We live in a spacious, sunny house with a garden in a quiet rural area only 12 km from Linz, the capital of Upper Austria, and the 2009 European Cultural Capital. Our house is located 2 km from the town of Altenberg and is surrounded by forests, fields and meadows that offer great hiking possibilities. A large horseriding facility, a goat farm and an open air museum can be reached on foot in 15-20 minutes. Also close by is a great swimming lake and a fun pool for kids of all ages, as well as indoor pools, saunas and wellness facilities. In the winter time we enjoy going skiing in the numerous skiing areas around us or we just take a tour on our cross country skis from the back yard of our house. Downstairs in our basement we offer a sauna, which we use a lot to warm up on cooler evenings!
