Winter Holidays with Kids
Have you already built a snowman with your kids this year? Snow can be a lot more than slush. Just look at the wonderful white blanket of snow covering the lands around the farms! In an idyllic setting far away from the hustle and bustle and busy streets, also the little guests can calm down here - or spring into action!
Nice Winter Holidays on the Farm
Have a look out of the window: there’s nothing that keeps you indoors. Building snowmen, sledging, scouting out tracks in the snow: the best place for a winter holiday with children is one of our certified farms for babies and kids!
Tip: A great number of snow lovers have made their first turns on skis during their winter holiday on a farm in Upper Austria. Many guests have found their passion during their winter holidays on the farm - thanks to their perfect location and ski schools nearby.
Fluffy Experiences on the Farm
Cows, chicken, goats or rabbits: they all need to be taken care of, also in winter. The barn is also worth a visit in the cold season. Would you like to pitch in? Absolutely! On the farm, you can take a look behind the scenes and get to know first-hand what it’s like to be a farmer.
How soft is a cow’s hair? How does sheepskin feel compared to it? Or a cat’s fur?
Children need this kind of contact with animals. They love animals and everything that’s part of working and living with them: feeding, mucking out the barn and taking care of them. Not to mention petting, stroking and cuddling with the adorable bunnies, puppies, kittens & the like. This is so much fun and has a calming effect, even on fidgety children. By the way: Did you know how healthy the air in the barn is? Scientific studies keep proving this.
So, what are you waiting for? Start your exciting holiday surrounded by animals.

Three Reasons for a Family Holiday in Winter on the Farm
1. Building Snowmen
Does the snowman always need to have coal eyes and a carrot nose? Why don’t we turn him into a snowy monster with huge acorns as teeth and use some wood to form horns? Let’s put grandpa’s hat on top! Hey, he doesn’t even look that scary. Actually, he looks quite nice! Doesn’t he resemble our neighbour from home?
Your whole family is working together and everyone’s rolling in the aisles? Then, you’ve probably just built a snowman. This story will live on in your memories. Don’t forget to take a photograph of your new friend!
2. Tobogganing and Sledging
Alone, in tandem, competing with each other or just for fun: tobogganing and sledging is exciting for the whole family! Feel the powdery snow beneath your runners as you’re whizzing down the hills. Relish in the snowy fun. Your cheeks go rosy and your eyes are sparkling. Are you heading to a big slope? Or are you hurtling downwards on the hill next to the farmhouse? Have you harnessed your dad to drive the sleigh and he’s now taking you through the woods?
After plenty of fun in the snow, the farmer awaits you with a hot chocolate for the kids and some hot punch for the grown-ups. And maybe there’s a dish of baked apples in the oven ...
3. The Farmer’s Kitchen
Tangy, hearty, sweet. The food on the farm is diverse. There’s something to suit every taste. Above all, the food on the farm is healthy and fresh. Tasting these culinary delights is an absolute must for you and your family: locally grown, seasonal produce directly from the farm or from neighbours in the vicinity. It’s prepared on site, in a creative and traditional style. After all, the farm is the place where your food comes from.
Pure Indulgence on the Farm
The sun is about to set. You’ve spent a lot of time outdoors. The kids couldn’t get enough of the snow. Is your stomach growling? What a great feeling it is to come home to the farm you’re staying in. A heavenly silence, a cup of good herbal tea or some hot punch await you.
Sit down on the bench and let the tiled stove warm you up. The pleasant scent of wood and herbs wafts towards you. Would you like to allow your muscles to relax during a sauna session or some time in the hot tub? A lot of our farms offer great spa facilities for you.
