A break in the Hainich

Natural, endearing and relaxed. The hainichhöfe chalets are places of real and personal hospitality. The hainichhöfe team loves spoiling people with beautiful things and regional delicacies. At the edge of the Hainich National Park UNESCO World Heritage Site, the six premium chalets invite you to take a break from your everyday life.

On the move in the Rollyboat

Navigate the Hohenwarte Reservoir in a house boat – even without a boating licence! The Rollyboot enables you to explore the almost 30-kilometre long fjord landscape of the Thuringian Sea easily and even self-sufficiently.

“The greatest reward for me is still seeing how stressed many guests are when they arrive and how enthusiastic and relaxed they are when they leave after their holiday,” says Christian Hegenbarth, who hires out the Rollyboot on the Hohenwarte Reservoir. He loves the region around the reservoir, the Thuringian Highlands that invite you to hike, explore and do all kinds of water sports. The Rollyboot aims to provide a slower pace of life and, above all, to encourage mindful behaviour outdoors. A wonderful break is in store for you.
