The last train passed many years ago, and today the former signalman´s house is secluded in the quiet, hilly landscape of the Saxon Vogtland. A Dutch-German family from the Black Forest fell in love with the 150 year old house and revitalised the building. The house is to be their retirement home one day, but before then guests can enjoy their holidays in this picturesque retreat.
The conversion and ecological restoration of the house took three years. The ground floor interior walls were removed, the top floor was completely demolished and rebuilt with solid wood walls. A wall heater under loam and a Danish stove provide cosy warmth. In 2015 the house was extended by a solid wood annex with an additional living room and a third bedroom and now can accommodate up to eight people. When the weather is nice you can relax in the big garden or explore the surroundings. The former railway embankment has also been converted into a fantastic bike path.
What to do
Cycling trail from Oelsnitz to Falkenstein, dams Pirk and Pöhl, Plohn leisure park, dragon cave Syrau, golf, excursions to Göltzschtalbrücke and Greiz. In winter cross-country skiing on the Kammloipe.
