Gintherhof: The smell of freshly baked bread

Hiking is hungry work, so what better way to round off a walk in the Tiroler Lech Nature Park than with a hearty snack at the Gintherhof? Sweet temptation here comes in many forms, none more aromatic and attractive than Annelies Paulweber’s plaited yeast bun fresh from the oven.

Annelies Paulweber’s oven is almost always in action. Homemade bread, ‘Guglhupf’ cake and all manner of other sweet treats await guests staying at the Gintherhof. The most popular and famous is without a doubt her plaited yeast bun. Time and time again visitors ask for the recipe, she says with more than a little pride. This traditional afternoon snack is served free of charge to guests every afternoon, either as a tasty reward after a hike in the Tiroler Lech Nature Park or as a welcome back to the farm after a visit to one of the many enchanting castles over the border in Bavaria. 

Visitors unsure about the best areas for hiking can ask Annelies Paulweber’s husband, Sepp, who runs an alpine sports school in Reutte. Guests staying at the Gintherhof receive hiking equipment for the duration of their stay, including a rucksack, map, drink bottle, hiking poles and binoculars. Sepp Paulweber also sometimes organises guided hikes himself. The only thing you need to remember is to be back on the farm at 5 o’clock in the afternoon so that the children can see the cows returning home from the pastures!
