Some things can't be taught.
You can call it talent, passion, aptitude or calling.
Amrausch chef Josef Juritz stands for the very special G'spür with which he delights his guests. That's why his two great passions are hospitality and stepping on the gas. With his team of almost 30, he has developed his own style of guest service over the past 20 years. Because this very special mixture of attention, attentiveness and unobtrusive restraint, that has the wine and cheese sommelier and serving master just in the already quoted "Gspür".
To be a host is something Josef Juritz was literally born with, as he grew up in a renowned Carinthian gastronomy business and graduated from the hotel management school in Bad Hofgastein. His professional path led him to numerous luxury hotels at home and abroad. Even at the young age of 20 he was able to win gold medals at numerous international competitions. The absolute highlight was gold at the Professional Olympics in Prague in 1990.

My favorite places:
"A hike to the Wöllaner Nock: The view into the 4 bordering countries Slovenia, Italy, Salzburg and Styria gives me strength."
It's all about that little extra smile and always being able to read a few wishes from your guests' eyes, remembering their favourite wine - and even after a year still knowing who likes their coffee black and extra strong, their mineral water sparkling or still. We say "Gästegspür" to that.
My contribution to your culinary enjoyment
After numerous experiences at home and abroad (cruise ships and many more), Peter has been enchanting our guests with his creations for 10 years as the head chef at Almrausch. During this time he also completed his training as a master chef. His goal is to conjure up a culinary surprise for our guests every day. In addition to his work at the Almrausch, he is also responsible for the coordination of culinary events (for example: Captains Dinner at Lake Millstätter See, alpine brunch at the Strohsackhütte, theme evening buffets, and much more).
My characteristics and credo
Pure quality orientation: "Guests at the Almrausch should experience culinary delights every day."
My favourite place
"A walk with the hotel dog Lucky to Obertweng or to St. Oswald and swimming in the Millstätter See - a wonderful feeling."
