East Tyrol on an alpine hut: Winter holiday on the farm

Aus Von Ramona Schittenhelm

The Villgratental in East Tyrol offers an indescribable mountain landscape. There you will find an untouched mountain landscape and ecologically friendly tourism. Both during the summer and winter months, you can relax and unwind here: either directly on a farm or in a rustic alpine hut, which is accessible.
In Innervillgraten you can find this – on a small farm on the outskirts of the municipality with almost 1000 inhabitants is the farm of Albrecht Ortner, who manages it accordingly. Cows, pigs, chickens, goats and a few cats run around the farm.

During the summer months, the surrounding fields are cultivated, so that the holidaymakers can be pampered with products that are produced directly on the farm. Fresh milk, homemade butter or a freshly baked bread belong to this.
The natural Villgratental is an eldorado for ski touring enthusiasts. Mass tourism is not to be found here, rather in the region there is a strong emphasis on individual tourism. The comfort of a five-star hotel does not exist, but rather rustic coziness on the farm or one of the huts available here.

Albrecht Ortner’s farm is prepared for holidaymakers of all ages. Because you can experience and enjoy a lot here in the Near Lienz region. Especially for children and young families there is a small playground with climbing scaffold right next to the courtyard as well as a playground in the house. In addition, the children can of course pick up their breakfast eggs directly from the chicken themselves in the morning, explains Albrecht Ortner.

Those who want can also help with the feeding of the animals or drive out with the tractor to the hay harvest
