The house was built in 1935 as a pure summer house and has been family-owned for generations. Enlargement in 1956 and total reconstruction and modernization in 1985. As a holiday home for guests newly furnished since 2006.

We always touch the history of this house, which is closely connected with our family. As a summer house with strangers in the 30s of the last century, the ancestors inhabited it as "summer freshness". After refuge and expulsion from the neighboring Sudetenland at the end of the war, the family found shelter in the "Waldklause". The grandmother lived there until her death in the 80s. Then the house passed to our generation. We renovated and modernized from the ground up and used it as far as the great distance allowed - in many holiday stays with our growing children at any time of the year.

A part of the house was inhabited by Untermietern. From 2006 we built the apartment "Fernsicht" in the upper floor to the apartment and managed the rental since then very successfully over fewo-direkt.

Since we ourselves were retired and wanted to meet many other destinations, we decided to offer the lower apartment as a holiday apartment. We have the furnishing here largely in our personal home style.

Meanwhile, many of our guests love it, too

 ALL HOUSE to spend family holidays in 3 generations or in groups of friends there. The quiet solitude of the house gives absolute privacy in a beautiful environment.

Lovely apartment with stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Germany & Austria and we had a fantastic weeks holiday in this lovely apartment . We were met as arranged , by Nancy , the caretaker who was very friendly and very informative. She gave us all the information we needed regarding the apartment and the surrounding area.

The apartment itself was very clean and tidy and very spacious. The beds were really comfortable and the apartment very warm and cosy which we needed some days !!

The location could not have been better .Overlooked by the Eagles nest which is a must see and a couple of miles from Lake Konigssee which is absolutely stunning ( be sure to do the boat trip ) and only a 25 minute drive from Salzburg , so of course the Sound of Music tour was a must !! The surrounding area of green pastures and a backdrop of ( sometimes ) snowcapped mountains , with lots of Cafes and beer gardens made for a perfect holiday . We couldn't have wished for anything more and would definitely visit again !!

Great location with lots of room

  • 5 of 5

This property is in an ideal location. Berchtesgaden and the Konigsee are minutes away. Bad Reichenall and Herrenchiemsee are about an hour's drive. Hallstatt is a little over an hour away. Salzburg could be a day trip. Hohenwerfen castle is an hour's drive. We rented the upper apartment. The kitchen is good sized and well equipped. The unit was clean with lots of towels and sheets. Beds were comfy. Washer and dryer downstairs. A nice yard with lawn furniture. The balcony you see in the picture faces the mountains, on which you can see the Eagle's Nest. There is a nice restaurant within walking distance- get the number and make a reservation. Comfortable living room. Not for mobility impaired guests. The Zentschs are the young caretaker couple and are very nice and very eager to please and make sure you are happy. The property comes with a Kurkarte which entitles you to a discount on parking and at some attractions in Berchtesgaden. You need to return it when you check out. We could have happily stayed another couple of days.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends, who had stayed with their grown up family and their partners. The house was spacious with 3 double bedrooms, although one was accessed through one of the two bathrooms.

The kitchen was well equipped for self catering.

The area was beautiful and close by were the attractions of Konigsee, Berchesgaten (with its salt mines) and Kehlstein (eagle's nest).

Nancy, the housekeeper was lovely and very helpful.

The house was warm and cosy with plenty of hot water. I would not hesitate recommending the property to anyone.

We had a lovely week in Schonau am Konigssee which was an excellent location for exploring the Obersalzburg area. The house was perfect for our needs, comfortable and well equipped. The views are amazing and there is so much to see and do in the immediate area. we hope to return and continue exploring this region.

Fantastic Christmas 2016, Wonderful Property! Great owner!

  • 5 of 5

My family celebrated Christmas 2016 in this beautiful, clean, and well-appointed traditional German house nestled in the most idyllic setting! We had 8 people, total, so we rented out both of the units and had the full home to ourselves. My parents stayed on the bottom floor, while my family of 6 had plenty of room upstairs. We used the downstairs kitchen and living room the most. The furnishings were very comfy! The fireplace was very nice and warmed the downstairs living area quite nicely. The house had every modern convenience and good wifi. We were able to access the unit very easily when arriving late. We parked right outside the door and found the area to be easy to navigate, with a bakery and grocery store within a short distance. We loved the many restaurants we visited, especially the Echostüberl in Schönau on the Königsee and the Panoramic Restaurant at the Edelweiss Hotel in Berchtesgaden! The Christmas markets in Salzburg and Berchtesgaden were a highlight of our trip! We also enjoyed visiting Herrenchiemsee Palace, Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Saltmine in Hallein, Austria, the spectacular panoramic views of the Rossfeld Ring, and especially a Christmas Eve trip to the Silent Night Chapel in Oberndorf, Austria! Everything we did was within a reasonable distance to travel. Berchtesgaden was very close, and Salzburg was within 25 minutes. The owner made everything easy for us! She stayed in good communication with us and even found a jacket we left and has plans to return it to us! I cannot say enough great things about this property, the surrounding area, or the owner! We had an absolutely wonderful Christmas staying here at Haus Waldklause! A+++++++

This an ideal property from which you can explore this outstanding area of natural beauty.

  • 5 of 5

The house is on two floors, the top floor flat has three bedrooms and was perfect for my family’s needs. Everything was provided for.

I maintain that a holiday is made special by the people you are with but is made so much more perfect by the area you in and place you stay. This short break was perfect, I will be back.

Thank you very much
