6 special accommodations
Hidden places for your vacation
SouthWest Germany's answer to the pandemic is the state's new hotel hideaways. They are little hiding places in rural idylls that offer traditional charm in the middle of nature.
These six special hideaways are located in the Black Forest, Lake Constance, Swabian Alb, Stuttgart, Upper Swabia and Hohenlohe regions and promise guests comfortable holiday experiences in the middle of the countryside.
1. Natur-Resort Tripsdrill
Tree House Hotels Near Stuttgart
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. A veranda is attached to each of the individually designed stilt houses, where guests can enjoy the evening hours in nature and, with a little luck, hear the wolves howling in the wildlife paradise from a safe distance and height! Underfloor heating ensures cozy living comfort. The tree houses can be booked daily in winter and WiFi is available free of charge. When staying in the tree house, a rich breakfast and admission to the wildlife paradise are included on all days of the stay. Overnight guests receive tickets for the amusement park when they book at special rates.
2. Brennküch Design-Ferienhaus
What is Old, Becomes New Again in the Black Forest
Sometimes something old becomes something new with a lot of creativity. In the town of Gengenbach-Reichenbach in the Black Forest, guests at the Brennkuech Hideaway 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 quarters complete with a wood-burning stove and a mountain panorama with magnificent views.
The Black Forest is a magnificent 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 cafes and historic homes and churches offer a step back into time.
3. Bioland-Hof Gessler
Overnights on Organic Farm at Lake Constance
The Gessler family offers pure country life on their organic farm in Markdorf on 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. Ferienhaus-Chalet an der Brettach
Charm and Seclusion on the Brettach River
A half-timbered house stands directly on the Brettach, a tributary of the Jagst. Guests enjoy the fireplace and sauna, and the tastefully designed 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 region of Hohenlohe between Heidelberg and Stuttgart is close to the Castle Road and the charming town of Ladenburg. This is a perfect area for backpacking in an elegant and relaxed atmosphere.
