For years, wealthy businessman Friedrich Sattmann and his family have spent their summer holidays in the Tyrolean village of Lahnenberg. The residents of the village have found a place in the Sattmann’s hearts, an affection the Sattmanns believe to be mutual. More than dismayed they come to realise, however, that the opposite is the case and that in the eyes of the locals they represent the worst stereotypes of German ‘Piefke’.
The series sparked controversy among German and Austrian audiences and caused Austrian hoteliers to fear the loss of German guests.
