Hello to all, We had great time there, beautiful nature and silent place. You have to get up at 6:00 o'clock for watching wonderful River, which is just ten steps far from this place. Cheers from Berlin Pinar and Gabor

Great location! Great atmosphere! You want to spleep in a very special place? Here you have it… provided you are an adventurous person and do not shy away from pre-modern comfort (no shower, no water closet). There is a well-equipped kitchen for simple meals and a sink so you can wash yourself with warm water though. People with dust allergy should avoid this place.

I had a wonderful time in and around the church- hiking, bathing in the river (also was my shower) and enjoying the quietness around this secluded spot. The church is amazing and I slept like a baby.

A one of a kind experience! Extraordinary! Had a wonderful time. Juliane has thought of everything you could ever need. Make sure to bring lots of food and warm socks. My one qualm is that it was pretty difficult to get to as there is one bus that goes to the village and even that isn't all the time! Ended up hitchhiking to get there which was also part of the adventure. Wouldn't attempt without a car but would definitely recommend and visit again!

Actually I'm from Berlin, but during work in Vienna, I spend time with filmprojects. I love spent freetime in Briest on summer weekends and pursue my work as artist.
My biggest vice is my coffee in the morning. Without I'm not fully functional!
So, coffee and milk are always available :)
What else I do like? Just ask! I will gladly answer all your questions.
