The hotel is located in the middle of Regensburg’s old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in one of the city’s approximately 1,000 heritage buildings.

Kesslerstadel

Since the 16th century, the Kesslerstadl has stood near the village church in the centre of Matrei in East Tyrol. From the outside, it is hardly noticeable that the former hay barn, a listed building, now houses two modern holiday flats. The BergsteigerSEIN flat, located on the upper floor of the former barn, is accessed via the back of the building, which is nestled against the slope. The terrace leads into the large living room, which is characterised by old beams, bright spruce panelling, straight-lined fixtures made of black multiplex boards and a large window front with a loggia behind it.

Scenery: In the village

Strandvilla auf der Ostsee

Due to its location on a pier in the Baltic Sea resort of Olpenitz near Kappeln, a town situated on the Schlei, the Strandvilla gives guests the impression of living in the middle of the Baltic Sea. To the front you can enjoy a view of a bathing bay, to the back you have a wide view over the Baltic Sea and the Schleimünde nature reserve. However, not only the location is special but also the house. The cubic building is clad with extraordinary bricks from Denmark. The interiors are distinguished by panoramic windows that extend over the entire front and rear façade. If the sliding doors are opened, the sea breeze can be felt blowing through the house…

Umamma

In the Umamma apartment in the small Tuscan town of San Miniato, the Middle Ages are combined with industrial style. The apartment is extraordinary and will elicit a “Wow!” from many guests—or “umamma” as they say in Tuscany for something very amazing. It took seven years to restore and transform the rooms located on the first floor of an old 16th century palazzo. The original structure of the interiors was reconstructed and the historical materials were exposed. The back of the building was opened up, and large windows were added to frame the views over the Arno Valley. The 230 sqm flat is unusually generous in size but the truly unexpected space is hidden in the vaulted basement…

StadtmauerQuartiere

The StadtmauerQuartiere (town wall quarters) are two small holiday flats in the middle of the historic centre of Freinsheim, a small town in the Palatinate region. The townscape is characterised by a historical town wall with towers and gates. The StadtmauerQuartiere are located directly at and partly even on this wall. The apartments are designed in a contemporary, clear design vocabulary that contrasts with the historical context but fits in sensitively.

Loft in der Nudelfabrik

Zeitz—located in the south of Saxony-Anhalt between Jena and Leipzig—is a city in upheaval. One of the initiatives intended to revitalise the former industrial town is the conversion of a former pasta factory into a creative location. In 2017, Birgit and Mathias Mahnke bought the factory dating from 1909 and have since been developing the 12,000 square metre premises into a place for the visual arts and virtual reality—with exhibition areas, a co-working space and accommodation for artists.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Saxony-Anhalt, Zeitz

The listed ensemble consisting of a 13th century manor house, a historical Stadl (the former farmhouse) and the contemporary Villa Notsch is situated on a huge plot of land directly adjacent to the glacial river Isel.

During the time he is not using the studio, it can be rented.

Casa2020

The holiday apartment in the west wing of the building ensemble is accessed via the impressive inner courtyard with saltwater pool.

Zum Egle 1336

Concrete and the Middle Ages! Zum Egle 1336 is a B&B with two rooms in the historic old town of Constance. Opening up instead of covering up was the maxim of the building’s renovation. Traces of the past were meticulously uncovered and put on display. For example, the raw walls of the two guest rooms show remains of old floral wallpaper and medieval murals with images of saints and banners.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Baden-Württemberg, Constance at the Lake Constance

Scenery: In the historic centre, just 300 m from Lake Constance
