These products are manufactured in Osttirol, contain 50 % of raw materials from the Hohe Tauern National Park region and thus qualify for the official National Park seal.



The Bödenlerhof is situated at 1,220 metres above sea level at Hochberg in Nussdorf. Here is the home of the Lugger family with their laying hens that can enjoy the outdoor nature whenever weather permits and have plenty of room to pick and scratch. Their diet is carefully monitored to ensure that the hens have different types of grain, mountain hay, fresh grass and water. No wonder that the “Osttiroler HochBerg-Ei” (East Tyrol mountaintop eggs) from the Nussdorf National Park community taste so delicious!

However, this ‘liquid gold’ does more than just delight our tastebuds when spread on bread. Honey is capable of so much more. Since time immemorial it has been successfully used in many areas of naturopathy, including in the treatment of bruises, to heal wounds or treat colds.
