    About Us

    Altitude 455 metres

    Children get big eyes when Santa Claus and his helpers knock on the door! In the run-up to Christmas there is biscuit and fruit bread baking, making Christmas decorations and advent wreaths as well as visits to the Christmas markets.

    New Year's Eve can be spent a little quieter, traditionally with fireworks and the fortune-telling custom of making shapes with molten lead - but still without huge crowds. Weather permitting, you can do pirouettes, play ice hockey, or even simply enjoy walking on the ice on the frozen Holzöstersee lake. If there is a good covering of snow, we organise sack sledging and snowmen building competitions with the children.

    For those who would like real cosiness, we recommend a romantic weekend for two with a bottle of sparkling wine, breakfast in bed, a candlelight dinner and upon reservation, a beer bath.

    A winter without skiing and "hustle and bustle" can also be fun!

    We live in harmony with nature and animals. Children can feel free to express their individuality, learn and discover the unknown.

    Our farm is the home of Bibbi Blocksberg, Lillifee, Hermine Grenscher, and many others. By this, we mean our dairy cows. Petzi our greedy goat, Tinkerbell and Ariell are our two shorthaired sheep,our ducks Gustav and his wifes Funny and Trude ,  Friedrich the big is our minipig, 20 egg-laying hens, Euro is our house cat, and Püppi and Poppa our outdoor cats. Additionally there are many swallows who make their nest in the barn... I can't tell you any more, otherwise there won't be anything new for your to discover;
