Our loft "Himmelstor" in the lovingly extended roof chair of our ancient mountain farm is truly heavenly. Endless light, air and plenty of space to breathe freely. Distance view from the two huge panoramic windows, light from 11 other large and smaller windows, 105 sqm living space and 5 m room height. Deep calm, clear starry nights without extraneous light. For those seeking relaxation and tranquility, athletically ambitious and anyone who wants to experience the elegance of Allgäu on the mountain.

The space
The Lacherhof, an ancient mountain farm, is quietly located at the end of the access road, at 1050m in the Allgäu Alps. The attic of the courtyard has been lovingly restored and many very large windows inserted, creating a huge, very high and illuminated room with great views of the mountains and nature. The living room (80sqm) with large artisanal solid wood kitchen offers space without end, but unfortunately no second bedroom could be separated without destroying the loft in its generosity. For groups with more than two people, guests must sleep either on the comfortable sofa bed or on the pointed floor (2 single beds).

Where you’ll be

Rettenberg, Bavaria, Germany

Why don't you leave your car? In the apartment you find lots of hiking suggestions from me with maps. Directly from the house there are numerous walking trails on the elongated back of the Rottachberg. There you will find romantic, varied trails between meadows, rocks, steep mountain forest and a wonderful flora. The rocky Falkenstein with a great view and a summit cross can be reached in just 20 minutes from the house. There is also the most demanding and famous climbing area in the Allgäu.
In the summer you can stop at two Alps with an excursion, in the winter you can make great snowshoe tours. From the house you can see a varied ski area with long descents on the green lifts located on the opposite slope, which can be reached in 4km. More ecological is the family and inexpensive "natural snow paradise" at the Adelharz and Breitenstein lifts, about 5km away, also visible from the house.
In summer, the large Rottachsee (5km long) can be reached in 10 minutes by car. There are three long bathing beaches, mostly few people and heavenly tranquility, as no large road runs along.
In summer as well as in winter, the wild Gerats waterfalls (1.5h on foot, 10 min by car) are worth visiting.

During your stay

I live in the house and am mostly approachable in case of questions and problems. Even if it gets later when you arrive, that's not a problem. I am happy to give tips for excursions from the house or nearby. In winter we rent high quality snowshoes for €8/day.
