About the property

350 year-old hunting lodge on the waterfall with panoramic views

Our forestry house is a unique holiday destination. It is located in Malerwinkel, the Luis Trenker memory lane, right at the entrance to Hohe Tauern National Park, Bad Gastein. For more than 100 years of Malerwinkel painting and photo opportunity is considered the most beautiful place of Koetschachtal. The Malerwinkel consists of an ensemble of 3 houses and 2 barns. The highest point home, the FORSTHAUS Malerwinkel we rent our two apartments. The 'apartment Malerwinkel' with 6 beds and the 'apartment National Park' with 3, maximum 4 beds. The house was inhabited until 2012 by a forester and was then, in a 2-year renovation period, prepared with love and care for a touristic use for special nature lover tourists. The quality of sleep and rest in house is unsurpassable. You only hear the whisper of the nearby waterfalls and the mountain stream. Our house is surrounded by 13 000 square meters of garden and grassland in an environment that many painters and photographers every year.

In university circles, our house has become known as 'Thesis Good' because it is here, written in a mixture of strength, energy and peace to theses and books. We love to have children in the house. There is much interesting to discover only in the decoration of the house. We also have over 100 books and games in the house. For our youngest guests we have cots, high chairs, baby bath, thermal plates, bottle warmers, slides and much more. We look forward to our guests who are more than tourists for us. We consider our guests as friends with whom we share the beauty and charm of our house. Come stay with us and spend wonderful days with us. We look forward to you ! Your family Ezinger

About Daniela Ortmann

I love traveling the world and strongly believe that traveling is the best investment in culture one can make. I was born in the Salzburg mountains, have lived and worked in many places around the globe but came back to Austria in 2001.

Daniela Ortmann purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why Daniela Ortmann chose Gasteinertal

Bad Gastein is a very special destination. In the time of the Austrian Emperor Franz Josef and his famous wife Sisi Bad Gastein was THE destination for the noble society. You can still feel that when you walk around the old city of Bad Gastein. The city was a requested holiday destination until the 1990s, when tourism was weak and an old realty investor bought 4 Hotels in the center, basically the center of the town. He promised to renovate everything he bought but never did anything but speculate that the buildings raise in value for selling them again. A lot of people here hated him for this. The Hotels basically fall down and the tourists did not visit this now kind of ugly center. Only in the last years, after the old man passing away new investors come to Bad Gastein and will bring the city back to former glory. In the range of 10 years we are sure to have repaired those ugly fruits of man speculating not only with realty but with peoples futures and hopes.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

There are only a very few 350 years old hunting lodges and almost all of them are not open to the public. Our hunting lodge is situated in a very scenic surrounding with waterfalls, mountains and forests. Shorter and longer hiking trails start right in front of the house and get our guests to energy spots, mountain lakes and a spectacular valley end where waterfalls come down from all sides. It is a very special place for people looking for something very special in mountains nature. You will never forget the relax of your sleeping in our house accompanied by the whispering sounds of the waterfalls and nothing else. Or the waking up facing a 3000 meter high glacier. Also at the inside of the house -we where carefully renovating it over a period of more than two years- we did what we could to make your stay not only a comfortable but a also a very charming one. You will surely not forget your vacation in our hunting lodge and we would be honestly happy to have you as our guests to share with you what we so much love.

Forsthaus Malerwinkel

  • 5 of 5

Von Anfang bis zum Ende, von der Auswahl im Internet über Buchung und Betreuung vom Vermieter meines Feriendomizils war ich sehr angetan. Das Forsthaus ist sauber und gepflegt und liegt in einer sehr ruhigen Ecke vom Kötschachtal. Der Vermieter , Hr. Ezinger; ist sehr freundlich und immer persönlich oder per Funk für seine Gäste da. Lässt keine Wünsche seiner Gäste offen und findet Zeit für ein persönliches Gespräch, was ich sehr genossen habe. Bei einer Wiederholung meiner Heilstollenkur nehme ich gerne diese Unterkunft wieder in die engere Auswahl. Viele Grüße , Cl. Hensel.
