Holidays on a Farm

Farms provide the perfect setting for idyllic holidays. Instead of the hectic pace and anonymity of city life, guests are treated to a personal level of service and hospitality. For families with children, a farm stay is a great alternative to a hotel. The farms often have a range of pets which the children can handle and feed, and many also organize fun activities for a hands-on experience. Helping with the cows or the harvest, walking, fishing, cycling or horseback-riding all offer visitors the chance to experience something new. And many farms sell their own produce, so you can try specialities such as homemade sausages and cheese, wine and fruit juices. 

German farms are subject to strict quality control. Depending on the type, they may be classified as "Landurlaub" (vacation in the countryside) or "Urlaub auf dem Bauernhof" (vacation on a farm). Those bearing the "Urlaub auf dem Bauernhof" designation still actively work their farms. Those classified as "Landurlaub" are no longer actively involved in agriculture. These are generally former farms, country hotels, country houses or guesthouses with typical regional charm.
