Update 18th of January 2021

Dear guests!

Unfortunately yesterday our government has decided to keep all hotels and restaurants closed until at least the end of February. Therefore we are forced to cancel all bookings in this time. Guests with a booking will be contacted directly of course.

For the time after this lock down, we are evaluating if we can open again. This decision is mainly affected by three factors:

1.) Are we able to provide our usual service regarding our employees and their plans for the next months?

2.) Do the travel restrictions from other countrys allow us to operate profitable?

3.) How likely will it be for us to really be allowed to open in the end of February / beginning of March.

Of course you will be updated regularly.

Until then we wish you all the best and stay safe!
