Ferienhaus Haußmann and History

Ferienhaus Haußmann

 

Ferienhaus Haußmann was once a farm and, at that time, looked the part.  Pictured are the aunt and mother of Agathe Haußmann gathering water from the well that existed on the property. 

 

In 1894, the Mehrl family built the house and in 1985 it was inherited by Agathe Haußmann (born Agathe Mehrl).  In 1989 the barn and shed were taken down and the first 6 apartments were built.  In 1996 the remaining six apartments were added to the property. 

 

 

Previously, apartments were rented from the front door.  Grandma sat on the red bench and bid travelers on their way through Brunnen welcome, personally renting each apartment to guests.  The bench remains to this day.

 

 

Today, the house looks like this and offers our guests 12 comfortable and cozy apartments for a perfect vacation.

This lake is located between Füssen and Pfronten. Parking, sunbathing area, toilets, and snack stand are all available on-site. 

 

At the Weißensee you can swim, fish, surf (especially in morning wind), or simply walk around the lake. With a bicycle, the trip around the lake is a bit difficult because the path on the forest side off the lake is narrow

 

Alatsee (Lake)

One of the smaller Allgäu lakes, the 1.3 kilometer circumference Alatsee sits nestled in a gorgeous place.  At 15 to 18 meters deep, sits a layer of magenta sulfur bacteria. Above this layer, the lake is oxygen rich, and underneath there is no oxygen.

 

In the Second World War, Luftwaffe engineers conducted experiments here with underwater models.  Iron bars and racks can still be found in the lake. Rumor has it that toward the end of the war, golden treasures held be the German Reichsbank were moved from their previously home at Neuschwanstein Castle and were hidden at the bottom of the laken. 

 

 

The lake is closed to recreational divers and one can only dive with special permission for scientific research. Swimming is allowed and the Alatsee is one of the clearest lakes in the Allgäu.

The Allgäuer novelists Michael Kobr and Volker Klüpfel were inspired by this mysterious story to write their thriller, “Seegrund”.

At the end of the lake you will find the Hotel Alatsee. On their beautiful terrace, you can enjoy a snack and the view. From there you can also continue on the path into the Faulenbacher valley where you will find more swimming lakes and more beautiful sights. 

Forggensee (Lake)

The Forggensee our home lake, is only 50 meters away from Ferienhaus Haußmann.

The lake is the 5th largest lake in Bavaria, at 12 kilometers long and 3 kilometers wide.  With a circumference of 35 kilometers, it is the perfect opportunity for a bicycle tour.  Biking paths are well signed.  Almost every part of the lake can be used for swimming.  With gravel banks and sunbathing lawns almost everywhere, you will surely find a spot.  Furthermore, you can also sail, surf, or fish.

The Forggensee is a reservoir and was developed in 1951.  To complete the project, many residents had to be relocated.  Every winter, the lake is drained, and you can still find walls or other housing remnants.  On May 1st, the water is released back into the reservoir and by June 1st the lake is full.  In October, the water is drained again to allow for mountain run-off in the spring.

This castle served the royal family and Luidwig II used it as summer residence.
