Our home

Our cosy cottage is comfortable, clean, and fully equipped. It has an open kitchen, dining area and living room with a tiled stove in one room. It is furnished with built in wooden benches, chairs and sideboards in the traditional way and we added a comfortable new sofa.
We have two bedrooms, one bigger room with double bed and bunk bed and one room with a queensize bed and a bunk bed for little children.
We have a bathroom with a washing mashine and a separate WC.
There is space for 4 - 6 people (possibly space for 4 small kids and 4 adults).
The terrace in the south is roofed and with a view to the mountains of "Wilder Kaiser".
The fully wooden cottage was built in 1984 by Sabine's aunt and is recreation space for us, friends and family at the weekend.
In the winter it is heated with wood the central tiled stove and there are small electric ovens in each room. There is a garage, which is really helpful during the snowy days.
We build a nice treehouse in the garden for the kids last year, where they love to stay all day long and there is enough space in the garden to play a little soccer while the others sitting in the sun.
There is no WiFi in the house, as we do use our mobile phones to access to the internet. But the mobile network works well in this area and you can easy purchase a local sim card for a reasonable price in the very helpful post office in Kössen.
