Pechhof: Cow bells and harp strings

Annemarie Fritz’s Pechhof combines the best of both worlds: untouched nature and urban chic. Located in the heart of the mountains yet just a short drive from Innsbruck, this farm in Mutters also has much to offer guests with a passion for music.

There are many reasons to visit the Pechhof. Its proximity to Innsbruck, its fabulous views of the Inntal Valley, or simply the fresh milk which Josef Fritz brings straight from the cowshed to the farmhouse early in the morning. And yet, despite all these many attractions, some guests come first and foremost for one thing: the gentle sound of the harp. For the Pechhof is a farm with a flair for music. Josef’s wife, Annemarie Fritz, is a teacher at the nearby music school and offers guests the chance to learn the harp during their stay.

“The harp” is, in fact, a little too simplistic – there are, after all, many different types of harp and Frau Fritz knows how to play them all. The farm even has a selection of harps which visitors are welcome to borrow and practise on during their stay. Annemarie says that some people have been returning to the Pechhof for ten years to improve their harp-playing, while others come for the first time to try their hand at this unusual instrument. Visitors from as far afield as China and Japan have contacted the family and enquired about coming to Innsbruck. Sometimes, admits Annemarie Fritz, she and her husband are even a little surprised that they have ended up living on a farm. But it is a life they love – not least because of the beautiful nature and music.
