Our home

Our lovely alpine SECOND HOME is located in the village of Bruck an der Großglocknerstrasse. It is only used for family and friends visiting us. Since we are in furniture business we use it as show-chalet when it is not occupied. It is furnished to a very high standard with a fully fitted modern kitchen including SAT TV, dish washer, fridge-freezer combination, microwave, oven etc... Two lovely decorated walk through double bedrooms and a living room with pull out sofa bed and another SAT TV, a new bathroom with shower and toilet are on the upper floor.

Both bedrooms have access to a large south facing terrace (20m2) with views of the glacier "Kitzsteinhorn", a nice garden with apple trees belongs to our house. The house is in a quiet neighborhood but only 5 minutes walking distance to the village of Bruck with shops, restaurants and more... Two big supermarkets, a large sport shop and a fashion shop is just about a 5 minutes walk away. A cinema entertainment center with two restaurants and a bar as well as a mini golf place are only a few minutes walk from the house. There are plenty of things to do and see in the surroundings - see description of neighborhood below.

The house is basically always available for a non-simultaneous or simultaneous exchange.

One room on ground floor and the winter garden is used as an office (with a separate entrance) so this room cannot be used by the exchange family. But of course the exchange family is welcome to use our W-Lan internet which works in the whole house.

Who we are

  1. We are Gerhard and Karin - a married couple in our late 40s with 2 children, 15 and 17 years old. We are reliable and respectful people and can assure every exchange family to leave their home tidy and clean.

    Gerhard owns a furniture company specialized in furnishing holiday homes - see our website: www.mountainconcept.at. I am an interpreter specialized in real estate, offering assistance to clients buying property in Austria and assisting developers of holiday properties.

    We have done several home exchange and all have been a great success. We think it is a fantastic way of exploring other parts of the world and getting to know people from all over.
    We love to get away for a long weekend, either somewhere on the beach or to an interesting city but we are always open for exiting destinations all over the world - so just contact us - we will answer every email.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We truly live in one of the most beautiful places in Europe.

Near the highest mountain of Austria called the "Großglockner" and near the lake of Zell am See (just 2km away).

The area offers an very large infrastructure - from water sports, lake shore baths to mountain adventures. Kaprun - Zell am See it is a very well known ski area (pistes 5km away)- free ski bus within 3 minutes walk from our house - you can even ski in summer on the glacier of Kaprun on 3000 meters, the gondola to the glacier is only 10 km away and then have a swim in the clear waters of the Zeller See (we are proud of the drink water quality of our lake). There is a good network of cross country pistes (one is right in front of the house).

The house has a view of the glacier "Kitzsteinhorn" so there are white mountains to see also in summer! A new spa called "Tauern Spa Kaprun" opened two years ago (5km away), many places of interest are nearby - National Park "Hohetauern", museums, cinemas, spa, lake shore baths and family fun baths, lots of sports possibilities like mountain biking, hiking, skiing, tobogganing, rafting, paragliding, riding, fishing, guided ranger tours in the National Park "Hohetauern" ....

Bruck is a nice village with an old castle called "Schloss Fischhorn", there are several supermarkets, coffee shops, bakeries (Austria is famous for its bread and sweets), restaurants, sport shops etc. within 5-10 minutes walk from the house. To see more on the village of Bruck check out this site: www.grossglockner-zellersee.info

The charming town of Zell am See is just a few minutes drive away, it has a lovely historic center, many boutiques, restaurants, bars and shops. It has a good nightlife in winter and summer season. More info to be found on: www.zellamsee-kaprun.com
