Happy work on the mountain pasture
Family Hartweger calls her "Happy Work" Concept, with whom she has lured mainly self-employed in the off-season on the Moserhof to Penk in northern Carinthia. Because they appreciate the outstanding service, the warmth of the hosts paired with peace and seclusion in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park for relaxed work.
These are on the Manor Moserhof several cottages or apartments in the manor house available - including a mountain chalet at 1600 meters height. And: solo travelers, for example, rent to work here, even get a discount here.
Coaching and yoga on the mountain meadow
It was a good idea to hold a coaching seminar here. Theme: Work-life balance. Under the guidance of Heike Kluska, therapist for Integral Dance and Expression Therapy®, we use the great environment, the forest, the sound of the water, the picturesque mountain scenery, to become clear about ourselves and our goals - and to decelerate. Including aperitifs around the campfire as well as yoga and meditations on the mountain meadow. A great experience.
Farmer Heinz Hartweger, who has received several awards including for ecological forestry and the tourism industry, has his own philosophy on the subject of work-life balance: If he gets stuck in one job, he simply makes another to free his head to get. Variety at work is the crux of successful work, he reveals.
Work-life-balance through multitasking?
In fact, he is a real all-rounder who can look over his shoulder while working: in his own workshop, he makes everything that is needed from local wood - from handy hearts as souvenirs to home-made furniture and entire huts. And it's exactly this variety that guests will find on the Moserhof.
In February 2004 burned the 800 years old farm, the Heinz and Gerhild Hartweger 1990 had taken over from the parents, completely - a crisis that saw the Hartwegers as an opportunity to realize an innovative tourism concept: The combination of a chalet village with a living, managed farm.
Chalet village with farm
In June 2005 then directly on the river Möll 6 rustic but nevertheless high-quality Biovollholz holiday homes in the traditional Carinthian style for up to 8 persons, 3 traditional alpine huts for 2 to 5 persons, a bath house with sauna and massage rooms and a small chapel on the village square opened , As an alternative to the detached chalets, there are also apartments in the manor house for 2-5 persons. They were rewarded with 5 flowers, a kind of star rating for tourist farms.
There is also plenty of variety in the activities: So you can care for animals in the petting zoo, participate in the daily animal feeding, mowing with farmer Heinz hay, splashing in the lake or can be edited by the excellent masseuse.
Horse riding, fishing, golf and water sports
A stud has been around since 1995. Today the Moserhof is a professional riding school with riding school operation. For riding on the site there is a tournament hall (20 x 40 m) and an open riding arena with obstacle course. Riding lessons are offered by trained beginner and advanced instructors, there are currently 40 horses, but guests can also bring their own horses, which will receive a spacious box with paddock and full board during their stay. We also offer guided tours in different levels of difficulty, one or more days, in the 200 km long bridle path network.
Holders of a fishing card, which guests of the Moserhof receive at a discounted daily rate, will find rainbow and brown trout as well as grayling here. And not just as anglers. But also in the supreme discipline fly fishing, which enjoys increasing popularity among managers.
But golf and various water sports are possible in the area: Approx. 20 to 40 km from the Moserhof are three golf courses (9 hole, 18 hole and 27 hole system) with stunning panoramic views. If you like it more turbulent, you can take part in rafting, canyoning or canoeing.
Hunting and wildlife observation: experience pure nature
Special extras to Dazubuchen are guided Wildtierobachtungen, stalking and hunting with Heinz Hartweger, who is in the company of his welding dog Heiko regularly in his 22 hectare territory on the way.
You can also experience pure nature on your own: Around the Moserhof, the Hohe Tauern National Park stretches with the Grossglockner, the highest mountain in Austria with 3.798 m. With a total of 300 peaks that are over 3.000 meters high, the National Park offers countless opportunities for hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing from spring to autumn. In summer there is a daily hiking bus.
Skiing and snowshoeing
In winter you can explore it with snowshoes or skis. Four ski areas can be easily reached from the property Moserhof with your own car or the Schishuttle. The nearest are the Mölltal Glacier and the Ankogel ski area, both about 15 km away and snow sure. The Goldeck sun-bathing area and the areas in Heiligenblut and Katschberg lead guests to other charming ski destinations. On the Mölltal Glacier, the downhill season is 3.000 days under the motto "Experience 365".
In addition to alpine skiing, freeriding and snowboarding, visitors will find ideal conditions for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or winter hiking. Ski tourers experience around the Moserhof one of the most beautiful touring areas in Austria. At the Moserhof rides in winter and warm packed the snowy landscape enjoyed on the back of the horses.
Culinary: Main thing homemade
But also for culinary care is taken care of: guests can, for example, barbecue and hack the wood for it or bake bread with Gerhild Hartweger in the specially designed bread bakery or the hostess and her pastry chef in the new, glazed dairy over the shoulder. In general, own and regional products on the Moserhof are capitalized:
The meat in the restaurant was partly killed by Heinz Hartweger himself, vegetables and herbs come as often as possible from Gerhild Hartwegers large kitchen garden. In her traditional recipes, the farmer's wife also addresses the incompatibilities or wishes of her guests and plans soon to publish a cookbook.
All cottages can be booked seasonally as a self-catering or with meals. If guests make use of the culinary offer of the estate, a stay with breakfast package and Moserhof pamper package is available. Depending on your preference, Hartwegers bring breakfast, barbecue packages, fondue or a peasant snack even to the mountain huts. The unpaved road is quite steep, if sufficiently wide.
Higlight: relax at the alpine hut
Anyway, the alpine pastures. They were my personal highlight - not only because of the fantastic view, but also because of the peace and seclusion up here. On 1800 m is for example the "Bloatschtrattenhütte", an 150 years old, original preserved alpine hut made of wood for a maximum of 5 persons with comfortable kitchen, spacious family bedroom with 2 beds, 3 further beds in the converted loft and a private bathhouse with panoramic sauna.
On 1600 m altitude, in the midst of a fantastic mountain scenery, stands the mountain chalet Moseralm, which is due to its facilities also ideal for secluded strategy meetings for up to 8 persons. Where previously stood a simple chalet, which Heinz Hartweger used for his hunting trips, was built on the basis of the old buildings in the midst of soft alpine meadows, a 150 m2 large, year-round habitable refuge in the noble alpine style. The kitchen, with wood stove, which supplies the entire house in addition to the basic heating (electricity) with heat, goes into a room with an open fireplace, cozy sofa and flat screen TV. On the ground floor there is also a double room bathroom with shower, separate toilet.
The eye-catcher upstairs is the bedroom with floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, calming pine wood walls and pull-out sleeping couch. Also upstairs is another double bedroom and a bathroom with shower and toilet. Special attention was paid to organic building materials such as solid wood, hemp, sheep wool, terracotta tiles and felt.
All furniture was designed by Heinz Hartweger in the farm's own workshop and built from its own wood. On the ground floor, an outdoor terrace has been created for relaxing hours and barbecues outdoors. Wellness features include an alpine bathhouse with a free-standing tub, a wood-burning stove and a glass-enclosed sauna as well as a natural bathing pond and an attic with a fragrant Alpine hayloft.
Seminars with Alpine panorama and prices
On the Moseralm you have a lot of luxury and yet nobody will disturb you. Nevertheless, a seminar room for up to 30 persons is also available for seminars and meetings down in the manor house below. Laptop, projector, screen, flat screen, flipchart, pin board and media suitcase are available. The conference package including the threeCourse lunch menu, two organic snacks (sandwiches, cakes, snacks) as well as tea, coffee, water, juices and fruit are available at 55 Euro per person per day.
Overnight stay for conference guests 130 Euro per person in a double room and 150 Euro in a single room, including breakfast, dinner and conference package. The overnight prices in the estate start at 160 Euro per night in the apartment, 205, - Euro per night in a historic mountain hut and 225 Euro per night in an alpine chalet.
