Our estate is an essential additional foundation for all our offers in the field of nature experience & animal-assisted eco-education.
To the farm
Did you know?
St. Martins is much more than a luxury thermal bath resort. As St. Martins Estate, we are also an eco-educational farm. We keep old breeds of domestic animals and practice active land management. In this way, we create habitats for biodiversity and the prerequisite for our actual "From the Estate - Ab Hof" offer: Your deeply relaxing getaway.
To the sponsorships
Become an animal sponsor of one of our St. Martins' animals.
The contribution to the sponsorship is used entirely for the welfare of the animals at the St. Martins Estate.
What is Green Care?
Activities in nature and contact with animals have numerous positive effects on the spiritual, mental, physical and social well-being of humans.
A certified Green Care farm uses these resources for social and educational services according to high externally audited quality standards. It guarantees the professionalism of its services and makes an important contribution to increasing the quality of life and health. For the farm itself, Green Care represents an additional opportunity for economic security and thus contributes to the preservation of small-scale Austrian agriculture.
Member of the White Baroque Donkey Association!
The association, which has been in existence since 2011, takes care of all concerns relating to the white Baroque donkeys, the only officially recognised donkey breed in Austria. As a member of the board represented by Mag. Elke Schmelzer, St. Martins supports the association and keeps 3 animals on our farm.
Why are baroque donkeys white? What do donkeys eat and how do you keep them? And what distinguishes the donkey from the horse? You can learn this and more at the St. Martins estate. There is a small herd in the eco-educational barn at St. Martins Spa & Lodge. The donkeys are part of animal-assisted interventions (TGI) with our guests and additionally help to maintain the pasture-like steppe landscape on the grounds of St. Martins.
