When the concrete jungle starts feeling a tad too grey, and your to-do list starts getting a little too long, it’s high time you treated yourself to time away from the city. And this is precisely the experience that Raus’s founding trio — Christopher Eilers, Johann Ahlers and Julian Trautwein — offers self-sufficient cabins in a remote location in nature. Thanks to the design and architecture-savvy team, guests enjoy sustainable retreats that embrace contemporary living. The coordinates for the location are only revealed after a booking has been completed.

Raus’s minimalist tiny houses are equipped with all the essentials for a comfortable weekend in the countryside. You can even book a package deal, including a car-sharing service and a refrigerator stocked with regional products. It’s easy to switch off electrical devices and switch on relaxation mode here. As you sip your first coffee of the day, let the views from the bedroom enchant you. A hearty breakfast and tours of the surrounding area await. Upon returning to your capsule house in the evening, a wood-burning stove and curated selection of books welcome you home.

Tucked away in the Bavarian Forest, Wild-Berghof Buchet has been in the hands of the Gstettenbauer family for generations. Today, the family not only proudly owns this inn and accompanying miniature mobile home but also a nearby deer park. The main manor on the property features modern rooms with rustic furnishings. While Hyt, the so-called tiny onsite cabin, welcomes guests to spend the night in the middle of nature. This moveable wooden hut is transported to the desired location by tractor before check-in, meaning you can choose between staying close to the main house, surrounded by meadows or at the edge of the forest.

In 2018, Wild-Berghof Buchet’s tiny house won the prestigious German Design Award. It offers the highest level of comfort in the smallest of spaces — even though its total living area amounts to just 15 square meters, it features a kitchen and can sleep up to five guests. If you don’t want to cook for yourself, we recommend letting the Gstettenbauers spoil you. The onsite farm shop sells everything from fresh wild game and traditional costumes. Stunning hikes await you over on the nearby Hirschenstein Mountain. And the guesthouse is only a stone’s throw away from Kurpark Lalling’s bathing spot, Regenhütte’s natural swimming pond and Parstweiher’s pond.

3 HAMBURG

Tiny Escape

Hamburg city centre 120 km
Weekender Edition Hamburg p. 148
Car <90 min
PT <150 min

Sophie Müller artfully merges comfort and nature in her first miniature home — the tiny house movement captured her heart while travelling across Germany, and she spent several months collecting inspiration for her own accommodation. This is how Tiny Escape came to be on a small plot of land in Delve, not far from Eider River. Guided by sustainable practices and natural building principles, she designed every inch of the tiny house herself. The result? An impeccable example of how modernity and minimalism can go hand in hand while still providing sufficient room for relaxation. Tiny Escape is a tiny kingdom in its own right.

Climb up into the sleeping loft on the tiny house’s upper floor to watch the stars glisten through the panoramic windows and listen to the soft melody of rustling treetops. In winter, you can cuddle up in front of the wood-burning stove and watch the sunset through the wide window panes. The onsite bicycles will safely guide you through Delver Koog Nature Reserve; the onsite canoe will take you down Eider River. If you’re craving a fresh sea breeze, you can pick between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea — St. Peter-Ording and Eckernförde can be reached by car in under an hour.

In 2017, Mathias Kuper’s Seedatschen brought Scandinavian flair to Hainer See’s northern shoreline. We recommend these 14 square meters tiny houses called Zweiufer for anyone seeking a trip where distractions are few; a journey where the nearest lake is a stone’s throw away. It’s impressive to see how such a small space can accommodate a living room, kitchen, bathroom and sleeping area. Furnished only with the bare essentials, this is the perfect place to embrace slow living principles — nothing is over the top, everything is well thought out, and comfort is a top priority.

The tiny house one size up called Vierwasser measures 34 square meters. In addition to providing more living space, it also features a south-facing terrace and a communal garden without sacrificing seclusion or comfort. All Seedatschen’s tiny houses are located directly on the lake’s shoreline meaning you can dip your feet into the cool waters all day long. On the lake’s northern shore, you can take your pick from an array of water sports at Wake Beach. Rent a boat from here to enjoy the lake’s vastness or take a detour to the adjacent Haubitz See and explore the surrounding nature reserve.
