​The Mühlviertler Granitlandschaft (granite landscape of the Mühlviertel) provides optimal conditions for a slow growth of herbs and thus guarantees the best quality.
More than 30 organic herb farmers deliver their mountain herbs, which are then used for teas, spices, baths, oils, pillows, etc. that are produced here. Seize the opportunity to visit this facility (5-minute walk away from the Kräuterwanderweg (herbal hiking path)).
