    About Us

    Haus Elfriede is situated in the landmarked village centre of Schwarzenberg. The spacious wooden building with its typical “Bregenzerwälder” (Bregenz Forest) shingles stands in a very sunny location. Wood also plays a significant role in the holiday apartment. Everything is custom-made by craftsmen from the Bregenz Forest.

    While this was important to us, it was mainly about tradition. And sustainability, which is also very important for us, as demonstrated by our eco-friendly wood heating system and hot water produced by our solar energy system.

    We built our home in 2001. Since 2013, we have rented out our approx. 55m² holiday apartment – with plenty of room for up to 6 people, making it ideal for family holidays. The balcony offers an impressive panoramic view of the valley and the mountains.

    But it is not just the furnishings that make our home so special. Time and time again our guests confirm that life amongst the stylish comfort and genuine warmth is simply good. Our guests are supposed to feel at ease.  

    The region and life in the rhythm of the 4 seasons is important to us. We have spent several summers with our children on the mountain. We will be happy to tell you about life in the Bregenz Forest and how traditions and customs are still lived out today.

    For stays of 3 nights and up, you receive the Bregenzerwald Guest Card free from 1 May to 31 October! This grants you entry to any number of excursions with the summer cable cars, eco-friendly trips with the public buses and refreshing, relaxing hours in the open-air pools of the Bregenz Forest.



    We are very centrally located: in just a 3-minute walk, you will reach our bakers for fresh bread rolls, as well as a delicatessen where you can buy many farm products from our region.

    If you feel like fresh milk, we can get this for you from our neighbours!

    Feel free to help yourselves in our herb garden!

    The fruits from our fruit trees are processed into a range of fine brandies by Martin – tastings on request!


    Visit our horses in the stable or in the meadow. You may also stroke and sit on them!

    If possible, your host Martin will also take you on a free carriage ride with them!

    Dokus the horse is also used ecologically to fetch firewood from our forest. Therefore, Dokus enjoys a relaxing holiday on the mountain in summer (July, August).
