Interview with family Palle, family sport resort Brennseehof

About the joy of children, sports and the joy of being a host with heart and soul

The family sports resort Brennseehof in Carinthia enchants vacationers especially because of its unique location on the lake, directly at the foot of the Carinthian Nockberge mountains. For fishermen, Lake Brenn and nearby Lake Afritz are of particular interest – but what makes these two lakes so special?

Palle family: “Both lakes together have an area of about 100 ha. Thus, they are not among the very big ones in Carinthia, but they impress with their enormous fish and the charming location.

The Brennsee is located right outside the front door. Whether from the boat or from the land – it enchants and captivates everyone. Lake Afritz is also characterized by its naturalness. With few exceptions, the entire lake is accessible for fishing, and it is still exceptionally calm for a swimming lake. Lake Brenn, on the other hand, is more built up, from the boat this lake also shows its qualities.

Both lakes have a very good fish stock, which can be explained on the one hand by an exceptionally high own stock and on the other hand by annual stocking measures of the fish farm Feld am See “Kärnten Fisch”. With the fishing permit, both lakes can be fished, so every fishing enthusiast can choose “his” favorite lake and find the perfect ‘Platzerl’.”

Die beste Zeit zum Fischen am Brennsee sind die frühen Morgenstunden Anfang April bis ca Mitte Mai.

When is the best time (time of day/season) to fish for certain species?

Palle family: “Basically, the best and quietest time to fish is early April to about mid-May. Here, the number of guests is lower and the lake is not yet so busy with bathers. “The early bird catches the worm… or fish” – Basically we recommend the morning hours for fishing. Here, regardless of the season, the ideal conditions prevail and you have the feeling ‘the lake is all mine’ .

In autumn, the tranquility of the lake makes the fisherman’s heart beat faster again. Here it also becomes a little quieter again and you have the beautiful autumn sun in your face.”

With you, children can also learn to fish. What is the procedure of a children’s fishing course? Is there any preparation or prior knowledge needed from the parents?

The Palle family: “1-2 times a week we offer fishing taster sessions as part of our Kids Club program. Here, all interested parties can register directly at the reception. Through our ‘professional fisherman’ the kids get in about 1.5-2h the first insight into the world of fishing, can learn about the fish stock and start the first experiments themselves. These taster sessions are held on our nearby natural beach, a separate area that is made available exclusively to our fishermen.

In addition, once a week there is “fishing at the pond” at the fish farm Feld am See. Here the children or adults get tips and tricks from the professionals. This program item is free of charge as part of the Sonnenschein Card (regional card included during the stay). Fishing accessories are also provided free of charge. No preparation or prior knowledge is necessary.”

What are the requirements for a family fishing vacation to be an absolute highlight even for non-fishing family members and for everyone to have an unforgettable vacation?

Family Palle: “Even non-fishing family members get their money’s worth with us. From a large wellness offer, child care to sports classes (tennis, sailing, surfing, etc.), there is something for everyone. Vacation with us should be a vacation for the whole family. Everyone and anyone gets their money’s worth here!”

Apart from fishing, what are the highlights of a vacation at the Brennseehof family sports resort?

Family Palle: “Sport, family & wellness – all in one place for countless possibilities. Kids can play sports with mom and dad on vacation, go on excursions or simply enjoy the lake – or have fun in Sporty’s Kids World while the adults are all to themselves for once. Here everyone is guaranteed to find his perfect vacation spot. Sports enthusiasts will find their perfect vacation spot at Brennseehof. Just outside the hotel door are 12 tennis courts, a beach volleyball court, active beach for fitness classes… and the Krainer Sports School with the right equipment and the best coaches for a variety of different sports.”

What culinary specialties can guests look forward to at the Brennseehof family sports resort?

Family Palle: “Healthy and tasty and a little beyond the regional plate is our culinary motto: We seduce the parents with the best Alps-Adriatic cuisine. There’s also the finest for the children. For this, products from the region are used and vegetables from their own permaculture garden. We want to provide authentic vacation experiences and make our contribution to the next generation. We have also been awarded the Austrian Ecolabel for these efforts.”

Is there anything that makes your operation particularly unique?

The Palle family: “Our motto: ‘I burn for you’.

The joy of children, the joy of sports and the joy of being a host with body and soul: This is the philosophy of our family. With the family & sports resort Brennseehof we offer the conditions for an all-round successful vacation. We as a family are personally committed to ensuring that our guests experience the sports vacation they have always dreamed of – and at the same time enjoy all the amenities of a children’s hotel.

The secret of our success is revealed as soon as you spend a few days as our guest: We are all part of a dedicated team in which each and everyone bears responsibility and is thus part of the Brennseehof family. As a family business and passionate hosts, harmony is very important to us. As a working family, we also attach great importance to a pleasant atmosphere and optimal working conditions for everyone. The success proves us right. And that is also reflected in the high number of long-term employees from the region.”
