AUTUMN FUN FOR ALL AGES
Welcome to a colourful autumn on our farm
In autumn the nature turns over a new leaf: the trees get colourful and then lose their leaves. Animals living in the forest collect fruits of the trees and get ready for the winter. They build their hide-out with foliage, branches and loose soil or look for a good spot to spend the winter in tree-holes.
Remaining fruits and vegetables aer being harvested, animals come back to their stables from the alpine mountain pastures and also we ourselves get ready for a colourful autumn filled with adventures. Mild temperatures and the warm sunshine ensure unforgettable days at the Hotel Oberschwarzach and the farm.
A family vacation centers around the little ones - they want to be spoiled, entertained and have fun. We are well prepared with offering a lot of fun activities and a big outdoor playing ground with a covered cubby house in the sand. Fun moments in the fresh air are guaranteed.
In our hotel, children up to 5 years stay free of charge! Next to the culinary delights included in the 3/4 half board, we also offer a child care center with many indoor and outdoor activities with our child minders Luci and Klara. Otherwise the most important theme at the Oberschwarzach are our ponies: Stroking, grooming, braiding their manes, saddling them up and riding them - with the help of our little guests our ponies will get spoiled. An amazing outdoor fun for all animal lovers.
Visiting and petting our ponies is always a big hit for everyone. Especially in autumn, when you can cuddle them in their cosy stable or play with them on the meadows. Also, our goats, bunnies and cats look forward to being stroked and played with. If you would like to help us, we are more than happy if you lend us a hand grooming the ponies. Keeping our animals happy is a full-time job. This way, children learn how to look after the animals and how to get them ready for winter.
Another highlight is our pony riding session twice a day. A true adventure for little kids starting from 0 years (only accompanied by their parents). Every kid is allowed to participate. If the weather is good, we wash the ponies once a week and we could also use a little help with that. So don't miss this fun task. If you prefer a slower pace, we recommend experiencing the romance of autumn while sitting in our carriage drawn by ponies. Get outside into the beautiful nature - that's what the autumn is for.
Autumn is the best time of the year for hikes and trying culinary delights in mountain huts. The pleasant temperatures make us want to go outside and enjoy the fresh mountain air. There aren't that many hikers outside so you can enjoy peace and quiet. The nature is colourful and slowly prepares us for winter. This is the perfect season for experience the beautiful scenery outside. One special highlight is our weekly guided family hike with a break in our mountain hut. This hike also includes a cheese tasting session, watching the milking of the cows, petting animals and various other little surprises, such as for example competitions with our home built wooden games.
Another classic activity is autumn is the "Heuhüpfen" (a.k.a. jumping in the hay) and sleeping in the hay stable. The temperatures at night are mild and guarantee a good night's sleep. Kids love being that close to our animals. A true cuddling pleasure for animal lovers.
Every week in autumn we have a certain culinary theme at the Hotel Oberschwarzach in order to spoil our guests with different traditional treats. Our chef Julian and his kitchen team are also looking forward to pamper non-hotelguests in our Hotel Oberschwarzach restaurant.
Starting with themes like "crazy barbecue" to "delicious home country" to "enjoy & sin" you can look forward to the creative creations prepared by our kitchen staff. So visit our hotel and let us spoil you.
