Our Estate

Real. Better.

First-class quality in every respect

…that’s our promise to you. The IMLAUER estate Schloss Pichlarn plays an important role in this. We became a producer ourselves with our estate. From the organic eggs to our own springs and the greenhouse with our own herbs, our own vegetables and fruit: this is quality as we define it. Authentic. Better.

The first representatives of our estate will greet you even before you arrive at the IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn: lush fruit trees adorn the green meadows along the driveway. Pear, plum, apple – some of them bearing old fruit varieties. Many are already there, but many more will follow. The 250 chickens have been there for a long time. They enjoy the wide, open spaces around the 5-star hotel in their mobile chicken coop. Every egg on your breakfast table, in every tasty dish or juicy cake comes from these happy chickens. “Bee happy” is also on the agenda in Pichlarn: our own bees produce the finest honey.

Kitchen garden
and mountain spring water

Salads and aromatic herbs thrive in the 300 m² greenhouse at the IMLAUER estate Schloss Pichlarn. In the future, a small, fine kitchen garden with vegetables, fruit, herbs and berries will make connoisseurs’ hearts beat faster in the revitalised castle gardens. The hotel’s water needs are met by six of its own springs. Crystal-clear mountain spring water gushes out of them. Thanks to this wealth of water, the IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn will be a “Best Water Hotel” in the future. Together with BWT AG from Mondsee, we are developing a concept to mineralise the spring water. In the future, the Pichlarn water will be used as a substitute for conventional mineral water bottles. This saves energy as well as packaging costs. And thanks to the lower transport costs, it is good for the CO2 balance.

Electric drive
and photovoltaics

But that’s not all. We’re also planning a 300 KW photovoltaic system to supply the air heat pumps and the charging station for electric cars. For the additional district heating required, Georg Imlauer would like to have the biomass from the hotel’s own woods processed in the future. The 5-star hotel is already heated exclusively with district heating from the region. Sustainability doesn’t stop at vehicles and equipment. The hotel now only purchases electric company cars and golf carts, and our smaller devices such as lawnmowers or chainsaws also have electric drives. That’s sustainability made in Pichlarn. Authentic. Better.
