With its location in the Alpine Adriatic area, the Villach region is richly blessed with foods and products that could not be fresher. Fish, meat, vegetables, herbs and many other ingredients here come directly from the lakes, forests and meadows, refined with plenty of creative finesse by the imaginative cooks and producers.

Come as a guest, leave as a friend
The KÜCHENKULT venues could not be more varied: the fine regional cuisine is served in a stylish ambience ranging from a historical monastery, an old forge and a dignified county restaurant to a gourmet restaurant and directly on the banks of Faaker See and the Drau. The KÜCHENKULT culinary artists not only have a love of regional and seasonal ingredients in common, but also the fact that they are born hosts full of cordiality and hospitality. So if you arrive as a guest, you will for sure leave again as a friend.
