“According to the philosophy „nature is freedom“ the guest finds a social environment, and enjoys special steaks, fish, vegetables of the grill, but also vegan and vegetarian specialities.” Forsthofalm
The name of the restaurant KUKKA was chosen in reference to Emmi Widauers homeland Finland. From the Scandinavian KUKKA is translated „flower", and the restaurant considers every person as a flower. Every flower is different, an individual, something special, and so are the guests, employees and suppliers.
The hotel uses not only food of the local farms (from which 70% come from biological cultivation) but also processes plants like stinging nettles, moss, wild herbs, mountain hay, mushrooms and berries which grow directly before the door.

“Before long, long time ago when one found on Forstalm nothing except marvellous Alpine grasslands, we came along day by day on the way to the alp to look after the cows, goats and sheep.”
1972 was the year of birth of the Forsthofalm, built only with the help of friends, there were only 40 seats and no guest-rooms.
Eight years later the street was developed and there originated the idea of the illuminated natural toboggan run.
A little later the guest-rooms were developed bit by bit. In 1996 Famile Widauer had to cope with a fire disaster, what had not fallen victim to the fire, was destroyed by the fire-fighting water or the smoke! After one year the new hotel restaurant was rebuilt and renovated.
In 2008 the first wooden hotel was opened in the inhabitant’s of Salzburg country. Today we welcome you in the Holzhotel Forsthof in the midst of a small paradise to participate in our dreams. Enjoy it with us!
