Comfort and Joy
The Crystal Garden – an airy refuge
The Crystal Garden is the heart and soul of our house. Though of course, with its 3.800 m², it is not just a garden. Far more it is the stage for a play, one in which Mother Nature plays a leading role. Welcome to a refuge filled with sensory impressions for the eyes, nose and palate. Be there as a spectator to an interplay of light and shade amid the green of ivy, the gnarled beech tree and the dark satin of fir trees.
Enjoy a special awareness of life, freer and more inspiring: For here in the Crystal Garden, the borders are fluid, or more precisely, non-existent. Our garden transitions seamlessly into a big natural meadow. Awaiting you there are spacious sunbathing oases on different levels, nestled in a fragrant sea of flowers. If you prefer things a little more secluded, our ivy arbor becomes a green, open-air room.
Do you love red currants, raspberries, apples, gooseberries or grapes? Aside from our herb garden, we also have an extended berry and fruit orchard. As you see, this variety is not only a delight for the eyes.
We invite you to pluck your own fruit whenever you please. After all, our garden is also a treat for the taste buds!
The rose was Goethe's favorite flower. In fact, he dedicated many poems to it. This prince of poets would probably have raved over our rose garden. With boundless devotion and care, it is here that your hostess raises her wonderful roses. This garden is affirmation of a special view of life, reflective of a love for all that is beautiful, for colors, fragrances and variety, stimulating the imagination and awakening dormant feelings.
If you find tranquility a source of strength, then our Crystal Mountain Hut awaits you. The wood of this over 250 years old hut breathes centuries of history and is indescribably soothing. A place where it couldn't be easier to leave the hectic hustle and bustle of the daily grind far behind.
In our Crystal log cabin, you will be able to unwind splendidly. Though it is also a good place to hold small celebrations. Perhaps after your win in a game of bocce on our own bocce court. Or perhaps you want nothing more than to enjoy the magic of nature and celebrate the here and now.
In winter, too, our garden plays a central role: The ski slope begins right outside our front door, an ideal practice hill for beginners. And you are certain to be amazed by our life-size nativity scene at the Crystal log cabin, too. This one-of-a-kind piece of hand-carving is being created from hazel-tree branches by Tyrolean artists. And on New Year's Eve, you will get to experience our legendary Glühwein (hot spiced wine) party.
