Ablass farm and snack station

This business is excellent…


The rustic farm and certified hiking establishment “Ablass” is nestled in the middle of the nature and landscape conservation area not far from the Leckermoos raised bog in the magnificent mountain world of the Göstling Alps, to be exact on the high plateau Hochreit on 832 m above sea level. Especially children will love the playground and farm animals. In the Wilde Wunder Card accommodation with comfortable snack station and museum, the Zettel family spoil their guests with a large selection of home-made farm products and delicacies from the region.

In winter, you can start your day on the tracks of the cross-country skiing centre, for instance the Panoramic Cross-Country Ski Track Hochreit, or head towards Mt. Hochkar or Mt. Ötscher. Afterwards, a visit to the Ybbstal Saltwater Spa – where relaxation is key – is particularly recommendable. In summertime, you can plan your next hike on the trails around Hochreit while sitting on your balcony of the accommodation that has been awarded the Austrian Hiking Seal of Quality.

In the rustic 300 year old farmhouse you can be spoiled by our family with many self-produced products. Since the end of 2022 we can call ourselves a member of the AMA Genuss Region!
Whether at breakfast, the 3-course half board, on request also vegetarian or with delicacies from the snack menu. Enjoy homemade specialties from our own beef, lamb and pork. Homemade wood-fired bread, butter, curd cheese, etc. In the farmhouse parlor with tiled stove from 1925 (for about 30 people) or - in the Ausnehmerstüberl (for about 16 people) or - in the Risgrabenstüberl (for about 14 people) - Furthermore there are many seats in front of our sunny house. Family celebrations or excursion groups we welcome with pleasure against advance notification.

We are looking forward to your visit!
