berge is anything but ordinary. That’s the beauty of it! Known for his furniture designs, Nils Holger Moormann had never planned to manage a guesthouse. The listed building fell into his hands as an addition to a plot of land he purchased. In order to rescue it from decay, the building had to be renovated. And so the house, which can be traced back to 1671, has been carefully converted in Moormann’s signature streamlined style. Generous spaces, natural materials and distinct contrasts between the historical and the modern – minimalism underpins its interior design. Nearly all the sixteen self-catering quarters have a small but fully equipped kitchen. In the garden behind the house there are several modern outbuildings, including a sauna, which complete the berge experience.
In the berge newspaper you can find further information about the guesthouse.
