Treehouse summary

The location of Birkenhaus is pretty isolated and you will have to travel winding roads up a mountain to reach it. But the trip is very well worth it for you wont find a place more relaxing than this one. Made from entirely natural materials by the owner, Peter , this sturdy treehouse has a bright and airy living area with a cherry dining table, comfy beds, and wide windows. In here, guests can hang out while enjoying the wonderful scenery, indulge in great food and drinks, take in the beauty of nature, and get some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Most definitely, this cabin wasnt only built to be a simple getaway but a place where anyone can stay comfortably for as long as their heart desires.

Treehouse description

Though quite simple, Birkenhaus really doesnt compromise on safety and comfort. The cabin has all the necessary amenities needed for a hassle-free stay such as electricity, a heater, and four very cozy beds. Also, it has a water closet in a separate booth outside of it that has a dry toilet and a wash basin. On the other hand, the showers can be found in the castle. But still, it is available all day long and is only about a hundred meters away.

With regards to dining in at the Birkenhaus, there's a dining hall out on the grounds that provides a mouth-watering breakfast buffet made from all the freshest local products and which can be eaten there or in the treehouse itself. Also, there is a Waldbar where lunch or dinner can be ordered upon request, as well as delicious breads and pastries, coffee and tea, and organic lemonades, beer, and wine.

How to get there

From Witzenhausen, head northwest on Hinter den Teichhöfen and then take the L3238 to Berlepsche. From there, take the slight right onto Mündener Street and turn right again onto An der Linde. After so, take the left turn to Hübenthaler Street and continue on the L3238 and when you see a right turn, take it. Follow this road until you reach a fork in the road. Keep right and then make another right towards Berlepsch. Once there, Birkenhaus will be on the left.

About the area

Though the Birkenhaus is pretty far from civilization, it is in the vicinity of great tourist and scenic spots that offers a number of activities. So if you’re planning to stay here, you will never run out of things to do. For starters, you can visit the Berlepsch Castle which is one of the most beautiful castles in Hesse, Germany. In here, you can check out the 1000-year old ruins and the museum, as well as the restaurant that is home to many fine delicacies and drinks. Also, you can go horseback riding through the forest with your family and friends. The horses and ponies are all well-trained so you’ll never have a problem with safety even if you’re a first-timer. In addition, you can hike through the various trails in the area – all of which lead to countless lookout points and attractions such as castles and mountain parks. But if you’re more of the laidback kind of person, you can simply stay at the Waldbar near the treehouse and camp around a bonfire while enjoying scrumptious meals or freshly-made bread and great beer. Here at the Birkenhaus, there’s a suitable activity for you no matter which age bracket you belong to.

    Amazing experience

    An amazing experience, staying in the middle of the forrest in a comfortable Tipi with a fire place. Went to see Documenta at Kassel and stayed for two nights, really enjoyed it. It is about 30 min drive from Kassel which was not a problem at all, even found stunning country houses and absolutely beautiful small villages on the way. Thank you so much.

    Veru Beautiful Show original

    The accommodation was beautiful (and almost bigger than the pictures) and super comfortable (also thanks to the nice little warm), we would always come back! Everything was perfect! The only unclean was that we had to check out at 12h (check-in and check-out was possible at any time), which was told to us just before 12 and so the departure after 2 superentpannt days then unfortunately a bit hectic. Peter, we unfortunately did not know. Still THANK YOU and see you soon! :)
