Robins Nest

Witzenhausen, Hesse, Germany

Shortly after Witzenhausen there is a small oasis in the forest in the border triangle of Hesse, Lower Saxony and Thuringia. In the treetops of a beautiful beech forest, adventure seekers and nature lovers can spend a great, decelerated time in the tree house hotel Robins Nest. The extraordinary “Hotel” was opened in summer 2014. Founder Peter Becker enables his guests to see and explore the forest with completely new eyes in this place of wellbeing; the stay is a great mix of adventure, relaxation and nature experience.

Robins Nest is basically a small self-sufficient village with three tree houses, a stilt tree house, a tree house ball, a log cabin and another five tree tents. Each of the accommodations is an absolute eye-catcher in its own way. The stilt house in the style of a chalet with large panoramic windows offers a sensational view of the forest and the nearby, almost fairytale-like Berlepsch Castle. The tree houses, however, are rather cozy. The tree nest can be reached via stairs and suspension bridges at a height of around seven meters. So you should be free from giddiness. The sauna trolley provides an extraordinary wellness experience in the green. There is also the possibility to book special picnic baskets for excursions.

As cozy as the tree houses are, there is a lot to experience in the area. Outdoor fans will get their money's worth here. Around the whole area there are idyllic circular hiking trails, including the Werra Burgensteig, which leads to numerous castles and viewpoints along the Werra river. Robins Nest is also located directly on the X5H long-distance hiking trail. Under no circumstances should visitors miss the nearby Berlepsch Castle, where the Middle Ages are palpable. Children will love it. Guided tours such as mushroom and herbalism as well as night hikes are often offered. The quarry in Gertenbach and the Meißner nature park are also worth a visit, you can swim in the green lake Hundelshausen. A trip to Kassel is ideal for a classic city trip.

ArchitectureEach tree house is designed according to its own motto and has been individually built with natural materials. The atmosphere is (logically) determined by a lot of wood - all furniture comes from our own workshop. The decor is rustic and minimal. There is just as much of everything available as you need for a relaxing holiday. When choosing the equipment, emphasis was placed on sustainable material from the region and solid workmanship.

FoodIn the morning from 8.30 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. a vegetarian breakfast buffet with selected seasonal products is served in the Waldbar restaurant. Many of the products used are organic and come from small farms in the region.

EnvironmentThe wood used for the tree houses comes from the Berlepscher forest. Only ecological building and insulation materials were used for the construction. The craftsmen, carpenters and planners mostly live in the region. The plant is supplied from regenerative electricity by wind turbines from the Berlepscher Land. It is planned to create a permaculture garden shortly and grow vegetables for the forest restaurant there.
