This treasured guest house at the entrance to the Wachau Valley, owes its reputation mostly to its exceptional food.


Martin Pritz reigns as the boss of the kitchen, following the footsteps of his mother who is famous for her intuitive way of cooking regional specialties. Nowadays guests come from near and far to indulge in culinary delights at the »Schwarzer Bär«. Although Martin emphasizes family tradition, he loves to make excursions into the new world of lighter, more creative cuisine, enriched by his special interest and expertise in fish and game.


Kitchen times: 

  • Monday – Friday: 11 am – 2 pm & 5 pm – 9 pm

Our wine cellar is our latest jewel. Under the age old arches of the wine cellar, we do not only keep the pick of the bunch from the Wachau, also a selection of specialities from around the world.

Whoever does not drink wine,
misses a certain indulgence,
although whoever drinks the wrong wine,
deprives himself and others of such indulgence.

He who drinks wine, sleeps well.
He who sleeps well, does not commit sin.
He who does not sin, shall be blessed.
He who drinks wine, shall be blessed.
