Join us in experiencing the herbal year in cuisine - from wild garlic to fennel - healthy delights with wild vegetables, healing and seasoning herbs.

The herb garden tours take place in compliance with the hygiene concept.

Instead of our herbal gourmet buffet, we offer our guests a fine herbal gourmet menu.

Anyone who fancies cooking with freshly picked herbs must following the course of the seasons. Whilst some herbs are available throughout the summer - such as chives and lovage - others are often only ripe and ready for a limited time. These herbs then determine what is on the menu for a short time.

Early in spring, when patches of snow are still lying the shade and the beds remain stubbornly brown, the wild garlic opens its lush green leaves and signals the beginning of the herbal year with a wild garlic pesto or as a cream soup. The harvest only lasts a few weeks. It is therefore essential to buck up, or wait for next spring.

In summertime, the Mediterranean herbs ripen little by little. Sun and warmth are essential, in order to produce essential oils from basil, rosemary or thyme. The best time for lamb with rosemary, steak Provençal or spaghetti pesto.

A particular speciality are our herby bratwurst sausages. Sulger the butcher produces these speciality sausages exclusively for the Höchsten - from pork from the Jehle farm in Limpach, and herbs from our own herb garden.

Every month, the weekly herbal gourmet menu have a different focus - come with us on a tasting tour through the herbal year.
