Hainichhöfe

The Hainichhöfe are located on a small hill in the immediate vicinity of the Hainich World Heritage Site – a forested range of hills in the north-west of Thuringia – near the small village of Mülverstedt. With their wooden façades and large windows, they blend in visually with their surroundings and are places that invite you to come and relax.

Each of the six comfortable chalets offers seventy square meters of space for four people. The open-plan living and dining area, a separate bedroom with a double bed and the bathroom are all located on the first floor. The sleeping gallery upstairs can be reached via a staircase. All the houses are equipped with modern facilities – from the kitchens to the bathrooms, which are transformed into mini spas with infrared cabins.

The interiors, clad in light wood, are furnished in a modern Scandinavian style and radiate peace and security. The interplay of simple built-in cupboards, industrial-style lighting and color-coordinated textiles creates a bright and friendly atmosphere. The wood-burning stove in the living room, which is open up to the roof, provides cozy warmth. Every guest will find a place in the seating areas – whether for reading or simply putting their feet up. There are almost always places to sunbathe, as each house is surrounded on two sides by a terrace.

Nature is also present in every other corner of the houses: during construction, particular emphasis was placed on sustainability and regionality. The wooden modules were pre-assembled and assembled on site in order to protect the land near the nature park. The materials and furnishings were sourced almost entirely from Thuringian companies – from the wooden beams to the culinary welcome.

The Hainich in north-western Thuringia is the largest contiguous area of deciduous forest in Germany. The Hainichhöfe chalet village is located directly adjacent to the World Heritage Site on a small hill with an unobstructed view of the Thuringian basin. Each of the six comfortable chalets offers 70 square meters of space for four people.

Regionality was a priority in the construction. The wooden modules were pre-assembled and assembled on site. The materials and furnishings were sourced almost entirely from Thuringian businesses – from the wooden beams to the culinary welcome.

What to do

Whether hiking or cycling, cooking or yoga courses or excursions to cities such as Weimar, Jena, Erfurt and Eisenach - the surrounding area offers a wide range of activities.

Why we like this house

The Hainichhöfe are retreats in the middle of nature that combine simple design with coziness.

This house is great for

Single travelers or couples as well as families, but above all nature lovers, will find peace and relaxation here.

Wir waren schon zum zweiten Mal in den Hainichhöfen und kommen wieder! Ein perfekter Ort für einen Urlaub in der Natur mit der nötigen Ruhe und dem tollen Weiblick über die Landschaft. Super Häuser, bei denen es an nichts fehlt und sehr aufmerksame Gastgeber. Tolle Lage direkt am Nationalpark, wir hatten Fahrräder gemietet und mit unserer Tochter sehr schöne Touren gemacht. Definitiv sehr zu empfehlen.

Ein paar Tage der Ruhe zum Ankommen im neuen Jahr. Blick in die Weite, Schneespaziergänge im Wald, abends Feuer im Kamin und nachts die Weite des Sternenhimmels über einem. Ein perfekter Rückzugsort für den, der die Ruhe sucht. Aufmerksame Gastgeberinnen, bei denen man sich willkommen fühlt.

Traumhafter endloser Blick über die Landschaft, direkt vom Wohnraum aus. Mehr braucht man nicht. Obwohl die Chalet direkt nebeneinander stehen bekommt man von den anderen nichts mit. Wunderbare Gastgeber!!! Toller Service!!! Eine perfekte Auszeit!!!

Wir hatten ein wunderbares Paarwochenende in einem der sechs Chalets. Direkt am Nationalpark gelegen, konnten wir direkt vom Frühstückstisch auf Wanderung gehen. Besonders erfreut hat uns der "Willkommenskorb" mit lokalen Leckereien und die täglich frisch ans Haus gelieferten Brötchen. Claudia (eine der Damen des Hauses) war immer für uns erreichbar und sehr hilfreich. Wir bedanken und werden Unterkunft und Service weiter empfehlen!
