When it snowed, preventing any carriage traffic, these horses had no work. For the winter, they were put into a winter stable (Winterstellgut).
With the renovation of the Winterstellgut in 2004, the inn once again provided a home for the horses. Today, world-renowned Haflinger horses are bred here, receiving the appropriate professional care and training on the pastures below the building and in the exercise area next to the pond, and kept in the paddock behind the main building.
The romantic way to reach the Winterstellgut is also linked to horses: in both summer and winter, a romantic carriage ride to the doorstep can be arranged on request.
