My holiday in an Ausseer house

My ‘Home’ in Narzissendorf Zloam

The original ‘Brickl’ of Ausseerhaus welcomes those who come to stay with a cosy hug, while views open up from the light-suffused veranda, complete with its cosy dining area. What is a ‘Brickl’? Originally a vestibule, which created a ‘bridge’ between outside and inside.

And, just like people wear their decorative ‘G'wand’ – as Ausseers affectionately describe their traditional costume – Ausseer houses are adorned with characteristic decorated boards in the guise of all kinds of gable wood carvings and cut boards.
