What do you think of when you plan your time-out on a farm? Little kittens and chicken, of course, but also cows and maybe sheep.
You better get ready to be surprised about what is waiting here in Molln, in the Upper Austrian Limestone Alps National Park! Surrounded by an idyllic landscape, between lush meadows and dense forests, is the former "Alpe im Rauschertal" from 1876.
In 2013, the current owners rolled up their sleeves and brought new life to the small farm with much emphasis on authenticity.
The hillside location of the fields presented the farmers with special challenges. Heavy mowing machines would have been necessary for cultivation. However, since the idea of sustainability played an important role on the farm, the family decided on an unconventional way of working the fields.
Holiday time with real llamas
But the “staff” from the Andes - Pedro, Fritz, Nico and Felix – is taking care of the pastures, making it easy and a real joy. The curious and intelligent fellows are your direct neighbours during your time on the farm. What fun to watch them and stroke their fluffy coat. They are more than happy to accompany you on a hiking tour with llama guide Sarah.
There is always something to do on the farm! The owners are on the grounds every day to look after the animals and do their farm work. For this purpose, they also stay in their flat in the outbuilding from time to time. If time permits, they also like to show the children how to care for and pamper a llama.
Next to the llama stables with outdoor enclosure, there is the cosy alpine hut with a far-reaching panoramic view of the Sengsen Mountains.
The furnished, covered terrace is the best place to enjoy the view over the picturesque terrain with:
- a large garden,
- a well, including freshness kick,
- the brick barbecue and the fireplace.
Following the path, you reach the cold pond with its own jetty and water wheel. The pond is fed by the adjacent small mountain streams. The babbling of the water has an immensely calming effect. Dear parents, the pond is not designated as a swimming pond. However, as you know, water magically attracts young children. Therefore, our recommendation for all cases: Always keep a watchful eye and ensure the use of inflatable armbands.
Authentic & cosy - your fully self-sufficient alpine hut
The cosy Räuschertal hut has a bit of everything:
- A bit of a quaint alpine hut. This is evidenced by the old, dark wooden beams on the ceilings or the historical stable doors. The regionally traditional wood burner in the kitchen for cooking and heating is also typical of the hut style.
- A bit of an idyllic, sustainable country house with modern elements. The new kitchen meets all requirements for self-catering, and the property’s own waterworks provide running water in the spacious bathroom. Even the electricity is generated by the property’s own power station, and hot water is provided by solar power.
The bedrooms on the upper floor, directly under the roof, are newly renovated and furnished with lots of light wood. You can access the rooms via a separate external staircase. Please be careful that the sloping roofs and wooden beams don't wake you too abruptly, should you need to get out at night.
This place is a paradise for explorers of all ages.
Deer, foxes, hares and other wildlife can be watched here especially in the early hours of the morning or after sunset. The animals come particularly close to the hut around these times.
Start your hiking and mountain bike tours to Windischgarsten and the Pyhrn Priel region directly from the front door. Be inspired by the National Park forests around 14 km away. They are home to a great variety of animals and plants. The village of Molln, about 12 km away, became widely known due to a tragic event, involving poachers, that happened around 100 years ago, and was later also made into a film. Today the village invites you to stroll and saunter.
Tip: Test your musical skills with a jaw harp. This is a very peculiar musical instrument that originated in the region around Molln. It is a so-called "trouser pocket instrument", which is said to have an eroticising effect.
