Savour your family vacation at Gut Enghagen, in the middle of the Pyhrn-Priel region in Upper Austria. Ten horses and ponies are living a good life here, our herd of Angus cattle has a great time, Turopolje pigs feel at home at our farm, dog Emmi and cat Fritzi are our housemates, lots of fish frolick joyfully in our pond. Since summer 2012, even sheep, Viennese rabbits and “Altsteirer” chickens highly enjoy getting fed and petted by our excited and delighted young guests in our children’s farm.
Unadulterated nature for all senses
Where better to go on your vacation with children than a farm hotel in Austria?
There is always something going on, there is always something to observe and something new to experience, every single day in our hotel with organic farm. Moreover, vacationing with other families, kids and animals strengthens self-esteem and social behaviour, and children get to experience the natural cycle of life—when, for example, calves, piglets or kittens are born. Plus, it is of course very healthy to spend so much time happily in the fresh air!
Assiduous and animal-loving children are invited to help us out on the farm: driving cows, caring for a foster horse, making hay and cleaning out the stables is even more fun when done together. Almost as an aside, the kids learn to take responsibility when they choose a foster horse to take care of during the entire vacation and may even be allowed to ride them or learn how to.
Our children’s farm in Upper Austria is located in a timber house, built the old, traditional style in summer 2012, and lovingly decorated with flowers and covered with wooden shingles. A young, talented vacation guest has spontaneously taken over painting the interior walls. Certainly, there is seating available for the parents to sit back, relax and watch the bunch play.
