Tiny House

Auszeit in den Bergen

Ramsau am Dachstein, Styria, Austria

Anyone who has ever wanted to spend the night in a tiny house is in the "TinyhAuszeit" accommodation of the Kirchlechner family in Styria.

The 18 m² Tiny House has been standing on the family property since April 2019, surrounded by the mountains of the Schladminger Tauern in the south and the Dachstein massif in the north. Whether snowy landscape or blooming wildflower meadows, the dreamlike mountain panorama accompanies the quiet break in Austria. The Kirchlechners are enthusiastic about the concept of sustainable and ecological Wohnwagon accommodation and wish that the guests also have the experience that for recreational holidays little material is needed.

The concept of the Tiny House corresponds to the principle of "less is more" and directs one's gaze to the essentials through the limited spatial space. It is decorated in a minimalist style and invites you to make yourself comfortable indoors. From the bunk bed guests can enjoy a great view of the mountains, from time to time even deer and deer walk past the window.

However, a small amount of space does not mean that guests have to do without something: The Tiny House offers a well-equipped kitchen with kettle, toaster, induction hot plate - even a mini oven with two additional hotplates and a "cooking bag" for sustainable cooking. A small dining table with two comfortable upholstered chairs in the bright bay window, a wardrobe with dresser and additional large storage under the bed make the Tiny House comfortable. A real tiled stove ensures cozy warmth even in winter. And in the mini-bathroom, there is not only toilet and sink but also a nice rain shower shower. Outside there is also a closet for storing hiking or ski boots and jackets and a private sun terrace.

We also featured this accommodation on our blog at Tiny House concept: five places to get to know each other.

ArchitectureThe Wohnwagon impresses with its proportions and organic form. Sustainability and natural, high-quality materials are part of the manufacturer's program (caravan). Thus the choice of materials is holistically ecological: The interior is made of solid wood furniture, the walls are insulated with sheep's wool, loam walls, the guests sleep on a very high-quality futon mattress, the woollen blankets are made of local loden. The interior fittings were carried out by the guests themselves and as the Tiny House is located in the Kirchlechner's garden, care was taken to ensure that it fits in with the ecological log cabin and blends in well with the landscape.

FoodAs a rule, the guests provide themselves with a small initial supply of coffee, tea and spices. A vegetarian breakfast, as well as varied, seasonal dinners can also be booked. Cooking is done with regional and organic foods. The offer is always happy with the preferences of the guests. Especially popular is the warm cereal breakfast consisting of millet porridge with fresh fruits, seeds and almond purée. In summer, herbs, salads and flowers come directly from your own garden. Upon request, all dishes can be served vegan as well. The caravan contains a cooking bag for sustainable cooking (without additional heat input) or for cooling food and drinks.

EnvironmentThe Kirchlechner family lives in an ecological log house with clay plaster walls and a photovoltaic system, which supplies the Tiny House. Heating is only possible with wood and solar energy. The host family also feeds mainly vegetarian and attaches importance to organic food. In addition, the waste is separated and composted organic waste. In the guest folder it is pointed out that the water, which comes from its own source directly from the mountain, should be used as sparingly as possible.

Well-BeingAs part of the so-called "time out", the Kirchlechners offer mindful mountain and snowshoe hikes, forest bathing, meditation, tai chi and holistic massages. For a fee a small sauna can be shared or E-Fatbikes can be rented. There is also an offer of vegetarian / vegan nutritional advice and cooking classes, time off coaching and introduction to meditation. On request, private ski lessons for beginners can be booked.
