History of the house and its residents:

The forester's house on the edge of the forest

The Gradisch forester's lodge is located only a few metres below Gradisch Castle. It was once the castle forge and later a residence used by the Gradisch forestry company. The building was built in the 16th century as a pure stone structure. The meter-thick walls still radiate a great sense of cosiness today and give the residents a feeling of timelessness that can only be experienced and enjoyed in historic buildings.

From Oberglan, you can reach the forester's lodge via the barely frequented Schlossweg and then via Radweg, where you reach the main road again. The entire environment is pure nature. No unsightly view spoils the sight. Only forest and fields surround the property. A small stream, which rises at the estate's own spring, ripples along the playground. The spring water is said to have legendary healing powers (see anecdote). Those who want to taste it can do so by the little fountain next to the new swimming pool and put a water jug on the lunch table. 

More than 50 years ago, the house came into our hands through inheritance. Successively, the entire building complex was renovated; the roof was renewed, raised and extended, the stable building was made habitable and the blacksmith's shop was converted into an entrance hall and living areas.

In 2021 and 2022, a general renovation of the entire property took place. A deep drilling with 7 times 100m boreholes now supplies the house with ecological heat through a heat pump. A new underfloor heating was installed and the entire electrical system and installations were renewed. Each of the 5 bedrooms was equipped with its own bathroom. In addition to the bedrooms, our guests have 4 lounges at their disposal. The 50m2 large Zirbenstube with tiled stove, dining table for 12 people and two sitting areas, the library with TV and games table, the large TV room with Jogltable for handicrafts on the ground floor and the entrance hall with an antique billiard table. The new infinity pool is 4x8 m with counter-current and automatic cover. The sauna can be used for 4 people.   

The story of Tröpferl Peter

Around the middle of the 19th century, the lord of the castle lived with his young wife and two little boys at Gradisch Castle. Unfortunately, a terrible illness hit him far too early. Unspeakable headaches tortured him day and night. So he put his head under the healing spring water and let the drops bring him relief. The people in the area therefore called him "Tröpferl Peter" (Peter was his first name). When he nevertheless passed away soon, his young wife moved to Vienna with their two boys and entered the service of Empress Sissi as a lady-in-waiting, where she soon rose to become the feared Obersthofmeisterin and lived at Schönbrunn until the empress's assassination.
