There is an indoor kitchen, whose use is to be coordinated with the kitchen team, as well as an outdoor cooking area with a pizza oven. More info on these will soon follow.

There are some of options for cooking in the castle - but please carefully read the descriptions below to get to know all the possibilities.

Indoor Cooking

There are 2 kitchens in the main castle building (see Venue and maps).

Kitchen 1 upstairs is fully equipped and it is possible to cook for big groups. As we did not set aside funds for broken equipment or appliances, it may be used only by bigger organised groups or camps under the following conditions:

  • You reserve the kitchen for a specified time.
  • You nominate a kitchen lead who takes over the kitchen and takes full responsibility for leaving it in the same or a better condition than you found it when you are finished.
  • You deliver the kitchen clean and in order to the next group or return the keys to [kitchen king/queen].

Currently, the kitchen timetable is organised by Cora and can be found HERE. There is a dedicated kitchen channel (#schlosskitchen) on slack, for organising the kitchen schedule. If you dream of cooking for fellow Schönburners, want to help organising the schedule or existing cooking groups OR want to take responsibility for the kitchen key as wonderful kitchen king/queen, please join the slack channel or leave your contact as comment in the open schedule document.

Kitchen 2 on the ground floor (close to the chapel) is open for use by all participants. There are no pots, dishes or other kitchen utensils (i.e. nothing to lose or break), so please bring your own (self reliance) and of course leave no trace. This is a normal sized kitchen with a stove, oven and a sink.

Note for 2019:
LNT didn't work in 2018 and this kitchen was a mess. A few brave volunteers literally spent HOURS to clean it during strike. The solution? We will CLOSE DOWN the kitchen!

UNLESS … a team of VOLUNTEERS (we suggest at least 3 people) will step up to build a kitchen cleanup task-force, preventing the mess and educating the hungry hippies to LEAVE NO TRACE!

You want to cook indoors? You feel the call to let your inner kitchen fairy out? Then volunteer on slack, on the wiki, via email, … Schloss Schönburn needs you!

Outdoor Cooking

You are allowed to use camping stoves in the camping area. On the castle grounds there is also a large iron charcoal grill, not too far from the castle. To fully fill it, it needs 35kg of coal, which are not included, so you have to bring your own if you want to use it. Of course you can also bring your own grill if you leave no trace.
There is a large, covered fire space as well - which is not dedicated for cooking.

Kitchen Tent

Not every burner has his own cooking equipment or can't take it with him due to luggage regulations on flights. Fear not, the playa provides: The kitchen tent of Salon Leobard will join again. It is a 25m2 six-sided tent and provides 3 dual-flame gas stoves (one stove with 3 and 4 kW flame, two stoves with two 2kW flames). We will have some kitchen tools and some pots and 1-2 pans.
