The Hüttwirt tavern
The Hüttwirt tavern has been in existence since 1521. According to research from the 1970s, the Hüttwirt is one of the oldest buildings in the region.
In the tavern garden stands the famous ‘Emperor Lime Tree’, the first natural monument in Leogang, planted in 1898 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Emperor Franz Joseph I’s coronation. Soldiers buried a bottle amongst its roots with a dedication inside.
Art has always been very important in the Hüttwirt tavern. All of its guest rooms are decorated with watercolour paintings by Werner Mayer, the late senior boss of the tavern and honorary member of the Leogang Mining Museum Association, who was passionate about watercolour painting.
