About the accommodation
Welcome to the first certified organic restaurant in the Osterzgebirge. Our hotel, one of the oldest and most traditional guesthouses in the region, awaits you in the wonderful nature of one of the most beautiful low mountain ranges in Germany. Vacation with us means to enjoy with all your senses, to find friends and to gain strength. We pay particular attention to the quality of the products we use, most of which are of ecological origin or from our region. We want to know exactly where the food we process and how it was produced comes from. We have been officially certified organic for eight years and as climate protection is very important to us, we operate our own combined heat and power plant, which saves around 25 tons of CO2 per year. A photovoltaic system generates additional electricity for our house. But we also make our house environmentally friendly in many other areas.
Our individual and cosy rooms, furnished with real wood, are all equipped with shower, toilet, hairdryer, TV, radio, free internet access via wifi and a seating area. If desired, iPhone/iPod docking stations or DVD players are also available. We have single, double and triple rooms as well as an apartment with separate bedroom in different sizes and layouts.
