The Hainich in the northwest of Thuringia is the largest continuous deciduous forest in Germany. Directly adjacent to the World Heritage the chalet village Hainichhöfe sits on a small hill with an unobstructed view to the Thuringian basin. Each of the six comfortable chalets offers on 70 sq m of space for 4 people. Walls, floors and ceilings made of wood and the fireplace create a cozy cottage ambiance whilst the simple decor in Scandinavian style adds a modern touch. Sustainability and regionalilty are central to Hainichhöfe. Since the timber module houses were pre-transported to the site and placed on screw foundations, interventions to conservation areas in the natural park could be minimized. The houses, including furnishings, are 90 percent Thuringen-made – from the wooden beams to the welcome basket of local produce.
