Urlaub am alternativen Bauernhof Gruenfelder

Farm-Stay at Hof Gruenfelder

Being located close to the world cultural heritage Wachau, 80km west of Vienna, Austria, we offer a guest appartment of 55m2 in our farm house, which is roughly 300 years old. All rooms are renovated with love and care and have wooden floors and central heating as well as a stove - for the sake of romance - in the living room. On request we also serve breakfast in the apartment. If you are not in need of an entire appartment, we offer regular bed & breakfast, i.e. we also rent the rooms without kitchen.

In our garden there are chairs and a table at your disposal as well as a grilling facility.

At our little organic farm we have a small number of Icelandic horses, a donkey, some sheep and chicken. Children are warmly welcomed to 'assist' feeding the animals and may sit/ride on the horses or the donkey. The two floors of the appartment are connected via a spiral stair case. In our appartment you will find a guitar and a couple of books but no TV. There is, however, free WLAN internet access. Photographs of the rooms, the farm and the surrounding area can be seen here. The price is typically 45 Euros per night plus a cleaning fee at the end of the stay. Since most or our guests speak reasonable German, we have not translated the web pages on nearby sightseeing to English. We are, however, happy to answer your questions and assist your planning.
