About the family run apartment houses:
The Country house Antonia was built in the 1930’s and in the 1950’s the White Horse Inn was also converted into guest apartments. Since that time the houses have been run as a family business. Sisters Christine and Elfriede continue to offer true Austrian hospitality to their international guests in the form of comfortable, generously sized and sunny self-catering apartments. What sets them apart is their beautiful 5.000 sqm garden, available for use by the guests and a safe outdoor paradise for children. The houses, in the center of Bruck, are also ideal for large groups, as up to 42 adults can be hosted in the 8 apartments.
