Four modern holiday rentals on a historic Black Forest farm next to the forest. - Haus Wussler, Apt. 'Garden Terrace'



Updated: 20-Oct-2016

'Haus Wussler', the modern guesthouse of our traditional Black Forest farm with 3 holiday rentals of different sizes and prices, was built in 1992. The typical Black Forest holiday farmhouse 'Valley View' of 1839 was restored and renovated in 2010.

Both are located on a sunny plateau, next to the forest, surrounded by meadows and garden areas, with a splendid panoramic view of the Kinzig Valley / Central Black Forest.

Relax in the comfortable, modern holiday apartments of 'Haus Wussler' with balcony or terrace/garden area or in the historic, restored holiday farmhouse 'Valley View' of 1839.

Four accommodations of different sizes from 33 sqm for 1 - 3 persons / 1 bedroom, 55 sqm for max. 4 persons, 60 sqm for max. 5 persons up to 120 sqm for max. 6 persons / 3 bedrooms are available.

All holiday rentals have fully equipped kitchens, living rooms, satellite TV and -radio with flat screen and many international channels (2 satellites 'Astra' and 'Hotbird'), WIFI is possible, max. 3 separate bedrooms and partly additional places to sleep in the living room, for instance sofabeds or wall-/Murphy beds, bathroom with shower cabin and bathtub, WC or shower cabin / WC, balcony or terrace / front garden.

Enjoy the garden areas with a barbecue site and playgrounds as well as the large sun-terrace of the guesthouse with a splendid panoramic view.

'Haus Wussler' is family and children-friendly. Seniors, singles and couples will also feel comfortable and will spend a pleasant and relaxing vacation at our place.

The children love the farm-animals and the playground with swings, slide, a playhouse and sandbox as well as the large meadows with soccer goals, badminton and table-tennis.

The adults like the quiet and picturesque location, the unique panoramic view and the beautiful nature as well as our home-made products, e.g. an original Black Forest 'Kirschwasser' or 'Obstler' schnaps from our distillery.

Enjoy nice walks (also with your dog), hiking, Nordic walking, mountain-biking etc. in the forest next to our property and cycling in very beautiful surroundings.

Dogs are welcome, after prior information. They will also spend a pleasant and comfortable vacation at 'Haus Wussler'.

Smoking is allowed outside and on balconies/terraces.

Gengenbach (3 km) is a picturesque medieval town with a historic town-centre, idyllic narrow streets, half-timbered houses, museums, facilities for wellness, sports and recreation, spas, swimming-pools, shops and supermarkets, pubs, inns, restaurants, wine-taverns and cafés.

Haus Wussler

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in the Swallows Nest apartment last summer. Haus Wussler is a beautiful, clean, quiet Black Forest farm house perfectly located for excursions through the Schwarzwald and Rhein Valley. Barbara is a gracious and caring hostess with a wealth of knowledge of the local area. We would certainly stay there again.

A Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our heartfelt thanks to Barbara for a lovely introduction to Germany! Haus Wussler offered a beautiful, clean and spacious base for our first week of holidays. The location is simply perfect for touring around the Black Forest-Gengenbach is truly magical! Barbara was always available to answer any questions we had about the area or things to do, places to shop, etc. We would love to return one day as there is just so much to see and do!

Panorama Apartment - Our Second Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Haus Wussler and it now feels like our second home! Barbara and Erwin are so welcoming and will do anything possible to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We stayed in the Panorama Apartment this time and the balcony views are stunning and the vista changes all the time. We had our two Labradors with us as they are most welcome at Haus Wussler and spent many happy hours unwinding, relaxing and exploring the area once again during our two week stay. The standards at Haus Wussler are first class, all the apartments are well equipped and the newly converted old barn is just stunning. We wish that we were still there now and won't hesitate to return once again as we have found a gem of a place both in the warmth of the owners and the accommodation and area itself.

This is the only place I would stay in the Black Forest

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's holiday at this lovely property. Barbara and Erwin made us feel like family and the apartment was perfect. We felt like we were part of the Gengenbach community, returning to our comfortable quiet apartment each night. Each morning we were awoken to the voluminous sounds of Black Forest bird songs. Barbara pointed us to a great cuckou clock shop so we could take a small piece of those beautiful songs home with us.

The location is perfect for day trips all over the Black Forest, Basel Switzerland and southern France. Don't forget to stop for your daily batch of fresh baked bretzels!

You will not find a better rental in this area and I highly recommend this property to everyone!

Thanks for everything Barbara and Erwin. I hope you have a healthly pleasant summer.
