    About Us

    325 years of history - come home to us
    Welcome to Steinbachhof in Rauris!
    Come alive: Our farm comes alive, the minute it senses some sign of life on it: Children laugh, run and play, parents chat, grandparents narrate their stories, dogs jump about on the meadows.
    Traditionally farmhouses are "houses for generations", a place which the young and the old call home. More than this, it is an abode, where both generations are indispensable so that life goes well.
    Being there: 3 generations live in our farmhouse. Being there for you, keeping our eyes and ears open for your desires and needs and for guaranteeing you the loveliest time in the year: Your holiday in the Austrian mountains in the Hohe Tauern National Park!
    Fastidious: Keeping traditions alive and creating new traditions. Our farm is over 300 years old. The stones in its strong walls on the ground floor were hand picked and artistically arranged. The wood on the first floor was manually carved. We as a family vitalize this farm. Preserving the old and making room for the new.
    Holiday at the highest level: 4 flowers is the highest distinction awarded by "Farm Holidays" for the best facilities, furnishings and quality of service. The Steinbachhof farm is very proud of these 4 flowers:
    The holiday apartments Rettenegg and Seidlwinkl are newly renovated and furnished and are fitted with several amenities to make your holiday at Steinbachhof comfortable and enjoyable. From the guest play area through to the spacious parlour on the ground floor, right up to the children's playground there is enough space for socialising and for enjoying periods of seclusion as well.
    Flexible:Because every family has different needs, it is important for us to be flexible. We cater to individual expectations related to booking and flexibility in respect to furniture, to find a suitable place for everyone.
    With all your senses: During your time at Steinbachhof you will see, hear, smell, taste, feel and most importantly - play! My husband, an expert in forestry and I, an expert in kindergarten and Montessori education, look forward to having you enjoy your holidays here with all your senses! From explorers in nappies to the investigators in the stable, the forest and the wild animals.

    Welcome to the Steinbachhof!
    Familie Loitfellner


    At Steinbachhof we milk twice daily, in summer and winter. Why don't you try doing it yourself? Or at least take a sip of fresh milk - something you will get nowhere else.
    Early in the morning the hens begin to cluck. That's when they lay their eggs. Look into the nest, who knows you might even get to pick some warm and fresh eggs for breakfast.
    As a farmer and expert in forestry, Franz has a good knowledge of everything that is edible in the forest: Daisies and dandelions, nettles and sorrel...
    Do you want to come along sometime and pick out your salad fresh from the meadow yourself?
    Those looking for an easy way out can get their herbs and berries from us.

    Bread service: Because your holiday should begin in a lazy, relaxed fashion, we offer our guests a fresh bread roll service. You can also ask for milk, butter and fresh jams along with this!

    It's quite likely thatour donkey Antonia Lilly will be the first to greet you as you enter the stable. She loves being petted and is forever hungry. You can even ride her!
    In winter our cows are in the shed, several calves are born and you may actually witness a baby calf being born.
    In summer only our dairy cows and the youngest of the calves remain in Steinbachhof. The young male cows are at Rettenegg alpine pasture (yes, that's why our holiday apartments have the names they do).
    We can visit them there, to check that everything is fine. Rettenegg is a hiking and berry paradise. Most of the visits to Rettenegg usually end with appetising dishes made from blueberries.
    The older calves remain with us in the mountains. We regularly feed them salt and grains, you may also help us here.

    Some of the children's favourite animals are in the enclosure for small animals: Our rabbits and the guinea pigs. Cabins and toys are built for them throughout the year. They simply love dandelions. And of course the sheds need to be cleaned out and the hay spread out again.

    Ourhens and turkeys love it if you feed them grass, grains or leftovers.

    It goes without saying that our animals also give us something in return. You may taste the fresh milk directly in the milk cabin or savour the fresheggs for breakfast in the morning.

    The farmer Franz gets food for the animals with a tractor daily - if you want you may - with his assistance - steer the tractor or even drive the tractor yourself!

    So that you get a complete feel of stable work, we also have boots and waterproof farm clothes in different sizes.
    We have even found something for the mamas and papas!
