Time out on the Mühlbergalm
You are in a host-not an inn. That's what Thomas likes to tell his guests before he even asks for their drinks. In Lederhosen and checked shirt he serves all those who have made their way to the Mühlbergalm and are rewarded there with a fantastic view over Kössen. In the background, the Kaisergebirge rises majestically from the deep blue sky. Thomas runs with the help of a kitchen fairy the Jausenstation- he is a cook and waiter in one and above all: the host.
Dropouts among themselves
For many years he worked as a district director in the insurance industry. He spent his days in offices and on the motorway between Munich and Rosenheim. Then he had enough. After thirty years, Thomas quits the service and fulfilled his lifelong dream seven years ago with the opening of the Mühlbergalm.
He is a classic dropout and the "get off" he wants to allow his guests. For a few hours they can come to him on the Mühlbergalm and look down from the beautiful sun terrace, down to the valley and the life left there. The deceleration makes it clear that the world will continue to turn. Seen from the mountain, many a problem seems to be small.
Sometimes you can hear the silence on the Mühlbergalm - this moment of calm is not only good for the soul. Also for the physical well-being is best taken care of on the Mühlbergalm. The small menu comes up with all sorts of cold but also warm dishes.
Soup pot and Brettljause
Thomas Bacon and cheese breads, the Mühlbergalmbrettl or black bread with lard are served in a good mood. If the hunger is a bit bigger, it may be a pair of Frankfurter or Debreziner sausages. In the winter days, the hot soups are very popular: pea and frittate soup warm the stomach and thus the heart.
The cakes are baked by Thomas personally, he was already a passionate hobby baker. The recipes are from his 97-year-old mother. With the reopening of the Mühlbergalm in August 2011, he has fulfilled a lifelong dream.
G'schmackig and regional
Thomas purchases the output products from producers in the immediate vicinity. Many of them are also part of the Kaiserweis brand and contribute to regional diversity with their products. Sausages and bacon come from the butcher Gründler in Kössen, cheese and butter come from the dairy Danzl, also Kössen, bread and pastry Thomas buys at the bakery Loder in Walchsee. Thomas knows that his customers appreciate the high quality and outstanding taste of locally produced products. *To link? Yes
The innkeeper is especially proud of his beer selection: on his cards he collects hand-picked beers from small private breweries. For example Schönramer, Unertl and Boisei, just to name a few. Decisive is always the taste: And that of Thomas. He runs his inn on his own behalf and only wants to serve products that taste good to him. He always has a cheeky saying on his lips - and the guests love him for it.
Hike to Mühlbergalm
The Mühlbergalm is located in a true hiking paradise in the Kaiserwinkel and is open all year from 10.30 to 17.00. Closed on summer and winter Tuesday and Wednesday. In bad weather, it is advisable to take a look at the Internet, as the snack station in this case sometimes remains closed.
In summer hikers frequent the snack station, recently many cyclists. The Taubensee can be reached on foot in about 60 minutes. It lies between the two peaks Rauhe-Nadel-Kopf (1.266 meters) and Sonnwendköpfle (1.278 meters) in the border area of Tyrol and Bavaria.
In winter, the Mühlbergalm is a true gem - not only the hut, the sun terrace is open all year round: sitting in the warm winter sun, the view of the valley is no less impressive than in summer. Even in winter, the Alm is easily accessible by car.
