    Holidays in a monument combined with modern holiday home amenities

    The historical furnishings are harmoniously combined in the historic holiday home with modern holiday requirements such as free Internet access with WLAN and a hand-made sauna.

    The historic tanner's house is heated by a modern, new gas central heating system (installed in December 2019) so that the holiday home with history and modern living comfort welcomes its guests from all over the world.

    You can reach the three floors of the house via a steep staircase. On the total of 111m 2 there are two bedrooms for a maximum of 8 people. There are two single beds in the ground floor bedroom and a double bed in the attic. From there you can reach the open sleeping loft with two additional sleeping spaces with 2 mattresses. There is also a sofa bed in the cozy living area with TV and fireplace. There is a fireplace here where you can spend a cozy evening with a glass of wine by the crackling fire. Right next to it with its open framework, the seating area with corner bench and the well-equipped kitchen invite you to enjoy a delicious dinner. For the children there is a travel cot and a high chair. For the very little guests there is a changing mat and a toilet seat. A selection of books and children's and board games rounds off the offering. For holiday comfort, the two bathrooms are right next to the bedrooms. The ground floor bathroom has a bathtub, a toilet and a sink. The washing machine and dryer are there. The bathroom in the attic has a very large shower (1.4 m x 1 m), a toilet and a wooden vanity unit with a sink.

    In the living room, a fireplace with soapstone provides cozy warmth, as do the historic windows, which were restored in 2015 and provided with insulating glazing.

    Another feature highlight is the hand-made sauna on the terrace and the small romantic garden for unique monument holidays.

    Detailed description

    Would you like to spend your vacation in the monument? the historic holiday home ? Do you enjoy holidays in a monument with the special ambience of holiday homes in historic walls? Then you've come to the right place here in the Black Forest - let your dream of a holiday in this extraordinary holiday apartment become a reality! This is where “back to the roots” becomes reality.

    Monument holidays in the “Gerberhäusle” – Black Forest history for living

    The unusual holiday apartment is a half-timbered house from 1783 and is quietly located in Alpirsbach's old town on the gently babbling Kinzig river.

    It is under special monument protection and has been lovingly and painstakingly restored by hand in recent years. Natural building materials were used to preserve the building structure. All floors in the rooms are made of wooden planks or natural stone. Together with the wood-clad walls, the visible half-timbering and the coffered ceiling in the living room, the particularly homely atmosphere of the monument is created. Almost all of the furniture in the holiday apartment is handmade and unique.

    “Every time I enter the tanner’s house I feel like I’ve been transported back to a different, historical time. Back to the time of the rustic Black Forest stories and traditions surrounding rafting and tanning. This is one of those extraordinary accommodations where this is something you can feel and live in as a guest.” If you like the Gerberhaus, it’s worth taking a look at the Titisee holiday apartment .

    Enjoy our new 360° tour through the luxurious holiday apartments in the Black Forest!

    Wellness in the historic walls of the tanner's house

    After an eventful day in the Black Forest, take a few sauna sessions in your private outdoor sauna, then eat in one of the excellent Alpirsbach restaurants within walking distance and enjoy the crackling fire in the historic walls of the “Gerberhäusle” with a glass of wine. Or you can take a full bath in your holiday home bathtub.

    In summer you can enjoy the quiet babbling of the Kinzig and the chirping of birds on your terrace.

    There are numerous thermal baths in our region in the south of Germany. In the Alpirsbach area there is the Panoramabad in Freudenstadt, a swimming pool with a sauna area and wellness spa. Or you can visit the thermal baths in Baden-Baden and Bad Wildbad.

    Looking back at our short vacation in the Gerberhaus in Alpirsbach

    Rated 5 out of 5

    From the outside, the tanner's house looks very authentic.
    From the inside it is absolutely clean and well-kept.
    Keeping these rustic walls clean so carefully is a great art...everything was really perfect!!! As we enter, we are greeted by a pleasant warmth, enough space for shoes, a view of the creatively and practically furnished bathroom with a large whirlpool bathtub, immediately to the left the large and spacious bedroom... and the view of the beautiful, natural garden with terrace.
    We discover the sauna outside, a wonderful place to warm up and relax. The steep stairs are easy to walk, step by step.
    Once at the top, the comfortably furnished kitchen invites you to prepare and cook.
    All the necessary electrical appliances are available and we didn't miss the dishwasher. We continue into the dining area with enough comfortable space at the large table and a storage room.
    The spacious living area adjoins and the stove is a special fixture that spreads wonderful warmth. You may have to turn the heating down a little, otherwise it will get too warm. In the attic there is a very large bedroom with an integrated glass shower room, a very successful composition!
    There are additional sleeping spaces up the stairs, but we didn't use them...
    So, we were extremely satisfied with everything all around and wish all other guests an equally successful time as we had.
