The space

Wonderful landscape. Time to relax. Enjoy calm woods, watch all kinds of animals nearby or just appreciate the fresh water source which comes just behind the house out of the mountain. All in all the house is just 10 min to downtown Bielefeld, 325.000 inhabitants city with all you could like: art and culture, sports and easy living. Take a walk in the woods, enjoy nature and have fun to share city life with others!

If you travel alone, you ll get a room with one bed. Also for 2 travellers there will be a room with a double bed. All neighbours live at least 200 meters from the house. Just a 10 min walk from the house you ll find a well known pub for Rock and Blues, where you can have a nice evening with good food and drinks. Or you prefer to go to Bielefeld to enjoy all kind of activities downtown. The bus to the city is a 20 min walk away and runs every 20-30 min.

Enjoy calm days near the woods or have a lively day downtown and a rest in the house. Or just go into the garden, take a few hours off, reading, relaxing, BBQ whatever.. If you like walking, hiking, jogging, nature its just a step away!

Markus was a great help. Made me feel very welcome. The house is fantastic, on the brink of a wood, with vieuws. The house was build in 1829! Now with all comfort! Very interesting books in the whole house, including the room for the guests. As it is a 25 minutes (nice) walk to the nearest busstop to Bielefeld, it might be an idea to provide locks to the guests.

Our stay at Markus place was really lovely. The location is gorgeous, a very ancient house in the forest, hidden among trees. The house interiors are very beautiful and cozy. We spent some after dinner time chatting with Markus and his wife on the sofa, with a cup of tea. Very recommended if you are looking for nature, countryside and relaxation.

Markus' house is nestled in the forest, in a quiet, peaceful area. Theirs is a 200 year old, characterful place with lovely fresh spring water. We didn't get a chance to know Markus, but the guests we shared with were very sweet and kind. We enjoyed our weekend working with our horses and then falling into bed!

Markus and Ina treated me like family. Bielefeld was a resting stopover for me and I really did get the rest I needed. My GPS took me right to their front door and It really was an idyllic setting. I fell asleep outside in the sun one day and that felt great. Be sure to try their place.

Markus' house is a beautiful ,well maintained cottage in the country surrounded by forests and farm fields. It is truly wonderful there. It is on a series of trails that wind through the countyside and along the ridges that offer magnificent views of the surrounding country; these trails offer plenty of opportunity for hiking or biking. Markus was a great host ; he acted as a guide for the nearby attractions, he joined us for diner taking us to favourite restaurants and acted as a translator for us when we met with a number of local people who only spoke German. Overall I would rank the experience as very positive and would highly recommend staying at his home to anyone. Don Caldwell

Nachdem wir endlich angekommen waren ( zwecks nicht lesen können der Beschreibung zur Anfahrt) waren wir im Wunderwald. Mitten im nichts ein wunderschönes zur Entspannung einladendes Häuschen . Herrlich. Vielen Dank an Markus und und seine Frau für die nette Unterbringung und den freundlichen Empfang. Wir kommen definitiv wieder auf euch zurück wenn wir in die Gegend kommen. Es war nett euch gefunden zu haben und auch der Plausch mit euch

Op een landelijke plek direct aan de bosrand hebben we gelogeerd bij Markus. De streek is een prachtige wandelomgeving en je bent achter het huis snel op het langeafstandswandelpad Hermannsweg en de Eggeweg (URL HIDDEN)
