The Organic- farm Sonnenhof is located on an atmospheric hill surrounded by mountains, with a dreamy view of one of the most beautiful alpine landscapes in the heart of Austria.
In summer there are countless opportunities for hiking, climbing or cycling and incidentally explore the most beautiful corners of the area, such as the Gesäuse National Park, the Dachstein or Salzkammergut.
As a special "delicacy" we offer a trip to our pasture, where you get a deep insight into the dead mountains by the campfire. Afterwards, a jump into the "warmest alpine lake in Styria", just a few minutes away, ensures the perfect end to the day.
In winter, there are numerous ski areas such as the World Cup Schladming, the Planneralm, the Riesneralm or the Tauplitzalm. The Planner - and Riesneralm can be reached in 35 minutes by public transport and we will provide you a pick-up service from the bus/train station.
Our guests, especially the children, are regularly invited to join us in the cowshed and help with feeding the animals, milking, mucking out, grooming, hopping in the hay, collecting eggs, tasting fresh milk, ... We have made it our task to meet our animals at eye level, despite livestock farming. That is why we converted our cattle farm to free-range stalls with an outdoor area, a few years ago. From April to October the animals are on the pasture. Our chickens are able to move around freely and the ducks have a fenced area in the garden with their own pool. This creates a special rural idyll that is very much appreciated by our guests.
Furthermore, it is important to me to maintain our food sovereignty. Milk is processed into mozzarella and curd cheese, jams and chutneys are created from our fruits. I have a special passion for the alchemy of juices, fine brandies and beer! In between, fresh farmer's breads are baked again and again! In our community we grow field vegetables with several families and divide the harvest among each other. Therefore, there is also a lot for vegetarians and vegans to discover on the farm.
Therefore, I ask you to contact me personally so that you can see all the services!
The orchard is our place of strength, which is why I have created my own camping area where you can feel the strength of the old trees far away from the noise. A place where you can walk barefoot through the medows, get contemplative around the campfire and fry delicious corn on the cob, or maybe just read a book in the hammock and watch the beautiful landscape.
In the medium-term future, a space for seminars will be created there, with a covered outdoor kitchen, a yurt, a toilet, an outdoor spiral shower and an open seminar room that leads directly into the orchard. Here people should come back to their natural strength and be trained in various seminars. E.g. Energetic training, Sharmanic healing seminars, yoga seminars, drum work shop, constellation work, outdoor pedagogy courses, power place hikes and much more.
As a special "delicacy" I have an alpine hut, which gives a deep view of the Grimming and the Dead Mountains. A place of retreat, silence, meditation, simple life, where community is experienced. Wood is chopped for the campfire and in the background you can hear the flowing water from the spring. You stand in the outside shower and watch the Grimming, the alpine landscape, the cows and the forest. It is an energizing place for forest education seminars, sunrise tours and star walks.

If you do not want to be tested while going in a restaurant and there is no possibility to sit in the beer garden, there are many restaurants that offer a "take away" service. You can stay in the restaurant for 15 minutes without a test. We would like to provide you with plates, trays and Tupperware for the transport and you can look for a cozy place on the farm! For example in the lounge, in the courtyard museum, in the apartment or in the room. When the weather is nice, it is wonderful under the linden tree, on the terrace or with a picnic blanket in the meadow.
