DISCOVER 55+ Day 1 Starting from 2 p.m.: arrival of our guests at the hotel (3 stars). An ambassador of the region welcomes and accompanies them during their stay, passing on things to know, sagas and stories about the region and its inhabitants. Outing to a honey farm. There you learn about the production of honey and its active ingredients. The delicious smell of beeswax is in the air and reminds us of the upcoming Christmas holidays. You form your own candle out of liquid beeswax. Dinner at the hotel. Presentation of the region through pictures.

Day 2 Day-trip along the former volcanic hills to three famous and popular tourist attractions. The fascinating story about the Weltmaschine built by Franz Gsellmann in Edelsbach, the emotional seduction during a visit at Vulcano’s ham heaven and a tour through the chocolate theatre of Josef Zotter charm the visitors. Once seated inside the chocolate theatre everything revolves around the cacao bean and more than a hundred varieties may be tasted during the visit. In conclusion of the day, we’ll visit the Christmas exhibition at the baroque Castle Kornberg. Dinner is served at the hotel.

Day 3 Visit to a gardener. Festive floristic, like the creation of traditional Advent wreaths, puts us in a wonderful mood for the quietest time of the year. Everybody leaves with an own workpiece.
