    About Us

    Holidays on our child-friendly farm - where children are still allowed to be children

    Our farm is set in the Innviertel region, on the edge of the magical moorlands Ibmer Moor in the municipality of Franking am Holzöstersee, to be more precise. Our farm is located near the moorland lakes Holzöstersee and Höllerersee.

    Our organic farm Pimperlhof is set at an altitude of 455 m. Families with children reign here. The more laughter of children we hear, the better!

    No matter if you’re old or young - fun is at home on our farm! E.g. tractor safari at sunset, adventure stream, hayloft, baking workshop for kids, disco for the little ones, dwarf cinema, angel landing spot, petting zoo, ...

    For our guests’ children, it’s a very special experience to see the cows graze on the pasture, watch them being milked in the evening, pet the small four-pawed friends, feed them and play with them.

    We’ve got a special highlight for food lovers: large pots with different types of herbs which you can use for free to finish off your dishes.

    Find relaxation in the soothing mud bath, walk along the stream or wade through the refreshing water. Or simply unwind in a lounger, read a good book and watch your children play to their heart’s content.

    Countless hiking trails in and around the moorlands leave nothing to be desired. Those of you who’d like to get even more familiar with our region can give it a try at the “farmer’s golf trail”. In total, the trail is 14 km and comprises a variety of holes. There are also interesting museums for all ages. Activities in the close surroundings comprise swimming in one of the 3 lakes nearby or at the many public outdoor pools.

    Sports and outdoor enthusiasts can discover beautiful spots and take in panoramic views on cycle paths and running routes.

    This amount of activities will make you hungry. On our farm, you’re welcome to light a campfire or have a barbecue. Alternatively, the staff in the nearby restaurants will spoil you with culinary delights!

    So, are you in for a holiday on our farm? Simply have a look at our availabilities, pick your favourite dates and contact us!

    We are looking forward to welcoming you!
    Gabi with Hans and family

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