Admittedly: You won’t find any roosters or cows here. But instead you’ll find plenty of fluffy sheep and bleating goats, two Haflinger horses with flowing manes and four legs – Newton & Gara, our former stud & his girlfriend, – a couple of funny ducks (Donald & Daisy) and cuddly rabbits. Oh, and don’t forget Willy, our not so watchful senior dog & cats Gismo, Fleckbert & Mauzbert!
Petting, watching, photographing … everything is allowed as long as you are nice to our two- and four-legged friends. Yes, you can even help mucking out the stables if you absolutely want to
Callisthenics park, Yoga platform, barefoot path and hammocks in the forest – we have it all! The brandgut area is peppered with plenty of outdoor adventures and there will soon be even more.. Adventurers, people looking for relaxation and those who enjoy taking in the views – you name it, everyone can let off steam to their heart’s content, switch off and relax or just take a deep breath of the fresh mountain air. Whether you want to take things up a notch – or come back down – you can do both here.
When you put on your hiking shoes after breakfast you are practically at the starting point for your tour. After all, from the Brandgut you have so many opportunities to explore the surrounding mountains. You will come across a leisurely circuit here, as well as challenging day tours to Saalbach, Leogang and to Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See.
If you would prefer to cover a few metres altitude by gondola, it is just a few minutes’ drive to get to one of over 10 lift facilities which take you right up to the loveliest summits in the region.
Did you know that Austria’s biggest bike region is just a stone’s throw away? Over 80 kilometres of downhill trails are ‘shred-ready’, while Learn-to-Ride Parks are waiting for kids and beginners. Even (E-)mountain-bikers won’t manage to tackle all the tours in two weeks. What to bet?!
For leisurely bike excursions there is also the scenic promenade at Lake Zell and flat cycle paths through the little towns around Maishofen. Here you cruise in relaxed fashion, on the flat, no pressure on your calves; you might even treat yourself to an ice-cream, before a dip in the refreshing lake. E-Bikes are available to hire direct in the Brandgut for € 45 per day.
36 greens nestling amid mountain, glacier and lake. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing sights to enjoy during your game of golf. Teeing off with views to the impressive mountains in Salzburger Land really is quite something, is it not? Between April and October you can hone and further build upon your golfing skills.
Who hasn’t at one time dreamt of becoming a pro golfer – and where better for successful training than in front of an impressive mountain backdrop? All those of you who consider a golf course a tad too much to handle, can practice and perfect your tee-off over a short distance on the numerous mini golf courses in the region.
The little village of Viehhofen nestles between the big players, namely Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn and Zell am See-Kaprun. With the connecting lift opened in 2019, Viehhofen is now a fixed point in the ski region too, and is associated with many superlatives: biggest, most contemporary, loveliest … whatever, the facts speak for themselves: 408 kilometres of pistes and 121 lift facilities.
No car needed. Our hotel bus takes you to the lift, then collects you again. This means you can conveniently leave your car parked during your winter holiday. In this vast network of pistes it may well be that you won’t end up back where you started out.
In the neighbouring town of Maishofen you have access to an unutterably large trail network that extends across Saalfelden and Zell am See. “Unutterably large” is, in ballpark figure terms, about 150 km. Don’t believe us? Then check it out!
