Look forward to menus full of delicacies that will broaden your culinary horizons and convince yourself that doing without animal products whether for ethical, health or environmental reasons does not mean doing without pleasure! On the contrary: Superfoods, regional and seasonal products from our perma garden and the refined interplay with aromatic spices will really spoil your taste buds. Gourmets with a penchant for desserts may also enjoy sweet delicacies from our patisserie for sensual taste experiences that will literally melt in your mouth.
During the whole month of September, we at Falkensteiner Balance Resort Stegersbach are putting an even stronger culinary focus on plant-based nutrition. As a hotel that consciously addresses the issue of sustainability, we already make sure to offer a wide range of delicious vegan dishes. In September, however, we want to turn the tables and make veganism not the alternative on the menu, but the "conventional" diet without meat products and dairy. Why, you ask? Because this lifestyle not only benefits people, animals and the environment, but also offers incredible taste experiences as well, which we don't want to deprive you of!
In addition to these culinary delights, we also offer a month-long exciting program on the subject of veganism and its rich diversity, which will be equally suitable for open-minded newcomers and full-time vegans. From cooking classes to lectures on nutrients or veganism in elite sports to tours of our sustainable permaculture garden, readings or yoga and mindfulness workshops: we look forward to providing you with a wonderful vacation with added value. In many ways.
