After studying and apprenticing at such renowned establishments as the Pfefferschiff, Döllerer, Steirereck im Stadtpark and – as absolute highlights – with Isaac McHale at the “Young Turks” in London and Sven Chartier at the “Saturne” in Paris, Philip Rachinger returned to home pastures. Now, together with father, Helmut, who had already made the Mühltalhof a leading gourmet address, he has stirred up quite a culinary furor, which diners can savor in the most scenic setting imaginable, with views of the idyllic weirs along the Gross Mühl.

Philip and father Helmut Rachinger captivate guests with top culinary artistry coupled with a personal commitment to sustainability and an exquisite sensibility for finding the right balance in all they do. Both are completely dedicated to products supplied by the immediate region, from which they conjure up unique creations which encapsulate the flavors of the Mühlviertel with utter refinement. A harmonious complement is provided by a superb selection of wines as well as exceptional fruit juices.
A place that simply couldn’t be more beautiful: right next to the river, surrounded by verdant countryside and wonderfully peaceful. A pure idyll, in other words, to which casual-modern design and a rural touch with a twinkle in the eye provide a cheeky-yet-harmonious counterpoint. Furthermore, the markedly familiar atmosphere instantly provides for a sense of complete comfort. For moments of relaxation, we recommend a visit to “Ira’s Cosmetic and Beauty Oasis”, featuring a relaxation room on the river’s edge, sanarium, steam bath and various wellness treatments.
Close to the Mühltalhof, artist Joachim Eckl has established his HEIM.ART location, with ample space for exhibitions. Wife, Johanna, runs their 300-year-old family business together with her brother, Helmut Rachinger, representing a special symbiosis between hotel and art. For enjoyment upon your return home, the homemade jams of grandmother Walpurga are definitely well worth a closer look.
The Mühlviertel, which the Bohemian Forest connects with Bavaria and the Czech Republic, is an insider tip for explorers and those who enjoy “the finer things”. The “Weaving, Museum & Beer Road” is well worth an excursion, as are first-class art galleries and small, picturesque villages. In addition, close to the hotel you will find the Hacklbauer & Prechtl organic farm shop, the Haslach oil mill as well as small-yet-exquisite pottery shops and other manufacturers.
