  • Restore life force in your sleep. All our flats are equipped with natural beds from Hüsler or Samina. In natural beds, natural materials are used, which have a positive effect on recovery and sleep quality. Therefore, only the highest quality materials are used in the preparation of those products. The stuff of which the 'dream beds' are made of are made from pure natural, breathable cotton, filled with 100% organic sheep's wool, obtained from free roaming sheep. Warming in winter, cooling in summer - pillows and blankets with wool provide a completely natural way for a harmonious and dry-warm bed climate. The unique clamping force of the untreated ash wood slats and the natural elasticity of natural rubber are the success factors for the orthopedic important relief and support of the body during sleep. Here, the free-swinging slat frame is at the centre. ...moreless

  • Grander Water - A lively holiday with revitalized water Our guests will enjoy the special 'Grander water' in the entire 'Haus Otium'. The energized water is a treat - when showering or bathing, drinking from the fountain and of course in our pool and spa area. When Johann Grander discovered the 'revival' of water a few years ago, he would hardly have known what triumph his discovery would be around the globe. With his method, the original force of the water, which is lost due to environmental influences and the transport in pressure lines, is restored. Moreover, through the 'revival' the natural magnetism is enhanced in water. Thus, the structure of water is changed over time and we can speak of finer taste of the water, longer shelf life, enhanced well-being, tastier food, and much more ...moreless
