“We have been spending 2 separate weeks in the nice house of Karin And Gerhard in January 2016 and february 2016 during non-simultaneous exchange. Once we were only 2 people and once we were 4. The apartement is in a good position, calm and near the village of Bruck. It is equipped with everything that can be necessary. The skiing resort is all around and joinable in 5 mins of car. It offers a lot of possibilities for skiing (also on the glaciar) and a lot of fun like tobogganing and relaxing at the nearby thermes . Karin and Gerhard are sweet, nice and gentle people and we have spent some nice moments with them, even on the ski runs! Thank you very much for the warm welcome and the successfull exchange. we hope to meet you again.”
Where is it?
We truly live in one of the most beautiful places in Europe.
Near the highest mountain of Austria called the "Großglockner" and near the lake of Zell am See (just 2km away).
The area offers an very large infrastructure - from water sports, lake shore baths to mountain adventures. Kaprun - Zell am See it is a very well known ski area (pistes 5km away)- free ski bus within 3 minutes walk from our house - you can even ski in summer on the glacier of Kaprun on 3000 meters, the gondola to the glacier is only 10 km away and then have a swim in the clear waters of the Zeller See (we are proud of the drink water quality of our lake). There is a good network of cross country pistes (one is right in front of the house).
The house has a view of the glacier "Kitzsteinhorn" so there are white mountains to see also in summer! A new spa called "Tauern Spa Kaprun" opened two years ago (5km away), many places of interest are nearby - National Park "Hohetauern", museums, cinemas, spa, lake shore baths and family fun baths, lots of sports possibilities like mountain biking, hiking, skiing, tobogganing, rafting, paragliding, riding, fishing, guided ranger tours in the National Park "Hohetauern" ....
Bruck is a nice village with an old castle called "Schloss Fischhorn", there are several supermarkets, coffee shops, bakeries (Austria is famous for its bread and sweets), restaurants, sport shops etc. within 5-10 minutes walk from the house.
