The real nomadic feeling and wild camping naturally includes as close a separation as possible with the surrounding nature without a fence and soil sealing. If you want that and still like it to be comfortable, there are holidays at the Kunterbunthof.
For example in the blue yurt in the middle of the sheep pasture in the courtyard. You can hear the bleating and puffing of the sheep and at night you can see up through the glass dome into the sky. Apart from that, there is also the red yurt standing on a lush meadow at the foot of the largest slingshot in Northern Europe - also with a glass eye. There is also a mini wooden house and a holiday apartment in the house.
After 20 years of traveling the world when their son was born, Andre and Jenni fulfilled their wish for their own nest with the farm. They have lived here since 2014 and are expanding the old courtyard not far from the Baltic Sea into a place of encounter and culture. There are various accommodations for guests, a large old barn for cultural and other events and a large, colorful garden with a campfire and barbecue areas.
The still urgent wanderlust is alleviated from this base station through months of bike tours and lecture tours all over Germany "and the world is now visiting the Kunterbunthof. It's like traveling the other way around," says Schumacher.
By the way, we also featured this accommodation on our blog at Five family-friendly places.
ArchitectureDemolishing and building new ones would have been easier, but nest building should also be an experience for real adventurers. With the help of crowdfunding, brains and muscles, the old courtyard buildings were carefully freed from rotten beams by many friends, acquaintances and guests and rebuilt with new materials that were as true to the original as possible. There is a "witch's house" under the walnut tree. And there is a red and a blue yurt, which consist exclusively of wood, linen, canvas and Breton sheep's wool as insulation and hold together without a single nail.
FoodThe guest accommodations on the Kunterbunthof are principally geared towards self-sufficiency. There are kitchens in the accommodations and an outdoor kitchen for the witch house in the garden. A collaboration with a top Spanish chef is planned from summer 2020, who will provide breakfast in the morning and changing multi-course menus in the evening. And of course you can drink the finest wines from Jenni's native Spain on this farm.
In summer 2020 the travel and lecture festival "Bäbelon" will take place at the Kunterbunthof. There is live music, lectures, interviews and readings on the topics of travel, reportage and good life.
EnvironmentThe Kunterbunthof is to be gradually expanded to a reasonable ecological balance. The small accommodations are currently heated with wood-burning stoves and wood from their own forest. In the course of the next time, some will switch to solar. Andre Schuhmacher has been traveling around the world as a writer and photographer for 20 years, backpacking and cycling. He brings the experience of this slow and mindful being on the road into the courtyard and gives lectures every year in Germany in front of over 10,000 people. The Kunterbunthof has readings and lectures by him and other inspiring personalities.
Well-BeingSometimes friends, who André and Jenni met while traveling around the world, come to the Kunterbunthof and stay for a shorter or longer period. These include massage therapists and other therapeutically experienced people. If someone is there, there is often a range of wellbeing treatments for the guests who are also here. If there is no such person, nature is there, the trees, the pure air, and long ways to take a healthy walk, for example ...
