This pretty, family-run house offers considerable flexibility for large mixed groups or for several smaller groups of differing ages. The house has two floors, each can be divided into two, giving four self-contained units if required. Similar flexibility extends to the dining rooms. The student rooms are mostly 6 bedded (with three 8 bedded). Both student and leaders’ rooms have private showers and toilets. Amenities include tuck shop, TV, video, table tennis room and disco room. Leaders have their own bar and stüberl. The house lies about 400m from the main road, about 2km from the lifts and 4km from the centre of Obertauern.
