Our Slow Food region
Warm springs and sporting talents: the Bad Kleinkirchheim region amidst the Nockberge biosphere reserve at 1000 metres above sea level made a name for itself early on as a health resort and venue for the skiing World Cup. But depsite the international attention, the village community has never forgotten its rural roots. The cows still graze on the mountain pastures and the old farms are still run with dedication by the younger generation.
enjoy conscientiously and responsibly
Over 30 years ago, the Italian Carlo Petrini founded the Slow Food movement to counter the fast food industry. Since then, millions of people worldwide sit down together for a good, clean and fair meal. They take responsibility for conscientious enjoyment and support sustainable ingredients from the region. The aim is to preserve and support biological diversity and taste. Out of conviction and dedication.
