The holiday home BERGRAUM in the Austrian Kleinwalsertal is a modern interpretation of the traditional barn. Outside as well as inside the building is characterized by simple forms, straight lines and the reduction to the materials wood, concrete and glass.

The centerpiece is the double height open plan living, dining and kitchen area. Exposed beams and a gallery under the roof reinforce the associations with a barn. On the south side, the room’s large picture window opens onto the sun terrace with views into the Wildental. On the western long side an 8-meter wide window with resting area is an inviting place to linger with a view of the mountains. There is a bedroom in the rear of the house and three further bedrooms are on the lower level. Including the beds on the gallery, the house can accommodate up to 8 people.

What to do

Additional facilities include a steam sauna and a Finnish sauna.
Summer: Hiking, biking, climbing (the mountain railway ticket is included from May to October).
Winter: Skiing (the house is 1.1 km from the chair lift Zaferna and 100 meters from the ski Wildental away), ski tours, cross-country skiing.

Ein Berg(t)raum! Die großen Panoramafenster fangen die umliegenden Berge so schön ein, dass das Betrachten Appetit auf die nächste Wanderung macht und nach der Rückkehr der Muskelkater richtig angenehm wird. Außen unscheinbar wie ein Stadl überrascht das Haus innen durch seine angenehme Wohnatmosphäre und hochwertige und umfassende Innenausstattung. Einziger Wertmutropfen: Irgendwann ist auch der schönste Urlaub einmal zu Ende – aber wir kommen gerne wieder.
