Altes Schifferhaus

The Alte Schifferhaus (old sailor house) in the village of Wieck in the Western Pomerania Lagoon Area National Park combines the traditional ambience of a more than 250-year-old listed building with contemporary comfort and modern design. During the renovation of the half-timbered house much emphasis was placed on sustainability as well as the preservation and authentic restoration of the original structure. Natural materials such as mud-plastered walls and ceilings, the façade made of (partly historical) wooden boards and the reed covered roof ensure a healthy indoor climate. The 240 square meter house sleeps up to eight people. On the ground floor with four bedrooms and a large kitchen the historic floor plan has remained unchanged. In the attic a 135 sqm large open living area has been created with a view on the large garden filled with old trees.

What to do

The Darß offers excellent conditions for hiking, cycling, swimming, kayaking, surfing and sailing. The landlord invites you to a sailing trip on his old fishing boat "HULDA". If you prefer more natural and sporty activities, then Henrik Schmidtbauer is happy to show you his favorite places on the water by kayak. He is also a good contact person if you are interested in climbing trees.

Why we like this house

A stylishly renovated Darßer house with a timelessly modern decor and plenty of space.

This house is great for

Holidays with family and friends.

  1. Wir sind im Juli mit unseren Kindern für eine Woche Gast im AltenSchifferhaus gewesen. Eine Adresse, die sich wohltuend vom Einerlei der Ferienhauskultur an der Ostsee abhebt. Mit Liebe zum Detail und Wahrung der historischen Vorgaben haben die Besitzer ein Ambiente geschaffen, das zum Wiederkommen einlädt. Wir werden diese Oase auf dem Darss sicherlich wieder ansteuern.
