    The attractions such as fortresses and castles and other cultural heritage sites, make a holiday at Lake Urban a richly varied pleasure.

    The gentle alpine landscape with lush meadows, the hiking and cycle paths in the surrounding area, bridleways and a nearby summer toboggan run guarantee that no one will be bored.

    Splashing, running around and laughing also turns holiday parents into boisterous children again, enjoying their holiday freedom with their youngest.
    This little place on earth is perfect for unwinding and relaxing.
    PLENTY of freedom and activities for children.


    We - your hosts - are farmers, who have specialised in horses. Here you can ride and jump, but also simply enjoy being near the animals. But don't be afraid:
    While "horse-crazy" sons and daughters swing into the saddle,
    parents have the opportunity, of enjoying a holiday in the country and the special
    hospitality on the Gorehof farm.

    Our ponies:

    Our dwarf rabbits and lionhead rabbits

    You are free to  stroke our rabbits or look after them in their outdoor cage. Fresh grass for the rabbits is always required.

    Our kittens

    If you are lucky, just when you are on holiday kittens will have been born on the farm.

    Miauw - miauw!

    You can visit our goats on the goat pasture.
    WARNING!: They bleat the whole day long!

    Our pigs

    Our pigs look forward to your visit in the pigsty and are waiting for you to help feed them.
    Raphael and Elias will show you how.

    In addition, there are also two mini pigs: Hänsel and Gretel - oink!


    Our chickens

    On request, you can have a fresh egg for breakfast every day. You are welcome to help Elias collect them. We like to do this work together in the evening. During the day the chickens need their peace and quiet and do not like to be disturbed.

    Guinea pigs

    The don't like to be taken out of the cage.
    So just stroke them a little when you feed them.

    Chirping young

    Sometimes there are also baby swallows on the Gorehof
    to marvel at - WATCH OUT - be very careful when you go and look at them, then you can see how baby birds are fed by their parents.

    Say "hello" to cows & Co.

    On the neighbouring pastures there are cows, calves and sometimes even a bull to look at.
    You must never enter the pasture because they are not real playmates. There are many animals on the Gorehof to stroke and love.

    Lady, Lilli, Lisa, Dorli and Sultan.

    The ponies are the favourites of all children!
    They are spoilt by everyone with sugar, apples, carrots and bread -
    and of course they enjoy it.

    In our spaciously designed horse riding arena, every child, according to its age,
    learns how to correctly handle our ponies/Haflinger Our riding instructor lovingly supervises
    this interaction between child and horse.There is also a lot of

    Our Haflinger:
