The Kapitänshaus (captain’s house) Wieck is a lovingly restored house with a view of the Bodden lagoons in the resort of Wieck auf dem Darß on Germany’s Baltic coast. Dating back to 1850, the house is heritage listed and situated amidst a mature garden with beautiful old trees. From the thatched roof that hangs over the façade to the windows and the front door, the building displays all the typical elements of a traditional Darßer house. Inside, the Darßer house floor plan has been preserved: the living and sleeping areas are accessed via a central corridor, while the kitchen forms the heart of the house. By removing a wall between the two living rooms and opening the kitchen out to the glazed extension, the house now also features spacious open rooms. An old wooden staircase leads to the attic, where you will find three further bedrooms, a bathroom and a sauna.
