Alpine chive

Allicum schenoprasum

Chives are one of the most known herbs in the world, which should not be missing in any perfectly seasoned beef consommé. Surprisingly everyone is familiar with chive, but hardly anyone is aware about its positive health benefits. For example, chive is reportedly appetizing. This kind of herb is growing fast and should be used at an early stage. Perfect conditions are a semi- shade place as well as calcareous soil.

Alpine chive

Oberlech, Arlberg in July
Great deal of time for romantic summertime! The fresh summer breeze that tingles your nose, rushing alpine creeks are responsible for the soundscape at the Arlberg region which you will perceive as a little day music in your ears: may be seen, touched and admired anywhere you go within the Arlberg region. Lush green meadows and herbs as well as breath-taking views at the mountains invite you to take a seat, linger at the sunny plateau and to start your discovery journey.

Argentinian mint

Mentha piperila

The leaves of the Argentinian mint contain menthol and therefore the taste is perceived as slightly spicy and peppery. Mint has been used for centuries in cuisine and medicine as the ethereal oils do have a positive effect on healing processes. Menthol causes a sensation of cold on skin and mucous membrane and therefore releases people from pain. This undemanding plant should change its position every two to three years.

Argentinian mint

Oberlech, Arlberg in August
The winter is covering this landscape with its white blanket, and in August it shows its full splendour: large and small mountain lakes broadcasting with their sheer breath-taking colour symbiosis of deepest blue hues and shimmering greens competing with the ocean blue skies of that impressive alpine area. Only the blue alpine gentian, the blooming alpine roses, the dragonflies and the trouts are showing that the attribute of Lech is its uniqueness: The magic of nature.

Lovage

Levisticum officinale

Lovage, is also called in vernacular „Maggikraut“, but not home in Austria, as mostly assumed. The Country of origin of this herb is Persia, where it has been already used in the 16th century as aphrodisiac. This eastern- asian herb features fresh aroma, like celery and is an essential herb in our cuisine especially for soups.

Lovage

Oberlech, Arlberg in September
Shorter days, picturesque colours, and the mystical first morning mist, which covers mountain lakes and peaks and being transformed finally into bright sunshine: The September face of the Arlberg shows off with a diversity of colours and a relaxing atmosphere. The early spring breeze is inspiring body, mind and soul; the crystal-clear sight provides views to wildlife such as ibex, capercaillie cock and chamois.

Oregano

Origanum vulgare „Aromatico“

Oregano counts to one of the biggest herb species. Some of them are just grown in Southern Europe, Crete, and Northern Africa. The aromatic scented leaves are not only used for seasoning, they are certainly used for decorative purposes as well.

Oberlech, Arlberg in December
Romantic moments in the Alps, which could not be more beautiful: December in the Arlberg region is one of the most enchanting months. The alpine panorama makes someone feel like living in a postcard - with a remarkable farandole of excitement and relaxation. Nature is showing off with tranquillity, a white blanket covering the landscape, sparkling snow crystals, snow-covered peaks and absolute silence.

Japanese Water Pepper

Persicaria hyolropiper „fastigiatum“

This red-leafed herb is very popular in Japan, but unfortunately has got still far too little attention around the globe. With its sharp and peppery taste, it is ideal for dishes such as sushi, sashimi and tempura. Japanese water pepper should ideally be planted on the river or pond banks, because moist soil is a prerequisite for this strikingly beautiful plant. With its red green marbled leaves, water pepper is a must-have for any garden.

Japanese Water Pepper

Oberlech, Arlberg in January
In January the most beautiful eiderdown in nature spreads out its snow white feathers and covers the Arlberg with an incomparably beautiful winter splendour. Romantic snowfall alternates with a dreamlike sunshine - the winter wraps the landscape in our favourite colour - White. The most beautiful time of the year has begun and with it a special atmosphere of peace, quietness and exciting winter moments.

Savoury

Satureja hortensis

The savoury comes from alpine and cooler regions in the Mediterranean area. The high growing bushes with their narrow, lance-like leaves have a peppery, very spicy taste. The perfect combinations with this herb are beans of any kind. With regards to maintaining the savoury is very straightforward as it prefers firm and slightly damp soil.

Savoury

Oberlech, Arlberg in February
When mountain peaks and harsh edges suddenly get soft lines and shapes: While nature recovers in its well-deserved hibernation, the turns of the skiers draw their magnificent formations into the snow covered mountain world. Breathe in, breathe out and marvel - with the best view, the incredible deep snow and crystal clear air.

Tarragon

Tagetes lucida

Tarragon is a plant that is native in the colder regions of Central Asia and Siberia, and from there it has spread to Arabia as well as Europe. Nowadays the plant can be found in many parts of the world, including even distant areas such as India, America and Turkey. Tarragon is a very popular herb and the main spice of many dishes.

Tarragon

Oberlech, Arlberg in March
Where did nature reserved the best place for you? Of course on the most beautiful white sun terraces in the world. The Arlberg. While far away the ibexes observe the colourful crowd on the slopes, the month of March shows us what it is all about: numerous hours of sunshine, magnificent snow crystal shining and every evening the most beautiful sunsets in red and orange tones you can imagine.

African Blue Basil

Ocimum basilicum „purpurascens“

This variety is a cross of Red Basil and copper Basil, which is originally from tropical regions in Africa. The acerb taste and texture are like the Red basil, the leaf shape of the copper Basil. This type of Basil loves sun; however, it should not be exposed to high temperatures. Recommended would be a windowsill where the morning sun rays pass by as well as a place sheltered from strong winds.

African Blue Basil

Oberlech, Arlberg in April
Do you already hear the soft splash of spring? When it announces itself, and for firn snow lovers as well as sun worshippers to get us on the winter plan? April in Lech means atmosphere of awakening: in a time when the first marmots are getting out of their winter cave, when the slopes are slowly clearing up from snow and nature is preparing itself for an impressive spring festival that couldn't be more beautiful.
