They still exist - those inns that uphold the culinary heritage of their region. Gasthof Prankl in Spitz undoubtedly belongs to this elite circle. The former shipmaster's house, which is around 500 years old and has a charming architectural history, has been run as an inn since 1680. For several generations, the Prankl family has stood for a pleasurable experience in the Krems area. Whether in the inviting parlours, in the idyllic garden or on the terrace with a view of the Danube flowing by - Birgit and Martin Prankl's Wachau inn scores with elegance and style.

The restaurant has been awarded two toques in Gault Millau, two Golden Forks in Falstaff and one star in A la Carte. Whether meat, fish, vegetarian or vegan - the excellent kitchen team strives for a rich variety for every taste. Mainly local ingredients are used. Seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown on the farm, while the owner Martin Prankl collects mushrooms from his secret spots.

Elegant house with exquisite cuisine

Local and unusual dishes are offered for company and family celebrations in the cosy Stüberl, including wedding receptions - with agape in the house garden on request. The tempting Wachau wine offer is another reason to visit Gasthof Prankl.
