Gundelfingen bei Freiburg, Black Forest, Germany

The Friz is located in Freiburg im Breisgau in Baden-Württemberg and offers holiday apartments in a historic building with a green garden.

Today, modern life is possible there in a 200-year-old barn that previously contained only animals, hay and dust. Hostess Melanie inherited the barn from her grandparents and extensively renovated it after she played there as a child between chickens and pigs and learned to love the building. Since March 2017 she has been hosting guests from all over the world with her husband Ron, their daughter Izzy and their cat, all of whom are enthusiastic about the concept.

The barn is more or less an upcycling project, in which modern and spacious apartments were created from the old stock. Despite the contemporary furnishings, you can feel in the barn that it has existed for a long time. In the old walls, for example, there is hardly any mobile phone reception. The Friz BnB is perfect for guests who love architecture, art and design as much as their hosts.

ArchitectureThe barn is 200 years old and the original architecture was preserved during the renovation. The original roof construction and the wooden beams were biologically steamed, sandblasted and reinstalled. The conversion took place exclusively in cooperation with local companies. All apartments are furnished differently, but all built in loft style. The furnishings partly consist of finds from international auction houses and have been put together with a lot of love, according to the hosts' own way of life. Art and seating objects, decorative elements and many books - they are all things that have been collected over many years, including classics by Ray & Charles Eames and Jean Prouvé from the 1930s.

EnvironmentSustainability is taken into account holistically, from energy generation using a combined heat and power plant, waste separation, environmentally friendly cleaning agents, vegan cosmetics in the apartments to organic coffee and tea. Attention is paid to short distances, all employees, including room fairies, live on site. And in the garden there are numerous bee-friendly plants. The bed linen and towels are cleaned in an organic laundry.
