About the property

The Moosberghaus offers two separate and entirely new equipped apartments. The house can also be rented as one property for extended families and groups (family reunions) up to 8 persons. Cyclists, hikers and disabled persons (groups) are also welcome. The peculiarity about the little town of Rosenthal (smallest independent town of the state of Hessia which obtained town rights in the year of 1327), in the middle of the Burgwald forest, is its wonderful location. Situated in the hugest forest region of Hessia and away from all of the busy roads, you can enjoy the silence. As far as the eye can see: wide valleys with clear creeks and mountains (412m). Friendly citizens knew how to preserve the rural character of the town. Historic buildings, streets out of paving stone and alleys typical of that region tell from the ‘good old times’. As one of the special examples the beautiful town hall situated in the middle of the market place from 1654 with its frameworks which are typical.

The Burgwald forest, ‚Burgwaldtour Christenberg’:: The Burgwald forest 77 square miles, 400 km hiking trails, natural forest, nature reserve ‘Franzosenwiesen’ (engl.: French meadows), bird sanctuary, fairy woods of the Brothers Grimm! The German hiking trail of the year 2004 with quality certificate of the German Hiking Institute is to be found in the Burgwald forest. Unique experiences, terrific nature, landscape and excellent marking of the paths make this forest worth hiking in. Especially recommendable is the tour ‘Burgwaldtour Christenberg’, which leads you through the deep Burgwald forest. Smooth paths, steep sandstone valleys and stretched valleys covered with dark moss characterize the former hunting ground of the Hessian earls. The route, which got honoured as ‘Hiking trail 2004’, leads the hiker from ‘Münchhausen’ to the excavation place ‘Christenberg’ (10 hiking kilometres away from Rosenthal, through the forest). This place used to be a fortification of the Celts and the

Marburg/Lahn:: Your day trip 22 km away from Rosenthal: Venice is known for its thousand bridges, Marburg for its stairs and alleys. Even Jacob Grimm once said: ‘I believe there are more stairs in the streets than there are in the houses.’ Crooked, with many angles and steep, that is up-town Marburg. Here you can still feel and see the Middle Ages. Boris Pasternak also felt that way: ‘If this here was only a town! But it is even a mediaeval fairy tale.’ For good reason Marburg is situated at the ‘German Street of Fairytales’. We will now go up to the castle. Here you can let your gaze wonder over the slanting roofs of the town, the Middle Ages are beginning to disappear and you get aware of the different architecture. These are not the times of Martin Luther and Huldrych Zwingli anymore, who in 1529 had a serious religious debate in Marburg. Here old and cockeyed houses of the ancestors associate with the modern architecture of the 20th century.

Bad Wildungen, German Garden Exhibition of 2006: Bad Wildungen, a famous health resort 30 km away from Rosenthal: - outstanding centre of therapeutic baths and charming town – enchants you with many attractions: picturesque old town with half-timbered houses, magnificent art nouveau, curative springs and Europe’s hugest health-resort gardens between Bad Wildungen and Reinhardshausen. Luxurious health, culture, sports and leisure-time offer makes this town at the national park ‘Kellerwald-Edersee’ a unique experience. Future oriented but still aware of its traditions, contemplative and open-minded at the same time, lively but also very close to nature. An ‘Oasis of peace and rest’ with fairytale surroundings – all of this is Bad Wildungen. Ideal host of the Hessian Garden Exhibition of 2006: From Easter till the harvest festival (172 days) the visitor awaits an exceptional garden exhibition experience with fascinating masterly performances in horticultural arts and a bursting program with arts, culture and music for the whole family.

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung/en in ruhiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Uns (Freizeit-Gruppe von 5 Männern) hat der Aufenthalt sehr gut gefallen. Die Wohnungen sind sehr gut eingerichtet und in den Betten konnte man sehr gut schlafen.

Auch der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war immer sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend! Nochmals vielen Dank dafür! Ich werde diese Ferienwohnung definitiv weiterempfehlen!

Einziger „Kritikpunkt“ ist sowohl Geschwindigkeit als auch Stabilität des WLAN‘s, welche nicht sehr gut war. Das war zwar „ärgerlich“, hat unseren Aufenthalt jedoch nicht getrübt, soll lediglich hier erwähnt werden.

Wie gesagt: Ich werde den Aufenthalt auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und bei Bedarf gerne wieder selbst buchen!

Tolles Ferienhaus - Super ausgestattet!

  • 5 of 5

... haben unser jährliches Geschwistertreffen (6 Oldies) im großzügigen, heimeligen Moosberghaus zelebriert.

Viel Platz in den sauberen und gepflegten Wohnungen und in der Außenanlage (Grillen auch bei nicht so gutem Wetter an/unter überdachter Terrasse), gemütliche und insgesamt praktische Ausstattung, neue, unverbrauchte Matratzen und Lattenroste!!!.

Unaufgeregte, hilfsbereite Vermieter.

Frankenberg, Fritzlar, Edersee usw. sind lohnenswerte Ziele in der näheren Umgebung.


wer mit mehreren Personen in ruhiger Umgebung einen Ausgangspunkt für Aktivitäten sucht, wird hier (zudem kostengünstig) nicht enttäuscht werden.
