Holidays in a Traditional Mountain Restaurant
Staying in a holiday home next to a mountain farm is your chance to take part in farming activities, peek over the farmers’ shoulders and pitch right in. There’s always some work to do. And there’s always an exciting activity to engage in. Enjoy an authentic travel experience and a delightful holiday.
Cheese at Its Best
Join the experienced dairywoman and learn how to produce cheese and churn butter. Get familiar with the characteristics of food production here, high above the valley floor. Your hosts are more than happy to show you how it works.
Every cook has his or her own secret recipe for “Kaspressknödel” (fried cheese dumplings). Some add a number of different cheeses whereas others use fragrant spices. What do they all have in common? This dish is an all-time favourite in the mountain restaurants and it’s unbelievably tasty!
The cheeses produced in the mountains in Salzburger Land, for example “Pinzgauer Kas”, are popular because of their low fat content and the savoury flavour. A slice of freshly baked bread with butter and cheese topped with vegetables and herbs is not only good for satisfying your appetite. It’s also an absolute delight!
Family Holidays amidst Alpine Pastures
It’s more than the extraordinary culinary delights that makes a holiday in one of the mountain restaurants in Austria unforgettable. There’s no better place to ground yourself in the present moment. Stunning country walks, wildlife watching in the habitat of majestic chamois and Alpine ibex, fierce summer storms that you can observe from the cosy living room - all these experiences will live on in your memory.
The interiors vary from one mountain cabin to the next. You might sleep in a room made of Austrian stone pine, relax in the private sauna or sit together in the country-style living room where the dairywoman used to spend the summer. Far from the valley floor, children can enjoy the freedom that they deserve. On the playground provided by Mother Earth, kids can be creative and let their imagination run wild.
Tree houses, tents in the forest, archery courses or treasure hunts - the smartphones and tablets can stay in the valley. Here, the sensors receive natural signals only. Explore the mountains on foot, go mountain biking or even paragliding. Immerse yourself in nature with all your senses. The adventures are boundless.
All of our hosts in the mountain restaurants will be happy to help out in any way they can. They know insider tips for every age and level of ability.
