Our bathing pond - An oasis in the middle of the green countryside!

The bathing pond has an area of ca. 700 m2 and is certainly a popular relaxation spot for our guests. We provide 1 parasol and 2 sun loungers for each room or apartment. At Hinterburghof, there is no need to place your towel on a sun lounger at 6:00 am to reserve it. The pond is a private facility only available to our guests:

  • 2 sun loungers and 1 parasol
  • Bathing house with changing room, coffee-making facilities, fridge and eating area
  • 2 wooden piers
  • 1 pedalo for up to 5 persons
  • 1 dinghy for ultimate fun
  • 1 jump stone (h = ca. 1 m), jump into the cool water
  • Secluded, surrounded by nature and available to you at any time

The bathing pond is fed with natural spring water, absolutely free of any chemicals. The sunlight shines on the fine shingle beach where water temperatures can reach up to 25 °C.

Depth: The depth between the fine shingle beach and the two wooden piers varies from 1 to 80 cm. The majority of the pond is ca. 160 cm deep, with a small area around the jump stone having a depth of 250 cm.

Whether your idea of relaxation by the water is swimming, losing yourself in a page-turner on the wooden pier or simply lazing in the sun, the pond is the perfect place to unwind and switch off - in the morning, afternoon, or evening.
