New perspectives of the ”Plattln”
A 270 m2 large pond with bays. In the summer: an experience biotope
with waterfall. In the winter: Mürztal's first "Ice Stock-Pond
Billiard" with 50 cm high frozen bank around the pond. This new
sport discipline requires not only strength, but feeling, tactics and
techniques such as in billiards. This "more intelligent" ice
stick shooting (Eisstockschiass`n), is great fun and is an folksy sport
in an “ur” styrian environment. Also ladies and children
can indulge in "Ice Stock-Pond Billiard" much fun for everyone
in a totally original game.
Beginners are first given instructions and become personally trained
by Xaver, who is the inventor of this new kind of sport. As a "reward" you
will get during or after the game delicious tings such as Gluhwine,
Heidelbeerchen or Childrenpunsch,
GINKGO BARON (natur)
GINKGO PRINCESS (with Williams
GINKGO ROYAL (with rowan berry)
Swiss stone pine or dwarf pine from our own land made
by Maria, and many things more. Muerztaler Buergerschmarr`n with Zwetschkenroester,
smoked fresh trout served warm and other styrian specialities crown
the culinary framework of this sport novelty.
Ice Stock-Pond Billiard, beautiful and unique environment, you can
indulge in immediately at the "Lido of Spital" at the steirischen
Semmering, in Xaver`s country house. This special kind 4-Star Hotel,
is a culinary experience to be indulged in.
