Altes Schleusenwärterhaus

Neukirchen, Nordfriesland, Germany

Good Morning! So you are welcomed here in Neukirchen, a small community in the district of North Friesland in northwest Schleswig-Holstein at any time of the day or night. On the outskirts, on top of an old dike, stands the former lock keeper's house.

In the old lock keeper's house, with the thatched roof typical of the area, there are two very exclusive, stylish holiday apartments for up to six people each. The spacious and tastefully furnished living areas radiate a pleasant feel-good atmosphere. In cold weather, the fireplace ensures cozy afternoons in the house.

There is a separate sauna house next to the house, which promises wonderful sauna experiences followed by relaxation in the large berths. From there, guests can let their gaze wander over the fields and meadows and the adjacent reed ponds.

The luxurious holiday apartments in quiet surroundings are the ideal starting point for numerous activities, such as a visit to the island of Sylt, long walks on the beach in Römö in Denmark, mudflat hikes, boat tours to the North Frisian Islands and Halligen or bike tours along the dikes. In summer it is worth jumping into the beautifully situated bathing lake "Hülloft Tief".

Nature enthusiasts will definitely get their money's worth: the landscape conservation area "Gotteskoogsee" begins right on the doorstep of the house and in the bird sanctuary Rickelsbüller Koog, especially during the "travel times" of the birds, you can observe all sorts of rare animals. A special spectacle is the "black sun", as the phenomenon is called, when hundreds of starlings gather in the evening at Rudebüller See in autumn.

There is also a lot to see for art lovers in the area. Those who have not yet had enough of the beautiful Nordic sky can check out in the Noldemuseum how the painter Emil Nolde has just brilliantly immortalized this sky in his pictures.

ArchitectureThe origins of the old lock keeper's house go back to the 16th century. Between 2014 and 2016, the operators, together with local craftsmen, renovated the building from the ground up using natural building materials in terms of building physics and ecology and restored it in the typical North Frisian style. Green elements are the locally typical thatched roof, cellulose and wood fiber insulation, clay plaster, wall and floor heating, natural stone tiles, wooden floors and the use of natural paints and varnishes. Original ceilings were preserved, the room doors were made in the style of the old clamp doors. The employed craftsmen all came from the region and regional materials such as thatched reed, bricks and Sehestedter natural colors were processed as far as possible. The garden was laid out in such a way that the naturalness of the old dike was preserved. The terraces and paths have not been sealed, the garden furniture is made of natural wood and is untreated. The interior consists of a combination of stylish and comfortable country house furniture; original etchings and woodcuts by local artists serve as decor.

The operators support the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Wadden Sea National Park".

EnvironmentThe house is supplied with green electricity and green gas from regional suppliers. When purchasing the electrical devices, emphasis was placed on a high efficiency class. The garbage is separated, guests are pointed out in the house book
