Travelogue: Top of the World! An Experience on a Tree House

September 4, 2017

I used to build tree house in the forest near my home during my school and college days. Along with my brothers and friends we used to spend considerable time in it, especially during Christmas and summer holidays. Hence I developed affinity towards tree house, hill tops, landscaping and farming.

With this background I happened to spend a day on the tree house along with my wife and son at Wiantalgasse, Krems-Land, Austria.

I was late to book rent-a-car and available options were too expensive, thus started by train from Vienna. It took around two hours to reach this place; most of the route was abundantly scenic. I had booked this place nearly 10 days in advance. I had tried a few other places but they were sold out.

Johanne and Bettwere were very kind and we were well received. John politely explained to us the stability of the structure, utility and menu options. As an amazing surprise, this house turned out to be better than what we imagined and expected.

On the outside, there was plenty of space to relax, with hammocks, swings, BBQ facility, wooden table and chairs with classic touch. What more do you need?

This tree house had it all. Good powerful Wi-Fi all around, wine, beer, juices, breakfast packets, coffee, tea and so on.

A perfect getaway with peaceful and green surroundings filled with tranquility. Weather was awesome with temperature around 20 degree C.

Next, the entrance to the house, a suitable dining area, sofa-cum-bed, modern bathroom and separate WC, refrigerator, and separate small one for wine, air conditioners in hall and bedroom. There was a separate dining facility on the balcony facing the mountain with candlelight. The house was fitted with beautiful lighting and electrical connections and adaptors.


My wife cooked rice, daal and chicken fry. We had carried curd and a few varieties of pickles and zucchinis and lemon for tequila. We had a satisfying dinner and tasty wine.

This tree house looked even more amazing to me in the glowing lights of the night and the passing cool breeze.

This tree house is surrounded by vineyards, peach farms and so on in the midst of green mountains, beautiful narrow roads, Occasional bells ringing from ancient churches to break the silence of the mountain terrain.


To sum up, a worthy place and value for money, and a home away from home.

I have also been building a tree house near my home in my native for the past one year, though it cannot compare to the above.

    Such Tree-houses be built in certain Forest areas for promoting tourism. I find such beautiful houses very beautiful and it is very enjoyable to spend few days in such houses. I draw Karnataka govts. Tourism Department to draw up a scheme for construction of such wood houses as picnic spots.
