The word permaculture is the combination of permanent and agriculture. In english: sustainable farming.

This type of farming is the contrast to industrial farming, which wants to increase any time the production, the profit and never think about consequences of nature.

The permaculture is orientated in natural systems und tries to translate the agriculture to a cultur with stable and sustainable landuse. The principe is to work ecological, economic and sustainable with using all the resources.

The depleting substances of moor gives the dark colour to the lake water.

Nearby you see the high mountain Preber (2.740 m) – the surroundings offer a lot of nice hiking tours with a lot of alm huts and madows with cows .

Anytime we recommend to take a drink or enhjoy the local food at the Ludl Alm with the great view over the lake. (peeting zoo and childrens playground)

It is important to mention that the moor is very important for the eco balance.  You have high moor and low moor in combination with some influxes . Such a  ecosystem is like a treasure for a region and has to be protected.

Each year – the last weekend in August – there is a festivity at Prebersee – called  „Wasserscheiben-Schießen“ . you have to shoot to a mirror picture in the lake. The water reflects and the shoot is at the end on the banks slice. History books mention this traditional shooting festival first time in 1834.

(Mo-Fr open from 8 am to 12 am, Kemmts eina shop (Mo-Fr from 9am to 12 am and 2 pm to 6pm)


In 2011 the Fötschelfarmer had the idea to built a small cheese factory in his home town. He was many years in Switzerland working in a cheese factory. He wanted to come home and to work with the original product of his home .. the organic milk of his cows. Too, you can bring your milk to the cheese factory and take your cheese some months later home. He is a very creative person and so you can discover different tastes and flavours during the weeks of a year.

The small cheese factory is a must to visit when you are in Lungau, look to the factory and taste the cheese snack. (Mo from 10am to 12 am)

The Mini Molk is one oft he smallest dairys in Austria. Four families try to bring the best quality of milk to the table. The farmer Ottinger-Bauer, David Gruber, family Kocher and Prodinger are the shamrock of Mini Molk.

They are very successful in production of Milk and dairy products. Special is the spelt yoghurt. The spelt is from the field in front of the mini molk.
with your voucher you can taste the spelt yoghourt or any other product of Mini Molk.

Next to the Mini molk is the Ottingmühle located.  They offer a big assortment of grain products in the shop.

The mill exists since the 13th century . till 100 years it is in the hands of family Gruber. The mill wheels never stopped – no they go further to the future any time !
Till the year 1248 the people in Tamsweg can see the brand of Ottingmühle. Over  the time grain is made to flour. From 1kg cereal  the family Martin and Angelika Gruber produce 0,75 kg to 0,85 kg of flour.
The occupation is changed during the years. Nowadays the miller has to have a fine grasp for technical changes and grain. The local people like to bake with such a high quality flour and want to take healthy food.
take your voucher and buy some high quality grain sorts.

Kemmts eina – mia gfrein ins auf enk!“(name is dialect and means  “welcome”)  the shop is an idea of six  organic farmers and from two local producers which offers their products together on the market square of Tamsweg in their own shop.
