It is just 10 miles from the house and you will find it perched just above sea level overlooking the emerald green lake. The restaurant terrace offers a spectacular dining experience with the tranquil lake lapping at the shore within inches of your table.

Lets keep it that way!


NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED! Fancy flying at 130km per hour without a Pilots License - no strings attached?

Not strings just one string - in fact its a very strong steel cable! In nearby Leogang (18 miles) you can experience one of the fastest and longest steel zip lines in the world, courtesy of Flying Fox XXL. Reaching speeds of up to 130 km / h you soar through the the sky at hights up to140 meters with spectacular views of the meadows and forest as they rush past you below. The wire is 1,600 meters long, that's .994 of a mile! Your ticket includes a cable car ride up to the "launch pad". The ride is open in both winter and summer.
The zip wire is reputed to have originated In South America where the mountain farmers crossed ravines, deep valleys and rushing rivers to the mountains opposite using thick steel cables.The first ride was considered to be a special test of courage and sealed the entry into adulthood. Enjoy!
