Ponyhof family hotel & riding paradise - Happiness on Earth

Close-to-nature family holiday in the Green Heart of Austria

At the Ponyhof, you and your kids will feel happy all the time – literally. Our family hotel is situated on a high plateau, surrounded by lush green meadows and forests. Experiencing nature in the great outdoors is on the agenda here: from playful interaction with our good-natured horses to the petting zoo to exploring with forest educators and Kräuterhexen (lit: herb witches) or fun family hikes – we often drive you back with our tractor cab! Together with our loving childcare, our small yet refined spa means plenty of relaxation for mums and dads. With the GenussCard, you can explore over 120 destinations: entrance is totally free for you and your family.


In winter, your little ones can learn to ski right outside the hotel: there are professional instructors, a magic carpet and a ski carousel. Older racers whiz down the slopes at Hauereck or the family ski mountain, St. Jakob im Walde. For cross-country skiers, the Joglland trail has been awarded the Styrian quality mark and offers guaranteed fun in the snow.
