How it all started

A certain Herr Weiß built a house in Kinzenschlag in 1860, on plot number 11.

Maria and Martin Pichler, from Sitzmanns,
buy the house in 1867.

Located on an important trade route, Maria and Martin decide to open a small rest stop. The house consists of a living room and a small chamber. Maria and Martin Pichler had four children: Ignaz, Ferdinand, Theresa and Maria.

In 1919, Ignaz, the youngest son, took over the house, which had been expanded with a barn. In the same year, Ignaz Pichler married Maria Pichler from Neustift.

Changes to the house
In the years that follow, the entrance room is converted into a kitchen, and the chamber becomes a living room and bedroom. The children Maria, Emma and Willibald form the third generation.

The eldest daughter Maria married Franz Einfalt from Antenfeinhöfen. Together they take over the house in 1949. The marriage of Maria and Franz Einfalt produced the children Franz, Erna and Herbert.

Changes to the house
Maria and Franz enlarge the barn and add a hall, a garage and four guest rooms to the house.

In 1972 two more guest rooms were built. After the completion of this construction work, the family celebrates the 100th anniversary of the inn.

In 1980, together with the then mayor Ignaz Besenbäck and the municipal councilor Josef Jank, the innkeeper Franz Einfalt created the Klein Wetzles high plateau trail.

Five years later, the youngest son, Herbert Einfalt, took over the house together with Pauline Remplbauer and their two sons, Christoph and Andreas.

Changes to the house
Shortly thereafter, the kitchen and the dining room are renovated. A 10 meter long extension offers space for more rooms and a holiday apartment with a kitchen.

Pauline and Herbert Einfalt open a dance cafe.

1998 - 2001
A new guest garden made of stone walls and larch wood is created. The attraction for our little guests: A small children's playground and a soccer field are built.

The hostel with the nature rooms was completed in 2002. The rooms are made of wood throughout.

Since 2003, our guests have been able to unwind in the tastefully designed wellness area with sauna, steam bath and infrared cabin.

In 2005, the Tanzcafe was transformed into a cozy dining room in new colors.

The kitchen is brought up to date. From this point on, the inn is also well prepared for larger celebrations and events.

2009 und 2012
The Kraftplatz behind the house is uncovered and is now available to our guests. A small but fine campsite with 17 pitches is being built all around.

The campsite will have a new sanitary area. The photo foils bring nature into the showers and toilets.

Unfortunately Herbert Einfalt passed away much too early and completely unexpectedly in June 2014. Christoph, the eldest son, takes over the inn. Having grown up in his parents' business, Christoph has known the hospitality industry since he was a child. A completed master’s degree in digital media at the University of Applied Sciences in Hagenberg enables him to design various folders, the homepage, but also the rooms.

Three comfort rooms are being renovated and furnished with wonderfully fragrant stone pine furniture.

A reception is created. Old wood, used simply and comfortably, reflects the attitude to life in the Waldviertel: traditional and modern in a wonderful combination.

In July 2017
Christina Lindorfer complements the Einfalt family. After studying economics, she worked in development cooperation for several years. The responsible treatment of our environment is particularly important to the newly qualified herbalist.

The facade is renewed. The new vegetable field delivers a rich harvest.

A multi-purpose room with a communal kitchen, projector and e-bike charging station is being created. Two comfort rooms are furnished with pine furniture from our own forest. Christina offers the first herbal walks.

2020 und 2021
A special highlight is our new TÜV-certified playground for young and old.

The buffet in the guest garden has been redesigned and new grills have been purchased for our popular barbecue evenings. 

With a few essential steps, we have renovated the toilets in the interior. A special feature are the ceilings made of pine wood, which provide a pleasant smell. 

An additional meadow was leveled and provided with electricity and water connections. This has resulted in five new and very large pitches. 

The reception has a ramp for wheelchair users and prams as well as an electric, barrier-free door.

We have added a small kitchen and a cozy seating area to the multi-purpose room. This was also used by our cooking seminars and family weeks. Hemp panels on the ceiling of the multi-purpose room have improved the acoustics ever since.

In August our daughter Flora sees the light of day. Our second sunshine fills us with great joy.

Inclusion and thus barrier-free access to inn and campsite are important to us. That's why we want to have a barrier-free bathroom and toilet ready by spring 2022. This should make easier access for our guests in wheelchairs and with walking disabilities.
