Animal husbandry is a beloved tradition here. Agricultural and livestock production has been practised in Kühtai and at Jagdschloss Kühtai from the 13th century to today. Graf Carl zu Stolberg-Stolberg was an enthusiastic breeder of Tyrolean Grey. A very sturdy cattle breed, Tyrolean Grey are well-adjusted to high alpine regions. Many medals at the stable door show the quality of Graf Carl zu Stolberg-Stolberg’s breeding establishment. We continue this tradition because the property is perfectly suited as grazing land. The whole area comprises 18 hectares where in the summer months about 20 high-quality warmblood broodmares and their foals graze right next to Angus cattle and 2 ponies that live here all year round.
Greetings from Emperor Maximilian
In the times of Emperor Maximilian, Jagdschloss Kühtai was a farm in the middle of an imperial hunting ground. Animals also had a central position at the Jagdschloss of Leopold and Claudia de Medici. The stables from those times largely still exist now. Next to it, there are the “Hofzimmer” – beautiful double rooms with farmer’s wardrobes and broad planks.
