Holiday flats in the wooden hotel

The family hotel Weimar is located right next to the renowned Goethe residence in one of the most beautiful streets in town. Our small ecological house was built of wood and clay and fits harmoniously into the historical cityscape.
The holiday flats, furnished with attention to detail, as well as a restaurant with sophisticated modern cuisine are the setting for a relaxing holiday in a unique old town location. We put emphasis on style and sustainability. Our “wooden house” combines modern architecture and ecological construction. High-quality building materials with largely natural surfaces were used throughout the hotel. Clay plaster and wall heating ensure a healthy indoor climate. Oiled larch wood floorboards and solid wooden furniture create a special feel-good atmosphere.
We received the Thuringian Timber Construction Prize and the Thuringian Tourism Prize in 2013 for ​​building ecologically sustainable while including an innovative concept in the midst of the classic UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • Ecological living in a wooden house: outer walls made of 34 cm thick solid timber, which were manufactured without glue or other construction chemistry products
  • No air conditioning for ventilation, instead only a weak flow of exhaust air via the bathroom and supply air via small window slots
  • Energy production from a gas cogeneration plant in the cellar
  • Floors: oiled larch wood floorboards
  • Walls: coloured loam plaster with wall heating
  • Solid wood furniture from a carpenter
  • Planning and construction of the hotel by architects, designers and craftsmen from the region
  • Processing seasonal, regional, mostly organic food in the hotel restaurant
