From an experiment with a self-built smoking oven for three trout, grew a highly renowned business that is popular across all retailers and the restaurant industry in Austria. Over the past twenty years, the product portfolio has grown far beyond trout, and now includes salmon, carp, salmon-trout, and specialty fish products. Kulmer Fisch is known for quality, regionality, and flexibility. As an ASC, MSC, and IFS certified business, Kulmer Fisch is at the top of the Austrian fish production industry. The continuance of the four-generational family operation is guaranteed by the work of the son-in-law Gernot, and three daughters: Silvia, Sophie, and Elisabeth.
Approximately 80 kilometers away from the Kulmer restaurant, the Kulmer Family runs Villa Thalhof, a bed-and-breakfast in Bad Gleichenberg. Villa Thalhof turned into a second home for Franz Kulmer during his studies. Because traditions and family are highly valued in the Kulmer family, Franz and Anna decided to take over the operations after the previous owner retired. Today, Villa Thalhof glows with its original splendor, and with twelve newly-renovated rooms, it offers its guests a peaceful place to regain their energy. Villa Thalhof is an ideal destination for short visits or longer stays for students and retirees.
