1990

These three photos show the state of the house when we took it over. It was over 250 years old already.

This view is no longer possible because there is now a new house just besides ours

1996


We moved in Dez '95
.

The interior is nearly ready:


The small window
in the second (third) floor. (Sorry for the poor camera adjustment.) The lower edge of the window is about 10 cm below the floor niveau.


The Finnish soap stone oven in the first (second) floor, dining place and wooden stairs in the background
.


The "blue corner" and the Finnish soap stone oven
.


The cooking area
.


My parents enjoy a Chinese dinner
.


Finally a cappucino
from the espresso machine...

For what you could get if you would pay us a visit, look into the card of drinks of "Café Ruine". (That page is in German but includes a link to an English translation.)
Hier eine Karte von österreichischen und anderen Kaffeegetränken, die wir unseren Gästen anbieten.
