Around 80 km from the Kulmer fish restaurant lays the bed-and-breakfast Villa Thalhof, constructed in 1879. Franz Kulmer’s fascination with old architecture was very pronounced, even at an early age. So, he decided that during his apprenticeship in Bad Gleichenberg, he would live in the Thalhof bed-and-breakfast, which, within a short time, would become his second home. When the former owner of the bed-and-breakfast retired, she left Villa Thalhof in good hands. Because Franz’s heritage and family are very important him, he decided to take over operation of, and restore, VIlla Thalhof together with his Anni.
