Aschau im Chiemgau, Bavaria, Germany

The guesthouse "Berge" in Aschau im Chiemgau “doesn't want” much. Doesn't want to prove anything, doesn't want to achieve anything, just be there. It doesn't pander to itself, but makes itself available. To come in. Come to rest. Come to yourself.

This goes well here in this more than 350-year-old, traditional building, furnished with modern design furniture from Moormann Design and surrounded by unspoilt nature directly at the foot of the majestic Kampenwand in Chiemgau. In the house there are no televisions, but there is a selection of books in every apartment.

You can cook in almost all quarters yourself. For fine regional and original food, there are various shopping opportunities in Chiemgau - just across the border to the Senner, comfortably on the Priener organic market or to the farm shop in the next village. Also highly recommended: freshly smoked Chiemsee fish.

And in front of the house you practically fall directly into the gondola, which takes you to the far blue height on the Kampenwand. Opposite is Hohenaschau Castle and not far from the beautiful Chiemsee with its islands and castles and bathing water. But if you want less, you will find peaceful greenery, deckchairs, boules balls and a small Finnish sauna in the farm garden right next to the house - less, but somehow actually more.

ArchitectureThe renovation and renovation of the over 350-year-old building took around three years. With a lot of creative energy, balustrades, metal stairs, bunk beds and shelves were fitted into the now larger and smaller quarters. The fact that designers were at work is clearly recognizable, because each room is individually designed and furnished. Where possible, old wall parts, original wooden beams and floorboards remind of the time-honored character of the house, which is enhanced by the contrast with the modern and reduced Moormann design. Everything looks like it was really fun to make the mountains what it is now. It's not for nothing that it has won numerous design awards since it opened in 2009.

FoodThere is no restaurant in the mountains, but there is a "large room" with space for dining for up to 35 people and a kitchen with 6 cooking areas for joint cooking events or courses. If you want to celebrate here, you can, for example, hire an external cook or organize catering. The mountains cooperate with providers of regional, organic and star cuisine. Otherwise, self-sufficiency applies in 14 of the 16 mountain districts in well-equipped designer kitchens. If you want, you can have the ingredients for breakfast in front of the door in the morning and then cook them yourself in love with your pajamas. For shopping, there is an abundance of regional and organic markets in the area or direct sales points from farmers, dairies or fishermen nearby. And for eating out there is also everything the palate could desire.

EnvironmentThe well-insulated house made of natural materials is heated with heat from a geothermal heat pump and uses green electricity.

Well-BeingIn the green oasis of the cottage garden there is a small house with a small Finnish sauna. If you are there at the right time of the year, you can rub in fresh powder snow between sauna sessions.
