Description: In 1999/2000 the Alte Schmiede was built to be an outstanding mountain and ski restaurant with 400 seats, which is open in summer and winter. It belongs to the hotel Krallerhof. In 2008 the Alte Schmiede was extended to accomodate up to 550 guests. Decorated with different awards, the Alte Schmiede is certainly one of the most unique restaurants in the mountains. The focal point is the gallery with a mill from 1885. Lovingly restored, this unique mill still grinds today. Moreover there is a skimuseum in honour of Sepp Altenberger sen. Both, the AsitzBrau and the Alte Schmiede, are ideal starting points for hikes and mountainbike tours. Furthermore, it is a popular spot for concerts, events and tvproductions.

“A destination Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Why can't the French provide as good mountain Restaurants as this? Six of us had Two meals here. The food offered which is the standard Austrian offering plus Pizzas (not sampled but looked good) was consistently excellent the only minor quibble being the Ribs were a little overcooked. The Service was attentive, If anything the food came out of the kitchen too quick so don't place your order too soon after arriving. The building itself was almost worth a visit in it's own right with the working water wheel, toilet museum in the gents loo, old photos, old shoes and boots on the upstairs roof plus much much more. We will return!

“Good Lunch Stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Ok place for a lunch break whilst skiing. Austrian Kitchen served quickly in nice surroundings. Went up after dark but it was disappointing and to be honest there are far nicer venues in Leogang to try.

“Plan your ski day around this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

Beautiful mountain restaurant probably the best I've used in 25 years skiing, lovely old interior with ski museum upstairs and original working mill wheel inside and out. Excellent food delivered swiftly even when full, smart and friendly staff. Check out the 'toilets from the past' display in the gents!! This place sets a new standard for mountain ski restaurants and is above the excellent slopes at Leogang - plan your day around a visit here!
