About Vulcano Schinkenwelt
Vulcano Ursprung will take you to the origin of taste and show you the world of smoked ham as a sensory realm - with information and experiences embedded within a unique ambience filled with enjoyment. On three stories and across 1.000m², visitors to the world of the finest smoked hams will be captivated as they learn everything there is to know about the secrets behind these nobel delicacies, secrets they can learn first-hand on tours through discrete areas of production, processing, and maturing techniques: From the large smoked ham made of stainless steel at the entrance to the welcoming lobby, the arcadet sidewalk, the pig stalls, and the regional assortment of delicacies to the one-of-a-kind room designed to stimulate your senses with creative exhibits and swinging smoked hams. The adjacent smoked ham bar, the specialities store, and arched cellar area ensure that everything here will appeal to your palate. As a particularly interesting "extra" visitors will be greeted right at the beginning by Vulcana, the symbol of Vulcano, designed and painted by Dominika Kalcher, and whose story can be heard in a film narration by Folke Tegetthoff. The sensory nature of the information will surprise your eyes, ears, nose, and will certainly serve to prepare you for the right taste. Enjoy the origin.

Very mixed view about this one. First you are shown a film which was rather banal. "The piggie looked at the stars and dreamed of a good life with all the good food he could eat" then you get shown the pigs all seemingly contented but very much penned together not free to roam at all. Only a portion of the pigs bred here get used in their products the rest if sold off and after a tasting we had to agree the products are good. No sign of any production facilities here though and butchery is done outside. The meats on sale are very expensive but well packaged and the place is very clean and tidy. Lots of other local products in the shop also, but in the end its a shop.

Had a great tourguide Ivan, who was enthusiastic when telling the story of successful idea of his boss. Being proud of the company where he works, he managed to tell stories of each and every part of their products like a fairytail. Liked the translations, the equipment, the taste of their products!

Here you can experience the whole process from the stables to the finished product. If you ask me this is the best farm I have been and it´s all about the pigs. The pigs live like in an 5 star Hotel. And when you have happy pigs you get the best meat. All products I tasted where delicious and they are also rated in the world top 7 prosciutto Producers.

Huge range of Schinken ()ham), Essig (vinegar), Oel (oils), wines and other goodies. The display of drying & curing Schinken is awesome, as is sitting on the terrace for a tasting platter. Unhurried and with the certain smell of pigs in the background that makes you remember that you are - after all - in a ham production facility.
