Overnight in Längenfeld
After our journey to the Ötztal Valley, we stayed at Haus Birkenheim in Längenfeld. A short walk for food or thermal baths, this family run b&b was very comfortable and again, had that warm coziness I experienced all around this region. Furnishing are wood and cloth, soft earthy tones and calming decor. Until you walk upstairs and check out the taxidermy collection! I was also very interested in the Alpen man on the wall board — pegs stuck in with names, but of whom? A portrait of the family children greets you at the entrance. The common room – the stubbe – felt like a family den at a lake cabin – the smell of woodsmoke was in the air and the typical breakfast of cheese, breads, coffee and fruit was a delight. The view from our room was the one above, and waking up that morning to clear peaks and dancing shadows was the perfect start to another day in the Tyrol.
