The holiday apartment is located on the ground floor of a converted chalet from 1979, surrounded by the Upper Bavarian alpine landscape. As usual for a typical Bavarian chalet, you will find the traditional wooden chairs and antlers on the wall. Apart from that, the 70-square-metre studio is modern and straightforward, with a poured concrete kitchenette, concrete ceilings and clay wall heating. The apartment harmoniously blends contrasts and captivates with a peculiar mix of materials, textures, colours and design elements that give the classical chalet-type a contemporary twist. Patterned oriental carpets and red cushions add colour accents while the pine-clad wall and the fireplace radiate a warm atmosphere. Through the large windows and from the terrace, you have a magnificent view of the mountains and Lake Walchen, which is just 100 metres away. The largest mountain lake in Germany is also one of the deepest and impresses with its turquoise-green colouring.
