About the accommodation

Our biodynamic farm is embedded in the unique cultural landscape above Interlaken, which borders on wild nature with deer, chamois, ibex, eagles and many other animals and offers many hiking possibilities. Cosy single and double rooms as well as group and family accommodations, an organic stain with exquisite home-made products and the opportunity to meet, exchange and learn in nature - all this is the Maiezyt. A place where children and school classes in particular can get involved and be accompanied sensitively. Here you can live in harmony with nature and our animals and here you will find new impulses and ideas how we humans can live and work together. Experience our community, be inspired and welcome. We are a small community of practical idealists, some of whom have a great deal of experience in life and who took over the Maiezyt farm in May 2016 on a cooperative basis in conjunction with the Swiss Bio-Foundation.

Accommodation

Our beautiful main house from 1868 houses our Bio-Beizli, the single and double rooms as well as a large holiday apartment. On the opposite side of the street is our group house Schwendihütte, built in 1755, which offers a total of up to 50 people the perfect setting for nature vacations, organic holidays, country school weeks or scout camps, as well as seminars, work and training meetings and conferences. The unique cultural and natural landscape, the diversity of wild animals and farm animals in and around the farm, as well as products from the dairy and smokery provide the backdrop for an unforgettable stay in the Maiezyt at any time of the year. Our Bio-Beizli offers beverages and dishes made from organic ingredients. In addition, the products of our biodynamic farm such as yoghurt, quark, cream, butter, ice cream, muesli, mountain cheese, ham and bacon from alpine pigs, goat salami or various types of beef and pork are on sale here.

Surroundings and activites

Habkern lies in the heart of the Bernese Oberland, above Interlaken at an altitude of 1,200 metres. The embedded moorland Habkern-Sörenberg is one of the largest moorland areas in Switzerland. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau from the surrounding alpine pastures and discover the living traditions of a typical mountain village. In addition to its marvellous nature and tranquillity, our village has a heated swimming pool, a sports field, a small ski area, cross-country skiing trails, mountain biking, touring ski and snowshoe trails as well as an extensive network of mountain and winter hiking trails. Interlaken is only a quarter of an hour's drive away and offers an almost unlimited range of outdoor activities. The large ski areas of the Jungfrau region and the Schilthorn are only 40 minutes by car from the farm and in summer the deep blue colours of Lake Brienz and Lake Thun invite you to dreamy boat trips, sailing, surfing and swimming adventures.

Location and getting around

You can reach Hof Maiezyt easily via the A8 motorway and the Interlaken-West exit is only twelve kilometres away. After leaving the motorway, drive in the direction of Habkern. From there the road to our farm is signposted. Since some navigation devices show deviating routes, we recommend that you follow the signs in Habkern. Interlaken is also the nearest train station (Interlaken-West). From Interlaken-West train station, there is bus 106, which takes you to Habkern, Post. From there it is a 30 minute walk to us. The Sporthotel offers a shuttle bus service.
