Obholzhof: Lost in a sea of flowers

While the children play in the cowshed their parents can relax on the sunny terrace at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser Mountains. Thanks to its remote location, the Obholzhof is a haven of peace and quiet which has been welcoming some regular guests back for 50 years.

“So where is the farmhouse?” That is the question some guests may ask themselves when they arrive for the first time at the Obholzhof, such is the sea of flowers covering the wooden facade. Petunias and geraniums of all colours hang from the balconies of this farmhouse designed in a style typical of the Lower Inntal Valley, including a belfry on the roof. Maria Feger is the person responsible for this magnificent flower display. She spends many hours each day tending to her beloved plants and has even received an award as part of "Tirol blüht" ("Tirol in Bloom”). And, as she proudly explains, she does it all because she loves her plants. She is not the only one. Some guests have been coming back to the Obholzhof for the past 50 years to spend their holidays here. Maybe it’s because of the flowers – or maybe it’s because of the delicious breakfast.

Another plausible explanation for such loyalty could be the sunny location on a mountain slope above Scheffau overlooking the Wilder Kaiser Mountains. Here on the mountain there are no cars, meaning parents can let their children play in the farmyard and feed the sheep Bert and Berta. Just a 30-minute walk from the farm is the idyllic Hintersteiner See lake. Maria Feger is also happy to give mountain bikers information and tips on the best places to ride in the region.
