The Package of Family Höll
Is it in their genes or is it growing up in the mountains? What all the Hölls have in common is their love of the mountains. If it's on two wheels, two skiis or on their feet - "auffi muass i", meaning I must go up and then fast back down again. Ideal on the bike, because biking is for family Höll the most paramount.
Bine about Walter: "My husband is the all-rounder at Spielberghaus. He is the kitchen chef, caretaker, waiter, mechanic, snowcat driver, bike guide, joke teller, mushroom seeker and the snow blower expert - he knows everything. If I haven’t seen him for a while, I know where to find him, most likely in the bike workshop, his place of finding strength."
Vali about her Mum: "Without mum nothing is happening here, she is the one who holds everything together and pulls the strings behind the scene. Without her I wouldn’t have started biking. My mum has always been and still is my training buddy. Even road biking is fun with her!"
Walter about Joni: "Is it so nice to have an engineer in the family - in our case an excellent Lego-engineer! He is a real sunshine, who brings us all a lot of joy and is therefore popular throughout the house among young and old. It’s good to know: Anyone who needs tutoring on superhero stories should contact our "Kasnocken" (cheese dumplings) and "Kaiserschmarren" (emperors dessert) expert Joni! "
Joni about Vali: "Vali is the best sister in the world and not only because she is my only sister! She picks me up in the car from school, builds lego with me and helps me with my home work. The best thing is, when I am aloud to cuddle up and watch tv with her."
Did Spielberghaus find the guests itself or did the guests discover the Spielberghaus, it doesn’t really matter! The story is long. We are definitely happy for our guests, that they don't have to share the back part of our lounge with the cows, because that part of the house used to be a small barn. After the construction of the Spielberg road, the goods no longer had to be laboriously brought up from the valley by people using muscle power. And yes and no more smugglers sneaking over to Tirol.
Who wants to know more, can ask Walter in person, he is passionate about telling you all about it.
