6 Special Overnight Accommodations in Baden-Württemberg
Hideaways - that are remote accommodations in the rural idylls of Baden-Württemberg where you can find peace and tranquillity. Cosy holiday retreats in the midst of the wonderful nature of SouthWest Germany. The ideal location for people who like hiking, cycling and enjoying the landscape.
These six special hideaways are located in the Black Forest, at Lake Constance, in the Swabian Alb, the Stuttgart region, Upper Swabia-Allgäu and the Hohenlohe region and promise guests comfortable holiday experiences in the middle of the countryside.
1. Tree house hotel near Stuttgart
Nature Resort Tripsdrill
The tree house hotel in the nature resort Tripsdrill near Stuttgart offers hotel comfort at a height of up to 15 feet in the air.

Underfloor heating ensures cosy living comfort. The tree houses can be booked daily in winter and Wi-Fi is available free of charge. When staying in the tree house, a rich breakfast and admission to the wildlife park are included on all days of the stay.

2. Old Turned into New in The Black Forest
BRENNKÜCH Design Cottage
Sometimes something old becomes something new with a lot of creativity. In Gengenbach-Reichenbach in the Black Forest, guests at the BRENNKÜCH design cottage are greeted by the scent of wood, perhaps even a subtle aroma of spirits as Schnapps had been distilled there for decades. The Boschert family have turned a dilapidated farmhouse into a designer holiday home. Lovingly restored, equipped with their own woods, the house now offers stylish accommodation with a wood-burning stove and a mountain panorama with magnificent views.
The Black Forest is a beautiful place to visit, with rolling hills interspersed with deep forests. Plenty of well-sign posted trails make hiking and biking a pleasure through the countryside. Small towns with cafés and historic homes and churches offer a step back in time.
3. Tiny houses on an organic Farm At Lake Constance
The Gessler family offers pure country life on their organic farm in Markdorf at Lake Constance. The ecologically built tiny houses border directly on the chicken coop and orchard. While it is naturally cosy in the wooden houses, a wide meadow and forest landscape await outside. The igloo sauna, which guests can use themselves, offers maximum relaxation. The organic farm currently has a few hundred chickens - which provide delicious organic eggs and high-quality poultry meat every day, 20 acres of orchards and approximately 20 acres of forest, a small petting zoo and a farm garden full of fresh fruit and vegetables.
4. Charm and Seclusion in the Hohenlohe region
Ferienhaus Chalet at the Brettach River
A half-timbered house stands directly at the Brettach river, a tributary of the Jagst river. Guests enjoy the fireplace and sauna, and the tastefully furnished rooms are dominated by wooden furniture, leather accessories and fur blankets. A private path along the idyllic stream leads to endless pastures and meadows. The Hohenlohe region between Heidelberg and Stuttgart is close to the Castle Road, which is perfect for backpacking in an elegant and relaxed atmosphere. Visitors can discover gems in the castles, churches and picturesque towns or enjoy peaceful walks along the fields and in the forests. With its quality products and focus on sustainable agriculture, the Hohenlohe region offers some of the best conditions for growing fruit, vegetables and livestock.

6. Rustic and stylish domicile
Widmann's Alb.Leben Chalets
