About the property

tiled stove and four poster beds

Lovingly restored, former craftsman's workshop in a small village with approx. 1000 inhabitants in the natural park area of Erzgebirge/Vogtland with countless cycle and hiking paths in wooded hilly area. You will be staying in a detached holiday home which is adjacent to our house, in a former joiners workshop with exhibition room, a miniature village and a small gallery in the former barn area. In front of the holiday home you will find a larger garden and behind the house you will find more parking spaces. On the ground floor of the holiday home there is a sitting room with a kitchen and television as well as a toilet with shower and separate toilet. On the first floor you will find two bedrooms with double beds and one bedroom with two single beds. All rooms have central heating. In the winter months the wood stove is the central point for comfortable times. The Vogtland offers many interesting day trip destinations all the year round for a varied and interesting family holiday.

Historical joiner's workshop: The former joiner's workshop contains machines from a bygone age. These machines and the joiners tools make up the framework for small events. Now and then readings or presentations take place here. In the past year a couple of computer courses took place here. In the coming Christmas period we will hold some Christmas parties for kids here. And if you wish we will think up something for you.

Gallery: Ten years ago straw and hay were still being stored here, there was a hay cart on the barn floor and a threshing machine stood in the corner. With much effort and vision we created a relaxation room out of this former barn with a fireplace and many small extras. At the moment there are some oil paintings hanging there, on loan from Professor Johannes Helm.

Miniature village: In the summer months we exhibit the carefully restored life’s work of the rural folk artist Karl Singer. A village, carved from wooded with small figures created a picture of what life was like in the village in 1900. Karl Singer worked many years on this village. Nowadays visitors from the region and tourists alike can see this exhibition and be entertained and tell stories. Every year many hundred guests observe the model village, traditional societies, hiking groups and kindergarten groups.

Bergen is the gateway to the upper Vogtland and Erzgebirge. This is one of the most beautiful mountainous regions in Germany. There is a good tram network, bicycle and walking trails connect idyllic villages and towns between valleys and forests. There are many day trip locations such as sporting centers, theme parks, theaters, museums, mines, water parks, the spa areas of Bad Elster and Bad Brambach, the musical corner near Markneukirchen, the ski jump in Klingerthal, the border crossing to Baederdreieck in the Czech Republic and Prague. Dresden and Leipzig are approx. 2 hours away by car. The whole region is very well connected by public transport, you can reach most destinations comfortably and cheaply by train or by bus. The Vogtland was named as the most interesting hiking area in Germany in a survey in 2005. There is a multitude of hiking trails, and cross country skiing trails in winter that run through the Vogtland.

Golf: The nearest golf course is 3.6 miles away near the Poehl dam. There is another 18 miles away near the town of Hof.

Ski: The Vogtland has become a well loved ski area in the past few years. It is not the ski slopes that tempt winter sport enthusiasts to our area however, rather the winding network of cross country ski trails in the area and the tradition of ski jumps. Since 2006, one of the most modern ski jumps in the world is located in Klingenthal, a new highlight in the Vogtland area.

Perfekter Kurzurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir (5 Erwachsene) haben einen wunderschönen Kurzurlaub über Pfingsten verbracht. Haus und Umgebung mitten in wunderschöner Natur. Das Fachwerkhaus bietet genug Platz in den Schlafzimmern und bei schlechtem Wetter in der gemütlichen Wohnküche mit Kachelofen, der jeder Zeit beheitzt werden kann. Das fanden wir sehr angenehm. Alles tip top sauber, sogar die Querbalken ohne Staub.Der Garten lädt zum Entspannen ein. Der Bäcker im Ort (Richtung Plauen) backt super Brötchen und Kuchen. Die Vermieter haben uns sehr nett empfangen und Hinweise zu Ausflügen und Wanderungen gegeben. Wir waren das 2. Mal hier und kommen mit Sicherheit wieder!

Traumhafter Kurzurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir (3 junge Pärchen + Kleinkind) haben einen wunderschönen Silvesterurlaub verbracht. Das Haus und die Gegend sind sehr idyllisch, mitten in wunderschöner Natur, die Schlafzimmer und die große Wohnküche urgemütlich, die Ausstattung gut und alles sauber, der Garten mit herrlicher Sonnenterrasse und Blick auf die Kirche lädt zum Entspannen (und Rumtoben für die Kinder;) ) ein. Die Vermieter haben uns sehr nett empfangen, es blieben keine Wünsche offen. Gerne wieder! :)

Perfekter Winterurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir, zwei Familien mit je zwei Kindern, haben eine wundervolle Woche in Bergen verbracht. Die Unterkunft ist ausgesprochen gemütlich und lädt zum Verweilen ein. Besonders der Kachelofen hat es uns angetan. Wir konnten Skifahren, Rodeln und eine Pferdeschlittentour machen.

Vielen Dank den äußerst sympathischen Gastgebern!

Gemütlichkeit pur

  • 3 of 5

Wir (Familie mit 2 Kindern - 6 und 8 Jahre) haben uns sehr wohl befühlt, besonders der schöne Kachelofen in der Wohnküche hat für Gemütlichkeit gesorgt. Im Haus war alles vorhanden, was benötigt und erwartet wird. Die Region ist leider etwas unterschätzt, man kann durchaus gut & preiswert essen und es gibt genügend Freizeitangebote. Vor allem haben wir die Begegnungen mit den Einheimischen als sehr angenehm empfunden.

Eines der schönsten Ferienaufenthalte für uns.....

  • 5 of 5

wir, zwei Freundinnen, waren mit drei Jugendlichen und einem Kind schon im vorigen in diesem wunderschönen Ferienhaus zu Gast. Weil es uns super gefallen hatte, mussten wir auch in diesem Jahr hierher kommen.

Ein sehr schönes gepflegtes Haus, sehr gut eingerichtet. Es fehlte an nichts. Das große Grundstück ist liebevoll gestaltet, auch für Kinder ideal. - Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich - wir fühlten uns dort alle sofort aufgenommen. Nach Möglichkeit kommen wir alle wieder und Freunden und Bekannten haben wir es schon längste empfohlen.

Die Umgebung bietet sehr schöne Attraktionen: Freibad, Freizeitpark, Wanderziele und sehr gute Gaststätten. Die Vermieter haben sehr viele Informationen ausgelegt, so dass es jeden Tag etwas anderes zu erleben gab.
