    About Us

    Welcome to the Holzknechtalm at the Hubgut in Zell am See!

    Traditional, modern, comfortable – Welcome to the wonderful Holzknechtalm.
    Our chalet lies at an elevation of 1000 meters above sea level in a part of Zell am See known as Thumersbach, in beautiful Salzburger Land. With 160 m² of living space, the Holzknechtalm provides plenty of space for you to enjoy a relaxed holiday in the Zell am See/Kaprun region.

    Our self-catering chalet is lovingly furnished with abundant use of native woods. The chalet features 2 bedrooms with double beds and 2 bedrooms with bunkbeds. Begin your day with a leisurely breakfast in the sunny conservatory. In the fully equipped kitchen, you will also find a big dining table. Meanwhile, a fireplace with corner seating and satellite TV promise hours of cozy relaxation. In summer, our guests are also invited to take advantage of the terrace with lounge-style seating, a kettle grill as well as a fire bowl.

    It isn’t only our guests who feel perfectly at home here on our farm. Our animals lead a very good lifestyle here, too. Guests, big and small, are invited to step into the barn, pet the rabbits, collect the delicious eggs laid by our hens, help bring in the sheep with their little lambs from the field, and experience the marvelous smell of honey and propolis in the bee house.

    We nurture the traditions of the rural community in this mountain world of ours and love nothing more than to share them all with our guests.
    In summer and winter, you can set out from here at the Holzknechtalm on your hiking and biking tours. Lake Zeller See lies quite literally right there at your feet: an ideal opportunity for boating, water sports in various forms, as well as carefree hours spent at one of the lakeshore beaches. And of course, a drive up the Grossglockner High Alpine Road is definitely not to be missed.
    The imposing peaks of the Kitzsteinhorn, the mountain world of the Schmittenhöhe, picturesque Zeller See and the romantic views from the Holzknechtalm of the valley below – good reasons, one and all, to spend your holidays in Zell am See.

    The Miller Family looks forward to seeing you here!

    Welcome to the Holzknechtalm chalet in Zell am See!
    Familie Miller

    We put a lot of love and hard work into running our farm. That’s why we are so happy when our efforts are rewarded. Once the hay has been brought in, the trees have borne fruit in autumn, and we are able to deck the table with homemade and farm-fresh products, what a true delight that is. A joy we also want to share with you, in the form of homemade jams, honey, bread, eggs, bacon, schnapps and liqueurs.

    Our Bees
    We have had beehives on our farm since 2012. Not only do the bees supply us with healthy, good-tasting honey, they also pollenate countless fruit trees and flowers, thereby making a valuable contribution to the natural cycle of things.

    Our Bergschaf Sheep
    The Bergschaf breed originated on the mountainsides of Tyrol and is an ideal “lawnmower” for us, grazing on those meadows that aren’t accessible to us with machines. On average, we have 30 ewes here at the farm, giving birth to lambs in the autumn and springtime.

    Our Pigs
    Our pigs Rosali and Frieda are in “hog heaven” at our farm, especially during the summer months when they have freshly mown grass every single day, and lots of open spaces to “do their thing”.

    Our Hens
    There is no alarm clock in the world more reliable than our rooster. As soon as it gets light, he will begin to crow, sending a clear signal to us that it is time to get up and begin working in the barn. Every day, 7 hens dutifully lay their eggs. Eggs that taste especially good once the farm work is done.
