Our second blog (October 2020)

It has now been almost a year since we signed the purchase contract for our B&B in Weissbriach, Austria and it sounds cliché but how long ago it seems! So much has happened in the meantime. What a wonderful summer 2020 we had, the beautiful weather, the warm evenings and our dear guests from all over but also dear friends who have come anyway. Even my in-laws have been here for 8 days. And yes of course the children have also been here and on my birthday I was even unexpectedly surprised by them.

Despite the corona that occupies us all well, we were able to do a lot about the property (with help that is), enjoyed the beautiful nature in our backyard and still held a BBQ / campfire evening every week. We laughed, consoled each other, there was guitar music, we roasted marshmallows, we sang along, toasted with Zirben schnapps (pine cone liqueur), shared beautiful stories with each other, celebrated birthdays, made friends but most of all spent a lot of quality time. Collect memories not things!

From this place we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came with us last summer and who were able to celebrate their holiday here. Our Berghaus is getting more beautiful and that is because of you because we have received even more inspiration and energy from you to continue with our dream. From December, our new room the Lodge can be booked including breakfast with a brand new bathroom. We are very curious what you think of it. Let us know.

And now on to winter. In front of our Berghaus there is a huge blue spruce where we will soon be hanging with Christmas lights. You will never forget a winter break in the Berghaus Weissbriach. At night millions of stars illuminate the clear sky. Our small-scale and personal accommodation is exactly what you need if you want to enjoy peace, space, freedom, a unique experience and natural beauty in the Berghaus Weissbriach. When you arrive here, you know enough: you will quickly feel at home here. The landscape is like a fairytale, the air is pure, everything is covered with thick layers of snow and the atmosphere is very special with all those lights when it is dark.

“Liebe people, we are going to make it a beautiful winter 2020/2021!” goodbye, enjoy the little things and all stay healthy.

Gruss gott, Bert und Linda

Our first blog (October 2019)

Yeahhhh our first blog on our own website! How incredibly cool is this as we look forward to our beautiful and exciting adventure. 

Who are we? My name is Linda and I currently work as a management assistant at the municipality and my husband Bert works at a medical company in Amersfoort. 

We love nature and are passionate about outdoor pursuits such as cycling and hiking, it’s just wonderful being outside in the open air! 

We have 4 children who we love very much, without their support we would never have been able to do this.  Our “son/daughters in law” are also outstanding with their support and we are so happy with everyone in our extended family. 

Another 2 months and then I bid goodbye to the municipality of Apeldoorn after having enjoyed working there for 15 years.
But we are both ready for a new challenge so why not follow your feelings and take this great exciting opportunity together? 

Now we are moving it is time to clean up and start to pack all our belongings, which is certainly a very good thing as while we are not a hoarding family we have a lot of space and if you have space you keep everything hahahahah!
Since we started sorting everything we have discovered the most beautiful items that we forgot we even owned! 

Next time I will tell you more about how we came to this “big” step of buying our Berghaus in Weissbriach, Austria.
