Culinary & Gastronomy

pleasure for body and soul

In the "Kleines Vorwerk", you can taste the Erzgebirge in all its depth and flavor. Composed according to the guidelines of the Slow Food movement – regional, seasonal, and fresh – the first 4-star inn in Saxony creates its menu with style and imagination for discerning guests. Our restaurant is open daily from 11 am.

Old Saxon inn "Kleines Vorwerk"

Altsächsischer Gasthof Kleines Vorwerk

As the first 4-star inn in Saxony, the high-quality cuisine at the inn of Kleines Vorwerk Saya spoils every palate. Much of what is served on the tastefully furnished restaurant's table is produced directly here - from mountain herbal tea from the own herb garden, sweetened with homemade honey, to lamb and juicy steak from the Highland pasture cattle. Here you can taste the Erzgebirge in all its depth and spiciness, creatively prepared for discerning guests. Regional, seasonal and fresh - following these guidelines of the Slow Food movement, the Altsächsischer Gasthof composes its menu.

In winter, cozy up by the fireplace and enjoy Raclette or Fondue to end the day, in summer, let your gaze wander over the Erzgebirge with a magnificent view and enjoy seasonal delicacies in the rustic dining room or winter garden in a cozy atmosphere: The Culinary Calendar of Kleines Vorwerk leaves nothing to be desired.

Interests: I am a family person and I love nature. After many years in a upscale hotel in the Mosel region, I returned to my hometown in 2019. I live in Teplice, Czech Republic, and I enjoy incorporating Bohemian influences into traditional Erzgebirge cuisine. I have a special interest in historical culinary practices. Stay tuned to see what historical recipes I bring to life at Kleines Vorwerk!

This is what I offer you: Traditional, rustic cuisine with Bohemian influences, made with the finest local products for you.



In our "Vorwerk-Genusshütte - the smallest restaurant in Saxony" you can enjoy fine dining in a rustic-modern atmosphere in a very small group of up to four people. Let your gaze wander over the valley to the Ore Mountains while our chef cooks for you directly next to your table at the wood stove.
