We, Roswitha and Michael Fritz, are the hosts of a traditional inn located in the very centre of Aigen im Ennstal, only a five minutes walk from Putterersee. This place has existed for over 155 years, though it can now hardly be compared to its beginnings.
In 2009 we took over the familybusiness with joy and energy led by long experience in the field of gastronomy and tourism. From the beginning our aim has been to find an ideal solution, made to measure for every individual guest.
The new size of the business enables us to be flexible enough to meet the demands of our guests in a professional way, without losing the warm atmosphere of a family run business. Our endeavours are accompanied by blood, sweat and tears to make our customers feel at home.
The new hall gives a clear demonstration of our concept - to adapt to different requirements in an optimal and still relaxed way. A clever arrangment of rooms and furniture guarantees that wedding parties, members of seminars and dance courses feel equally at ease. Our inviting guestrooms and our excellent cuisine complete the overall picture.
Traditional cuisine is high ranking in our á la carte restaurant. We delight in presenting the richness of Styrian dishes, especially from our region. High quality- and always fresh producs from our local farmes turn dishes into a culinary feat. The fact that we were awarded the AMA seal of quality proves our continuous strive for high quality standards.
To continue the long tradition of our house is one of our top priorities. Stoa'n Essen celebrates its 30 year anniversary this year. More and more people enjoy preparing their own meals on a red hot stone plate. The traditional St. Martin's Day Goose dinner in November is exclusively made from geese reared on our own premises. Being a member of "Ennstaler Weidegans" (grazing geese) guarantees highest quality.
Inspite of all our innovations we are still proud to be the homebase for local leagues and unions We feel honoured to be part of their culture. Many societies of Aigen use our hall as a meeting place or gather in locations especially adapted for their needs. Meetings, events, painting courses, training courses for to-be hunters, dancing courses of all sorts, everything takes place on our premises.
