In summer a terrace with garden furniture and barbecue invites you to linger, where you can watch the bats at dusk. In the winter you can rock in the rocking chair to watch the dancing snowflakes, dream on the crackling fire and relax after a nice winter walk in the sauna. The rock pool is equipped with a wall surfaces and floor heating

Edel und Gemütlich

  • 5 of 5

Haben eine sehr schöne Woche im Ferienhaus Feuerzauber verbracht, das Haus ist edel und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Draußen viel Schnee drinnen der gemütliche Ofen, und die Sauna besser geht es nicht. Schön ist auch das man vom Haus direkt in den Wald spazieren kann. Danke für die guten Tipps, den Schnee und die wirklich sehr nette Betreuung von Frau Kuhfittig.

Kommen bestimmt noch mal wieder.

Haus Feuerzauber - einfach zauberhaft

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Kurzurlaub, vom 27.12. - 01.01.2018, im Haus Feuerzauber sehr genossen! Frau Kuhfittig ist sehr, sehr nett und immer sehr bemüht, ihren Gästen den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie nur irgendwie möglich zu machen.

Naturliebhaber kommen hier definitiv auf ihre Kosten. Zahlreiche lohnenswerte Wanderungen, die teilweise direkt am Haus beginnen, werden abgerundet durch einen anschließenden Saunagang im Ferienhaus. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder, zu einer anderen Jahreszeit.

Super Ferienhaus, nette Vermieterin, kurze Strecken zu den Wanderwegen und auch bei Regen kann man am Feuer und in der Sauna den Tag genießen.

Ein echter Geheimtipp!

Het verblijf in Magic Fire was aangenaam. Het huisje is zeer schoon, compleet ingericht en voorziet bijna overal in. Buiten een tafel met stoelen en bank, geen parasol. De eigenaresse woont dichtbij, bijzonder aardig, en geeft gewenst allerlei tips voor fietsen en wandelen in de buurt. De slaapzolder is wel lastig bereikbaar, maar hier wordt binnenkort iets aan gedaan om de toegang te verbreden. Supermarkt op loopafstand, handig. Keuken is erg klein en niet zo praktisch ondanks alles aanwezig is. Badkamer met regendouche en sauna. Alles ziet er prachtig uit, met oog voor details! Af en toe ook broodjes voor het ontbijt gekregen.

Dorp Zella Mehlis niet bijzonder, paar aardige restaurants, maar verder weinig te beleven. In het dorp wordt veel verbouwd dus het ziet er niet aantrekkelijk uit. Weinig tot geen winkels. In de omgeving kan er veel gewandeld worden (ook direct vanuit huis), de wandelkaarten van de tourist info zijn niet voldoende om de weg te vinden (en alleen maar in Duits, in hele gebied niets in Engels), een serieuze wandelkaart of GPS is aan te bevelen. Fietsen rond rivier Werra (redelijk plat) was leuk, Rennsteig is ook in de buurt . De omgeving is verder prachtig qua natuur als je van veel oude en donkere bossen houdt. Ruppberg is de huisberg van Zella Mehlis, in het weekend met horeca op de berghut met voornamelijk locals. Lijkt of er weinig touristen hier komen!

From Zella-Mehlis you can undertake various hikes, for example to the famous "Rennsteig" hiking trail, to the winter sports resort of Oberhof, to the "Waffenstadt" Suhl to the "Dombergbaude", to the ski and hiking hut to Oberschönau, to the Ruppberghütte or to the Schneidersgrund , in Zella-Mehlis.

In winter, the trails are groomed for skiers, so that they also get their money in the entire Rennsteig region. Oberhof, with its sports facilities, is only 11 km away. Here is the well-known Biathlon World Cup, there is the bobsleigh track and the ski hall, which can be used throughout the year.

Due to the good highway connection also day trips to Erfurt, Weimar, Coburg, Ilmenau, Eisenach, Meiningen or Schmalkalden are possible.

In the village there is the most popular tourist attraction of Thuringia, the "Meeresaqarium", with the large shark tank and a crocodile house. In Zella-Mehlis you will receive a guest card, which offers many discounts on entrance fees and restaurant visits.
