  • Description


    We live as a young family in a self-build yurt between the village, the danube and the forest of Vienna (Wienerwald) in a small community. Our son has been born in june 2020. We have two donkeys, a rooster and honey bees. Luc(36) is a basketmaker, a willow-grower and a permaculture-gardener. Tanja(32) is working as horse assisted coach and trainer with the donkeys and is doing illustration work and kreative courses with children.

    The train station to Vienna is at 15min walk-distance and then you are in Austria´s capital in 20 minutes. We have bikes that you can borrow to discover the beautiful surroundings. There are nice spots to go for a swim, hike...
    We look forward to get in contact and give you more informations and hopefully soon welcome you in our place.
