south is the village of Dobl, on a hill close by is the building of the dobl transmitter and the Gjaidhof castle - formerly a hunting lodge of the Habsburgs.

Around the house are lush hay meadows, an orchard with walnut trees and plenty of fresh air to breathe. In the nearby pine grove with two giant oaks cavort countless birds and it also happens that once in a while a few deer, rabbits or storks can be seen.

In the house garden grow lettuce, herbs, vegetables and runner beans that can be served as a salad with pumpkin seed oil, which is a local speciality.  From the terraces to the south you have a wonderful view on the Kaiser Forest and on the the distant Kainachtal. Since both terraces are covered and weather proof, you can enjoy their comfort as early as in early spring time up to the time of late autumn.

A public bus arrives in front of the house and takes you in half an hour to the city center of Graz. You can reach Thalerhof airport by car in about 10 minutes, just a few minutes by car will take you to the expressway and slip roads of Phyrn A9 and the South motorway A2.

About us

The region

Four generations of our family have lived in this house in the “Neue Welt”, which is the name of this district by Premstätten. Back in the days, our ancestors bought the property and used it to operate a farm and an inn.

Even today, the field on our property is managed and cultivated by us, Fritz und Roswitha Steirer, with the support of our three sons. We mainly grow oil pumpkins, from whose seeds the delicious pumpkin seed oil is obtained, with which salads and a variety of other foods are refined.  We offer the carefully cleaned pumpkin seeds also in its natural form as well as salted and roasted.  Also very popular are triggered walnuts that grow in our own walnut trees and that can be eaten plain or processed into cakes and pastries.
