Built in 1848 in the style of a stately townhouse, the Alte Apotheke (Old Pharmacy) operated as a pharmacy for several generations and still holds a special place in the region. The romantic-era building retains many historical features and is set in a terraced garden with a 19th-century apiary, a picturesque inner courtyard and an old coach house.

In 2014 this historical jewel was decorated by the Oehler family, who refurbished it in the manner of a stylish English bed & breakfast that preserved its spacious, traditional atmosphere while introducing elements of modern and fresh design.

Studios in the Häusle

In 2018, the Alte Apotheke received an attractive extension with the modern renovation of two studio apartments in the neighboring “Häusle”. A garden path leads from the Alte Apotheke to the former carpenter’s house, with its old workshop, stable and barn.

Each air-conditioned studio – featuring exposed beams, high ceilings and beautifully restored wooden floors – has a high-quality kitchenette, stylish living space and sleeping area, and is perfect for longer stays.

In summer, guests can relax in comfortable sitting areas in the courtyard and garden.
