Markus and Zivit Achermann welcome you to Haus Otium.

From day one, this unique home has lovingly accommodated guests from around the world.

This house was first opened by my grandparents, and we are the third generation to carry on their legacy of a very close attention to detail.

We have developed a very loyal and international clientele.

Haus Otium and its three 4- and 5-star holiday apartments of varying size (Campanula, Helianthus, and Soldanella) has become a real jewel in the crown of tourism in the Bernese Oberland. We would be absolutely delighted to welcome you on your escape from your daily routine.

Welcome to Haus Otium

Markus and Zivit

Markus and Zivit Achermann purchased this apartment in 2002

Come in, take a nice deep breath, and make yourself at home.

'Haus Otium' is ideally located in a peaceful, south-facing setting overlooking Lake Thun.

Our three tastefully-furnished apartments, Campanula, Helianthus, and Soldanella, all boast a stunning view of Oberhofen, Lake Thun and the Alps.

The well-kept garden houses both a swimming pool and the house's private high-quality bio-sauna, which offer a great view of Lake Thun.

We value your time, and therefore have made Haus Otium the perfect place for a wellness trip, available to you 365 days a year. Choose whichever apartment you prefer and treat yourself to something special: nothing but joie de vivre and well-being!

The romantic town of Thun lies right on your doorstep...

Lying at the foot of the Bernese Oberland's Alpine landscape, Thun, Switzerland's tenth-biggest city, boasts an intact old town with magnificent historic buildings, squares, and raised sidewalks beneath the imposing Zähringen castle.

What can be done in a metropolis such as Paris has long been possible in Thun: a shopping-island full of stores, lovely cafés, and restaurants. Those of you looking for something unusual, rare, or typically Swiss will find everything you could want in the Haupgtgasse in the old town.

Come discover the wide range of culinary delights on offer: for every guest, whatever their preference, Thun has a restaurant to match.

Thun always has something on the go. Spend the mild summer evenings at one of the open-air cinemas, the Thunfest (every two years, along with the 'Seenachtsfest,' or 'night festival by the lake'), musical events at the Thunerseebühne, and – once the weather starts to cool – the various concerts, plays, and exhibitions. The area also has several museums and many other sights on offer. Even the nightlife leaves nothing to be desired.

Guests looking for even more adventure can try out the wide variety of water sports on offer in the area. Sailing, wind-surfing, or diving–the possibilities are endless!

Haus Otium lies on a sunny hillside by Lake Thun. This beautiful natural setting offers spectacular views over the lake.

This property is not only the ideal place to relax and recharge, but also the perfect starting point to discover the Bernese Oberland and the rest of Switzerland.

The view of Oberhofen castle is as awe-inspiring by day as it is intriguing by night or on foggy days, when it is lit up and gives off a mythical aura.

Haus Otium, overlooking Oberhofen, Lake Thun, and the Niesen, also known as the 'Swiss pyramid,' lies in one of Switzerland's most beautiful areas. We can guarantee that you'll enjoy the positive energy that emanates from the wonderful landscape.

The entire house has access to energised Grander water.

Our holiday apartments are furnished with high-quality Hüsler or Samin natural beds.

The nearby specialised food shops, which offer specialty bread, meat, cheese, etc., ensure that all your culinary needs are met, and the area's many superb restaurants only add to the luxury.

Thun's romantic old town is only 4.5 km away and is very easily accessible. Guests have free access to the house's 4 bicycles; alternatively, they can enjoy a nice walk on the esplanade along the lake. Furthermore, Oberhofen offers good public transportation in the form of buses and boats.

Guests can park their vehicles on the property's private parking space.

AMAZING APPARTMENT!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in Switzerland. The apartment is a beautiful, large and luxurious modern condo with breathtaking views of the Thunersee/Oberhofen/Alps.
The owner and house keeper were very friendly and ready to help with any question or concern. Very well located for any adventure at Bernese Oberlander or even to go around in Switzerland. We enjoyed Kandersted, Chateau Chillon, Gruyeres, Berne and the local castles. The trip in the boat at the Thunersee and Brienzersee is a must.
We can not wait to return

THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I spent a fantastic weekend in Oberhofen thanks to Otium Erholungs! The apartement is beautiful and clean, the kitchen equipped with everything we needed and beyond, the sauna was great and the landscape is just unbelievable. At night we walked along the lake to Thun (about 1 hour walk- beautiful!), there we had dinner in a very nice Italian restaurant and went to a concert we enjoyed very much- all according to owner Markus Achermann's recommandations. We had a wonderful time and got back home super relaxed and happy! Very romantic place and highly recommended!! Looking forward to stay there again!

OASIS OF SILENCE - OASE DER RUHE

  • 5 of 5
Die Residenz Otium war einfach zu finden und der Empfang herzlich. Schnell waren die Besonderheiten der Wohnung Helianthus und der Spa-Bereich im Erdgeschoss erklärt und einem langen erholsamen Wochenende am Thunersee stand nichts mehr im Weg. Die Wohnung mit 3 Doppelschlafzimmer ist sehr grosszügig und glänzt mit einer riesigen Fensterfront mit Blick auf den See und in die Berner Alpen. Die Liegen auf der Terrasse sind windgeschütz und so lassen sich die letzten warmen Sonnenstrahlen des Jahres bestens geniessen.
Die Küche ist mit allem Komfort und voll ausgestattet, wir haben jedoch nur Zuhause gefrühstückt und dafür von den in der Wohnung aufliegendenen Restaurantsempfehlungen Gebrauch gemacht (Vinothek in Thun ist ein Volltreffer).
Die Wohnung Helianthus hat zwei Badezimmer, wobei eines mit begehbarer Dusche komplett erneuert wurde und beim grossen Bad mit Wanne zum Teil ältere Armaturen belassen wurde welche jedoch voll funktionstüchtig sind und der Wohnung ihren Charme verleihen. Man sieht dass alle Erneuerungen durchdacht und mit Liebe zum Detail mit Schweizer Handwerkskunst erstellt wurden. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und man fühlt sich sofort Zuhause da alles so eingerichtet ist wie man es auch Zuhause machen würde. In der Garage stehen Mountainbikes zur freien Benützung. Direkt neben dem Haus führt ein Steig runter zum Dorf wo in der Bäckerei frisches Brot erhältlich ist. Sehr empfehlenswert ist auch der Tip vom Besitzer, ein Fussmarsch dem See/Aare entlang vorbei an Wohnquartieren und Villenviertel ins beschauliche Thun. Bern ist nur eine halbe Stunde entfernt, das Paul Klee Museum liegt direkt am Weg und ist ein Zwischenstop wert. In Bern ist das Restaurant Kornhauskeller nicht nur kulinarisch sondern auch optisch (riesiger Gewölbekeller) ein Besuch wert.

Wir haben ein fantastisches Wochenende am Thunersee verbracht. Besten Dank an den Vermieter und sein Team vor Ort - wir kommen gerne wieder und können das Objekt wärmstens empfehlen.

Golf: Interlaken-Unterseen is home to one of prettiest and most varied golfing landscapes in the entire country. Nestled between Lakes Brienz and Thun, within sight of the world renowned peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, this magnificent championship golf course was opened in 1966 and remodelled in 2004-2005 to make it more technically challenging.

Skiing: Even in the coldest months of the year, the Niederhorn (8.5 km away) offers a variety of activities:

The Thunersee-Beatenberg-Niederhorn railways will help you reach the starting point for your excursions.

The railways are wheelchair accessible.

The 4 ski runs with a 400 m height difference and the Beatenberg valley run offer pure winter fun. The family ski resort is great for beginners and experienced skiers and snowboarders alike.

The Niederhorn-Vorsass sled run cuts through the snowy winter landscape and boasts a fantastic view of Lake Thun, the Eiger, the Mönch, and the Jungfrau. The sled run is geared towards more experienced riders and is great fun for young and old. The ride to Vorsass lasts about 40 minutes.

In wintertime, hikers can choose from a wide selection of well-maintained winter trails. Hikes usually last between 1 and 3 hours.

The energised water is a real treat – whether taking a bath or shower, drinking from the fountain, or enjoying our bathing and wellness facilities. Years ago, when Johann Grander discovered the 'energising' of water, he could not have imagined the success his discovery would have across the globe. His method allows for water to regain its original energy, which is lost due to various environmental impacts and from being transported through piping. And there's more: the 'energising' process strengthens the water's natural magnetism. This changes the water's structure, and many people say it improves its taste, preservability, and users’ sense of well-being, makes better-tasting food, and much more.

Natural beds are made with completely natural materials, which have a positive effect on sleep quality and relaxation. Therefore, only the highest quality materials are used in making these beds. The materials used to make these 'dream beds' are comprised of purely natural, breathable cotton, filled with 100% organic sheep's wool from free-roaming sheep. Keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, the 100% natural sheep's wool pillows and covers provide a very comfortable dry-warm bed. The unique elasticity of ash wood and natural rubber is the main factor in reducing strain on the body as well as providing it with the necessary support during sleep, and the free-swinging blade grating also plays a major role in ensuring total comfort.
