Kellerstöckl am Csaterberg (Kohfidisch)

A Kellerstöckl is a building used for agriculture, in this form it occurs primarily in southern Burgenland and in the adjacent eastern Styria .

Kellerstöckl were built on a very sloping slope, with the cellars themselves often being driven far into the slope behind. The name derives from the cellar, the essential part of the building, on which a simple, mostly only one-room floor was built, which served as a living room and bedroom for the workers in the vineyard. This is also the main difference to the wine cellars and press houses in other parts of Austria . The Kellerstöckl were traditionally designed as massive log buildings with clay plaster to ensure the temperatures required for storing the wine. The space under the pointed roof, the floor , served as a storage and drying room for various foods.

The cellars themselves were mostly divided into two parts: the front cellar section was used as a work and press room , while the rear section of the cellar, often lowered by a few steps, was actually the fermentation and storage cellar.

The Kellerstöckl are usually arranged in cellar districts or cellar lanes , but there are also examples of single cellar stoops.

Today, many Kellerstöckl are adapted as holiday apartments or rented out as tourist apartments.

Some of the cellars are under monument protection, for example in Straden (Styria). Kellerstöckl are also located in the listed cellar district of Heiligenbrunn .
