Aschau im Chiemgau, Bavaria, Germany

The guest house in Aschau im Chiemgau “wants” little. Don't want to prove anything, achieve anything, just be there. It does not curse itself, but makes itself available. To get in. Come to rest. Come to yourself.

That goes well here in this more than 350 year old, traditional building, furnished with modern designer furniture by Nils Holger Moormann and surrounded by unspoilt nature right at the foot of the majestic Kampenwand in Chiemgau. There is no television in the house, but a selection of books in each apartment. True to the motto of concentrating on the essentials, you can cook as you wish in berge. In 14 of the 16 berge quarters, self-sufficiency in well-equipped designer kitchens applies. There is no restaurant in berge, the “large parlor” with space to eat for up to 25 people and a kitchen with 6 cooking rings can be rented for joint cooking events or courses. Those who want to celebrate here can, for example, hire an external cook or organize catering. If you want, you can have the ingredients for breakfast put in front of your door in the morning and then prepare it yourself with love in pajamas.

For shopping, there is an abundance of regional and organic markets in the area or direct sales outlets at local farmers, dairymen and fishermen. And for eating out, there is also everything the palate could desire. And in front of the house you practically fall directly into the gondola, which whisks you off into the vast blue heights of 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, sun loungers and boule balls in the cottage garden right next to the house - so less, but somehow also - more.

By the way, we also featured this accommodation in Five places off the slopes.

ArchitectureThe renovation and reconstruction of the 350-year-old building took about three years. With a lot of creative energy, balustrades, metal stairs, bunk beds and shelves were fitted into the smaller and larger quarters that have now been developed. It is clear that designers were at work, because each room is individually designed and furnished. Where possible, old parts of the wall, original wooden beams and floorboards are a reminder of the house's venerability, which is reinforced by the contrast with the modern and reduced Moormann design. It all looks like it was really fun to make the berge what it is now. It is not for nothing that it has been awarded numerous design prizes since it opened in 2009.

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