Fiss, our home - this is where we stay.

In the summer of 2010, we were able to take over the entire farm from our parents and thus the heartfelt guest care and farming are in our responsible hands. Your holiday with us should be relaxing, family-friendly and, above all, healthy, with the personal and family touch being particularly close to our hearts.

„Greetings, I'm Thomas"

I was born in 1974, after primary school I completed the main ski school in Neustift (Stubaital) and the carpentry apprenticeship in Prutz. As a state-certified ski instructor and ski guide, I have been working at the Fiss ski school since 1990. Since summer 2016, I have also been running a small sawmill in Fiss and try to continue this oldest trade in Fiss in the spirit of Ulrike's late father. As the captain of the Fiss marksmen's company and deputy chairman of the Fisser Blochziehen, I also like to do voluntary work in our village. Of course, I also support my wife at the museum in Fiss.

„Welcome, I am Ulrike (née Riezler)"

I was also born in 1976 in Fiss and after primary school I attended the 5-year Ferrari School (Höhere Bundeslehranstalt für wirtschaftliche Berufe) in Innsbruck. Afterwards I got a taste of tourism as a receptionist in the Schlosshotel and in the tourism association in Fiss. I am very interested in the history and culture of Fiss, I am the chairwoman of the museum association in Fiss and have saved the oldest farmhouse in Fiss from decay with many helpers. At the moment I am very interested in the herbs of our region and their healing powers.

"Hello, it's Elena"

At the moment, I am rarely to be found on the farm, as I attend the higher school for media design in Innsbruck. Because of the distance, I live in a boarding school in Innsbruck during the week. In my free time I like to meet my friends, read an exciting book or play the electric guitar.

"Hello, I am Johann"

I am the youngest in the house. I was born in 2010 and my favourite thing is to be on the slopes, whether on skis or a bike. I am also looking forward to meeting you!

Family – the most important thing of all!

Only together are we strong, but together we are good.

Ambassadors of the farming world!

Small scale and in the heart of the village – just as our farm has always been. We show you what active farming is all about.

Preserving the old and proud of it!

Tear down or preserve? We are proud of the fact that we decided to preserve the old farmhouse and keep the sawmill running.

Keeping traditions and customs alive!

Local traditions are an important part of our culture. We are keen members of various cultural associations:

  • Thomas: “Schützenhauptmann” (captain of the marksmen), “Blochziehen” (log pulling), museum association
  • Ulrike: Chairlady of the museum association, parish council
  • Elena: Young farmers’ association
  • Johann: Fire brigade, “Schützenkompanie” (company of marksmen)
